snickerdoodle coconut ice cream sandwiches

it was getting chilly and i was loving it. 

then it got hot again. like people are putting on bikinis and sunblock hot. 
92 degrees. 

no. it's fall. i want cold and crisp and spice. 


fine weather. i'll play along for now. i'll make ice cream sandwiches. 

with cinnamony snickerdoodles and coconut ice cream. 

oh goodness. these can turn a day around in a split second. 

the ice cream was refreshment heaven. i didn't make it. i'm wearing under-the-sea themed socks...clearly i'm not trying to impress anyone today. 

from smitten kitchen via martha stewart

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
16 tbsp (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 tbsp ground cinnamon
2 large eggs

preheat oven to 400. line baking sheets with parchment. sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine butter and 1 1/2 cups of sugar. beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. scrape down the sides of the bowl. add eggs, and beat to combine. add dry ingredients and beat to combine. chill the dough for at least an hour before scooping it. 
once the dough has chilled, in a small bowl, combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. scoop into tablespoon sized balls and roll in cinnamon sugar. place about 2 inches apart on baking sheets. bake until they are set in the center and begin to crack, about 10 minutes. 

Ice Cream Sandwiches:
Ice cream of your choosing. (i used McConnell's coconut ice cream and 
it was phenomenal. i made a few with coffee ice cream. you can't go wrong.)
smash together.
