Nothing to me screams Summer more than a delicious ice cream sandwich. I love making them (and eating them) all Summer long. They're the perfect 4th of July cookout dessert when you roll them in patriotic sprinkles too! People of all ages love them.

3.In another bowl with an electric mixer cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.
4.Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.

7.Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, scoop out 12 even balls of the dough, flattening the top slightly with your hand.

10.Once chilled take a cookie, add a generous scoop of ice cream on the bottom side, top with another cooking and press it down.
11.Roll the edges of the ice cream into the sprinkles and either serve immediately or place back into the freezer until it is time to eat.
12.Serve and enjoy!
