Cherry-Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches
When you sandwich creamy vanilla ice cream between two chewy, cinnamon-enhanced oatmeal cookies that are studded with sweet cherries and chocolate chips, the stuff dreams are made of come to life. So put these Cherry-Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches at the top of your to-do list.
Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl.
Cream butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla in a bowl with a mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Add flour mixture to creamed mixture; mix on low speed just until combined.
Stir in oats, cherries, and chocolate chips.
Drop dough onto prepared baking sheets by 2 Tbsp. measures (#30 scoop). Bake cookies until edges are set, 15–17 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
To assemble, top a cookie, flat side up, with ⅓–½ cup ice cream and a second cookie. Press cookies to flatten ice cream in middle; serve immediately or freeze until firm.
To keep them in large pieces, gently incorporate chopped cherries (either fresh or frozen) into dough.
