Ice-Cream Sandwiches

All over the world people seem to be going mad for ice-cream sandwiches. When ice-cream alone isn’t enough, stick it between two cookies and you have a delicious ‘Sammie’ as the Australians know them. Flavours seem to be getting more outrageous and stacks keep getting bigger, it seems we can’t get enough of this latest trend. There are even ice-cream sandwich pops, donut ice-cream sandwiches and churro ice-cream sandwiches! We had some left over No Churn Ice-cream in the freezer at Bakes HQ so just had to make our own cookies to sandwich together. The concept is simple, scoop some ice-cream and sandwich it together between two cookies! So why not have a go? Either buy your favourite ice-cream and biscuits or follow our basic recipe to make your own and get creative. DSC_0373 DSC_0380 Ingredients (makes 18 cookies) 125g butter, softened 100g light soft brown sugar 125g caster sugar 225g self raising flour 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla 1 tsp yellow colouring 1 tsp red colouring 1 tsp blue colouring 1 tub of ice-cream or make your own No-Churn   Method Make the cookies by pre-heating the oven to 180C and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper. Cream together the butter and sugars before adding the flour, egg and vanilla. Mix well and then separate into three bowls. Add a colour to each bowl and mix until combined. Split each batch of coloured dough into 6 balls and place these onto the baking tray, pressing down slightly. Cook for 10-12 minutes before removing and leaving to cool and firm up. To assemble the sandwiches, place a scoop of ice-cream between two cookies and then another scoop on top of this finishing with a final cookie.

Then finish off your stacks with a drizzle of salted caramel! Share your creations with us on Instagram using @bakesbox or #bakesbox, we'll share as many as we can!
