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


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.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) 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.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.

When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??

This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
