Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Spring is a day away, and I’m already onto summer. I can’t wait. With that, I’m once again jumping ahead—this time with a summer treat—Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches.

Yep, I’m ready for it, and totally trying to sell you on it with this treat and Friday’s dessert post that you definitely don’t want to miss.

For this one today, it’s pretty easy. Bake up a batch of your favorite cookies and smoosh your favorite ice cream in the middle. I used a mocha almond crunch for the ice cream filling you see here, which gave the whole ensemble a Mexican coffee flavor–killah! Need to shortcut this recipe further? Use ready-to-bake cookie dough, or just go ahead and use store bought cookies. Who’s judging? Your time is valuable, so spend it as you see fit. I’m not a home-bake glorifier, I’m a foodie who glorifies taste and experience.

    I love snickerdoodles! They are one of my favorite cookies, ever since I was a little girl. There is nothing quite like that cream of tartar tang. I love how you made them into ice cream sandwiches – I imagine it provides such a creamy and refreshing value that pairs beautifully with the traditional snickerdoodle flavor. Absolutely brilliant.

    The only person I think who’d love these more than myself is my husband. Like if I made these for him I think he’d be like a little kid.

    I can just feel the chewy soft texture of those cookies by looking at them and I’m sure they taste just as amazing as I’m imagining right now. What a great recipe to welcome spring and summer!

    I’ve never made snickerdoodles, seems like time to make some now. Summer is ending for us in NZ now, but the hot days will make this perfect! Perhaps with some cookies n creme or caramel ice cream? Strawberry might go well too!

    I’ve made these using “fried ice cream” flavored ice cream (Kroger brand cinnamon flavored ice cream). Perfect with snickerdoodles! My Bible study group raves over them!
