What else can you make with the delicious vanilla ice cream I showed you yesterday? These Ice Cream Sandwiches!
When I first made the vanilla ice cream (you can see it here!) I immediately thought of making ice cream sandwiches with it. The ice cream is just so amazingly creamy and smooth, I knew it would go perfectly in between 2 chewy and crumbly cookies.
With the ice cream being so flavorful I had to pick the perfect type of cookie. No ordinary cookie would work. I debated chocolate chip, oatmeal, snickerdoodle, and more – but none of these felt right. Then I remembered a shortbread cookie that I discovered about 3 years ago. I remember it being super soft and chewy which is exactly what I wanted. I dug through my recipes and found it at the very back. And wow… they’re even better than I remembered!
These shortbread cookies are very soft in texture. And then at first bite they crumble and melt in your mouth. They taste like butter and vanilla! Now what’s better than that?!
What makes these cookies even tastier is sticking vanilla ice cream in between them. When these 2 components are combined they shine and work perfectly together!
Enjoy the last post from this fun and joyous ice cream month :)!
