It's-It Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

You'll discover why the treat is so popular in San Francisco. It's snack cream, delicious oatmeal cookies and a touch of chocolate. Swap out the vanilla for your favorite flavor, such as chocolate, caramel or cherry. — Jacyn Siebert, San Francisco, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + freezing Bake: 15 min./batch + cooling YIELD:7 servings


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped raisins, optional
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 bottle (7-1/4 ounces) chocolate hard-shell ice cream topping


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in oats and, if desired, raisins.
  • 2. Shape into fourteen 1-1/4-in. balls; place 2-1/2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until golden brown, 11-13 minutes. Cool on pans 3 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 3. To assemble ice cream sandwiches, place 1/3 cup ice cream on bottom of a cookie. Top with a second cookie, pressing gently to flatten ice cream. Place on a baking sheet; freeze until firm. Repeat with remaining cookies and ice cream.
  • 4. Remove ice cream sandwiches from the freezer. Working over a small bowl, drizzle chocolate topping over half of each sandwich, allowing excess to drip off.
  • 5. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; freeze until serving. Wrap individually in plastic wrap for longer storage. Yield: 7 servings.

"So yummy!! The cookies remain chewing even straight out of the freezer. Next time I will make smaller cookies, as these are huge!"

"These taste exactly like the real deal. The cookie recipe is the key. And instead of just half , we covered them completely in chocolate (which is how they come out of package). Will definitely be making them again!"
