“It’s hard to be sad when you’re eating a cookie!”
And that quote couldn’t be truer! But if you love cookies, could you imagine how your dog feels about cookies?! That’s why we created Holiday Cookie Mix for Dogs, which is a shortbread cookie mix formulated for your dog’s belly. And as I was trying to figure out some really fun ideas how to incorporate a cookie treat for your dog into the hot summer months, it hit me! Ice Cream COOKIE sandwiches. I mean, you and I love ice cream sandwiches in the summer (OK, literally all year round!) and I bet I could make a fun and easy treat for my dog with cookies and ice cream.
So, let’s get started on how to make this really fun Cookie “Ice Creamwich” recipe for your dog. It really is simple and would be so fun to make with the whole family for your four-legged best friend. Because I loved this idea so much, I also created a COOKIE ice cream bowl for your dog. Genius, I know ??
So, let’s begin and find out what you’ll need to start:
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup of hot tap water
- 1 TBSP of oil
A FREE bone-shaped cookie-cuter is included in the bag!
- 2/3 cup of warm tap water
- Baking Sheet
- Cooling Rack
- Optional Toppings for the Ice Cream
Make the ice cream first! Choose your pups favorite ice cream flavor (Peanut Butter, Maple Bacon, Vanilla, Carob, Blueberry, Pumpkin
or Candy Cane – PURCHASE HERE!) and add 2/3 cup of warm tap water to the powdered mix in the cup and stir well until all of the lumps are gone. Replace the lip and place the cup in the freezer for at least 5 hours.
Once your ice cream mix begins to harden, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix the Holiday Cookie Mix, egg, water and oil together. Knead with your hands if necessary, until the mix turns into dough. With a rolling pin or your palms, roll out the dough and cut out your desired number of cookie shapes. ***Please note, the Holiday Cookie Mix does not rise when in the oven. It is recommended to create thin cookie shapes to fit ice cream in between.
Once your cookie shapes are cut out and placed on a cookie sheet, insert into the over for about 7 minutes or until your cookies turn golden brown.
As a fun option mentioned above, take the left-over dough and turn a cupcake pan over. Spray the bottom of the cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray and mold the dough over the pan, creating a “bowl” shape. Pop the pan in the oven for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
Once the cookie shapes and cookie bowls have cooled and your ice cream has hardened, it’s time to create fun ice cream sandwiches and ice cream bowls for your DOG!
Scoop out the ice cream and place between two cookie shapes! I used Smart Scoops Blueberry Ice Cream Mix made with whole goat’s milk!!!
If your pup prefers an ice cream bowl instead, scoop out your dogs desired ice cream flavor into the cookie bowl and serve!
