This year, for the Dingle Food and Wine Festival, we’re not going gourmet with some of the unusual flavour arrays we’ve done in the past. Instead, we’re going to do something that’s very delicious and simple – ice cream cookies!
We’ll serve them with a glass of Kerry cow milk that we’ll get straight off our farmer and pasteurise. We’ll also do a mini Kerry cow milkshake.
I hope those of you who make it to the festival enjoy it, and I do hope you’ll make it. It’s really one of the best times to be in Dingle, and there’s certainly no shortage of things to do and eat!
If you want to make these ice cream sandwiches at home, here’s how to do it:
Murphys Ice Cream Cookies
1. Make my chocolate chip cookie recipe (here).
2. Wait until the cookies are cool.
3. Spread a half scoop of vanilla ice cream (we’ll use Kerry cow ice cream, but vanilla is close!) on the flat side of one cookie.
4. Spread a half scoop of chocolate ice cream (or dark chocolate ice cream) on the flat side of a second cookie.
5. Press the two cookies together.
6. Put them in the freezer to harden (if the ice cream is too soft, it will be much harder to eat it).
