Basic Recipe for Ice Cream Sandwiches

Very Easy
Makes 2
  • 4 ct. pkg. Kowalski's Cookies, any flavor

  • 1 pint ice cream, any flavor

  • - sprinkles or other crushed candy, etc., for rolling (optional)


Put cookies in the freezer for 3-4 hrs. to harden. Allow ice cream to soften at room temperature for 3-5 min. Scoop 1/2 of ice cream on top of the bottom of a cookie; sandwich another cookie on top, bottom side to the ice cream. Press cookies together to distribute ice cream; smooth edges with the back of a spoon. Repeat with remaining cookies and ice cream. Roll in or sprinkle candy on exposed ice cream around the edges of the sandwiches. Wrap sandwiches in waxed paper and freeze 4 hrs. or until solid. Let stand at room temperature 5-10 min. before serving.

Variation: For Dipped Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches, melt approx. 4 oz. dark chocolate melting discs in a microwave-safe dish in 30 sec. increments, stirring between heatings until smooth. Dip half of each cookie (top, bottom, and edges) in melted chocolate or lightly and evenly spread melted chocolate on 1/2 of each cookie. Place cookies on waxed paper; allow to harden completely (2-3 hrs.).
