Shamrock Ice Cream Sandwiches

Happy St Patrick's Day!

3/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
3 to 4 drops of green food coloring
1 pint ice-cream or frozen yogurt any flavor
3 1/2 to 5 inch shamrock cookie cutter

Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar and egg yolk in a medium bowl. Add flour, baking powder, salt and green food coloring. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate about 4 hours or until firm.

Roll dough on floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out cookies with shamrock cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly brown around the edges. Remove cookies and place on wire racks to cool. Cool completely.

Remove ice-cream from freezer and let stand at room temperature to soften slightly, about 10 minutes. Spread 4 to 5 tablespoons ice-cream onto flat side of half of the cookies. Place the remaining cookies, flat side down on ice-cream. Press cookies together lightly. Wrap each sandwich in foil. Freeze until firm, about 2 hours or overnight.
