Nearly two years ago, when I turned 25 and Jeff turned 27, we had a beach party. Jeff got an ice cream sandwich pan and a box of mix to make ice cream sandwiches. I can’t remember who gave it to him (maybe because it was nearly 2 years ago?!) but after sitting in our house, collecting dust and whatever herbs I drop near the drawers that hold our pans, I decided it was time to make ice cream sandwiches. For a crowd, of course, as we won’t eat them all, so Easter seemed perfect!
Here is the evidence that we received this nearly two years ago. I don’t know what’s going on with me, but I think that whenever I receive something I am REALLY interested in, I end up making this face, trying to figure it out. It’s my happy face…I guess?
This mix had been taking up precious room in our cabinets, taunting me on a daily basis to be made. We regularly go to CoolHaus and Diddy Reise, and because of this I am often left wanting an ice cream sandwich on any given day of the week. What’s worse, all along I’ve had all the tools to do just that! Madness, I tell you! The cookies had to be made.
And here is the pan. Now that I’ve finally used it, I can say that I am going to be using it again and again and again. It makes such pretty cookies, and they are the perfect size, too!
So here’s what you do: make the cookies, then let them cool. Get your fave ice cream, and shove it in-between two cookies. Add sprinkles, and chocolate sauce. Serve to your friends, who will undoubtedly tell you these are delicious and promptly have two.
The only problem with the fact that I made this is that now I have cookies leftover, and no one around to eat them….who’s hungry?
What’s your ideal ice cream sandwich?
