Elise and I love to bake together. Once a year, my son Thomas, my daughter-in-law Supa, and granddaughter Elise come to visit us in Virginia, and I go visit them in Texas This year,on their visit from Texas, Elise and I decided to make Ice Cream Sandwiches for the Newtown Ice Cream Social. This was exciting for both of us! We made the ice cream the day before. The Sandwich Brownie needs to be made early in the day to allow for lots of assembly and freeze time. This is not a fast recipe!! The recipe has many sources. This was inspired by the Ice Cream Sandwich molds from Williams Sonoma, my standard vanilla ice cream, an adaptation of their recipe for brownies, and our experience. I put it all together to make something we could more easily follow. This is what grandmothers and their grandchildren were meant to do... cook and bake together, sharing the fun and love.
