The only thing better than a cookie is two cookies. To top that, you really need to get ice cream involved. When you sandwich ice cream between two cookies, you end up with one seriously good dessert.

The ice cream sandwich is THE example for all desserts. It is the harmonious unity of two great treats. The mere sight of one is enough to make us feel like giddy children on summer vacation. Some of us love them so much, we use them as smart phone covers. (Don't judge.)

While we will always hold a special place in our hearts for the classic store-bought ice cream sandwich -- the chocolate and vanilla kind that always stuck to our fingers -- there's so much more this dessert has to offer in terms of great flavor pairings, like ginger snap cookies with pumpkin salted caramel ice cream. Here are 25 gorgeous ice cream sandwich recipes to get you excited for summer. We guarantee you're going to want every single one.
