The only thing better than a cookie is two cookies. And the only better than two cookies is when they are sandwiched together with ice cream in the center. Wouldn’t you agree? Besides the fact that ice cream sandwiches are purely indulgent, August 2nd was National Ice Cream Sandwich Day! To be honest, I don’t know much about it, but if it didn’t exist and even if I were pulling your leg… would it really matter? I mean what’s the worse thing that could happen? You make delicious ice cream sandwiches and you and your friends and family get to eat them? Shew, sounds tragic. haha
I am sorry to report that I don’t have an exact quantity of how many ice cream sandwiches that this recipe will make. You see I got carried away playing around with my food. I wasn’t happy enough with making chocolate waffle cookies, I used the same batter and make waffle cones and bowls as well. So if you end up with more cookie dough or extra ice cream, just let me know and I will take it off your hands. :)
You can follow my directions for sizing, shapes, thicknesses, etc. or you can get creative. If you have a favorite cookie cutter you’d like to use for these sandwiches, definitely use it. You will be cutting the cookies and the ice cream with it. Like most everything done in your own kitchen, the beauty of these being homemade is that you can customize them however you’d like. If you are at all nervous about exploring right off the bat, I recommend following my directions to a “T” so you know what to expect and then you will begin to feel more comfortable with unleashing your inner artist.
If you want that rustic look to your ice cream sandwiches, you could simply slap a scoop of ice cream in between two cookies, eat it up and call it good. And if I were to be eating these all by myself, sitting behind the couch on the floor, thats what I’d do… but then again I share everything I make, not only with my husband but anyone who comes to visit. And when it comes to presenting raw, gluten-free, dairy-free foods to the typical SAD eater, I want it to be a not only a delicious but a beautiful experience.
Prepare the ice cream and cookies as indicated in their recipes, except for a few changes.
Prepare the cookie tops. Decorate however you see fit.
Be sure to have a plain bottom paired with each top,
to ensure that your ice cream sandwiches don’t go top or bottomless!
Or go rustic…
