Vanilla Bean Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches with Salted Caramel Ice Cream
Here are the steps:
- Make the vanilla bean snickerdoodles, let cool completely.
- Buy salted caramel ice cream and let get a little soft.
- Use a standard size ice cream scoop to place one scoop on five cookies. Cover with a second cookie and lightly smash together.
- Wrap in wax paper and place in a plastic bag. Freeze.
- Enjoy deliciousness!
After eating the ice cream one day and the cookies on another, inspiration struck! This was a great usage of leftover cookies.
These are amazing! The soft texture and the cinnamon flavor of the cookie pair perfectly with the cold, creamy, sweet ice cream. The salted caramel swirl is divine! One pint of ice cream makes five scoops, enough for five lovely ice cream sandwiches. Ruth and I each had one after our taco salads and the other three were shared on a Sunday evening on the porch. Perfect summer eating!
