Ingredients for the sandwiches
There are only 2 ingredients in this super simple recipe!
The ingredients you will need to make the ice cream sandwiches consist of:
- Chocolate chip cookies - I used my favorite gluten free chocolate chip cookies from Sweet Lorens, but you can use any gluten free chocolate chip cookie of your choice.
- Ice cream - Use your favorite ice cream flavor. Any will be delicious!
This recipe is super flexible and there are a few ways you can modify this recipe:
- Use any gluten free cookie as long as it will hold up. Avoid using a cookie that will crumble because it needs to be sturdy enough to hold the ice cream.
- Use your favorite ice cream! I personally think that basic ice cream flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry taste the best in a chocolate chip cookie, but feel free to use any flavor.
- Add ice cream toppings. You can roll the sides of the ice cream sandwiches in your favorite toppings such as sprinkles or chocolate chips.
Making these Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwiches is as easy as pie! Honestly, way easier than pie! How to make gluten free ice cream sandwiches:
Step 1: Start with baking your favorite cookie dough to perfection.
Step 2: Chill the cookies.
Step 3: Scoop the ice cream between two cookies to form sandwiches.
There are many brands that make gluten free and dairy free ice cream options such as Ben and Jerries, So Delicious, and Oatly.
Ice cream sandwiches are exactly what they sound like, ice cream sandwiched between two cookies!
You can store them in a sealed container in the freezer for up to two months, but you'll probably finish them before!
Making these ice cream sandwiches is super simple. here are a few tips to make sure they come out great every time!
- Use a sturdy cookie! This is very important because the cookie will hold the whole sandwich together. If the cookie is too crumbly, the sandwich may fall apart.
- Don't underbake the cookies. Sometimes, slightly underbaking cookies is okay to achieve the gooey texture, but again, the cookie needs to be able to hold the ice cream.
- Be creative with your ice cream sandwiches. Add sprinkles, crunchies, or any ice cream topping to the sides of the ice cream.
