Peach Gingerbread Ice Cream Sandwiches

Peach Ice Cream

So, I’ve made this delicious peach ice cream when ice cream sandwiches were brought to my attention.  My mom used to make gingerbread and serve it with cold sliced peaches. Peach Ice Cream

I bought a box mix of ginger bread (Betty Crocker) and made the soft cookie recipe off the box.  They turned out perfectly soft and chewy.  Just what was needed for these ice cream sandwiches.

I can remember eating ice cream sandwiches on a hot summer afternoon and trying to lick every bit of the ice cream as it oozed out the sides of the chocolate wafer cookie.  The last bite was usually runny and it was the best.  Don’t you find that true of a sandwich or a biscuit?  The last bite has just the right amount of mustard, meat and lettuce or butter and jelly to make it the perfect bite.

Well, these ice cream sandwiches were the perfect bite all the way around – from the first bite to the last.

I made up the cookies according to the soft and chewy recipe on the box and let them cool completely before I stored them in an air-tight container.

When ready to serve, I pulled out the little bit of ice cream leftover from the first round and let is slightly soften.  I used a small ice cream scoop and placed the ice cream in the center and used an off-set spatula to spread it.  Then topped that with another gingerbread cookie.

I returned each to the freezer as I made it.  They were stored in a freezer container to be served as needed.  They won’t last long.

Old Fashioned Gingerbread….

This recipe makes me think of a cool day by the fire place with a cup of hot tea after finishing running errands on Saturday. Of course, this only happens here in El Paso on a rare occasion so I have to be ready and take advantage of that day!

I usually bake more than one of these at a time – one to serve and one to share with a friend.  I can drop this by your house after it cools. Would your family like this?  It is that good.  Just be sure to include the recipe.  They will ask anyway.  Share your recipes.  Remembering who gave me a recipe is as important as what it is I bake.

Refrigerate and keep this well sealed with foil until all the leftovers are gone.  Served
with Cool Whip or whipped cream with the zest of an orange in it is even better.

This is wonderful as dessert for Thanksgiving dinner.
