Make your own!!!

In college, there was a really outrageously expensive ice cream place that would make your ice cream sandwich to order. You selected what kind of cookie (they used two) you wanted it on and what kind of ice cream you wanted in the middle. Couldn't afford to do it too often, but they were divine!!!

I was planning to (but haven't yet) make some brownies where I used a 9x13 pan so they would be really thin and then use them for the cookie part of an ice cream sandwich. Let the ice cream soften a bit so it's easier to "spread". Roll the outside in mini choc chips because you might as well go all the way and do it right. Then wrap them individually in wax paper and stick in the freezer.

In the first option, the cookies aren't frozen. In the second, they would be. Has anybody tried something like this?? Where you would end up trying to eat (thin brownies) out of the freezer?? Will I crack a tooth?? :lol: (<---toothless grin)

And, heck, if you don't bake just go buy two nice-sized (usually individually wrapped) gluten free cookies and put a nice slab of ice cream between them. Yum!

Make a batch of your favorite cookies. Put slightly softened ice cream between 2. Wrap and freeze them. Or make them one at a time and keep your cookies wrapped by the 2's in the freezer for those craving moments. Works great with a jet puff marshmallow. I melt a puff in the microwave until it puffs up, then sandwich between 2 cookies... :lol: I never did like smores but these are amazing with chocolate cookies.

Oh would you people just SHUT UP already with the freakin cookie ice cream brownie CRAP!!!!

God, I'm hungry.

Speaking of which, here's a link to a lovely cakey brownie that comes out very soft and would make a very nice cookie for sandwiches if baked very thin. Guess what I'll be doing once the temperature in my 3rd floor apartment gets below 100 degrees?

OK, confession time. I have been too impatient to wait for a brownie to defrost and ate them right out of the freezer...wow, that felt good.

I didn't break my teeth although that probably wouldn't have stopped me from trying tit again!!

OK, ice cream sandwiches are good, but warm brownies from the oven with vanilla ice cream are even better! Or warm chocolate chip cookies with ice cream...oh, and let's drizzle hot fudge on top too!

Now that we've all caused each other to gain 20 pounds just reading, let's all head to the kitchen and gain 40 actually eating this stuff!!

If you live somewhere near a Whole Foods, Glutenfreeda's/Julie's Organic's gluten-free ice cream sandwiches are simply awesome. They were exclusive to Whole Foods through 7/31, but presumably you could get your nearest store to order them now (if you're not near a Whole Foods).

Edit: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/products/item.php?RID=401 Glutenfreeda's site doesn't mention them and Julie's Organic's site didn't seem to either, so maybe I spoke too soon about other stores being able to order them. Also, you should be forewarned that they cost a billion dollars. Worth it, though.

Ok, I deleted this message because I was wrong. the bars I was thinking of were chocolate coated bars not sandwiches. :(

The JO-SEF gluten-free chocolate Graham Crackers are as close as it gets until cooler weather for me... My daughter used those Graham Crackers to make an ice cream cake just for me, while the Grand Children and the rest of the family pigged out on a store bought ice cream cake...

For me, life gets a little better everyday without Gluten!...

Annalise Roberts has a excellent ice cream sandwich recipe in her first cookbook. Also I use choc.chip cookies for ice cream sandwiches . You can also do different IC flavors....Ginger cookies are good with pumpkin ice cream. Fall season is ust around the corner!

I believe you can find Annslise's ice cream sandwich recipe on her site as well.

enjoy

We are going tonight for ice cream and groceries. The store is almost an hour away and its supposed to be 100 degrees today. Last time it stayed frozen pretty good. But now the chocolate cookies and brownies I made this week are gone :(

Future reference- Stick a cooler in the car! You can freeze big containers of water for giant ice cubes that keep ice cream nice and cold, can you tell I've had this problem before? If you don't have a cooler, Bring the big ice cubes inside a blanket inside a paper bag, and then wrap it up with the ice cream. works almost as good.
