Christmas Ice Cream Sandwiches

I got Christmas ice cream sandwich molds from Williams Sonoma a year or two ago and they are so fun to use! I'm not sure if they still sell them but I think it would be easy enough to make these sandwiches without the molds. The best part is that you can choose whatever you want for the cookie part and for the ice cream part, so the combinations are endless. My favorites are brownie cookie with peppermint ice cream (as shown below), chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream, and sugar cookies with peanut butter cup ice cream.
Christmas Ice Cream Sandwiches

Step 1- FOR BROWNIES: make your favorite brownie mix. line an 11x17 inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper. pour dough onto parchment. cook dough until toothpick comes out clean. let cool completely.

*FOR COOKIES: make your favorite cookie dough and cut out into desired shapes and bake.

Step 2- invert the brownies onto a work surface and peel off the parchment, keeping the bottom of the brownies facing up.

Step 3- use a cookie cutter to cut out an even amount of shapes. put a scoop of ice cream in between 2 cutouts to form a sandwich. serve ice cream sandwiches immediately, or place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper and cover tightly with plastic wrap. can be frozen for up to 3 days.
