Cones are out. Cookies are in. We've scoured the nation for the tastiest ice cream sandwiches; some you can order online and some are worth the road trip. Here are our favorites:
- Pick any flavor at San Francisco's Humphry Slocombe--try their popular Vietnamese coffee ice cream--and the parlor will sandwich it between two tasty fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. Those soft, decadent cookies nearly steal the show from the filling. Who knew ice cream specialists could be cookie connoisseurs, too?

- Brooklyn's One Girl Cookies merges two old-school favorites in an updated, dangerously addictive dessert: the whoopee-pie ice cream sandwich. Moist, tender cookies that are slightly crispy around the edges (our favorite is the pumpkin) are filled with fresh vanilla ice cream.
- Ruby Jewel Treats, whose ice cream sandwiches debuted at Portland area farmers' markets, may have achieved the perfect cookie-to-ice-cream
