  1. Stir together sugar, cornstarch and salt in large saucepan. Add eggs; stir until smooth and well blended. Gradually stir in milk, blending well. Cook, stirring constantly over medium heat, until mixture boils; boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat; blend in peppermint extract, light cream and whipping cream. Chill.

  3. Prepare CHOCOLATE COOKIES. Allow ice cream to soften slightly. Place generous 1/2 cup of ice cream on flat side of 1 cookie; spread evenly with spatula. Top with another cookie, pressing together lightly; repeat with remaining cookies. Wrap individually in foil; freeze until firm. Makes 12 (3-1/4 inch) ice cream sandwiches.
