Strawberry Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

strawberry season has come & gone,
around these parts anyway.
they’re still available at markets,
fret not,
but once they’re no longer pick-able for us
the season is done.
what we do is we pick more than we’re able to consume,
freezing the rest
for smoothies
for ice cream
for breakfast
for dessert
this year’s yield ,
while beautiful,
did not taste as they looked.
as a result
this year’s batch of ice cream wasn’t the best.
in lieu of chucking it
i figured sandwiching them would solve mediocrity.
thank goodness i was correct.
*note: any kind of ice cream flavor,
at any level of mediocrity or awesomeness,
will work.

PS. happy independence week! be safe, be good.

strawberry ice cream cookie sandwiches
cookie recipe makes about 30 cookies

4 ounces room temp ghee
4 ounces coconut oil, softened, just on the other side of solid
3/4 cup sugar, scant
3/4 cup light brown sugar, scant
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups ap flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
super intense strawberry ice cream, or whatever flavor you want

in mixing bowl, with paddle attachment, cream butter + coconut oil + sugars. add the eggs, followed by the flour, salt and baking soda. scrape the sides of the bowl, you’re aiming for an incorporated batter.

cover and fridge, for at least an hour, up to over night.

preheat oven to 325, prepare baking sheet with parchment paper.

using a ice cream scooper (ours is just shy of 1 TBL), scoop out the dough onto prepared baking sheet. leave a few inches between cookies as they will spread.

bake for 12-14 minutes, i aimed for 13 minutes.

allow to cool completely on cookie rack, then freeze them.

to assemble, scoop out ice cream and sandwich between two cookies. consume immediately, or stick back in freezer, covered until ready to devour.

if you’re like dw, you could freeze the ice cream in a casserole dish. allow it to thaw a bit, then using a biscuit cutter almost the same size at the cookies cut out the ice cream.
then, if you’re like me, you could use an off-set spatula to smooth out any bumps that the biscuit cutter didn’t smooth out and run it along the edges.

BAM!

  1. I wondered how you got those perfectly cut edges and why in the heck I never thought of that. Are the cookies crisp and snappy after freezing????

    1. you know those gas station ice cream cookie sandwiches, with the mini chocolate chips studded on the sides? the cookie part is like that, soft and and almost cake like. not crisp or snappy, but all sorts of good and bad for your hips.
