Strawberry Lemonade Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches



Because this time of year, "I scream...we all scream for ice cream"...TOTALLY!
So ice cream and cookies?  I think that calls for lots more screaming!

Cake mix cookies are so easy to make and can be used in a variety of ways.  I used Tablespoon's recipe for the strawberry lemonade cookies.

Every ice cream sandwich must start with a good cookie and strawberry lemonade cookies just say summer!

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

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 teaspoon 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 powdered sugar. Place on a greased baking sheet at least 2 inches apart because they will spread. Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake each batch for 10 minutes, until they turn slightly golden and are cooked through. Let sit 1 minute before transfering to wire rack and let cool completely before using for ice cream sandwiches.

Makes 2 1/2 dozen medium sized cookies

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

I think you can give the ice cream truck a run for it's money!!!
How do you stay cool in the summer?
