We thought it’d be fun to combine two of our recipes to create a really yummy treat to be enjoyed by all ages – Ice Cream Sandwiches!!
I made a single batch of our Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, found on page 85 of Eating Pure in a Processed Foods World®. I placed extra-large scoops of dough on the parchment lined baking sheet. Then I gently pressed them flat so they were approximately 3” round and 1/4 to 1/2″ thick. I baked them according to the directions. They made 20 large cookies which I placed in the freezer after they had cooled.
The next day, I made our Ice Cream recipe on page 37 of Eating Pure in a Processed Foods World®. Growing up I remember taking turns with my siblings cranking our ice cream maker! Every ounce of energy was so worth the tasty fresh ice cream! Now I save my arms and use the Ice Cream Maker Attachment for my Kitchen Aid Mixer. The day I made my ice cream, it turned out a little on the soft side. I placed the whole container of homemade ice cream into my freezer for about 30 minutes so it could firm up a little more.
Then the fun began! I precut 10 square pieces of clear plastic wrap and ribbon. Everything was lined up ready to go before I took the cookies and ice cream out of the freezer. Working quickly I placed a generous scoop of ice cream on one cookie, using the back of the spoon to form a 1/2 to 3/4″ layer of ice cream. I then placed another cookie on top and wrapped it in plastic wrap. I placed the finished beauty into the freezer and continued the process. Upon completion, I had 10 scrumptious ice cream sandwiches just waiting to be devoured!
If time does not allow to make homemade ice cream, read labels and buy the cleanest ice cream available with the least amount of ingredients.
