Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwiches

peppermint ice cream sandwiches During the holiday season, I like to have some things on hand for unexpected guests, or days when I do not have time to make a dessert. These Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwiches are perfect for adults and children alike. I bake off some Pillsbury Peppermint Sugar Cookies, and sandwich them around a scoop of ice cream, and adorn them with festive sprinkles and crushed peppermint candies. Wrap well, and store in your freezer until you need them. You can use whatever flavor combinations you like, but chocolate ice cream, peppermint cookies, and red sanding sugar are a hit in my house.

    I can’t get the pre-made sugar cookie dough where I live, but I have been known to make a double or triple batch when I do make sugar cookies and roll the used portion up like sausage in cling film. It freezes beautifully and is ready to slice and bake after about 5 minutes out of the freezer. (I do this with chocolate chip cookie dough too, but, interestingly, if labeled properly, it seems to disappear from the freezer before I can bake it.) I love the idea of peppermint ice cream sandwiches! I love peppermint ice cream year-round.

      My Grandmother and aunt do the exact same thing. They call them “icebox cookies,” apparently my great grandmother did the same.

    Hi Bree!

    I hadn’t realized that you had your own personal blog in addition to this one – lovely! Just downloaded your blogging ebook as I am new to the food blog scene (writing, not reading). While a lot of it doesn’t apply to my needs, I appreciated the time you took in putting something like that together. Well done.

    I’m a long time reader of Baked Bree. Just wanted to say that I love your site, your recipes and your adorable little family. (Sorry if this sounds creepy – I just feel that if you enjoy someone and/or their content that you should take a moment to let them know!)

    Thanks,
    S

      I do have a sadly neglected personal blog…. I am glad that you found the ebook helpful, and thank you so much for the sweet words. Not creepy at all!

      thank you so much Alison!

    I’ve done the same thing, but with brownies that have somehow lasted long enough to start staling. Great idea!

      A brownie ice cream sandwich sounds amazing. I might need to try that soon.
