Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

Meet the Cook: My mom sent me this recipe. We love it, and so does company I serve it to. I inherited my love of cooking from my mother. She's a former home economics teacher. When we were growing up, each of us five kids had a night a week when we planned and prepared supper for the rest of the family. Our home is "way out in the sticks", 15 miles from town and 5 miles from the nearest neighbor. My husband and I have a son, 20, and a daughter, 17. -Kea Fisher, Bridger, Montana
