I think the person who invented ice cream sandwiches is a genius.  Seriously, ice cream between cookies it is a sweet tooth's heaven.

Although the origins of the ice cream sandwich are iffy, they are still delicious.

According to Wikipedia:

The current version was invented in 1945 by Jerry Newberg when he was selling ice cream at Forbes Field.

When it comes to ice cream sandwiches, you have several to choose from.  You have the regular ice cream sandwiches, Neapolitan ice cream sandwiches, the giant chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches, the kinds are endless.

My favorite ice cream sandwiches are the Skinny Cow Mint  Ice Cream Sandwich.  Not only are they delicious and won't expand the waist line.

I also found a recipe for a scrumptious ice cream sandwich that I will definitely be trying out.


1 cup of crunchy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 egg
tsp. vanilla extract
strawberry ice cream
strawberry jam or jelly
peanut butter chips


Preheat oven at 350 degrees
Combine the peanut butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a bowl.
Once the dough has come together, form small balls about the size of a large walnut.
Roll the balls in granulated sugar and place them on a greased cookie sheet.
With a fork, push down on the balls to create criss-cross creases.
Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes.
Once you have removed them from the oven; sprinkle a bit more sugar on top of the cookies and allow them to cool.
Once they have cooled, you can begin to assemble the sandwiches.
Put jam on one end of a cookie, and scoop strawberry ice cream onto another cookie, and sandwich the two together.
Roll the sides in the peanut butter chips. You can also roll the sandwiches with chopped peanuts.
Once you have assembled the sandwiches, freeze them for about thirty minutes.
