Cool & Creamy Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

The unlikely combination of ingredients (including jalapeno peppers and strawberry ice cream) in this cool dessert creates a wonderfully grown-up version of a classic ice cream sandwich. —Melissa Hansen, Rochester, MN
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + freezing YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeno peppers
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 1/4 cup jalapeno pepper jelly
  • 8 soft snickerdoodle cookies
  • 4 scoops strawberry ice cream
  • 4 fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

Directions

  • 1. In a small skillet, saute peppers in butter until tender. Add jelly; set aside to cool.
  • 2. To make ice cream sandwiches, place a scoop of ice cream on the bottom of half of the cookies. Top with strawberries, jalapeno mixture and remaining cookies. Wrap each in plastic wrap; freeze on a baking sheet overnight. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
