Total Time30 mins
- 1 stick (8 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup sprinkles + more for decorating
- 3 cups vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together the butter and sugar in a stand mixer on high (or with a hand mixer).
Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and sprinkles.
Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat on low until a smooth dough is formed.
Chill the dough for 20 minutes.
Using a cookie scoop, drop cookie dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, rotating halfway through baking time.
Allow the cookies to cool on baking sheets.
Once cookies are completely cooled, make ice cream sandwiches. Place about ¼ cup of ice cream between each of two cookies for one sandwich.
Wrap each sandwich individually in plastic wrap and allow to freeze for at least four hours before serving.
The ice cream sandwiches can be stored in the freezer for up to one month.
