    ellie_'s Note:

    These are wonderful year round, but I them best in the colder months when the yearning for an ice cream sandwich hits. Although a bit time consuming, these can be made ahead and stored in the freezer (freezing time not included in prep/cooking time (overnight or at least 4 hours)).

      Unfortunately, we got the same results as a previous reviewer for the cookies. The dough tasted really good before refridgeration. Unfortunately, they really spread out a lot during baking thus becoming very hard and brittle when cooled. We used Homemade Ice a Bag! for the ice cream and it was outstanding with the ginger, but there was no way we could put ice cream between them as the cookies are way too crunchy. Sorry this didn't work out for us, but it did get it's stars for flavor

      The ginger and the ice cream mix is worth 5 stars! It tasted so yummy! The cookie sandwiches on the other hand, were too hard to bite into easily. They smelled good and the dough tasted good. Maybe they cooked too long. That's why I'm only leaving a comment. This might work out well for somebody else. I will mix the candied ginger with ice cream again! Thanks ellie!
