Ice Cream Sandwiches

Using my Pizzelle Iron, I made homemade ice cream sandwiches for my three grandchildren.

What is a Pizzelle Iron/Maker?  From stove top irons to electric irons you will find them here.

Ice Cream Sandwiches


1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup brown or white sugar
1 ½ cup shortening
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 tablespoons milk

  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, cream the shortening and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, milk, then the vanilla extract.
  • In a small bowl, stir the cocoa, flour, baking powder, and salt.  Gradually add to the shortening mixture. Beat until well combined.
  • Preheat pizzelle iron. Using a scoop (4 teaspoon size) drop batter into center of pizzelle iron. Close cover and cook between 30-45 seconds.  Remove cookie from the iron, cool on a rack.  Repeat with remaining batter.
