GLUTEN FREE SEMI-HOMEMADE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES

Here are two takes on gluten-free ice cream sandwiches that in the words of the Food Channel, are semi-homemade. All that's required are ice cream and cookies. But given we're talking about gluten free cookies, the right choices make for success or failure.
This sandwich is made with Food Should Taste Good non-GMO and gluten free chocolate tortilla chips. If you like sweetness with an undertone of salt, this is the bite-sized (about 1.5x2 inch) ice cream sandwich for you! Next time I'll try to make them in advance and freeze them so they're easier to handle (but given their size, this isn't a necessity).


These egg-free, gluten-free cookies are by Jo-sef, and are called Chocolate Graham Crackers, though seem more of a chocolate shortbread. I've Breyer's vanilla or both sandwiches, and here, especially, is where a good vanilla as a foil for all this chocolate taste really shines. These thicker cookies are harder to eat than the chips, so a bowl might be needed as a back-up.

Both sandwiches are good, quick end-of-summer snacks!

These look so perfect for a quick dessert! Did you just order the JoSef crackers online or have you found them at a store? I've never seen them before. Great job!

the josef crackers are available in nyc at fairway, and possibly elsewhere, too, but also available online: http://www.josefsglutenfree.com. i'm not familiar with their whole line, but if the other products are as good as these cookies--wow!
