Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches

Please join me for treats inside today!  I was afraid that my ice cream sandwiches would melt if we went outside in our 90 degree day.


Caiden, who is going into 9th grade still wants to join in a Nana's Cooking Camp this summer, along with Cissy.  Didn't their cookies turn out so beautifully?


I think they like them, don't you?  I have to tell you that these are so delicious!!  This Nana likes them, too.

Harper didn't want to help with the baking, as she was too busy playing, but she did roll her ice cream sandwich in the sprinkles, and enjoyed eating it. 




Yield: About 15 sandwiches

Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches

These are so good, and could be used with other flavors of cake mix, and ice creams. Since cake mixes are no longer 18.50 ounces, I buy an additional box to keep on hand to add to recipes. I have a scale and the kids get to weigh out the additional mix. 

ingredients:

  • 1 (15.25 ) box of red velvet cake mix + 3.25 ounces of additional cake mix  (I actually used white cake mix  to add, but chocolate would be good)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • Ice cream of your choosing
  • Sprinkles of your choosing

instructions:

How to cook Patriotic Ice CreamSandwiches

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine cake mix, eggs, water, and shortening.  Mix with a mixer until well blended.
  3. Using a small scoop, scoop the dough, and shape with hands into a ball, trying to get uniform sizes.
  4. Place on parchment paper and bake for 8-10 minutes.  Cookies will flatten out as they bake and have a crackly appearance. 
  5. Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes, and then remove the cookies to a cooling rack, and allow to cool thoroughly before filling with ice cream.
  6. Take scoops of ice cream and place on one cookie.  Place a second cookie on top, and try to squeeze together.
  7. Roll the edges of the ice cream into a bowl or plate of sprinkles.
  8. Wrap individually in wax paper or plastic wrap.  Store in a container, and freeze.

  6. Good morning Kitty! It's nice to see all the happy faces! Your cookies are so pretty and I bet they are yummy. I made similar cookies for my family a few years ago. The little ones loved them. Mine were chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream in between them. Not as pretty as yours but everyone enjoyed them. A nice treat on a hot day, and are we not all kids at heart some of the time? Have a beautiful day. Hugs...Sandi
