Desert Ice Cream Sandwhich

Here is a little something to sweeten the race! As you may or may not know, we are from Boulder, Colorado. We are showing our true colors here with these gluten free cookie sandwiches. They are so dang good, we promise no one will know the difference! We made chocolate chip cookie sandwiches with pasticcio ice cream, and a white chocolate chip and macadamia nut cookie with double chocolate ice cream!

We have quite a few friends who have a gluten intolerance, and we’ve tested out many recipes!  For desserts coconut flour is one of our favorites.  The yummy coconut flavor complements sweets, and the consistency holds together while providing enough moisture so the cookies don’t just crumble into a million pieces.  We blended a little tapioca flour into this recipe, and it came out quite nice!

Roll the dough into golf sized balls.  You will cook them for 5 minutes and then slightly flatten them with the back of a spatula.  They don’t go down into flat cookies, they need a little help.

Let cool completely before making the ice cream sandwiches.  You can also make them ahead of time, and freeze them individually wrapped in saran wrap.
