Ice Cream Sandwiches! Dd sees them but has never tasted one. She wouldn't even like them as she really doesn't like chocolate but still...

Last night I had a brainwave. We make a tasty ice cream, her cousins even prefer it to the real thing. Why not sandwich that between graham crackers?

2 graham cracker squares (We use Nabisco's Honey Maid)
1/2 cup softened ice cream

When ice cream is just starting to soften, scoop out enough to cover a graham cracker square about 1/2" (1.5cm) thick. Place a second graham cracker on top to close the sandwich and smooth the edges with the back of your spoon. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least an hour. Unwrap and serve.

That is a great idea! How did DD enjoy her first ice cream sandwich? What a great treat to make ahead and leave in the freezer for (especially) a child avoiding milk and who has less ice cream options.

Here's an idea for easy ice cream sandwiches from Anna Olson Recipes. Basically just use any cookies you've made and do the same thing, her example is chocolate chip but you could pretty much use any variety you love. You've got my brain going now Susan. :lol:

Susan, if DD can eat graham wafers you could use mini foil pie pans and make a graham wafer crumb crust then soften the ice cream, scoop in like a pie, freeze again and you'd have a mini ice cream cake :swing .

Ooh yeah! :thumbsup

She loved the ice cream sandwhich. We had enough ice cream left to make 3 and dh and I gave up ours so she'd have them another time. I caved in and let her have 2 last night. They were pretty small (3"x3"). Next time, I'll get the rectangle crackers and make them full sized.

I'd be afraid of regular cookies being too thick or hard especially when you think of 2 and 1/2" of ice cream inside-that's a mouthful!

We've also made graham cracker crust tarts with custard in them. For some reason, no-cook puddings don't work with soymilk but the cooked varieties do.
