When the Bachsters went back to school at the end of August, I wanted to make everyone a yummy treat to enjoy when they came home. Homemade ice cream sandwiches seemed like just the thing to celebrate back-to-school. I used the chocolate ice cream sandwich cookies from David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop and filled them with vanilla ice cream (Philadelphia style). They were indeed a very yummy after-school treat, even for those of us who are no longer in school.
The funny thing about these ice cream sandwiches is that they provoke the pinky-effect:
