Ice Cream Sandwiches

  • Yield Variable depending on size of sandwiches made servings

Let ice cream soften a bit before spreading over cakes. This is also a good time to add some mix-ins to your ice cream for a real treat.


1 package (2-layer) devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Your favorite flavor ice cream
Additional mix-ins for ice cream (optional)


  1. Combine half the cake mix, the shortening, butter and egg in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Stir in the remaining cake mix.
  2. Roll the dough 1/4-inch thick on a floured surface. Cut as desired and arrange on a baking pan.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Poke holes in the baked cakes with a fork while still warm. Let stand until cool.
  4. Spread ice cream over half the cakes. Top with the remaining cakes. Freeze, covered, until firm.
