"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:  
2-3/4 c. all purpose flour, plus more for work surface
1/2 c. cocoa powder
2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
12 T. (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 T. milk
2 to 2-1/2 pints strawberry ice cream (Cold Stone is my favorite, mix in strawberries)

Directions:
Directions:
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt and set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter, vanilla, and sugar. Add eggs and milk, and mix until combined. Add reserved flour mixture, and mix on low until incorporated, scraping the sides of the bowl at least once. Divide the dough in half, and shape each half into a flat disk. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 1 hour. Heat oven to 350. Roll dough out on a floured work surface, releasing dough with an offset spatula every few turns of the rolling pin. Roll dough to 1/8 inch thick. Cut dough using heart shaped cookie cutters 2-1/2 to 3 inches in diameter, making sure each cookie has a match to make the sandwich. Place hearts on a parchment-lined cookie sheet; chill until firm, about 30 min. Remove from refrigerator; use a fork to prick the cookies with holes. Bake 12-15 min. or until just firm. Let cool on cookie sheet; transfer to a wire rack. With the underside of half of the cookies facing up, spoon softened strawberry ice cream about 1/2 inch thick to cover one side. Place matching cookie on top of ice cream, top side facing out. Transfer immediately to the freezer to harden; repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve directly from the freezer. Sandwiches can be kept stored in an airtight container for several days.
