Summer Strawberry Lemonade Ice Cream Sandwiches

Yum
The heat of the summer calls for frozen treats!
Here's a good one for strolling down Memory Lane Monday.


Vanilla ice cream is sandwiched between strawberry lemonade cookies.


These cookies are one sweet treat on their own. 


Using strawberry lemonade cookies for ice cream sandwiches totally makes them summer!
And let's face it...you gotta make each and every summer day count in the Midwest!




adapted from Gimme Some Oven
Ingredients:

1 (15.25 ounce) Betty Crocker Super Moist lemon cake mix

1 (15.25 ounce) Betty Crocker Super Moist strawberry cake mix

4 eggs
2/3 cup vegetable oil (divided)
2 tsp lemon juice
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Begin by making the two cake mixes. Pour the lemon cake mix into a large bowl and the strawberry cake mix in another bowl. To each cake mix, add 2 eggs, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Mix until well blended.  Cover and refrigerate each bowl for 20 minutes to firm cookie dough. Remove cookie dough and take 1 rounded teaspoons of lemon cookie dough and roll into a ball. Repeat with the strawberry cookie dough. Gently roll the lemon and strawberry dough together to make one large ball.

Transfer the dough ball into a bowl with 1 cup of powdered sugar, and roll to lightly coat in sugar. Place on a greased baking sheet at least 2 inches apart. Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake each batch for 10 minutes, until they turn slightly golden and are cooked through. Let sit 1 minute before transferring to wire rack and let cool completely before using for ice cream sandwich.
Makes 2 1/2 dozen medium cookies or 18 large cookies

To assemble, take 2 cookies and place 1/4 cup vanilla ice cream in between to create an ice cream cookie sandwich.


Frozen treats need to be in your freezer ready for when you need something to cool you down.
Wrap each Summer Strawberry Lemonade Ice Cream Sandwich individually and place in your freezer.  Just grab as needed.

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
