Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches
When I offered to make dinner for my parents for their 47th anniversary this week, my mom requested fish, cookies, and ice cream. And since I was asking D to make the cookies, he suggested putting together the last two requests. D cautiously asked, "Would you be okay if I made ice cream sandwiches for Nonno and Nonna? It won't be fancy, but it will be delicious." I'm all for delicious...no need for fancy. 

Ingredients 
makes approximately 3 dozen cookies or 18 ice cream sandwiches

Snickerdoodles
  • 1 C softened butter
  • 1 C organic granulated sugar + 4 T for rolling
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon + 2 T for rolling
  • 1/4 t ground cardamom
  • 1/4 t ground nutmeg
  • 3 C flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • Also needed: baking sheet, silicone mat or parchment paper, scoop 

Ice Cream Sandwiches
  • ice cream (D used vanilla and espresso chocolate cookies crumble)
  • Also needed: scoop
Procedure

Snickerdoodles
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, blend together 4 T sugar and 2 T ground cinnamon for rolling.

In a small mixing bowl, blend together flour, baking soda, baking powder, 1/2 t ground cinnamon, 1/4 t ground cardamom, and 1/4 t ground nutmeg. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until lightened and fluffy. Beat in egg and pure vanilla.


Gradually blend in the flour mixture until you have a smooth dough. Here you can use a scoop which is much easier...or you can roll walnut-sized balls with your hands.


Place the dough balls in the cinnamon mixture and roll to coat completely.


Place onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven - or until golden. If you prefer more crunchy cookies, bake for a minute or two longer. But the softer cookies were easier to assemble into ice cream sandwiches.


Let cookies cool on sheets for 2 to 3 minutes before removing to cool on wire racks. Once you're ready to assemble...


Ice Cream Sandwiches
Use a scoop to place a small bit of ice cream (he used about 1 T for a 1-1/2" cookie) on the flat side of one cookie. Place the flat side of another cookie on top of the ice cream and gently press them together until the ice cream comes to the edge of the two cookies.


Work quickly and serve immediately!
