mmmm!!! Chocolate

As you know, I don’t cook. I don’t like to, I don’t know how to. For me is a waste of time, it takes more time to cook than to eat the food you cooked. But when I saw this recipe I thought: mmmm I wish I could make this, looks so yummi!! And it’s probably easy to bake but I don’t know a thing about cooking and even less about baking, but my grandma is the best in the kitchen, well also my dad and my brother, but for desserts my grandma is the best, so I might ask her to bake this for me…. ok, ok, I will ask her to teach me to bake this!
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….Como ya habran leido anteriormente yo no cocino, no me gusta y ademas no se como cocinar. En mi punto de vista es una perdida de tiempo, a veces tardas mas tiempo en cocinar que en comerte lo que acabas de cocinar. Pero cuando vi esta receta me dije a mi misma: mmm ojala supiera como hacer esto, se ve delicioso!! y tal vez sea sencillo de hacer, pero no se nada de como hornear o preparar algun postre asi, pero mi abuela es la mejor cocinera, bueno y mi hermano y mi papa tambien, pero cuando se trata de postres mi abuela es la mejor, asi que t al vez le pida que me prepare esto…. Ok, ok, ok, esta bien, le pedire que me enseñe a hornear esto!

Chocolate Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

INGREDIENTS
Makes 24

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 to 2 1/2 pints strawberry ice cream, slightly softened
DIRECTIONS
1.- In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter, vanilla, and sugar. Add eggs and milk, and mix until combined. Add reserved flour mixture, and mix on low speed until incorporated, scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula at least once. Divide the dough in half, and shape each half into a flat disk. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap, and chill until firm, about 1 hour.
2.- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface; use an offset spatula to unstick the dough every few turns of the rolling pin. Roll dough to an 1/8-inch thickness. Cut dough using a variety of heart-shaped cookie cutters from 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter, making sure there is a top and bottom cookie for each sandwich. Place hearts on a parchment-lined baking sheet; chill until firm, about 30 minutes. Remove from refrigerator; use a fork to prick holes all over the surface of the cookies. Bake until firm, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool slightly on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
3.- Using half the cookies, spoon softened strawberry ice cream about 1/2 inch thick on each underside. Place matching cookie on top of ice cream, top-side facing out. Transfer immediately to freezer to harden; repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve directly from the freezer. Sandwiches can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for 3 to 4 days.
