Contributed By: Parker


1 package chocolate cake mix (regular size)
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 gallon ice cream


1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, shortening, butter, egg, water and vanilla until well blended. Divide into four equal parts.
2. Between waxed paper, roll one part into a 10x6-in. rectangle. Remove top piece of waxed paper and invert dough onto a ungreased baking sheet. Remove second piece of waxed paper. Score the dough into eight pieces, each 3x2-1/2 in. Repeat with remaining dough.
3. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until puffed. Immediately cut along the scored lines and prick holes in each piece with a fork. Cool on wire racks.
4. Cut ice cream into 16 slices, each 3x2-1/2x1 in. Place ice cream slice between two chocolate cookies; wrap in waxed paper or plastic wrap. Freeze on a baking sheet overnight. May be frozen for up to 2 months.
