On Sunday afternoon, I had some time to kill so I decided to whip up some cookies. I just wanted a small batch. JJ likes oatmeal raisin, and I like chocolate chip, so I made a combination of the two.
We also had some ice cream in the freezer, so on a whim after dinner, I decided to make them into ice cream sandwiches! I think it's best to keep the cookies in a tupperware and make them right before eating them because I don't like frozen/cold cookies, but they can be made ahead of time, wrapped in plastic or parchment, and stored in the freezer.
