These delicious eggnog ice-cream sandwiches are a fun and unexpected treat during the Christmas holiday season. Make a bunch to have on hand or throw them together in a jiffy when in need of dessert in a hurry.

Start with some thin store-bought gingerbread cookies

and some slightly softened eggnog ice-cream.

Dollop ice-cream onto bottom cookie and spread around, to cover.

Press down top cookie atop ice-cream.  Smooth around edges and place in the freezer to harden.

Serve when hardened or wrap individually, with plastic wrap and serve as needed.  The cookies will soften just like a traditional ice-cream sandwich if stored in the freezer overnight.

The combination of gingerbread and eggnog is delicious, but any flavor of your choosing would work wonderfully.  It’s your treat, so you decide!

Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
