HOW to BUILD an ICE CREAM Sandwich!

6 Sep

I have done some research and National Ice Cream day is the 3rd Sunday of July. Problem is when we were returning from the San Juan’s in August, I heard that National Ice Cream day was that day. I promptly decided that I needed to make ice cream sandwiches that day. Not store bought. Home made!

Sequence of events…
Made ice cream sandwiches…in August…
Took pictures…
Did not do the post on how to make an ice cream sandwich…
Dropped and broke my phone…
Lost all of my pictures because my iCloud is full…
Decided that I still wanted to do a post…
Bought all the ingredients to make them again…

You can make these as easy or hard as you want. No matter what. They aren’t that hard to make! šŸ™‚

All you need:
12 or 16 cookies: (homemade, cookie dough, store bought)
1 pint or quart of ice cream
Serrated knife (I have a good bread knife I like to use)
Depending on what size—you might need a circle cookie cutter

I made 12 cookies(chocolate chip). But I had a quart of ice cream(coffee bean blast–from Trader Joes).

Let the cookies cool.

Since the quart circumference is bigger than the circumference of the cookies, I needed a cookie cutter. (The first time around I tried to cut the ice cream but made a big mess. That is when I thought of the cookie cutter.)

Don’t take the ice cream out of freezer until you are totally ready!

Cut about a 1/2 inch Disk.

Use the cookie cutter to make a circle(about the size of your cookies. Had I used a pint I would not have needed the cookie cutter.)

Start to assemble sandwich:

As much as I wanted to eat this:

It needed to go in the freezer! My master photographer was also the master “wrapper”:

We quickly realized that we were out of saran wrap so I had him wrap them in wax paper and then foil.

We could not wait longer than an hour so the first ones were a bit soft.

Delicious though!!

If you can wait about 4 hours they are perfect!

What is your favorite ice cream? What kind of ice cream and cookies would you assemble?

    I’m wondering what you did with the extra ice cream you cut out around the cookie cutter. I’m hilarious, I know šŸ™‚
