Steven Universe Cookie Cat Ice Cream Sandwich

Jake Roper joins Rosanna Pansino  on Nerdy Nummies to make this Steven Universe Ice Cream Sandwich - a soft chocolate cookie recipe stuffed with vanilla and strawberry ice cream!

Yields 1 dozen cookie sandwiches

Things you'll need

  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 4 quarts vanilla ice cream
  • 4 quarts strawberry ice cream


Let's get started!

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter until smooth. Add sugar and mix until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs one at a time and then mix in vanilla and almond extracts. Mix in flour on a low speed.
  5. Shape dough into 2 discs about an inch thick and wrap them in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 to 24 hours.
  6. Roll out dough to ¼ an inch thick. Cut out cat heads and place them on a lined cookie sheet about an inch apart.
  7. Use a small oval cutter to cut eyes out of half of the cookies. Bake for 16 minutes.
  8. Remove the cookies from the oven. Cool for 2 minutes the cookie sheet and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Time to decorate!

  1. Spread strawberry ice cream along a baking sheet to cover 1/4 of the sheet. Use a strip of acetate to hold it in place (PICTURE at 6:54).
  2. Repeat with vanilla ice cream and then continue to alternate the two flavors until there are four layers.
  3. Remove acetate sheets and freeze for a few hours.
  4. Cut cat shapes out of the ice cream strips so that one eye is strawberry and the other is vanilla (PICTURE at 8:43).
  5. Place the ice cream on a cooled cookie and then top it with a cookie that has eye holes.
  6. Tada! This delicious Steven Universe Cookie Cat Ice Cream is ready for a hot summer day!
