Ice cream sandwiches cool, quick, easy

Yes, itís easy. Not quite brainless, as someone remarked, but a simple enough way to put together a summer dessert thatís cool, looks homemade and tastes great.

To make it even simpler, Iíve suggested some flavors that work well together if youíre looking for something more exotic than vanilla ice cream and chocolate chip cookies.

Sort-of-Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

Prepare your favorite homemade cookie recipe (or use prepared cookie dough). Cookies should be at least 3 inches wide when baked.

Top one cookie with a scoop of slightly softened ice cream. Top with another cookie. Repeat for as many sandwiches as needed.

Place in the freezer for 15 to 30 minutes so the ice cream can harden. Serve.

Dream duos:
