Masters Copycat: Georgia Peach Ice Cream Sandwich

T-minus 5 days until one of my favorite weeks of the year!  The Masters!  While I love all PGA golf tournaments, there is always just something special about that week in April.  I love how the whole country (even typical non-golf fans) turn their tvs to Augusta National.   It's the most unbelievable place, too.  Mike and I were lucky enough to go to a tournament round two years ago, and we're so excited to be heading back this year for a practice round.  What's great about a practice round is that I can bring my camera, so you know I'll be taking tons of photos.  While tickets to The Masters can cost an arm and a leg on resale sites (if you don't get drawn for the lottery), the great thing about the tournament is the cost of merchandise and food.  Both are more than reasonable; so much so that there are articles about eating every single item on the Augusta menu in one day. (Spoiler: it only cost $53.)  One of my favorite menu items is the Georgia Peach Ice Cream Sandwich.  I might have had 2 when we went in 2015 and started making them last year.  They're super easy to make and last in the freezer for at least a couple of weeks.  I made my first batch last weekend, and to be honest, I'll probably have them in the freezer all spring: they're that good.    
Ingredients:
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- half gallon peach ice cream

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3. Beat together the butter and sugar on medium speed until fluffy.
4. Add the egg, then egg yolk, then vanilla, and finally dry mixture, mixing each time until combined.
4. Scoop heaping tablespoons of dough into your head and roll them each into a ball, flattening it slightly.
6. Place each ball on a greased cookie sheet.
7. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes, just until edges are golden brown.
8. Cook the cookies completely on a wire rack before scooping ice cream in between two cookies and wrapping each sandwich in aluminum foil.
If you're not lucky enough to live near a Publix, I've heard this homemade peach ice cream is very good.  Honestly, though, I've never had anything better Publix, so don't go above and beyond if you don't need to - haha.

What's your favorite springtime dessert?

Yum - these sound delicious! I can't wait for the Masters to start, either. Enjoy going to one of the practice rounds!

Yum! I actually just attended my first PGA tournament a few weeks ago in Palm Harbor, Florida, and it was a lot of fun! I've never been into golf much so I was expecting to be bored, but watching it live was really exciting!
