July 4th Ice Cream Sandwich – Top Easy Patriotic Holiday Snack Food Design Project

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ΒΊF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the softened butter in a medium bowl along with the sugar and cream until fluffy, at least 3 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, until they are fully incorporated. Add the milk/vinegar mixture, vanilla, and the red food coloring. Be careful with the food coloring. It’s the devil and stains everything it touches.
  4. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the liquid ingredients and stir just until mixed.
  5. Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter for each cookie onto the lined baking sheet. They will spread quite a bit, so leave at least 3 inches of space between. Bake in the oven until the red velvet cookies bounce back when pushed in the middle, about 10 minutes.
  6. Continue this process until all of the batter is used up.
  7. Set the cookies aside to cool, then using a spatula, scrape under the cookies to remove them from the parchment paper. They will stick to the parchment paper, so don’t be afraid to really scrape them off. I tried oiling the parchment paper, but this didn’t seem to make a difference at all.
  8. Trim the cookies with a 2-inch round cutter or leave as is. Place the cookies in the freezer until cold.
  9. Scoop 2 tablespoons of ice cream onto half of the cookies and top with another cookie. Squeeze the sandwiches and smooth the ice cream with a spoon or butter knife so that it is even on the sides. This will enable the toppings to adhere evenly. If the ice cream is melting, place them in the freezer until they firm a bit. If not, proceed to the next step.
  10. Place your sprinkles or nuts (if using) on a plate. Press the sides of the ice cream sandwiches into the sprinkles or nuts until the ice cream is covered. Place the sandwiches on a baking sheet and chill in the freezer until they are firm, about 3 hours.
  11. Devour right away or wrap individually with parchment or wax paper and place in a resealable plastic bag for long term storage (yeah, right!).
