Dreamcicle Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Creamy dreamcicle cookies with white chocolate chips and a hint of delicious orange.

Remember how last week was really crazy and stressful because I had a project due, a midterm, we bought a house and moved in, and my brother moved out of state?

And how the worst thing imaginable happened?

Pierre broke down.

Pierre is my camera. My beloved canon 7D. He broke.

Seriously, my worst nightmare.

There I was, about to take a shot from the perfect angle of some delicious chilled oreo fudge (oh my gosh so good) and bam. Pierre totally goes dark, nothing will work, and I’m in a total panic.

I tried everything in the book. (And everything on the web…) Nothing fixed him. I even replaced his “brain” battery.

Still nothing.

I must’ve spent 3 hours trying to revive him.

But dead he stayed.

So I spent the next hour making lengthy and frustrating phone calls all over the country to Canon help technicians trying to get the matter resolved.

In the end they said I’d need to ship Pierre to their manufacturing site out of state.

In total desperation and in the hopes that I might get him fixed quicker, I took him to a shop in downtown Salt Lake City that came highly recommended.

I “checked” him in to their care and spent a really miserable weekend gorging myself on some incredible desserts that need to be photographed and shared with the world.

But alas they are gone. And unphotographed. So I must make them again. (Aw shucks.)

I am praying to heaven that they can fix Pierre PRONTO. Because quite honestly I’m running out of photographed recipes to post!!

Thankfully, these Dreamcicle Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches were already in my repertoire. Phew!

They truly are so dreamy. The cookies are soft and chewy with loads of white chocolate morsels so you’re sure to get some in every bite. They are amazingly delicious all by their lonesome really. But paired with the vanilla bean ice cream… ah! Heaven in my mouth.

And so perfect for summer. I insist that you make a batch of these, kick off your sandals, and lay on a blanket on the grass enjoying these dreamy little babies. Go on, do it for heaven’s sake! You’ll be sure to thank me later.

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup sweet cream butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon grapefruit zest
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips or yogurt chips


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a larger bowl mix together butter, sugar, and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add in egg, vanilla, and orange juice. Slowly mix in dry ingredients until just combined. Add zest. 
  • Fold in chocolate chips and mix evenly. Use tablespoon to drop rounded mounds of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool 2-3 minutes before removing from sheet. Place on wax paper or wire rack to cool completely. 
  • To assemble sandwiches, scoop 2-3 tablespoons of vanilla bean ice cream onto the bottom side of one cookie. Sandwich with a second cookie and gently press cookies together. Repeat with remaining cookies. Chill in freezer 1-2 hours before serving.

Godspeed, Pierre. Godspeed. These are bonkers! I made some cookies last week with the hopes of turning them into ice cream sandwiches….then the hubs fund them. No ice cream sandwiches, sadly. I’ll have to try these, my word! Stopping by and pinning from Anyonita’s party.

    Thanks for your thoughts on Pierre’s behalf, he is sorely missed this week! Ha ha, about half of these cookies ended up mysteriously missing from the batch before they got to the “assembly” stage. What can I say, they were dang delicious!! Definitely give these a shot, they are soooo yummy! Thanks for stopping by and commenting Kim!!
