Creamy Blue Bunny vanilla ice cream, layered with fresh raspberries, and sandwiched between two lemony shortbread cookies. Basically the best ice cream sandwich ever!
When I think summer I think cold treats and fresh foods. Combine the two and you get Fresh Berry Shortcake Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. The name is a mouthful, but so is the dessert. A big, delicious, tasty, and oh so yummy mouthful. This is the perfect treat on a warm summer night!
Summer is quickly approaching. I know for many, kids are already out of school, but we aren’t quite there yet, which is good because I need a few more days to make my plans and finish a few things up before my kids are out of school all day.
I love the less strict schedule summer brings, and all the fun! But mostly I just love the sunshine and the cold treats. Especially these Lemon Raspberry Shortbread Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches.
You guys, this ice cream is creamy, delicious, and the perfect compliment to the summery combination of berries and lemons. This dessert just screams summer, and it is super easy to make. Way easier than you might think.
The cookies are quick and easy to whip up, and only take 6 minutes of baking time. Once they cool, you just mix the ice cream and fresh berries together, and use a cookie cutter or biscuit cutter to shape into the same shape as the cookies. Then assemble. And enjoy!
You can even make them ahead of time and store them in your freezer, the shortbread cookies are soft enough you won’t break your teeth biting into them, at least we didn’t! (This is in no way a guarantee)
Basically, whatever you do, make sure you make them! Because they are awesome, and you might find yourself eating one or two (or more) because they taste like summer, and feel so light and delicious you may not be able to help yourself!

Trust me, the ice cream is creamy and delicious, but if you want to try before you buy, you can because there is a Blue Bunny demo featuring Blue Bunny Premium Vanilla sandwiches and Wet Ones at supporting Walmart locations between June 4-7th! Go try it out.
I got to attend a demo at Walmart for the Vanilla ice cream and Fresh Berries, and see first hand what a great combo they are! And of course I bought both the ice cream and the berries so I could make these, clearly I highly recommend doing the same!
