Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe Round-up!

What better way to celebrate National Ice Cream Sandwich Day than with a round-up of recipes for my favorite treat.IScreamSandwich_CoverPhoto

Celebrated on August 2, National Ice Cream Sandwich Day is a holiday of slim documentation and dubious origin. It may exist only in the minds of those who enjoy these icy treats. But what’s the harm?

In fact, it seems to me a late date for getting a jump on the ice cream sandwich season. I enjoy the combination of frozen bliss and cookies, brownies, bars, brioche, or even buttered toast (mmm hmm) all year round. Even if you’re a summer-only kind of frozen sandwich person, the season should rightfully begin on Memorial Day at the latest, when entertaining moves out-of-doors, and should easily continue through Labor Day, when you’ve finished staining all your summer whites with dripping strawberry ice cream and fudge ripple.

The earliest documented ice cream sandwiches were found just before the turn of the century at the Jersey Shore, sold for a penny a piece. In the early 1900s they moved away from the beach to pushcarts in New York City’s Bowery. Today you’ll find them not only in ice cream shops but also on restaurant menus and, in a return to days of yore, sold from the modern interpretation of the pushcart: the food truck.

In honor of the holiday, here’s my round-up of ice cream sandwich recipes–from my book and elsewhere–to keep you swathed in ice cream sunshine for the rest of the year.
