Charlie’s birthday is tomorrow and I just finished making one of his FAVORITE desserts- Sprinkle Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches! Truth be told, my entire family has some major sweet tooths! From brownies and cakes to cookies and pastries, we have yet to meet a dessert we didn’t like. Is anyone else’s family the same?? But when it comes to summer, there is pretty much only one dessert that we end up eating — ice cream of course! There’s seriously nothing quite as satisfying and delicious as some ice cream outside on a summer night, right?? Our absolute family favorite is a fresh ice cream sandwich! Specifically, my Sprinkle Sugar Cookie Sandwich with Dreyer’s Slow Churned Classic Vanilla Ice Cream. Let me tell you, it is pure heaven! The cookies can be made ahead in minutes, so you only have to scoop some Dreyer’s ice cream, and you’re ready to serve! How amazing is that after a long summer day? This ice cream sandwich recipe is honestly a perfect quick dessert for the kids or a delicious treat for you! :)
Best Ice Cream
If you’re anything like me, you probably keep a few desserts around the house in case of emergency! Hey, you never know when you’re going to need something sweet right? For me, I always keep all the ingredients to whip up a few batches of cookies in the pantry and at least a pint of ice cream in the freezer. (It’s honestly more like a gallon, but who’s counting right? ;)) For years now, my staple ice cream has been vanilla. It was my total favorite as a kid, but lately it’s been the only ice cream I really want to eat. There is just something so amazing about a really classic vanilla ice cream! And Dreyer’s Slow Churned Vanilla Ice Cream is about as classic as it gets! They have totally hit the perfect balance of vanilla and sweetness that makes for a super indulgent ice cream. It’s been a staple in my freezer for so long now. The Dreyer’s Slow Churned Vanilla is my favorite kind of ice cream to use for these ice cream sandwiches, you can scoop as little or as much as you like to fill the sugar cookie sandwich. Spoiler alert: you will definitely have the urge to scoop tons. ;)
Sprinkle Sugar Cookies
I think by now you guys know how much I completely love sugar cookies! They are hands down my most baked cookie because they are just so darn easy to make! Plus I spent literal years trying to perfect my sugar cookie recipe, so I’m pretty committed to a good sugar cookie! The best thing about sugar cookies (besides they’re amazing flavor) is how versatile they can be. Sugar cookies are perfect just as they are, decorated for an event, or used as the delicious outsides of an ice cream sandwich. ;) Seriously the slight chewiness of a good sugar cookie with its signature sweetness is perfect to build an ice cream sandwich! For this recipe, we added just a little extra touch. ;) By gently folding in sprinkles right to the dough, your cookies will be a little sweeter and a lot more fun! ;) What’s not to love about that? If you’re in a time crunch and do not have time to make my sugar cookie recipe, you can always go to the store and grab baked cookies and add Dreyer’s Slow Churned Vanilla ice Cream to your cookies.
