i was visiting a friend in texas a couple of weeks ago to go and get pancake, and we went to the grocery store to buy a bunch of junk to stuff our faces with. these scooby doo sugar cookies was one of the things that i got and i’m so in love with them! i just had to make something with these cookies and i thought a fun ice cream sandwich would be perfect! these guys are filled with a simple cinnamon ice cream that’s not too sweet and not too spicy.
i found it a bit difficult to find these cookies when i got back to nashville and couldn’t find them at either walmart or target. but i did find it at kroger! so if you have a kroger in your town, then that is the most likely place you will be able to find these cookies. otherwise any other kind of sugar cookie works too!
when i thought of what kind of ice cream would fit perfectly with these cookies, i thought of cinnamon. cinnamon ice cream was the perfect choice for this sandwich, and it isn’t intense or overly sweet either.
scooby doo ice cream sandwiches
scooby sugar cookies
1 1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp vanilla extract
place all of the ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil, whisking to make sure the sugar dissolves. place the ice cream base into the fridge overnight to cool and to let the flavor increase. following the manufacturer’s instructions of your ice cream machine, turn the base for 20-25 minutes. place the ice cream into a freezer safe container and freeze overnight to firm up.
take a small ice cream scoop and take a little bit of the cinnamon ice cream and place onto one of the cookies. take another cookie and carefully sandwich them together. roll the sides of the ice cream sandwich in sprinkles. freeze until ready to serve.
