Classic Ice Cream Sandwiches
These easy to make classic ice cream sandwiches are the perfect make ahead gourmet ice cream dessert. The chocolate shortbread softens to just the right texture in the freezer and you can make them totally your own with your favorite ice cream.
- I used chocolate ice cream, but use your favorite!
- When you trim the ice cream , make sure to leave yourself an 8 by 12-inch rectangle.
- While they can be served right away, the texture of the assembled sandwiches is best if allowed to rest in freezer overnight. This will allow the cookie to soften slightly.
- Wrap the assembled sandwiches separately in parchment paper or foil.
