Snicker-Doodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I'm sure this is not the best way to start off the New Year...but it certainly is the tastiest! Last week Dan and I hosted a family dinner and I wanted something really simple for dessert. I decided to go with homemade ice cream sandwiches so I could make them in advance and serve them up quick. My favorite sweet combination is cinnamon and sugar...So I decided to take that and run with it! Here is what I came up with and they were a hit!


What You Need
Cookies - Vanilla Ice Cream - Cinnamon & Sugar
Snicker-Doodle Ingredients
`3 1/2 cup sifted flour
`1 tbs baking powder
`2 tsp baking soda
`pinch of salt
`1/2 tsp cinnamon
`2 cups sugar
`2 sticks of butter (room temp)
`2 tsp vanilla
`2 eggs (room temp)
`1 tbs corn syrup (keeps the cookies chewy)


What You Do
First bake the cookies.
-Pre-heat oven to 325
-Mix the dry ingredients
-Next cream the butter and sugar until creamy.
-Now add the egg, vanilla and cinnamon.
-Once the wet ingredients are well mixed...slowly add your dry ingredients.
-You should now have a cookie dough. Scrap the sides of the bowl and chill in the fridge until firm.
-After the dough has chilled, roll out cookie dough balls (about 2 tbs in each ball). Roll the cookie dough balls in cinnamon and sugar. (For this mixture; in a bowl mix 1 cup of sugar with about 4 tbs cinnamon)
-On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place the cinnamon and sugar coated cookie dough balls.
-Bake the cookies until they are thin and golden brown. Take them out when the edges are light brown and the centers are soft.
-Let the cookies completely cool before assembling the sandwiches.

Assemble the sandwiches.
-Let the ice cream sit out and soften for at least 5-10 minutes.
-Use an ice cream scoop and scoop ice cream onto each cookie.
-Using another cookie, top and press down to make a sandwich.
-Now roll the sandwich edges in cinnamon and sugar.
-Wrap in parchment paper and store in the freezer. I usually like to keep the in the freezer for about an hour after making them, before serving.
-This recipe makes at least 12 ice cream sandwiches.

These babies are pretty rad and taste seriously awesome! If you love cinnamon and sugar. I love the texture between the crunchy, chewy cookie and soft ice cream. I swear rolling the edges in a cinnamon sugar mixture makes the whole thing melt in your mouth! Ok, seriously who doesn't love an ice cream sandwich?!
These are perfect for entertaining because you can make a bunch at once and store them. Just wrap them in parchment paper and tie with string. They keep in the freezer for up to a week.

Enjoy friends!
