Hi Everyone! I’m Liz from Sunny Bug and I’m so excited to be a part of Kathia’s Halloween series because this time of year means a lot of baking!
Sunny Bug is a little bit of Sweets, Love & Craftiness…and that’s EXACTLY what I chat about. I’m a wife to an awesome husband & mom to two girly girls. I LOVE to bake & decorate cupcakes, cookies & and bite-size brownie desserts. Lately, I’ve been making tons Cake Pops!
I've decided that Halloween isn't just for the kids...so here's a little grown-up Halloween dessert - and I’m combining two of my favorite things: PUMPKIN and ICE CREAM!

Pumpkin Spiced Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ingredients…
• 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup butter, softened
• 1 1/2 cups white sugar
• 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
• 1 egg
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• Vanilla ice cream – your choice
• Sprinkles or syrup…or any other favorite edible Halloween decorations

How to make it…
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
• Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt; set aside.
• In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar.
• Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy.
• Mix in dry ingredients.
• Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls
• Bake for 15 minutes
• Allow cookies to cool completely
Get scooping…
• TIP: Let ice cream soften some so it’s easier to scoop.
• Use an ice cream scooper to ensure your sandwiches are the same size.
• Place one scoop of ice cream on bottom of one cookie and take the second cookie and gently press sandwich together.
• Transfer sandwiches on cookie sheet and place in your freezer until ready to serve.
• Prior to serving, rolls edges in sprinkles or drizzle with your favorite warm syrup {I used caramel!}.
Enjoy!
