We’re nearly two months into what is unofficially declared pumpkin season, and I’ve heard a few people mention that they are already over pumpkin. I am not one of those people. For one thing, I’m never fully over pumpkin, no matter the time of year. For another, my baking the past few months was so sporadic that I think the only other pumpkin thing I have made so far this year is the lightened up pumpkin cream cheese muffins. This needed to change. As life after studying slowly returned, these ice cream sandwiches were one of the first ideas I eked out of my tired brain.
Like pumpkin, ice cream sandwiches may be a seasonal treat to some, but…is there really ever a wrong time for ice cream sandwiches? Didn’t think so. I’ll sit next to the fireplace and eat one if I need to. In fact, that sounds pretty fantastic to me. We loved the pairing of these soft pumpkin oatmeal cookies with the creamy salted caramel ice cream. Just looking at them now, I’m glad we still have a few in our freezer, as should you. Happy weekend everyone!
