One of my kids favorite desserts are homemade ice cream sandwiches. They're so easy and oh-so-yummy! But, they're messy. So, I figured out how to wrap them in paper to keep them from getting too messy (not that they won't, but every bit helps).
My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe is the back of the Nestle Toll House bag. You know... Nesalay Tollhousa. (If you loved friends as much as me, you get it)
We're bringing these for a cookout tomorrow so I doubled the recipe to make about 30 sandwiches.
Let your cookies cool completely!
Once they are cool put one scoop in between two cookies. You should let the ice cream soften a bit so it doesn't break your cookies when you push them together.
Now, cut a square from freezer paper or wax paper (I used freezer paper). They don't have to be perfect. Mine were about 8 inches, but no need for measuring.
Fold your square into a triangle. If your corners do not match up, just fold it nicely and don't fret.
Now fold the bottom of your triangle up about an inch.
Put your cookie on top.
Fold the corner up to the middle of the cookie.
Fold your sides in to the center and slip one side into the other.
If you make your squares really big, you could fold the sides first and then the top triangle under and over to help hold it nicely. This seemed to work just fine, though.
We'll see how it goes tomorrow.
Now, off to sew some outfits!
