Is there any better treat perfect for a summer picnic or backyard barbeque than homemade ice cream sandwiches? They are a big hit and simple to make. You can make several ahead and freeze them for anytime you want a special, tasty treat.
Instead of the traditional chocolate chip cookies with vanilla, be adventurous and try peanut butter cookies with strawberry banana frozen yogurt. Or Mint ice cream sandwiched between chocolate wafers or chocolate chunk cookies. I don’t think there is a bad combination when it comes to ice cream or frozen yogurt and cookies.
Two hints: 1. Make sure the cookies will hold up well when frozen. And, 2. soften the ice cream or frozen yogurt a bit before placing a scoop on one cookie and pressing a second one to close it. 3. You can roll the sandwich in crushed nuts, coconut, mini chocolate chips or toffee bits and then place on a cookie sheet in the freezer until firm.
