Pumpkin Ice Cream SandwichSnickerdoodle Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches might be too long of a title, but I wanted to capture its every essence.  🙂  Earlier this week when I posted the recipe for the Pumpkin Ice Cream, I promised to share how I used it with another favorite treat.  Here it is!  This was in my mind all along when I decided to make pumpkin ice cream.  The combination of this and the Snickerdoodles just made sense!

Pumpkin Ice Cream SandwichTo make these, you could just sandwich some ice cream between two cookies with an ice cream scoop, but I have found a much nicer approach.  Below is a photo tutorial of how you can make a cleaner sandwich using a round cookie cutter.  For the sake of the tutorial, I used homemade vanilla ice cream because I didn’t think to take photos when I made the pumpkin ones.  So, please, don’t be confused! 😉

*This tutorial is for using homemade ice cream.

  22. The snickerdoodle Pumpkin Ice Cream photo grabbed my attention immediately! I love pumpkin anything so I will definitely need to try this recipe.

    PS. The pictures for each step are so helpful! I’m one of those people who need photos to look at when baking or cooking 🙂

  23. When I saw your recipe it reminded me of my childhood, when the ice cream man pushes his trolley on our village and sell treats like this one (Bun filled with ice cream), but this one takes it more notches higher as you are using that special Snickerdoodle Buns


  24. ohhhhh I always wondered how people get the ice cream so neat! I was actually wondering that when I clicked on your photo… Thanks for the tutorial!

  25. OMG…those look YUMMY!! I need to stop procrastinating and get an ice cream maker! Thanks for sharing!

  27. Stacie Frost says:

    I love your step-by-step instructions…they made me laugh. These sound super yummy!!!

  28. I don’t like Snickerdoodles and I am still drooling over those. I am going to have to make your pumpkin pie ice cream and then serve it between molasses cookies!

    You have just made me even more excited for fall!

    I will be featuring these on my blog tomorrow!!

  29. Oh, wow! I saw @homepodge mentioned on twitter – I have no idea how I missed them the first time around.

  30. This looks fantastic! I’m definitely going to try and make these 🙂

  31. This has so many of my favorite things at once! Thank you for sharing this, it is amazing!!

  32. Just wanted to let you know that I featured you on my Friday Favorites!

  33. You could freeze the ice cream in rinsed out frozen juice concentrate containers, then just take off the other end of the container and slide it out (may need to run hot water over outside for a few seconds) and slice it into rounds to put on the cookies (a warm knife might work best for this). That way you don’t have leftover pieces that you have to melt and refreeze into a patty again to cut.

    The snickerdoodle, or molasses, cookie and pumpkin ice cream sandwich sounds fabulous. I will have to try this.

  34. These are beautiful! I found you via Pinterest and finally got around to making some. I was not patient enough to make mine look good, but they were definitely delicious!

  35. What a perfect blend of fall and summer goodness!
