Make Ice Cream Sandwiches with Your Favorite Cookie Mixes
by Dennis Weaver
You can have a ton of fun with ice cream sandwiches. It’s simple to make them like those above, simply two cookies with ice cream smashed in the middle. We’ll even share a few of the tricks we’ve found to make them even better than those you can get from the grocery store.
Use parchment paper. With the same surface and the same temperature, your cookies will spread the same each time.
The Best Ice Cream
Use an Ice Cream Scoop - Once again, uniformity matters here. By using an ice cream scoop, you’ll be getting the same amount of ice cream on each ice cream sandwich, and it will be easier to decorate.
Avoid the Ice Cream Mess - You’ll need the ice cream to be soft enough that you can squish the ice cream sandwich together. Then you can freeze your ice cream sandwiches for an hour, so the ice cream won’t melt all over the place.
The Squeegee Technique
Get Creative - Maybe the “squeegee technique” isn’t a real thing, but it will make decorating your ice cream sandwiches easier. Use a knife or a small rubber spatula to scrape the edges of the ice cream that are overflowing from the cookie.
This way, you have a flat edge to roll into the jimmies.
