Maple walnut cookies were a staple of my Vermont college cafeteria. Those devilish cookies stole my slender figure! I paired the cookies, which are brown and buttery with a cool ginger ice cream and piled them into luscious ice cream sandwiches. The great thing about homemade ice cream sandwiches is that the ice cream is very soft when coming out of the ice cream maker which makes it very easy to stuff the sandwiches. —OB Cookie
