These Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies have your favorite flavor ice cream IN the cookies!
1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
1/2 cup ice cream use your favorite flavor
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups chocolate chips or a combination of white and chocolate chips
Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. While still hot, add both sugars and mix on low with an electric mixer until combined. Add ice cream and mix until smooth.
Add egg and vanilla extract, mix for just a few seconds, then add baking soda and salt. Mix until smooth, then mix in flour slowly. Mix dough just until it comes together, then stir in chocolate chips. Scoop 2 tablespoon balls of dough onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place cookies 2” apart on cookie sheets covered with parchment paper. (If you’ve chilled them longer than 4 hours you might want to press them down slightly with the palm of your hand otherwise they won’t flatten totally.) Bake for about 9-11 minutes, until they start to get golden around the edges. Cool at least 5 minutes on cookie sheets before moving to a rack to cool completely. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days or frozen for up to 1 month.
