How to Make Your Own Ice Cream Sandwich

The Florida heat is no joke, and because of it, I’m always looking for fun indoor activities to beat the heat and stay cool. One of my favorites? Here’s a hint – it involves ice cream and homemade cookies!


Is it just me or do cookies seem to go perfectly with ice cream? I always head straight for Mayfield’s yellow containers of ice cream, which are pretty popular here in the southeast. And it’s new at Walmart, so you know it’s in demand!

Wondering why people love it so much? Mayfield Dairy began making ice cream back in 1923 so is a well-established brand that focuses on southern hospitality and bringing families together. Plus, they continue to use their same original process today, which ensures the most authentic southern flavors, including fresh cream from their own dairy with no artificial growth hormones. Definite winner in my book!


So how can you make your own ice cream sandwich? It’s easy!

What You’ll Need (Ingredients)

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 + 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Mayfield ice cream* (this will be used post-cookie making)


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  • Mix all of the ingredients together into a bowl (with the exception of the ice cream)
  • Scoop out bits of batter and place 1-inch apart on a cookie sheet
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until golden-brown and let cool


Once the cookies have cooled, you’re ready to bring in the ice cream!

  • Stack piles of 2 cookies for each ice cream sandwich you want to make
  • Flip both cookies so they’re each face down
  • Take a big scoop of your Mayfield ice cream and place it on one of the cookies
  • Place the ice cream-free cookie on top to complete the sandwich
  • Enjoy!

    • It’s in the south but I think slowly making it’s way up and across the country. Hopefully it’ll get to you soon! If not, you’ll have to make a note to plan a trip somewhere in the south so you can pick some up :)

        I actually haven’t. We were so consumed in the Olympics and by the time I would think of it it was close to midnight and I could barely keep my eyes open. I want to do it this weekend!

  • Rae

    Moose Tracks ice cream? That alone might be enough to persuade me to move to the south!

    • Thanks, Susannah! I wish I could share them through the computer. It’s so tempting to eat them all :)
