((i scream! you scream! series)) sugar cookie & strawberry ice cream sandwiches

shufflin' things around again this week! 

I am seriously GIDDY every week when these posts are "due." I hope you guys are enjoying this series as much as I am. Today, let's make some ice cream sandwiches. The flavor combinations are limitless, but I have to say this sugar cookie & strawberry ice cream combination really satisfied my sweet tooth! It was a refreshing treat, that's for sure. 

To make the ice cream sandwiches:
Make a standard sugar cookie that you roll into balls & bake, rather than rolling flat and cutting shapes out of. I find they're a bit sturdier this way. ((recipe at the bottom!))

Scoop out some ice cream and put in a 9X13. I used Blue Bell Strawberry. When it's melted a bit, stir until you can spread out & make a layer out of it. Mine was about an inch tall. Place back into freezer overnight or until firm.

Once your cookies are cooled & your ice cream is frozen again:
Using a cookie cutter, donut punch, or mason jar lid...whatever you can get your hands on, cut out circles in the ice cream. You may need to use a knife & spoon to cut the surrounding ice cream and scoop it away. Place on top of one cookie and sandwich it with another cookie.

((option: roll sides in sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc))

 Place in freezer for a few hours (or one hour if you are impatient like I am) until it's all hardened together. 

Next time I make ice cream sandwiches, I want to make a chocolate cookie with mint chocolate chip ice cream! YUM.
