Cookie Sandwiches

These cookie sandwiches are a nice dessert treat for hot summer days. I made them fairly large but you could use a teaspoon to drop the batter on the pans and you would end up with cute little cookie sandwiches.

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats, quick cooking
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • Vanilla ice cream, or your choice of flavor
  • Toasted coconut
  1. In a medium size bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until creamy.
  2. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats, and coconut.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture until combined.
  5. Drop by tablespoons on parchment lined pans. Flatten just slightly.
  6. Bake in a 350ยบ oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden in color. These cookies will spread during baking and you will end up with approx 3" cookies.
  7. Once cookies are completely cooled, place a scoop of ice cream on a cookie, spreading it out with a knife, then place a second cookie on top.
  8. Press down slightly so the ice cream is flush with the cookies.
  9. Roll the sides in toasted coconut.
  10. Wrap individually and freeze until firm.
  11. Yield: 18 cookies = 9 sandwich cookies


  1. Betty, Oh yum yum!!! My favorite coconut!! Sure we will have to try making these.

  2. This such a great idea Betty! This would be wonderful for the summer Bible School Children or camp - I must remember this one. Thanks....

  3. Those look delightfully YUMMY! The best of both worlds as cookies and ice cream are my favorite! I'll be making these for sure! Thank you for the recipe!

  4. would these turn out well minus the 1/2 cup cocnut? it sounds yummy,however non of us are fans of coconut. Chocolate chips is what I would use to replace the coconut. Thanks, Linda

    1. I think it would be okay to leave out the coconut and add chocolate chips. Sounds good too.

  5. They sure were yummy! Thanks Mom! :)
