Here we are- Part Three and the conclusion of the Ice Cream Sandwich Series! Hooray!
I hope you all had a chance to make some delicious ice cream and/or cookies this last two weeks. If not, I hope you at least got to pin these recipes to make on a slow weekend. Did ya?
This post is going to be short and simple. Straight to the point. It’s easy-peasy too! So, let’s get to it!
First off, thanks for hanging in there with me :) I hope I’ve helped you realize that making your own sweets isn’t too hard or too overwhelming. I hope I’ve helped you see that YOU too can make “from scratch” things. I hope I’ve helped you find your inner baker!
If you’re just joining us- the last three weeks we have been making a super simple Ice Cream Sandwich, from scratch. Part 1 we talked about this:
Then on Part 2, we were all about this:
And here we are, the conclusion- putting it all together and creating the perfect Ice Cream Sandwich.
Things seriously couldn’t be easier from here on out- You basically take your cookies…smoosh your ice cream on one, and top (gently pressing) with the other. Simple, right?
If you want to get down to specifics, I let my super frozen ice cream sit out for about 5 minutes before scooping. This made things a lot easier for me.
I also used a 2″ ice cream scoop for my ice cream, flipped one cookie over, placed ice cream on top (the bottom side of cookie), and then gently and evenly pressed the top cookie on…top. I found the 2″ scoop held the perfect amount of ice cream for the size cookies I had made.
But let’s be honest, there’s no rhyme or reason to this. Use a scoop, use a spoon, use a stick, use your hands- just get that ice cream on a cookie and smoosh. That’s a term right?
Just make sure you are either planning on serving your sandwiches right away, or wrapping them in plastic wrap nice and neatly, and placing back in freezer for later serving.
You can also roll the sides of your sandwich in chocolate chips, more toasted coconut, maybe some toasted almonds (whatever really)…or like I chose to do- leave plain.
Thanks for sticking around. Original recipe can be found at Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe: coconut ice cream sandwiches + part 3 of ice cream sandwich week…
***A big thank you and hugs to my friend Christina for taking time to share her recipe and post on the blog over the last three weeks! :) I hope you all enjoyed! Happy baking.
