Homemade Vanilla Cola Ice Cream Sandwiches

Vanilla Cola Ice Cream Sandwiches

These homemade ice cream sandwiches are the ice cream sandwich version of a soda shop’s vanilla Coke – classic Americana!  A tray of these homemade ice cream sandwiches made using from-scratch cola ice cream and soft, chewy vanilla cookies belongs alongside waving paper flags, sparklers and sprinklers, swimming pools, and red, white, and blue hair bows on July 4th.  Each homemade ice cream sandwich is as refreshing as a  cool drink.  You’ll want to savor it, but don’t be too slow or you’ll end up with melted ice cream and a happy dog.

Tovolo Ice Cream Sandwich Molds, Classic Icons - Set of 3

To make pretty ice cream sandwiches, it helps to have an ice cream sandwich maker.  I used the star one from Tovolo's set.

The ice cream sandwich maker includes a cookie cutter.  The secret to making perfectly-sized ice cream sandwich cookies is to cut the cookies after they bake, while they are still hot.  If you cut them before they bake, the batter will spread during baking and the stars will be different sizes.

By the way, how cute is Tovolo's silicone mat that I baked the cookies on?!

You place a cookie in the bottom of the homemade ice cream sandwich maker, pack in ice cream, place another cookie on top, and then press it all down with the included cookie press.  If you didn’t have a homemade ice cream sandwich maker and tried to tightly pack the ice cream down, it would all come out the sides of the ice cream sandwich.

Homemade Vanilla Cola Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

For the cookies in this recipe, I used soft and chewy sugar-doodle vanilla cookies from Averie Cooks.  I couldn’t resist the name, and I was happy that I chose it.  The cookies were everything the recipe’s title claimed they would be.

Averie based her cookies off of the white chocolate snickerdoodles and saffron-vanilla snickerdoodles in this book.  I may have to grab a copy because those recipes sound incredible!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Roll out the cookie dough to 1/8" thick.
  3. Transfer to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the giant cookie is pale golden and the edges have just set. The cookie will still be really soft.
  5. Remove from the oven and set on the counter for 3 minutes.
  6. Take cola ice cream out of the freezer to warm up slightly. You'll want it soft but not soupy.
  7. Use the cookie cutter portion of the ice cream sandwich maker to to cut out star cookies.
  8. Place the cut-out cookies on a cooling rack to finish cooling. Eat the scraps.
  9. Place a cooled cookie in the bottom of the ice cream sandwich maker, top with a scoop of ice cream and another cookie, and use the cookie press to tightly pack the whole thing.
  10. Remove the ice cream sandwich from the mold, tightly wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze until ready to eat.
  11. Repeat for the remaining ice cream sandwiches.
