A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into this dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don’t like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own!
2. Whiz butter and sugar together in a food processor. Add eggs and continue to whiz. Add chocolate chips and whiz until they are ground into small bits
3. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and add to the food processor. Pulse until incorporated.
4. Roll dough into balls the size of golf balls. Place on a baking sheet and press down to flatten. Bake for about 6-8 minutes. Let cool.
5. Place a cookie on a baking sheet and top with one heaping scoop of ice cream. Put another cookie on top and push down until the ice cream spreads out and reaches the edges. It should be about an inch thick and evenly dispersed. Continue until desired number of sandwiches have been assembled and put in the freezer. You may need to put each sandwich into the freezer immediately after assembly to avoid excessive melting.
