Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches

IMG_7430

Finally, pumpkin pie ice cream sandwiches! I say finally because there were long overdue. I was planning to make them around Thanksgiving but finally got around to them last week. I made a custard base of equal parts whole milk and heavy cream, regular sugar, brown sugar, and a few egg yolks. Then I added pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices. I used canned pumpkin puree from Trader Joe’s but next time I think i’ll make my own kabocha puree for yummier results.

I wanted the sandwiching cookies to taste a bit like graham crackers. I made a chewy sugar cookie base and added vanilla, cinnamon and honey. Oh, and I also substituted 1/4 cup of wheat flour for all-purpose flour. I scooped the dough with an ice cream scooper for size consistency (all hope would be lost if I tried to make same-sized balls with a spoon) then dipped one side in turbinado sugar and baked them sugar side up. Man these cookies were bomb! I totally underestimated the potential of American sugar cookies.

Now sandwich the pumpkin pie ice cream between two graham sugar cookies and you got yourself a nice sweet treat.
