    Who in their right mind wouldn't like ice cream sandwiches? I love super-soft cookies, so these sound like heaven to me. And I love that you threw in some toffee bits, too. Good choice 🙂

    Ahh, there we go! It was going to ruin my day if I couldn't comment about homemade ice cream sandwiches. And who are these crazy people who claim not to like them?? That's insane. Best thing on earth. I love the toffee bits around the edges, they look divine!

    I never ever ate ice cream sandwiched before. I didn't even know they excited. But I have to say they look absolutely delicious. Great idea!

    The cookie part of that ice cream sandwich looks amazing in itself!

    I completely agree with you, because I hate store-bought ice cream sandwiches, yet I have never had a homemade one? I would love to have this recipe be the first one that I try!

    These ice cream sandwiches look amazing! I'm impressed that you got such a good photo without it melting all over the place:-)

      I read a tip somewhere to freeze the individual scoops of ice cream before taking photos and that seemed to work. Granted I only had about 3 minutes of photo time to work with 😉

    Devestatingly, my poor sensitive teeth won't let me take a bite out of an ice cream sandwich, and attacking with a spoon doesn't seem quite right.
    Ah well, a bowl of ice cream and a separate bowl of cookies it'll have to be!

    I have a question: I want to make these for a party and I want the cookies to be soft and chewy…Do you recommend freezing the cookies and letting them thaw before serving or just baking them and letting them cool down before serving? Cant wait to make them! Thanks!

      Cassandra – for the softest cookies I would bake them and let them cool before assembling with the ice cream and serving. You could even make the cookies a few days ahead of time and just store them in an airtight container at room temperature before serving. These cookies stay soft for a few days 🙂

    I just made some of these today! Such a fun idea for summer! I like how you used the butterscotch, I will have to try them sometime!
