Vegan MoFo Day 27: Pumpkin Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

I was having trouble deciding what to make for today. I got a bunch of veggies in my CSA share yesterday, so I really wanted to make some of those for dinner instead of something pumpkinny. So I thought pumpkin cookies for dessert would be terrific, so I picked up my copy of The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur by Kelly Peloza. When I saw the picture of the Chewy Pumpkin Spice Cookies in the book, they looked like they would be perfect with some ice cream sandwiched between.

Chewy Pumpkin Cookies

Kelly's picture, not mine. Don't they look like they're dying to be sandwiched?

The cookies were amazing. Perfect spice, almost like a gingerbread cookie, but with some pumpkin in there as well. The only thing I'd do differently is use parchment paper underneath. I didn't use any because I didn't have it on hand. They didn't stick a lot, but my spatula isn't that thin, so a few of them ended up breaking when I tried to remove them.

Now, for the ice cream in between, vanilla seemed too...vanilla for these delicious cookies, so I fancied it up a bit. I spooned about a cup of vanilla ice cream into a small bowl, added a handful of walnut pieces, and drizzled in some maple syrup. VoilĂ --Maple Walnut Ice Cream.  Perfect.
