Gingerbread Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

Guys, hi. Get excited, okay? This is a the ultimate cookie sandwich. I like to pair this sandwich with a big mug of tea (peppermint perhaps?) and watch Christmas movies while enjoying the holiday season. I can’t think of a better way to spend an evening.

Of course I didn’t get to actually do that yet, although I hope I do at some point! And I hope that you do too!
I made a batch of these earlier today and ate half of the ice cream before it was even frozen while decorating a cake for my dad’s birthday. Then I made another recipe (coming soon!) and ate half of that too. Constant snacking all day here. That’s what Sunday’s are for, right?

Anyways, one of these cookie sandwiches is enough to satisfy you for hours to come. Gooey gingerbread cookies paired with a rich cinnamon ice cream, mmmm. Enough talking though, let’s get to the actual recipe.
