Sip & Snack - Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches & Spiked Espresso

Today's post sort of humored me as I really don't ever crave ice cream or ever drink coffee. However, my main squeeze loves both so I thought I would create a special treat just for him! I first remember making snickerdoodles in seventh grade home economics class where we learned the basics of baking along with a slew of other domestic duties that I am sure was meant to stick with me for when I became a Mrs. I unfortunately am not always a successful baker so I thought I would take a short cut and use the most delicious soft cookie ever made. While my husband almost always prefers anything chocolate flavored I thought vanilla would work best with this chewy cinnamon cookie. I added some other favorite ingredients and created a mini ice cream sandwich that is quite memorable and pairs perfectly with a creamy spiked espresso. Check out all the delicious details below!
