If you're making ice cream sandwiches, you need the proper cookie. These thin and chewy gluten free cookies are the secret to the perfect gluten free ice cream sandwich!
We've been making a lot of gluten free ice cream around here. And we haven't used an ice cream machine even once. A bowl of ice cream is a true summer pleasure. But a gluten free ice cream sandwich is just, well, heaven sent.
For a proper ice cream sandwich, you need the proper cookie: thin, soft & chewy. That way, the cookie yields to your teeth just like the ice cream does. I know cookie-baking means you're going to need to turn on the oven, but try baking up a few batches of your favorite thin and chewy gluten free cookies from the batch below in a row. And do it late at night, after the sun has set and the house is quiet. It's worth the trouble. I promise you that.
Here's a 10¢ tour of these recipes for the perfect gluten free cookies for ice cream sandwiches:
Gluten Free Thin & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies: The Cadillac of ice cream sandwich cookies, these are my personal favorites. These are the cookies that Chipwich-like ice cream sandwiches are made of, and they belong at the top of the list. Long live the Chipwich!
Gluten Free Soft Chocolate Wafer Cookies: Soft and chocolatey, these are the cookies you turn to when you're dreaming of the traditional ice cream sandwich, wrapped in that white paper, vanilla ice cream inside.
Gluten Free Cake Mix M&M Cookies: Talk about quick & easy, these cookies have 4 simple ingredients. And one of them is a cake mix. Use any store-bought gluten free vanilla cake, or make your own with the recipe for Make-Your-Own Vanilla Cake Mix on page 193 of Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Quick & Easy.
Gluten Free Thin & Chewy Nutella Cookies: These cookies sell themselves. Am I right?
Browned Butter Gluten Free Snickerdoodles: These soft and fragrant cookies with an unfortunate name (says me) are delicious filled with vanilla ice cream with some cinnamon & freshly ground nutmeg sprinkled in.
Gluten Free Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Cookies: You can either leave off the icing on these sweet little numbers, or ice them and turn the icing in so it's facing the ice cream. That way, your hands stay clean. Everybody wins!
