Honey Walnut Ice Cream Sandwiches
Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

For a chocolate cookie dough, substitute 3/4 cup (175 mL) flour with 3/4 cup (175 mL) cocoa powder.

For even more variations, pat chopped walnuts, shaved chocolate, toasted coconut, or sprinkles onto the sides of the sandwiches.

The cookie dough can be prepared in advance and stored in the freezer for up to two weeks.

The walnut cookies can be baked in advance and kept in an air-tight container for three days or in the freezer for up to two weeks.
