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. Voilà--Maple Walnut Ice Cream. Perfect.
