Mini Snickerdoodle Sandwiches

This month I had the privilege of hosting the What's Baking Challenge and I chose for all the participants to bake mini or bite-sizes treats. I don't know if you love all things cute and petite, but I do! A mini cupcake or mini donut is just so adorable as well as tasty! So for April's What's Baking challenge, I decided to make mini cookie sandwiches. And my husband was craving snickerdoodles terribly so that was decided.

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1½ cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2¾ cups flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 quart ice cream, vanilla or caramel
lollipop sticks

1. Beat softened butter and sugar on medium speed until fluffy.

2. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating after each one.

3. Add in vanilla and beat for a moment to incorporate.

4. Mix flour, cream of tartar, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl. Slowly add the dry flour mixture to your batter continually beating.

5. Combine cinnamon and sugar in small bowl or cup.

6. Pinch very small dime sized balls of dough and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture until fully covered.

7. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes on 350 degrees.

8. Let cookies completely cool on drying racks. Take out the ice cream to soften while cookie cool.

9. Then take softened ice cream and spread onto one cookie and press second cookie on top of ice cream. Or if you'd like to have cookie sandwiches on a stick, insert a lollipop stick into the ice cream before placing the second cookie. You will want to keep these in the freezer until time to eat!
