Ahhhhh….we are finally starting to dry out a little bit here in the rolling hills of Ohio. Today is one of those perfect summer days. The temperature is in the mid 70’s, the sky is blue with billowing white clouds and a warm breeze is blowing through the trees. Absolutely blissful!
What better day than to get out the Berlin Natural Bakery Spelt Cookies, some delicious ice cream and make some homemade ice cream cookie sandwiches. It is so simple and you can use your own favorite flavor and brand of ice cream or frozen yogurt making them extra special and personal for you and your loved ones.
Use any of the Berlin Natural Bakery Spelt Oatmeal Cookies: the Oatmeal Gems, the Chewyful Raisin Oatmeal or the Chocolate Meltdown Oatmeal. Each package will make 3 ice cream sandwiches.
The method is very simple. Place the cookies on a cookie sheet (I like to place a sheet of waxed paper down first) and then scoop some ice cream that you have allowed to slightly soften, onto the bottom of one cookie, top it with another cookie, and then smash them together a little bit. It works really well if the cookies are partly frozen and make sure you don’t allow the ice cream to get too soft or you’ll have a real mess. (I speak from experience)! For something extra special, you could then roll the edges of the ice cream in whatever kind of sprinkles/chocolate chips/nuts you choose.
This would also be something fun to do for the kids at home. They’ll love the idea of eating a delicious creation they made themselves!
Have a wonderful summer and until next time, Happy Baking!
