Ice Cream Cake

30 Dec

My brother-in-law turned 40 over the Christmas holidays, so we had to make him feel just a little bit old. ūüôā I had fun with this cake, but I felt like I cheated a little‚Ķok, a lot! The only part I actually made was the cookie layer. But it turned out so good, I think I’d cheat again, regardless of my culinary conscience.

Ingredients:

Cookie Layer:
8 Tbsp (1/2 cup) butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and lightly grease an 8″-round springform pan.¬†In a mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar.¬† Add the egg, then beat until pale and slightly fluffy. Whisk in the vanilla.¬†In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Fold the dry ingredient mixture into the wet ingredients, until everything is incorporated. Then, fold in the chocolate chips. Spread this dough into an even layer in the prepared pan.¬†Bake the cookie layer at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the middle should come out clean. Once the cookie is done, allow it to cool¬†completely¬†while in the pan.

Top cookie layer with softened ice cream – flavor of choice (I used butter pecan). Place springform pan in freezer and let ice cream set. Once hardened (1-2 hours), unlatch springform edge and remove. Frost with whipped cream or whipped cream frosting.

(I used crushed chocolate filled Oreos for the ‘dirt’ and Buttercream Frosting for the lettering)
