Summertime treat from my childhood: wafer ice cream sandwiches.

Have to admit, I don’t make these ice cream sandwiches very often. Growing older made me kind of grow apart from the treat called ice cream, I don’t eat it often, but often, I caught myself craving a specific kind of childhood sweets. Here is one of them. Hope you try my recipe and enjoy it !

To assemble the ice cream sandwiches

Dip the cookie cutter in cold water and cut out the ice cream

Place on the wafer layer and cover with the second layer to form a sandwich

You can dip the sides in toasted, crushed nuts, sprinkles or mini chocolate chips
