Tips for Creating the Perfect Sasquatch Sandwich

The key to a perfect ice cream sammie, as counter-intuitive as it may seem, is to go light on the ice cream. Your ice cream slice should be about as thick as the cookie for a nice balanced bite. By going light on the ice cream, you won't drip and drop as much when you take a big bite.

It's also important that you don't overbake your cookie, so it's soft and chewy when you make your ice cream sammie recipe. Turn off the oven five minutes before the recommended cooking time and let the residual heat finish baking your cookie to reduce the risk of making them too crunchy.

If you're heading out on an adventure, make a batch of your ice cream sammies the night before. Assemble them on a parchment-lined tray and pop them in the freezer overnight. Then, transfer them to our double wall vacuum insulated food and coffee canister the morning of your adventure.
