Make Your Own Ice Cream Sandwiches

So today's post is going to be nice and quick. My mom absolutely loves ice cream sandwiches and came up with a really simple way to make your own with just a few easy steps. All you need are some large, round, flat cookies from a box that don't have any chocolate chips inside or chocolate drizzle on top. We used Dare's Simple Pleasures almond cookies because they are the perfect shape and because the light almond flavour in the cookies really compliments the chocolate ice cream we used for the filling.
Once you have your cookies, put your ice cream into a piping bag with a rosette tip. For the ice cream you can use store bought ice cream or home made ice cream (I used the chocolate ice cream I made last week). Then slowly pipe the ice cream onto the bottom of one cookie, then squish the other cookie on top with the design facing the outside. Then place the cookies into the freezer to harden and enjoy later. As you can see above, you really want to put the sandwiches into the freezer as quickly as possible or else the ice cream will begin to melt. These ones ended up melting a little too much because I spent so much time taking pictures. : )
These ice cream sandwiches really do taste like authentic ice cream sandwiches from DQ or the freezer aisle of the store, but the beauty of this idea is that you can use what ever kind of cookie you like and whatever flavour of ice cream you enjoy the most.
