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.
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.
