Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Ice Cream Sandwiches 

Homemade Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Ice Cream Sandwiches

I think this has to be one of my favorite blog posts to write about so far. Ice cream sandwiches make me happy. And ice cream sandwiches that are gluten-free, dairy-free and free of most common allergens, make me even happier.

These ice cream sandwiches are fairly easy to make, and they do taste just like the ones I enjoyed during my childhood.

How to Make a Gluten-Free, Dairy Free Ice Cream Sandwich

I've made these sandwiches with a ice cream sandwich maker and without, and I think it's just a bit easier with the ice cream sandwich maker. The ice cream sandwich maker I used for this post is the Norpro Ice Cream Sandwich Maker. You don't have to use an ice cream sandwich maker. You can use a rectangle cookie cutter or a large round cookie cutter, and make the sandwiches yourself. I prepared them like that before I started using the sandwich maker.

Step 1:

Bake up the Chocolate Wafers recipe on pages 279 - 280 of my cookbook, Celeste's Best Gluten-Free, Allergen-Free Recipes or any cookie recipe. I find the thinner you can roll out the cookie dough, the better. I roll mine out to 1/8-inch thick. Cut the cookies into the desired shape for the sandwiches. Let the cookies completely cool.

The rectangle cookies on the bottom rack will be used for the ice cream sandwiches.

Step 2:

Prepare the ice cream. For the sandwiches pictured on this blog, I used the Vanilla Ice Cream recipe found on page 347 of my cookbook. (It's easy to spread the ice cream if you use it moments after making it and it's still soft and pliable.)

But you can use any flavor ice cream in my cookbook or in my new eBook Celeste's Best Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Ice Cream and Frozen Desserts (available now!).

Step 3 - Prepare Workspace

Cut a small sheet of parchment paper, a 7-inch square, to place your sandwich on which will help prevent it from sticking.

Step 4 - Begin Assembling the Sandwich

Place the white base of the maker on the parchment paper. Then lightly insert the clear plastic piece on top of it. (And I do mean "lightly" - otherwise it will be very difficult to remove the ice cream sandwich after assembling.)

And then top it with a layer of ice cream.

Step 5: Removing the Sandwich Mold

Level off the ice cream with the back end of a knife, top with another wafer and then flip the maker over place on the parchment paper.

Then gently push the sandwich through the mold.

Let sandwiches harden for a few hours in freezer before eating. Or wrap in freezer paper and store in a plastic freezer bag and freeze to enjoy later.
