Making Ice Cream Sandwiches at Home
Every cookie and ice cream may be used to make ice cream sandwiches. That being said, these It’s It knockoff ice cream sandwiches are a big hit in our Test Kitchen. They are well deserving of their five-star rating and acclaim.
- 1/4 cup of melted butter
- Three-quarters of a cup of brown sugar, measured by weight
- 1-fourteenth of a cup of sugar
- 2 little eggs
- Vanilla extract, half a teaspoon
- 13 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- Just half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- Baking powder, one-fourth teaspoon
- Salt, about a quarter of a teaspoon
- Quick-cooking oats, 1 1/2 cups
- Ice cream, either handmade or store-bought vanilla flavoring measuring 3 cups
- 1 bottle of chocolate hard-shell ice cream topping (about 7-1/4 ounces) (optional)
Step 1: You’ll need to prepare the cookies
This dish is as simple as it gets. As with any standard drop cookie recipe, you should begin by creating the dough. About five minutes should be enough to cream the butter and sugars into a pale and fluffy consistency. Follow that by incorporating the vanilla extract and egg.
Next, add the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt) and stir until just blended. Add oats and other optional ingredients, such as chocolate chips, baking chips, almonds, or raisins.
Put the cookies on a baking sheet using a big cookie scoop and bake at 350 degrees for 11–13 minutes. All the way around, it has to be a toasty brown color. After baking, allow cooling for a few minutes on the pan before transferring it to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Step 2: Spread the ice cream when it has softened
Take some ice cream out of the freezer while the cookies cool. Before putting the cookies together, you should soften the pint a bit. You can use store-bought ice cream if you like, or you can experiment with making your own (or froyo, custard, gelato). The ice cream should be right after sitting out for 10 to 15 minutes on the counter.
Once the ice cream is soft, divide it into two-thirds and spread it over half of the cookies. This task will be simple, using an offset spatula.
Prepare ahead of time if you want to use homemade ice cream. The canister of even the most widely sold ice cream makers must be frozen for at least 12 hours before usage.
Step 3: Sandwich and wait
Spread a thin amount of ice cream on each cookie and place another on top to make a sandwich. Then, place the baking dish with sandwiches in the freezer for at least half an hour. The following step can’t be taken until they are firm.
Step 4: Get to the good parts
Incorporating extras is the best part (well, it’s all the best part of ice cream sandwiches). Toppings are open here, so use anything you like on your ice cream. You may coat the outside with chocolate chips, sprinkles, chopped almonds, or candy. You can even use Magic Shell (or make your own if you want to go all out) to coat the sandwich.
As soon as the last detail is in place, could you relax and enjoy it?
Advice on Creating Delicious Ice Cream Sandwiches at Home
If you make ice cream sandwiches at home, how long do they last?
The sandwiches are ready to consume once the toppings, such as sprinkles and chocolate, have been added. Wrap each sandwich securely in plastic wrap, then place them in a zip-top bag or airtight container to keep for later.
If you put them in the freezer, they will keep for up to three months.
What about other kinds of cookies; are they acceptable?
Yes, most definitely. Just about any baked cookie will do for ice cream sandwiches. The ideal cookies to use are either drop cookies or cookie cutters. You may also use premade cookies from the shop if you’re pressed for time.
Are there any more kinds of ice cream sandwiches?
There are wide delicious varieties to choose from besides the traditional pairing of vanilla ice cream and cookies we like. Several of our top picks are as follows.
- Choco-coconut combines chocolate biscuits, coconut ice cream, and toasted coconut.
- Cookies dipped in dark chocolate, ice cream with mint chips, and Andes mints for crunch: that’s mint chip.
- Mocha is made with chocolate biscuits, coffee ice cream, and candies.
- Sugar cookies, strawberry ice cream, and chocolate chips make up the classic Neopolitan dessert.
- The classic PB cup consists of peanut butter cookies, chocolate ice cream, and crushed peanut butter cups.
- The classic strawberry and cream flavors feature sugar cookies, strawberry ice cream, and freeze-dried strawberries.
There are, of course, many more possible taste combinations. The ingredients for creating new takes on classic frozen desserts are already in your kitchen cabinets.
