EASY Ice Cream Sandwich
In honor of National Ice cream Sandwich Day I found a super easy Ice Cream Sandwiches from Twig & Thistle!! So beautiful & retro...and people would think that you spend ours in the kitchen. Here is the recipe:
What you’ll need:
Carton of ice cream
Butter waffle cookies from Trader Joe’s
Round cookie cutter bent into an oval
Take your ice cream (the boxed kind works best) and cut off a 3/4″ thick slab, it doesn’t have to be exact just thinner than your cookie cutter. Next, use your cookie cutter and cut out ovals from the ice cream, set the ovals on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and put the sheet in the freezer to firm up.
While you wait, cut out 9.5″x2.5″ strips of parchment paper to use as holders for the finished product.
Once the ice cream has chilled for a bit, transfer to the cookies with a spatula. For a little extra sweetness, add decorative chocolate sprinkles; simply roll the edges through the sprinkles for an even coating.
For the final touch, wrap in parchment paper and secure with waxed thread or baker’s twine then freeze until ready to serve. Enjoy!
