Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

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!
