Patriotic Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

How perfect are these Patriotic Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches for Memorial Day and July 4th? Red, white and blue never tasted so good!

Patriotic Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

These are made with shortbread cookies (rather than sugar cookies), Breyer’s ice cream, and some super yummy M&M’s. They are sure to be a huge hit with family and friends (especially the kiddies)! And making them couldn’t be any easier.

I used the Red White & Blue M&M’s found in the candy aisle at the grocery store, and made the shortbread cookies from scratch. The kids loved helping with these, especially since they have M&M’s and sprinkles! Okay, well, and cookies, and ice cream!

These are super easy to make – all you need for the cookies are butter, powdered sugar, and flour – yup, that’s all!
