Sweet Summer Treats In 3 Simple Steps

Quick! Pick a pint of your favorite ice cream, gelato, sorbet or dairy-free frozen dessert. Decide on a dozen of your favorite cookies. Now, all you need is a cutting board and a knife to craft this classic summer treat!


  1. Lightly warm your cookies of choice (they’ll harden once stacked with the ice cream). Five to 10 seconds in the microwave will do the trick!
  2. With a sharp knife, slice horizontally and cut the pint of ice cream into four equivalent circles. Make sure that the ice cream is firm, not melting.
  3. Stack the cookies around each slice, remove the paper and enjoy! Not ready to serve your sammies? Wrap them in wax paper and pop into the freezer.

Tip: For smooth slicing, run your knife under warm tap water for 30 seconds.
