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!

    It’s interesting, because commercial ice cream sandwich makers actually do use crispy cookies, and then count on time to cause a bit of the moisture in the ice cream to soften the cookies. So here’s my thought – we stock our freezers in winter with ice cream sandwiches in the winter, and then they are perfect in the summer! ;) (Otherwise, who wants to wait that long to dig into an ice cream sanwdwich??)

      Huh. I didn’t know that, Donia. Interesting. Well, with these cookies, there’s no waiting. :)

      I watch too many food television shows, and I seem to have an obsession with the ones showing food factories.

    oooo…seeing those iced oatmeal cookies have got me going here. I’m totally making those this weekend and sharing with some neighbors that have recently had to go GF just like us. Also, do you think the speculoos/biscoff cookies would work in an ice cream sammy too? those have been on my list to make for weeks. It is definitely happening today.

      You’ve got some lucky neighbors, Jennifer! The speculoos cookies would not, I’m afraid, make good ice cream sandwich cookies. For ice cream sandwiches, you need soft and chewy cookies. Those are crispy. You basically want to match the texture of the ice cream, as frozen, with the cookies. Hope that helps!
