Frosted Sugar Cookie Sandwich

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Make cookies as directed on the pouch, using butter and egg, but make sure to place dough in rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until the edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute before removing from the cookie sheet, then cool completely (about 30 minutes). 
  4. For each ice cream sandwich, place 1 scoop of ice cream (about ⅓ cup) between 2 cookies.
  5. Gently press cookies together (ice cream should spread to the edge of cookies), then roll ice cream edges in sprinkles.
  6. Eat immediately, OR to save for later, wrap sandwiches individually in plastic wrap. Place in a resealable freezer bag and freeze until needed. 


Brownie Sundae

  2. Place a brownie on each plate, top with a scoop of ice cream, and serve with warm chocolate sauce.

Pro-tip: To mix it up, stir the warm chocolate sauce with the ice cream in a cup, then add crumbled brownie pieces and whipped cream on top.
