Homemade Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

Yesterday on a whim I decided to attempt making homemade ice cream cookie sandwiches to share with friends.  I had already baked the cookies the night before, but with a forecast of 101, I felt like we needed a little cool factor too.  I searched online for directions and the first I found talked about melting the ice cream, mixing in sprinkles, refreezing for 6 hours ... wait - 6 hours?  I had maybe 30 minutes. Scratch that idea. So, here's my quick and easy method ...

Easy Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

Pull out the ice cream and let it sit on the counter a few minutes to begin softening.  Arrange cookie pairs on plate.  Use a knife to thinly slice some ice cream and place it on the bottom of one cookie.  Add as much as desired. :)  Place the second cookie on top.  Press gently to stick it all together.  Wrap each sandwich in wax paper.  Return to freezer to harden.  (Unless you want one immediately - in which case, dig in!)  Then when you are ready to enjoy, you can pull out one sandwich, unwrap and eat.  Enjoy!
