For the Ice Cream Sandwiches:

  • 1 batch of your favorite homemade cookies (chocolate chip, sugar, snickerdoodle, etc.), baked and cooled
  • 1 quart (4 cups) of your favorite ice cream (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, etc.), slightly softened
  • Optional additions: Mini chocolate chips, crushed nuts, sprinkles, or caramel sauce for rolling the edges of the sandwiches


Step 1: Bake the Cookies

  1. Start by baking a batch of your favorite homemade cookies. You can use classic chocolate chip, sugar, snickerdoodle, or any other cookie you love.
  2. Allow the cookies to cool completely before assembling the ice cream sandwiches. This step can be done well in advance.

Step 2: Soften the Ice Cream

  1. Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes, or until it’s slightly softened. It should be easy to scoop but not melted.

Step 3: Assemble the Ice Cream Sandwiches

  1. Match up pairs of cookies that are similar in size and shape.
  2. Scoop a generous portion of slightly softened ice cream onto the flat side of one cookie.
  3. Place a second cookie, flat side down, on top of the ice cream.
  4. Gently press the two cookies together to spread the ice cream to the edges.
  5. Optionally, roll the exposed edges of the ice cream in mini chocolate chips, crushed nuts, sprinkles, or drizzle with caramel sauce for added flavor and texture.

Step 4: Freeze the Sandwiches

  1. Place the assembled ice cream sandwiches on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Put the baking sheet in the freezer and let the sandwiches freeze for at least 2-3 hours or until they are firm.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy

  1. Once the ice cream sandwiches are completely frozen, remove them from the freezer.
  2. Serve and enjoy your homemade ice cream sandwiches immediately.


Homemade ice cream sandwiches are a delightful treat that can be customized to your liking. Whether you prefer classic chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream or want to experiment with unique combinations, these frozen delights are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth on a hot day or any day when you’re craving a cool, creamy treat.
