Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

For the Fourth of July, my family has always shared Red, White and Blue Tea Cakes with our friends, family and neighbors. This is a tradition I have continued into adulthood, and whenever Independence Day rolls around, y’all can pretty much bet on findind me in the kitchen baking and attempting to rope friends into assisting. … I’m looking at you, Heather and Jason, for being the best sports about this and actually assisting in the production of these cookies years ago.

This recipe stems from the eight cookies that were leftover from the Fourth. An atrocity, I know, and I decided I was going to put them to good use by making homemade ice cream sandwiches.

Also, if you look really close at the bottom cookie in the following images of the sandwich being made, you’ll see some of my electric blue icing that accidentally was sprinkled on the cookie. Oops?

    Take a scoop of the ice cream of your choosing. I’m a huge fan of Mint Chocolate Chip and not-so-guiltily purchased the sweet dessert from the local creamery last week… so this was what I used. Plop that scoop down onto one of the cookies. Place another cookie on top of the ice cream, pushing the ice cream down so the top sandwich cookie is completely attached to the sandwich. And then transfer that little ice cream sandwich into the freezer to solidify and no longer drip ALL OVER THE PLACE for a second or two.

    Once the ice cream has hardened, bite into your dessert, let the ice cream dribble down your chin just a bit and be so ridiculously happy that you made your own ice cream sandwiches.
