For The Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar

For The Maple Icing

  • 1½-2 tablespoon heavy whipping cream or milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • (2) ½ gallons vanilla ice cream


  • Preheat oven to 350° and prepare baking sheet(s) by lining with parchment paper.

For The Cookies

  • Add rolled oats to a chopper or food processer and pulse until oats are various textures, not powder.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, beat butter using a hand mixer. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat until mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs into sugar mixture, beating between each addition. Add vanilla and mix well.
  • Add ½ of the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and beat on low until incorporated. Now add remaining flour mixture and beat until fully incorporated.
  • Using a heaping tablespoon, roll the dough into balls and place on prepared baking sheet(s) two inches apart.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack. Allow cookies to cool completely.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar, cream, and maple syrup. Whisk until sugar is dissolved and ingredients are well combined.
  • Dip tops of cooled cookies into icing and place back onto wire rack to allow icing to set.

Assembling the Ice Cream Sandwiches

  • Cut the sides off of the carton of ice cream and slice the ice cream into ½ inch chunks.
  • Using a circular biscuit/cookie cutter about the size of the cookies, cut ice cream and place each piece between two cookies.
  • Place on a baking sheet and put in the freezer.
  • Once set, wrap each ice cream sandwich in plastic wrap.
  • When ready to serve, unwrap and enjoy.
