{Yum} Easiest Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches. Ever.

Somehow this Summer I managed to make it through 16 flights, 12 check-point securities, a train, a ship, and countless Uber rides, without so much as a single sniffle or pain...but the last day of Summer break rolls around, and I come down with a wicked cold. I guess it's back-to-school-itis, which if you're wondering, is a real thing. #exceptitsnot

I can't see through my watery-eyes, and I'm mouth-breathing like a beast, but that didn't stop me from whipping up our favorite easy-breezy Summer dessert this weekend...ice cream cookie sandwiches.

Hi Sugarplum | Easy Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches



{What You Need}

1 Package of Large Cookies (or make your own, but why?)
1 Pint Ice Cream (I chose Cherry Garcia, because duh!)

{What You Do}

*Using a sharp, serrated knife, cut the ice cream in rings...yep, right through the package.

*Place a slice of ice cream on the underside of a cookie and peel the package off.

It really doesn't get any simpler, and takes less than five minutes. And if your family has that thing called self-control, and for some reason you don't eat the whole batch in a single sitting, just wrap the leftovers individually in clear wrap, and store in the freezer. #whatareleftovers

The other great thing is the countless cookie and ice cream combinations you can create! This batch was brownie cookies with cherry garcia...we've also made chocolate chip cookies with chocolate ice cream, and sugar cookies with strawberry ice cream. #gitinmahbelly

What combos would you make? Do you have a simple 5-minute dessert?

  1. Ok how easy is this?! I never have thought to cut through the container of ice cream. My oldest has been saying all summer "When Blue Bell is back we need to make ice from sandwiches." She will love this idea! Feel better soon!

  8. I would never have thought to cut the carton that way. It's really a genius move. Hope you feel better soon. Those summer colds are the worst. It has been going around our house as well. Hope the kiddos have a great first week of school.

  11. Can I just say -- thank you! I have been trying to figure out how to do this my whole life, lol. Like, how does ice cream go from a scoop to a flat disk between two cookies? Well, now I know. Thank you!
