Once dough has set, remove from the fridge and make 1-2’ cookies placing them 2’ apart. on a greased baking sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes and let them cool completely.
Remove the ice cream and set aside the 2 cups needed for your ice cream sandwiches. Let it soften at room temperature a bit to make mixing the food coloring easier.
Add 2-3 drops of the food coloring of your choice to the ice cream and mix well.
Place the ice cream back into the freezer to harden.
Once the cookies are cool and the ice cream has hardened place a scoop onto the cookie and smush another cookie on top.
