Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

My mother used to make snickerdoodle cookies, when I was a kid, and it was one of my favorite cookies. Here is a recipe that follows that tradition but is a better dessert. You will need these ingredients:

  • 1 cube of butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • dash of salt
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 T. granulated sugar
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt the butter in the microwave for about thirty seconds. Remove and pour it in a mixing bowl. Add the cup of sugar and egg. Blend well. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar. Mix well. Set aside. In a small bowl, add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and 2 T. of granulated sugar. Shape dough into balls and dip into cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place balls on ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned on edges. Remove from oven and allow to cool on wire rack. After cooled, you may scoop ice cream onto a cookie and top it with another cookie. Press gently to flatten ice cream. Wrap in plastic or wax paper. Freeze sandwiches overnight.
