I sure hope you listened to me on Monday and got your lemon ice cream ready!  If so, time to whip up these chewy ginger cookies and prepare for ice cream sandwich heaven.  If not, get to the ice cream stat.  Lucky for you it’s easy to make, you just need to be patient during the freezing time.

Amazing Ginger and Lemon Ice Cream Sandwiches

 

Anyway, I’m pretty obsessed with these sandwiches.  The ginger cookies are chewy, even after freezing, and just so delicious.  If you eat a few while making the ice cream sandwiches, I won’t tell anyone.  Just don’t mistake them for a traditional gingersnap.  These are more like a brown sugar cookie with a nice ginger flavor.  No overpowering ginger to be found.
