Sugar Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches to welcome our (cool) Northeast Spring

The only thing we can do about this eternal Winter weather is think and act Springlike. Even though the temperature reads freezing, I am making these ice cream sandwiches and keeping them in the freezer until next week when the temperature is going to climb a bit.

Hopefully, these treats inspire the weather to skip spring and go straight to an early summer!

Light and buttery flavored dairy-free sugar cookies sandwiched with a dollop of dairy-free vanilla ice cream.

Recipe written by Gourmetmarichef


  • 2  2/3 c. flour
  • 1 c. dairy-free butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp. dairy-free milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ c. course sugar for topping


preheat oven to 350°

  1. Using just one medium bowl for this easy recipe, hand mix all of the ingredients with a wooden spoon.

  2. When the dough becomes too difficult to mix with a spoon, start manually mixing by kneading the dough with your hands in the bowl.
  3. The dough should not be too dry. If it needs one more Tbsp. of dairy-free milk, add it.
  4. If you use a cookie press, don’t refrigerate. If you wish to roll the dough and cut shapes out, pre-chill for 1 hour.
  5. It’s alright if there is a bit of course sugar on the cookie sheet before placing cookies on it, the sugar makes the cookie have extra crispy edges!

  6. Before baking, pour a bit of course sugar on top of each cookie.image2
  7. Bake 11-14 minutes. Halfway through baking, turn the pan around to enable even baking.
  8. The cookies are done when slightly browned on the sides. They may still appear light in color, but the bottom is baked to perfection.

  9. Remove the cookies from the baking pan with a spatula immediately after they are done and are still warm. If you let them cool off on the pan, the spatula will crack them.
  10. The course sugar melts on the top and sides, and since I used the flower design, the center of the flower is a sugary treat.
  11. Enjoy for a dessert by themselves, or fill with any flavor ice-cream.
