Ice cream sandwiches

These cookies are great for making ice cream sandwiches. Don't bake them too long or the cookies will be too crisp and won't make a soft sandwich.

2 squares (1 oz) semisweet baking chocolate
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ½ cups flour
½ cup dark cocoa powder
¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt

Microwave chocolate on high until melted. Beat butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Stir in melted chocolate. Sift together flour, cocoa, soda and salt and stir into chocolate mixture. Form into a disc and refrigerate until chilled (2 hours).

Preheat oven to 350. Roll dough out to ⅛" on a Silpat and cut to desired shape. Prick with wooden skewer and bake 8-10 minutes. Cool completely before making sandwiches.
