Giant Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe

Giant Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe

"I was an inexperienced cook when I married," relates Charlene Turnbull, Wainwright, Alberta. "A good friend, who was a cooking inspiration to me, shared many of her recipes, including this scrumptious dessert. It's handy to pull out of the freezer for unexpected guests."
