Spiced Chai Ice Cream Sandwiches
2 cups whipping cream (chilled)
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
6 tablespoons Trader Joe's Chai Mix (2 scoops or 6 teaspoons)
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 package of store bought ginger snaps (I love the thin Trader Joe's ones)
Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to mix well. Pour into the bowl of an ice cream freezer and prepare according to your specific machine. When the ice cream is done, place in an air tight container and freeze for at least 1 hour. Using a small scoop (mine is a cookie scoop), place a scoop in the center a cookie and the flatten with the second cookie on top. Place them back in an airtight container and freeze until solid. Makes about 20 ice cream sandwiches.
Ice cream is our go-to when it's hot. I have to confess that sometimes ice cream and popcorn is our dinner in the Summer. What's you go-to cool treat when the temperatures rise?
