I’m not a huge cookie fan, and I’m not a huge ice cream fan either.
However, there is something about ice cream cookie sandwich that gets my attention.
I wasn’t 100% sure, but my husband said his grandma K’s molasses cookies would be perfect for ice cream sandwiches.
So I went along.
I love molasses!
Grandma K’s molasses cookie recipe is so easy to follow.
Once you melt V-butter (original recipe calls for shortening) in a pan, you just add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
Roll it into small balls and coat each ball with sugar.
Usually I’m pretty relaxed when it comes to cooking and baking, and I accept and even appreciate irregularity.
But this time I weighed each ball to make sure they maintain the same size, mostly because they were made to be turned into ice cream sandwiches.
Last time I made these cookies, I skipped this process, but this time I decided to flatten the cookies.
It was so worth, mostly because this brought a huge smile to my husband.
He said now they were exactly like his grandma’s.
(I thought that’s what he said last time too. (lol))
I could have taken a little break here, but I kept going because I already had ice cream to go with my cookies.
My vegan Instagram “friend” said it was the best vegan vanilla ice cream, so I had to try it.
This is the Whole Foods brand.
You can definitely see vanilla beans, which is pretty cool.
She was right.
The ice cream was delicious.
And the ice cream sandwiches turned out awesome!
The cookies are on the soft/chewy side, which makes the perfect cookies for ice cream sandwiches, because they do not become rock hard when frozen.
