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.
So your palate, your preference. Your time, your food – make it happen as you see fit—enjoy!

I’m pretty pumped that I live in Florida so I can totally justify making these right now!
Potentially for breakfast. Because, why not?
Rochelle @ Oh So Sweet Baker says
Summer can’t come any sooner. I need to make this and possibly make that ice cream too sandwich those cookies between.
Lisa @ Simple Pairings says
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.
Chloe Cramer says
I love snickerdoodles but I never thought of making them into ice cream sanwiches. These are amazing!
Brian @ A Thought For Food says
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.

Absolutely gorgeous. And fun! All at the same time, I LOVE that!!
Jenny Flake says
Nomi, I about died when I saw these! Best combination ever!
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!
