Preparation:

  1. Chocolate Chip Cookies: Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Beat together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and corn syrup until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  2. Whisk flour with baking soda and salt; stir into butter mixture. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  3. Drop dough onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, to make 16 cookies; flatten slightly into 1 1/2- inch (3 cm) rounds. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden; let cool completely on racks.
  4. Ice Cream Filling: Place ice cream in bowl; mash with potato masher to soften slightly. Gently fold in pie filling. Return to freezer for about 1 hour or until set.
  5. Working quickly, scoop about 1/3 cup (75 mL) ice cream mixture onto each of 8 cookies; sandwich with remaining cookies. Roll edges in mini chocolate chips until evenly coated. Freeze on baking sheet for 2 to 3 hours or until firm. Wrap in parchment paper and store in freezer until ready to serve.
