  • Using a 9x13 inch pan, line the base with parchment paper, allowing the parchment to hang over the sides of the pan. Then, spread ½ of your cookie dough onto the base of the pan, pressing until even with your fingers or with the help of a flat-based cup.
  • Cover the first layer of cookie dough with another piece of parchment paper, then create the final cookie dough layer with the second half of your dough. Allow to chill for one hour in the freezer.
  • Once the cookie dough layers are frozen, remove them from the freezer and lift the top layer of cookies dough out of the pan. Spread the slightly softened Ice Cream onto the base layer, topping with the second layer of cookie dough.•

Expert Tips
Making cookie dough ice cream sandwiches is really quite easy, but I’ve assembled my best tips to ensure yours come out absolutely perfectly:
    1. Before assembling, make sure that the cookie dough is chilled and solid! This will make your life much easier when putting everything together.
    2. Make sure your ice cream is softened by letting it stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes before assembling the sandwiches.
    3. Set up your mise en place. Ice cream can be really challenging to work with as it melts incredibly fast! To ensure that your ice cream is softened and not melted, I would suggest ensuring that you've prepared your workspace beforehand so that the assembly is quick!
  • Use a hot, sharp knife. Once you’ve assembled the ice cream sandwiches, you’ll want to use a very sharp, very hot knife to help you make clean cuts. I suggest keeping a tall glass of boiling water and a clean kitchen towel nearby to assist as needed.
    1. Once assembled, place your ice cream sandwiches straight into the freezer to properly chill before enjoying and storing.
Frequently Asked Questions.
Can I make vegan cookie dough ice cream sandwiches? Yep! Simply swap in your favorite plant-based milk and butter, and opt for the vegan ice cream of your choice.
Can I make gluten-free chocolate cookie dough? Sure! Any cup-for-cup all-purpose gluten-free flour substitute should work perfectly in place of the wheat flour in this recipe. Please consult your package to see if the flour still needs to be heat treated.
Can I just eat the edible cookie dough without making ice cream sandwiches? Heck yeah, you can! Spoonfuls of cookie dough are a delicious way to treat yourself. Feel free to store it in the freezer for up to a month, or in the fridge for up to a week. 
How should I store them? If you are not planning on eating your homemade cookie dough ice cream sandwiches within a day or two, make sure you give them the attention they deserve. I suggest individually wrapping the sandwiches in parchment paper, then stacking them in a zip-top bag. Remove as much air as possible, then seal and freeze. Ice cream sandwiches should last for 1-2 weeks in the freezer if properly sealed.
