October, with its chill and charm, ushers in the season of creativity for bakers everywhere. Halloween-themed desserts, especially those with the omnipresent pumpkin spice, are the norm. But if you want to bring a unique treat to the party that’s both delightful for kids and adults, consider these Spooky Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Thanks to TikToker @moribyan, you can now learn to make these delightful treats that have taken the internet by storm. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
- Ready-to-bake pumpkin and ghost-shaped sugar cookies from Pillsbury (two sets required)
- Vanilla ice cream (slightly softened)
- Preparation: Preheat the oven according to the cookie packaging instructions. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
- Cookie Arrangement: Place the sugar cookies on the pan in an alternating pumpkin-ghost pattern, making sure they are tightly packed together. Press the cookies down gently to ensure they adhere to each other.
- Baking: Slide the pan into the oven. If you like your cookies a tad underdone, bake for about 11 minutes. For those who like them fully cooked, leave them in for another 2-3 minutes. Once baked, remove and let the cookies cool down.
- Ice Cream Layering: Once the cookies have cooled, spread a generous layer of the slightly softened vanilla ice cream over one sheet of the cookies. Ensure the entire surface is covered.
- Freezing: Transfer the pan to the freezer and let the ice cream set.
- Assembling: After the ice cream is set, remove the pan from the freezer. Carefully flip one cookie sheet, spread another layer of ice cream, and top it with the second sheet of cookies to form a sandwich.
- Cutting and Serving: Using a sharp knife, cut the large sandwich into individual squares. Serve immediately or store in the freezer until needed.
- For an added touch, consider rolling the edges of the ice cream sandwiches in Halloween-themed sprinkles or mini chocolate chips.
- If vanilla isn’t your flavor, feel free to experiment with other ice cream varieties like pumpkin spice or chocolate.
Now, enjoy your chilly Halloween treat that’s sure to be a hit at any spooky gathering! 🎃👻🍦
