Description

I love cookies…especially chocolate chip cookies, but some occasions call for something a little more. So turn simple cookies into Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches and you have a frozen treat. Perfect on a hot summer afternoon or a welcome dessert after a casual barbecue.

Assembling Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

What could be easier than two cookies sandwiched with ice cream? Here are a few tips to make the process simple and give you the results you expected.

  • Keep your cookies in the freezer and start this process with already frozen cookies.
  • Buy individual portion cups of ice cream.
  • Use a small spreader or spatula to knock the round of ice cream out of the portion cup onto a wax paper lined baking sheet.
  • Using a table knife slice the ice cream in half to give you two disks about the size of a cookie.
  • After assembling the ice cream sandwiches put them back in the freezer for at least four hours.

Those Little Spreaders

In my kitchen I have a few sets of those little spreading knives sometimes called pate knives or cheese knives. I keep a little dish of them handy to encourage “single use” in the kitchen always thinking about cross contamination. You need some. They also make a great hostess gift and are especially popular at Christmas. You can easily find them in a kitchen store, here is what I found on Amazon:

From Everyday to Gourmet

To go ‘gourmet’ just decorate your cookie ice cream sandwiches. Kids love to express their creativity so the decorating part could be done right after dinner. Here are a few ideas:

  • Roll the sides in colourful sprinkles, shaved chocolate, chopped nuts or crushed candy.
  • Serve in a bowl like a sundae – drizzle with hot fudge or caramel sauce, top with dollop of whipped cream and end with a cherry on top.
  • Drizzle melted chocolate over the top or dip the whole sandwich half way into melted chocolate.
  • Serve ice cream sandwiches on a pedestal tray with candles or sparklers for a fun birthday dessert.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie

Of course the cookie matters. You just need to get in the kitchen and find your favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Then stick with it and experiment with Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches.

I have previously posted a chocolate chip cookie pizza recipe made with quinoa flour. Another cookie baking spree resulted in two more posts for Chocolate Chip Cookies with Teff Flour and Chocolate Chip Cookies, made with my own gluten free flour mix. As with all my recipes the description is full of helpful tips related to that specific recipe.

Let me know in the comments below how you served your chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches.

 

Ingredients

12 chocolate chip cookies (a sort-of-soft cookie works the best)
6 individual portion sized gluten free vanilla ice cream cups
GARNISH - colourful sprinkles, chocolate chips, nuts or crushed candy

Directions

1
Freeze cookies.
2
Line baking sheet with waxed paper. Remove cookies from the freezer.
3
Remove 1 ice cream cup from the freezer. Using a small spreader knock the round of ice cream out of the portion cup onto the tray. Using a table knife slice the ice cream in half to make two disks. Place each disk on top of a cookie.
4
Top ice cream with another cookie. Immediately place both ice cream sandwiches in the freezer. Repeat until all 6 sandwiches are made.
5
The ice cream sandwiches can be individually wrapped in wax paper held together with an elastic band. Alternately store in an airtight container. Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
6
Serve straight from the freezer or place in the fridge to soften slightly for 15-30 minutes before serving.
7
The sides of the ice cream sandwiches can be garnished with sprinkles after assembly or right when served.
