Funfetti Ice Cream Sandwiches

Whenever I go into an ice cream shop, I always see little kids with ice cream cones covered in sprinkles. There must be something about those colourful little balls of sugar that they just can't resist. But who can blame them? I mean, isn't everything better with a little bit of colour?

Well, these ice cream sandwiches will definitely be popular with sprinkle-loving kids. Sugar cookies are tasty on their own, but with sprinkles baked right inside? Even better.

These ice cream sandwiches will be a hit with everyone, not just kids. I mean, cookies, ice cream AND sprinkles? What's not to love?

Funfetti Ice Cream Sandwiches
Cookies adapted from allrecipes
Makes about 20 cookies, or 10 sandwiches
  • 1 1/4 + 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 small egg, or 1/2 of a large egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • Vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and baking powder.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add in egg and vanilla.

Gradually mix the flour mixture into the egg mixture until combined.

Once dough is mixed, add sprinkles and stir until sprinkles are evenly distributed.

Roll cookies into evenly shaped balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden. Bake the cookies so that they are soft rather than crunchy, because once they've been in the freezer, they will be hard to eat.

Let the cookies cool completely before filling with ice cream.

If you're feeling adventurous, try these with a different kind of ice cream. I think cake batter would be great with the "funfetti" theme. Something bright like strawberry, cotton candy or bubble gum would be fun too!
