Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Sandwiches #SundaySupper

Cool off this summer with homemade ice cream sandwiches: homemade strawberry cheesecake ice cream, sandwiched between two thin brownie sheets.

After one of the snowiest winters EVER, we are now in one of the hottest summers ever. We don't usually get an official heat wave until later in the summer, but we already had one in June.

I don't mind the heat. I love not having to wear a jacket, I love wearing skirts and dresses. I love flip flops and sandals. I love the beach. I love feeling warmth on my skin. It's the humidity I can't stand.

When the heat cranks up, I love a cold, sweet treat to cool myself down. This #SundaySupper is all about keeping cool.

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Sandwiches #SundaySupper

I've made many a homemade ice cream recipe before, but this is my first attempt at homemade ice cream sandwiches. It was messy, but fun!

Ice cream sandwiches always remind me of my childhood. We had a membership at the local YMCA, and we'd spend nearly every day swimming at the pool. Once every two hours, they'd kick all the kids out of the pool for "adult swim," and the kids would swarm the snack stand. I'd always get an ice cream sandwich.

Making these sandwiches at home means you can fill them with whatever ice cream flavor you like. If you don't have an ice-cream maker, just make the brownie sandwich halves, and substitute a quart of your favorite store-bought ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Sandwiches

Yield: 8


For the ice cream

  • 12 oz strawberries, hulled
  • 8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped shortbread cookies or graham cracker sheets

For the brownies

  • 1 tbnsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 12 tbsp unsalted butter, 1 ½ sticks
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 2 ¼ oz
  • 1 ½ cups sugar, 10 ½ oz
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, 6 ⅜ oz
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Make the ice cream base: In a food processor, puree the strawberries, cream cheese, sugar, whole milk, lemon juice, and salt. Stir in the heavy cream, then pour the mixture in a bowl. Cover, and chill for at least four hours, or overnight.
  2. Make the brownie sheet: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x13 baking pan with foil, letting two inches of foil hang over the pan's edges. Grease lightly with 1 tbsp softened butter.
  3. Place the 1 ½ sticks of butter in a medium saucepan and set over medium heat until the butter is just melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the cooca powder, whisking until all the lumps are gone. Stir in the sugar. Let the mixture cool slightly.
  4. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla, then stir in the flour and salt. Scrape the mixture into the prepare pan and use an offset spatula to smooth the batter into an even layer. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. Freeze the ice cream base in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions. During the last 2 minutes of churning, gradually add in the crumbs.
  6. Cut the cooled brownie sheet in half lengthwise, to create two sheets, 4 ½ x 12 inches. Use an offset spatula to spread the ice cream on one of the brownie sheets. Place the second brownie half on top, and press down gently. Wrap the log tightly in foil, and freeze until hardened, at least 4 hours. Cut into 8 sandwiches, 4 ½ x 1 ½ inches. Wrap each sandwich in plastic wrap and freeze until ready to eat.
