Prep Time:1 hour 30 minutes
Cook Time:12 minutes
Total Time:1 hour 42 minutes
1 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
3⁄4 cup cocoa powder
3⁄4 cup butter, softened
2⁄3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 pints ice cream, softened (any flavor)
Combine all-purpose flour and cocoa powder.
In a large bowl, combine softened butter and sugar and beat with a mixer on high speed until fluffy.
Beat in eggs and vanilla extract until well blended.
Reduce the mixer speed to low and beat in the flour mixture.
Divide dough in half, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
Line 9 x13-inch baking pan with plastic wrap. Transfer ice cream from its package to the baking pan and smooth ice cream evenly into pan with a spoon. Cover with plastic wrap and place it in your freezer.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Dust a large surface and a rolling pin with cocoa powder, roll out one of the cookie dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a 2.5-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out cookies, then transfer to a baking sheet. Set the cookies 1 inch apart from each other. Do the same with the other cookie dough.
Bake the cookies for 12 minutes and let cool for 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks. Bake in batches if necessary.
Once the cookies are completely cool, take out the ice cream from your freezer. Use the same cookie cutter to cut out heart-shaped portions of ice cream, sandwich the ice cream between two cookies, and place in freezer until ready to serve.
You could use a larger heart-shaped cookie cutter for different sized ice cream sandwiches.
Optionally, roll the side of each sandwich into sprinkles before freezing.
