Hi everyone! I have a very simple recipe to share with you today – Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches.
This is a basic dessert, and I’m sure you’ve had it before. But sometimes simple is best, especially if it includes cookies and ice cream…you can’t really go wrong with those two.
For the cookie portion, I used my favorite Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies. I made them just a little smaller than I normally do, and rolled the dough into uniform balls (I did have a few cookies left over). For the ice cream I used Dreyer’s Mint Brownie flavor.
I loved this combination – it was so refreshing. Of course there’s a lot of potential with different cookie and ice cream flavors. The possibilities are endless!
Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
Makes 25 sandwiches
50 cookies of your choice
1/2 gallon ice cream (flavor of your choice)
Bake cookies. Make sure they have cooled completely before moving on to the ice cream step.
Let the ice cream sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes or until it’s a bit soft. Place one scoop (or a little less than 1/4 cup) on the flat side of one cookie. If needed, you can press it down or spread it a little with a spatula. Place a second cookie (flat side down) on top of the ice cream and press the sandwich together lightly.
Place the finished cookies on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. You may need to stop a couple times during the process to put the sandwiches you’ve already made into the freezer if they start getting melty. If needed, you may also have to put the ice cream back in for a few minutes – if the sandwiches are too melty they will look messy.
Place the sandwiches in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until they are firm. Enjoy!
