Funfetti Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

As of yesterday, I’m officially a high school graduate.

Ever since I was a youngin’ I’ve learned it’s mandatory to celebrate milestones with dessert.

Particularly creamy, cold vanilla bean ice cream smothered between two warm, fresh from the oven cookies all with the colorful, crunchy, and fun addition of sprinkles for this one.

These cookies are soft and fluffy yet chewy and hearty enough to hold the ice cream. Hits the spot on a warm summer day. Or any day here in sunny Florida.

Funfetti Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches:
Ingredients: (makes 16 cookies- 8 sandwiches)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick butter (1/2 cup), softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Two 1.75oz bottles of rainbow sprinkles
Vanilla ice cream, for serving
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together the first 3 ingredients in a small bowl, set aside. Cream the butter and sugar until smooth. Then add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Beat in the dry ingredients a little at a time until it forms into a stiff cookie dough mixture. Pour in 3/4 of the bottle of sprinkles and work it into the dough with your hands until the dough is very colorful. Spoon the mixture with a small ice cream scooper (about a tablespoon) onto a lightly greased baking sheet lined with tin foil. Roll the dough into balls and flatten slightly with your palm. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Let the ice cream soften slightly. In a bowl, stir in the desired about of sprinkles then set in the fridge to harden again. Spread in between two cookies and enjoy!

Pictures from graduation day:

Notes to self:
- Always wear shorts under this little black dress.
- I found out my hat was too big after we got there. So my hat was falling down the entire time and I had to hold it. But at least I got to walk to stage with it carefully balanced on my head.
- My speech teacher, and all my other senior teachers, are seriously THE BEST.
- At the time, I was impatiently waiting for this “stupid thing” to be over with, but as a look back, it was one of the most satisfying moments of my life. Embrace moments like these.

After graduation (which was awesome) my family and I went out to eat to the restaurant I work at. I finally got to try their famous garlic rolls smothered in parmesan and good olive oil (which I’ve seen being made fresh multiple times!!!) and THE best cannoilis ever. For real, I’m not even being biased.

And yeah, I’m short.

    • Thanks! I haven’t tried freezing them but you could probably just wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or in an airtight plastic bag. You can also freeze the cookie dough if you’d like.
