RED VELVET ICE CREAM SANDWICH
- 24 red velvet cookies, shaped into stars
- 2 pints vanilla or cheesecake flavored ice cream
- Sprinkles, if desired
Allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature until softened. Line a large rimmed baking pan (or another similar large, flat container with parchment paper or plastic wrap. Spread softened ice cream evenly over lined baking sheet. Press additional plastic wrap against the surface of the ice cream. Freeze until totally firm, at least 2 hours or up to 3 days. The longer you freeze, the easier it will be to form the ice cream sandwiches.
When ready to assemble, remove ice cream sheet from freezer. Using the same cookie cutter you used for shaping the cookies, cut out shapes of ice cream and sandwich it between two cookies. Place on a rimmed tray and if the pop into the freezer as you assemble all the sandwiches, adding more to the freezer to keep them cold.
Repeat for remaining cookies, working quickly. If ice cream begins to melt, return to freezer until firm again.
Freeze sandwiches until firm, at least 1 hour, before serving.
Sandwiches can be individually wrapped in plastic and stored in freezer for up to 1 week. Let sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
