strawberry ice cream + sugar cookie ice cream sandwich recipe


Summer is just around the corner, so 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.

  8. Everyone else in my family is big on ice cream sandwiches, so maybe they'd like this to shake things up from the store-bought variety. Thank you again!
