Happy Labor Day! I hope your day was as relaxing as mine! This weekend I spent time at the lake visiting with friends and family, and then headed over to my parents’ house for some pizza and dessert.
As a huge fan of Blue Bell Cookies ‘n Cream ice-cream and Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies, I was in dessert heaven today!
My sister is an awesome baker. The monster cookie bars she made last week before her wedding were amazing, and the ice-cream sandwiches she made this week were just as good!
While Brittany was on her Hawaiian honeymoon last week, she and her husband Colby were laying out by the pool, when they saw a cooler that had a picture of an ice-cream sandwich on it. Unfortunately when they lifted the lid of the cooler, there were only drumsticks. 🙁 Colby was disappointed, so when they returned to Dallas, Brittany decided to make homemade ice-cream sandwiches for him to enjoy!
Lucky for me, when I came to visit this weekend, there were leftovers! What’s great about homemade ice-cream sandwiches is that you can customize them any way you’d like. Mix and match your cookies (sugar, snickerdoodle, chocolate chip oatmeal raisin, white chocolate cranberry, double chocolate chip, white chocolate macadamia nut, etc.) with your favorite ice-cream flavor (vanilla, cookies ‘n cream, chocolate, strawberry, birthday cake, cookie dough, mint chocolate chip, coffee, butter pecan, the list goes on.)
- A little side note…. Pokey O’s of Dallas supposedly has the best ice-cream sandwiches around. I’ve never tried one, but that’s about to change soon!
Homemade Ice-Cream Sandwiches
1 batch of your favorite cookie recipe (I recommend Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies)
2 pints of your favorite ice-cream (I recommend Blue Bell Cookies ‘n Cream)
1. Bake cookies according to recipe directions. Let cool completely.
2. Place one scoop of ice-cream on the cookie. Place second cookie on top.
3. Eat immediately or wrap individually in plastic wrap and freeze. If frozen, remove from freezer about 5 minutes just prior to eating.
