For this recipe you will need the following ingredients:
2 sticks of unsalted butter (at room temperature)
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground allspice
1 cup of golden raisins
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
3 cups of Virginia oats
Ice cream – your favourite flavour!
1/2 cup of finely chopped pecans, for garnish (optional)
First preheat oven to 350 degrees F / 180c.
Place the butter, sugars in a large bowl and using an electric mixer, cream the ingredients together until light and fluffy. This will take about 3 minutes. Now crack the eggs into a cup and beat for approximately 1 minute.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and allspice. Gradually add large spoonfuls of the dry mixture into the creamed mixture. Once incorporated, fold in the raisins, pecans, and oats with a rubber spatula.
Now add a small ice cream scoop of dough onto a paper lined baking tray, spacing about 1-inch apart. Pat the tops down slightly and then bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes. Remove the cookies and place on a wire rack to cool completely for 45 minutes before making sandwiches.
Remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow to soften. Turn the cookies face side up on the counter and add a spoon of ice cream on the cookies. Using a spatula, spread evenly to the edges, top the ice cream with a second cookie and press down to stick. Roll ice cream edges in the chopped pecans (optional).
Freeze for 2 hours or until solid and enjoy!
