Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Aah, the lazy hot days of summer. Make the time and find ways to just slow down and enjoy the moment. That is the way it should be in the kitchen also. My friend made these and had them in the freezer on hand just so it would be easy to pull out and have a nice treat in a moments notice. There are lots of freezer ideas for dessert to have on hand to avoid last minute preparations which is great for the summer, just check out our recipe index for more ideas, like mud pie, or drumstick cheesecake.....hmmmm. Enjoy the long weekend everyone!
