Gotta Have It: Pumpkin and Gingersnap Ice Cream Sandwiches

October 16, 2013

Pumpkin and gingersnap ice cream sandwiches from The Suburban Soapbox are a fall inspired treat.  Soft and chewy gingersnap cookies are paired with a spicy homemade pumpkin ice cream for a dynamite dessert.  You will need an ice cream maker for this recipe which you can pick up for a relatively inexpensive price wherever kitchen appliances are sold.  I suggest making a double batch of ice cream to enjoy throughout the season.
