Brownie-Ice Cream Sandwich
There’s something about summer that makes me super nostalgic. I can’t help yearning for those long afternoons with nothing to do. These ice-cream sandwiches are a cinch to throw together and are sure to bring back that endless-summer feeling.
1 stick unsalted butter, melted, plus more for pan
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 pints ice cream, softened
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 10-by-15-inch jelly-roll pan. Line with parchment, leaving a 2-inch overhang on short sides, then butter paper.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together butter and sugar, then whisk in eggs and salt. Add flour and cocoa and mix until just smooth. Spread in pan. Bake until brownie is dry to the touch and edges have begun to pull away from pan, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes. Using paper overhang, transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
3. Transfer brownie to a work surface and cut in half crosswise. Cover pan with a large sheet of plastic wrap and place one cake half on it. Spread with ice cream, invert remaining brownie half on top, and wrap tightly in plastic. Freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
4. Unwrap, cut into 12 pieces, and serve.
