Here they are, ice cream sandwiches…

Here is a photo of the ice cream sandwiches, waiting to be bagged and tagged for the event I wrote about here.
I do not take my job as ice-cream sandwich maker lightly. It is a fine art to create a sandwich that doesn’t collapse when you take the first bite, due to overly-soft ice cream or overly-hard cookie. I am pleased to report that my Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies had just the right chewiness and give to accommodate the ice cream, even as it melted in the eighty-degree weather.
The next event is on June 18, and I have been invited back. However, that event will also feature an ice cream vendor. Which leaves me wondering, do I repeat with the ice cream sandwiches, or do I go back to huge cookies? For this week’s event I made, and sold, thirty of these beauties. I expect the turnout at the next event to be bigger, but having an ice cream vendor there throws a kink in any ability to predict what my customers might want.
What do you think?
