Red White & Blue Ice Cream Sandwiches!

4th of July is my favorite holiday! I love everything about it- the colors, the decorations, the food and mostly the meaning behind it. Today I'm SO excited to be gearing up for 4th of July with this fun Blog Hop packed full of awesome NEW ideas for you! 


 Red, white and blue desserts are always part of our 4th of July celebration. Today I'm sharing a classic All American dessert with a red, white and blue twist.


Here's the recipe for you: 

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 sticks butter, room temp
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups red white & blue M&Ms candies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large cookie sheet (jelly roll pan) with non-stick cooking spray.  In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside. In a stand mixer, combine butter and sugars until well mixed. Add in the eggs and vanilla until well blended. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients. Fold in the M&Ms. Spread onto cookie sheet and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Bake until lightly golden, about 18-22 minutes. Cool completely. Use a round cookie cutter (or ANY shape!) to make your sandwiches- 2 cookies cut per sandwich. 


For the ice cream part, I like my ice cream sandwiches to have a nice, smooth look to them so I use a cutting board, 2 sheets of freezer paper (parchment or wax paper would work too), and a rolling pin.  I just scoop out my ice cream onto the cutting board lined with one sheet of freezer paper. Then I place the other sheet of freezer paper on top and roll it out until it's smooth. Pop the whole thing in the freezer and once your cookies are cooled and your ice cream is frozen (it gets a bit soft during the rolling part) then you can assemble your ice cream sandwiches. Just cut your ice cream using the same cookie cutter you used for the cookies so everything is the same size.
