Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

These ice cream cookie sandwiches will make your summertime fun that much better!

When we think of foods we want to eat during the summer it’s generally about cool and refreshing treats. We may start off wanting to fill up with something healthy, but dessert is always in the back of my mind and always top of mind for our kids. 

It can be anything from Strawberry PopsiclesStrawberry Yogurt Ice PopsRainbow Nice CreamGraham Cracker Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches, and basically anything cold and sweet from the freezer. Nothing is better than a big bunch of these Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches. They’re delectable and feel extra special when you’re feeding a crowd. 

You can use any kind of cookies you want to make these, but our favorites are Double Chocolate Hemp Heart CookiesVegan Cowgirl Cookies, or classic chocolate chip cookies. If you’re short on time, you can even buy pre-baked cookies or dough and bake them up quickly. We promise that no one will pass on these beauties. 

The real fun trick of this recipe is to make the ice cream into the same shape as the cookies. It’s a game-changer to fast and gorgeous ice cream cookie sandwiches.

Make sure to use an ice cream scoop when you measure out your big cookies so they are a similar size. We usually buy pints of ice cream, but you can also buy slightly larger containers if you want them to be giant. Just slice the wheels, slide out the ice cream or peel of the paper, and voila! You have beautiful ice cream cookie sandwiches everyone will swoon after.
