Malt Shoppe Ice Cream Sandwiches

1 c. butter
¾ c. brown sugar

1 egg
2 t. vanilla
2 ¼ c. flour
2 T. instant chocolate drink mix
1 t. baking soda
½ t. salt
2 c. malted milk balls, crushed
About 18 small scoops Blue Bell Malt Shoppe Ice Cream

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Cream butter and sugars in mixing bowl.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Combine flour, drink mix, baking soda and salt.  Gradually add to creamed mixture.  Stir in malted milk balls.  Shape into 1½-inch balls.  Place two inches apart on greased baking sheets.  Bake 10 – 12 minutes.  Cool for one minute before removing from pans to wire racks.  Cool completely.  This will make about three dozen cookies.  For each sandwich, place scoop of ice cream on flat surface of one cookie.  Press flat surface of second cookie on top.  Gently press cookies together to spread ice cream to edges of cookies.  Use enough ice cream to have an ice cream layer about 1/2-inch thick.  Repeat sandwich steps to make additional sandwiches.  Serve immediately or wrap each sandwich in plastic wrap and freeze up to 24 hours.  Makes about 18 servings.
