Brown Sugar Cinnamon Ice Cream Sandwiches

Brown sugar and cinnamon ice cream is sandwiched between oatmeal cookies, for ice cream sandwich nirvana.





It's  the second week of July and we are in the middle of a heat wave! When brainstorming about this post, I decided I wanted to try making homemade ice cream sandwiches. I decided to go with oatmeal cookies as the base and started to think of what kind of ice cream would go well with them. I often have oatmeal cookies with cinnamon in them, so I decided to make a brown sugar cinnamon ice cream to fill my ice cream sandwiches. These are amazing! The ice cream pairs perfectly with the oatmeal cookies. You have a contrast of chewy crispy cookie and silky smooth ice cream. The ice cream itself tastes like a cinnamon roll, so it could be enjoyed with or without the oatmeal cookies!





Brown Sugar Cinnamon Ice Cream Sandwiches



Cookies:

3/4 C all purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/3 C (3/4 stick) butter

1/2 C sugar

3 Tbs brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg ( I used an extra large egg)

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/4 C large flake oatmeal


Ice Cream:

1 1/2 C heavy cream (35%)

2 cinnamon sticks

2 cardamom pods

2/3 C brown sugar

3 egg yolks (I used extra large eggs)

1 C cream

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp ground cinnamon



In a small sauce pot, bring 1 1/2 C heavy cream, cinnamon sticks and cardamom pods to a simmer. Turn off heat, cover and let steep for 1 1/2 hrs. When ready to continue, turn heat to medium , remove the lid and whisk in the brown sugar. When the mixture returns to a simmer, slowly pour a small amount of the hot cream into the egg yolks, while continuously whisking to ensure yolks do not scramble. Whisk in another small amount of the cream mixture into eggs; until smooth. 


Return cream mixture to the heat and whisk in the tempered egg yolks. Cook until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and pour through a fine mesh strainer, into a large mixing bowl. This will strain out the cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks and any pieces of cooked egg there may be. 


Whisk in the remaining 1 C heavy cream, vanilla and ground cinnamon. Cover with cling wrap, directly onto the surface to prevent crusting, and refrigerate until completely cold; about 3-4 hours. Once cold, pour mixture into your ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions. Place churned ice cream into a freezer safe container, with a lid, and place in the freezer to continue to set up.


Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.


In a small mixing bowl combine the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt.


In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars, until smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla and beat until fluffy. Add in dry ingredients and stir until fully combined.


Using a medium cookie scoop (this ensures your cookies will be the same size for your sandwiches), drop batter onto parchment lined baking sheets. Using slightly wet hands, gently press the cookies down, so that they are flat (do not spread out too thin, just make sure there isn't a hump on the top). Bake for 8-10 minutes; until sides and tops begin to brown slightly. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.


When ready to assemble, use your medium ice cream scoop and place 1 scoop onto the flat bottom of 1 cookie. Top with a second cookie (flat bottom on the ice cream) and gently press down until ice cream reaches the edges of the cookies. Repeat with remaining cookies and ice cream. Serve immediately, or store covered in the freezer for up to 3 days.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

AMAZING Crockpot Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken #Blogtober

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate, I may earn commission from these links. I offer them to you at no extra charge. I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
