Ice cream sandwiches have been near the top of my “crave” list recently. Immaculate Baking Co. Supremes Chocolate Chunk Cookies were on sale, so I knew it was time to indulge. Immaculate Baking Co. has become one of our staples for convenience baking items. Their Blueberry Scones are a regular breakfast treat, and we are seriously addicted to Gingerbread Spice Cookies. The Supremes Chocolate Chunk Cookies are quick to bake and impossible to resist, with chunks of milk and semi-sweet chocolate in an all-natural, preservative-free, sugar and butter-rich dough. With the Cream Cheese Ice Cream recipe we used in our Peach Pecan Amaretto Cheesecake Shooters, super-rich ice cream sandwiches are ridiculously easy, but that could be our secret.
Make the ice cream first, and freeze it in a shallow dish until very firm. My dish was 10″ square, which made 9 sandwiches. While the ice cream is in the freezer, bake 2 packages of Supremes Chocolate Chunk Cookies and cool them completely on a wire rack. (You will have leftover cookies, which is never a problem.) When you are ready to assemble the ice cream sandwiches, you will need to work quickly using a biscuit cutter or glass just about the same size as the cookies, and small plastic bags or plastic wrap.
Place 9 cookies upside down on a flat surface. Cut an ice cream circle using the biscuit cutter or glass. Carefully remove the ice cream and place one circle on the first upside down cookie. Immediately top with a second cookie and very gently press together. Wrap the ice cream sandwich and pop it in the freezer. Repeat until all sandwiches have been assembled. You will need a spatula or spoon to rework the ice cream in order to cut the circles. I waited a couple of hours until the ice cream was firmly frozen again, then transferred all the sandwiches to a freezer bag for storage.
Friends, ice cream sandwiches will never show up in a list of healthy foods, but these are healthIER because there are no preservatives or “unnatural” ingredients in the cookies or ice cream. The hands-on preparation time was probably less than an hour, thanks to a head start on the cookies provided by Immaculate Baking Co. Could you make the process even easier with purchased ice cream? You bet, but I promise you’ll be missing out if you don’t try the cream cheese ice cream. These ice cream sandwiches were the best ever.
