Howdy, gang!!  How is everyone doing?  I've noticed some new faces lately and want to give you a hearty WELCOME!!  I love seeing all your fabulous recipes and dropping by to visit you all (I know I need to get better about visiting everyone.  It's a work in progress...).

This week I'm sharing some easy ice cream sandwiches (courtesy of Taste of Home).  Right up my alley for a hot summer day.  :-)

Ice Cream Sandwiches

1 package (18-1/4 ounces) chocolate cake mix

1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 gallon ice cream

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, shortening, butter, egg, water and vanilla until well blended. Divide into four equal parts.


Between waxed paper, roll one part into a 10-in. x 6-in. x rectangle. Remove one piece of waxed paper and invert dough onto a ungreased baking sheet. Score the dough into eight pieces, each 3-in. x 2-1/2-in. Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until puffed. Immediately cut along the scored lines and prick holes in each piece with a fork. Cool on wire racks.

Cut ice cream into 16 slices, each 3-in. x 2-1/2-in. x 1-in (the diameter of a square half gallon of ice cream). Place ice cream slice between two chocolate cookies; wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for up to 2 months.

What's cooking in your kitchen?

  20. Nothing better than homemade ice cream sandwiches! I posted an article about harvesting native pennycress seeds and a recipe for using them to flavor Lithuanian skilandis -- a traditional dried sausage.

  21. Those sound DELICIOUS, however, they aren't on my diet. I will hang onto it for later once I can eat yummy food again. :)

    Also, any idea on how I screwed up commenting on everyone's blog? I can't log in anymore it keeps kicking me out, what have I done??
