The best projects are the ones that don’t take a ton of effort, yet still turn out super cute and make people REALLY happy… am I right, or am I right?! This is one of those projects. AND it’s an edible one – hence the part about making people really happy. ;)
And even though the 4th of July is just about here, there’s still plenty of time to whip up these adorable Patriotic Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to LOVE how they turn out!
All you need are sugar cookies, vanilla ice cream, a star shaped cookie cutter, and red/white/blue sprinkles.
I used Krusteaz® Butter Vanilla Sugar Cookie Mix for the cookies, and used the “Cut Out Cookie” recipe on the back of the box, which is just entails adding 1/3 cup butter and 1 egg to the mix. Easy-peasy. The cookies are exactly what the name says. Buttery. Vanilla-y. Sugar-y. YUM.
I’ll explain the rest of the ice cream sandwich steps below, but have one more fun thing to share first… a brand new batch of patriotic printables that you can download here for FREE!
I started with designing some Mini Party Flags to dress up these ice cream sandwiches, but decided they needed some accessories to match, so you’ll find an 8×10 Sweets Sign, two 4×6 Signs, and a USA Banner here as well. (Click on the links to download.) Hope you like!
Banners add a big dose of fun to any party! You can also print extra copies of the decorative panels on this one to make additional banners that just alternate between the flag/country and heart graphics:
