Did you know that February 6 is Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day? I’m all about celebrating the little things and in partnership with Hudsonville Ice Cream, I’m sharing with you my Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches recipe. I’m going to tell myself I’m eating oatmeal, therefore it’s totally acceptable to add a little ice cream for breakfast. Bonus – your kids will think you’re crazy and awesome all at the same time. These are my kind of favorite memories to make. My chewy cookie paired with your favorite Hudsonville Ice Cream flavor is a fun way to start the day.
Making Special Memories
Hattie and I are always in the kitchen together, so it’s no surprise that she’d want to help me this morning. In our jammies and coffee in hand, we set out to make ice cream sandwiches for breakfast! She proclaimed it was the best morning ever. Sometimes getting out of your hectic morning routine can really spark a great memory and can lead to many more requests to have ice cream for breakfast.
Hudsonville Ice Cream
Hudsonville Ice Cream is our go-to ice cream. It’s creamy, delicious, and helps to make our family memories even sweeter. Based in Michigan and available throughout the Midwest, this creamery has been making sweet memories for over 95 years. With a variety of flavors, there is bound to be one that is what you love. We pick up our Hudsonville Ice Cream at Schnucks, but you can use their Scoop Locator to find it at a retailer near you. Now let’s get to these cookies!
Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
Now, the great thing about these cookies is that you can make them ahead, assemble and keep them in the freezer. The sky is the limit with ice cream flavors. Today I used Seaside Carmel (my favorite) and for Hattie, I used Blue Moon. Take it a step further and roll the edges in sprinkles for a fun colorful addition.
These have been a go-to cookie in our home for years. If you are feeling adventurous, you could add mixins like chocolate chips or nuts to your cookies. Or even try my M&M Cookie recipe. I’m a bit of a purist and love the classic oatmeal cookie. What makes these cookies so soft and chewy is brown sugar. It just makes these cookies sing.
To make my cookies look uniform for sandwiches, I like to use an ice cream scoop to portion my cookies out to bake. These do tend to spread a bit, so make sure you put about 9 on a baking sheet. Bake from 13-16 minutes to where the edges start to look a little brown. Let these cool completely before assembling your ice cream sandwiches.
These chewy oatmeal cookies are the perfect hug for Hudsonville Ice Cream.
