Cinnamon Vanilla Ice Cream

  • 1 cup whole milk,, well chilled
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 cups heavy cream,, well chilled
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Place the Snickerdoodles in the freezer and freeze for at least 1 hour.
  • When ready to assemble the sandwiches, leave the ice cream (whether homemade or store bought) out of the freezer for a few minutes to soften slightly.
  • Place a small scoop of ice cream on one cookie then sandwich another cookie on top.
  • You can wrap each cookie in waxed paper and place in freezer or just place the ice cream sandwiches in a pan, cover and freeze for at least 4 hours or up to 3 days.

Cinnamon Vanilla Ice Cream

  • In a small bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  • In the bowl of your electric mixer, combine the milk and the sugar/cinnamon mixture, and mix on low speed, about 1-2 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Stir in the heavy cream, vanilla and salt.
  • Pour the mixture into the bowl of your ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer's instructions until thickened. This should take 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until hard.

To make the ice cream without an ice cream machine

  • Before starting the cream mixture, put an empty 9x9 metal pan into the freezer. Freeze for at least 30 minutes. (If you forget to do this, just put the bowl with the cream mixture into the refrigerator while you chill the pan.) 
  • Once the pan is frozen pour the cream mixture into the pan and carefully place in the freezer.
  • After 20 minutes, stir the mixture and be sure to get all the edges mixed into the middle.
  • Return the pan to the freezer for 30 minutes then stir again. 
  • Continue stirring every 30 minutes until you have a frozen creamy mixture.
  • Proceed with putting the ice cream between the cookies. Then freeze for at least 4 hours or up to 3 days.
  • Enjoy!


Gr8 Do Ahead Tips:
  • The cookies can be made up to a month ahead of time. Just keep them frozen in a tightly sealed container.
  • The ice cream can (and should) be made a day or two ahead of time. 
  • Once the ice cream sandwiches are assembled, freeze for at least 4 hours.
