How To Make Ice Cream Sandwiches

What better snack is there than homemade ice cream cookie sandwiches? Learn to cook with Chef Susie as she shows step-by-step instructions from making the filling to your ice cream sandwiches, to the cookie holding this delicious dessert together. We will start first by making the cookie for the outer layer of the sandwich.  First, mix together the butter and sugar in the mixer. Next, you will slowly incorporate the egg, milk, and vanilla mix. Once you have the cookie dough well mixed, scoop onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.  Make sure to give enough room on the cookie sheet so cookies do not get combined. Once you let the cookies cool for a couple of minutes put a big scoop of homemade ice cream on a cookie and then place another cookie on top. Roll the outer sides of your sandwich in sprinkles to add a touch of color. This is a recipe the whole family can enjoy together!
