Hello June!  Although I am guilty in indulging in a scoop or two of ice cream any time of year, nothing screams summer like our favorite frozen treats.  And really, what better way is there to eat one dessert than with another?  The idea of ice cream sandwiches always seem extra decadent and sinful, but sometime you just gotta go for it.  These SEA SALT AND DARK CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES pair effortlessly with nostalgic STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM, and their versatility with other ice cream flavors is endless.

Unfortunately, my ice cream maker got left behind in California.  However, quality ice cream or gelato is pretty easy to come by these days.  For the cookie base, I did not want to stray too far from a classic chocolate chip cookie, but did want to kick the flavors up a notch.  I've topped the cookies with sea salt flakes and used chunks of my favorite dark chocolate Callebaut instead of the traditional chocolate chips from a bag.  This recipe is fairly basic, but beautiful cookies- crisp enough to withstand the ice cream.
