What is better than a glass of Egg Nog during the holidays?
Egg Nog ice cream that's what, sandwiched between two chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies. Whoa...prepare to have your mind blown!
It is basically holiday wrapped up into one lip smackin' good ice cream sandwich.
I am a big fan of ice cream being an appropriate dessert all throughout the year. I am the girl who has a scarf and gloves on eating ice cream outside that people look at like she's crazy. This is because ice cream happens to be one of my favorite foods. There is no way I could ever give it up. My father-in-law happens to be the only other person I know who loves it as much as I do. We have formed quite the ice cream bond over the years.
My husband on the other hand prefers cookies. All kinds of cookies (except sugar cookies), which is why ice cream sandwiches make both of us really happy. It's the best of both worlds!
Since egg nog is pretty much an ice cream base in a drink it was the easiest ice cream I have ever made. And the ginger molasses cookies are super easy as well and are the perfect spicy balance to the decadent ice cream. Just build the sandwiches and freeze them individually and they are ready when you are.
