Servings 12


  • 12×17-inch jelly roll pan


  • 2 1/4 cups flour (all purpose or gluten free)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 16 tablespoons butter (2 sticks)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 5-6 cups vanilla ice cream (softened)


Bake the Chocolate Chip Pan Cookie:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Butter the bottom of a 12×17-inch jelly roll pan, then line the bottom with parchment or waxed paper. Butter the sides of the pan.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer, beat the butter, sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, then add vanilla extract. Mix on low speed until incorporated.
  • With mixer on low speed, gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the butter mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Spread the chocolate chip cookie dough batter evenly in the pan, leaving about 1 inch of space between the edge of the dough and the sides of the pan on all sides.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. You want the cookie slightly underbaked.
  • Cool completely.
  • Cut the cookie down the center of the longer side, to make two rectangles. If cookie is very soft, you can freeze it for 1 hour to set it before assembling the sandwich.

Assemble the Ice Cream Sandwiches:

  • Spread the softened ice cream evenly over one of the cookie rectangles.
  • Carefully transfer the other rectangle on top by lifting up the parchment paper to make a large ice cream sandwich. Freeze for at least 3 hours.
  • Transfer the large ice cream sandwich to a cutting board and cut with a large, sharp knife into smaller rectangles. For sharp, clean edges, trim off 1/2-inch from all sides of large sandwich before cutting into rectangles.
  • Wrap each ice cream sandwich in plastic wrap and store in a resealable plastic gallon sized freezer bag until ready to eat.
