How to Make Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies with Video
I don’t know about you but I love making cookies. The things you can do with sugar, butter, and eggs always seem to amaze me. When I make cookies I’m in my happy place but I don’t always have a lot of time to spend coloring icing and cleaning up the creative mess that comes with making great cookies. That’s why I like to make these simple ice cream sandwich cookies. You don’t have to touch one bottle of food coloring gel. Just make a batch of chocolate roll-out cookies and use some white royal icing to sandwich two rectangle shaped cookies together. It seriously doesn’t get much easier than this!
These ice cream sandwich cookies are great cookies for BBQs or outdoor events because they won’t melt like real ice cream sandwiches. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good ice cream sandwich but the cookie version is just as good in my book. If you want to add a little color to them, you can add different colored sprinkles to the sides while the royal icing is wet. They’d be great with red and blue sprinkles for your July 4th celebration. Yeah, I know I’m a little late for that but, there is always next year.
