DIRECTIONS

Combine all the cookie ingredients and mix with a fork until crumbly.

Transfer onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Spread them out so they will bake evenly.

Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350F

Let them cool for at least 15 minutes. They will not be crunchy immediately after removing from the oven, but will become crunchy as they cool.

Blend the ice cream ingredients in a blender or food processor.
