GLUTEN FREE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES
Summer is ice cream time…actually any time is ice cream time :) These homemade ice cream sandwiches are so much fun to make (get the kids involved!), and they’re great because you can customize them to your liking! Pick the ice cream flavor, and everyone can dip the edges into their favorite treat!
Makes: 8 ice cream sandwiches (2"x4")

WALK ME THROUGH IT...
STEP ONE NEEDS TO BE DONE AT LEAST A COUPLE HOURS IN ADVANCE OF ALL OTHER STEPS (or night before): Line an 8x8 pan with tinfoil and spray it lightly with non-stick spray. Allow a little tinfoil to hang over the edge. This will help you lift out the ice cream when it’s solid.
Fill with ice cream and allow to melt just enough to smooth it out.
After baking, do not leave on hot pan. Carefully lift parchment off and place onto a cutting board or back of large baking sheet (bend cake as little as possible to avoid cracking).
Allow to cool on the counter for 15 minutes or so. Then, place cake (still on the cutting board) into the freezer for another 20 minutes.
When cake is FULLY COLD THROUGHOUT you can assemble ice cream sandwiches! Warning...if the cake is warm AT ALL, your ice cream will melt. It's hard, but wait for the cake to be really cold. Remove cake from freezer. First, trim away any rough edges.
Slice into sixteen 2”x4” pieces. (Feel free to change these measurements if you want larger sandwiches. If you do, don't forget to change the ice cream measurements accordingly).
Slice into eight 2”x4” pieces. Work very quickly to minimize melting.
You should make 3 slices in one direction (to create four pieces), and one slice down the opposite direction (creating 8 pieces).
Place a plate, baking dish, or cookie sheet into the freezer for the completed sandwiches.
