I Scream Sandwich

I swear I may melt. It is that hot in Chicago, so this brand new cookbook I Scream Sandwich couldn’t have come at a better time!

I Scream Sandwich redefines the ice cream sandwich. It can easily be the star of a dinner party, a birthday party, a family picnic, or just a lazy summer afternoon. There is quite the variety of ice cream sandwich recipes to pick from. You can choose from the classic (chocolate cookie bars with vanilla ice cream) to the seasonal (blackberry buttermilk ice cream on crispy meringues) to the exotic (kaffir lime and lemongrass sorbet on five-spice cookies). If cookies are your forte, they also have recipe using brownies, cakes, bars, brioche, crusts, gelatos, and sorberts. As this lactose-intolerant ice cream lover was shocked to find, there are even some dairy free options in here. Seriously, there is pretty much a recipe for everyone in here!

If you are looking for a great dessert to end this summer, you have to get your hands on I Scream Sandwich!

You just mix the ingredients together and add to the Holstein Mini Whoopie Pie Maker. You close the machine for about 2 minutes, pull them out, and put them on a cooling rack. Once cooled, add some frosting, put the cakes together, and decorate. It was that easy!
