Bantha Blue Butter Sandwich Cookies - Star Wars: Galactic Baking Cookbook - GEEK EATS Recipe
1 quart vanilla or birthday cake–flavored ice cream
Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with a hand mixer until softened. Gradually beat in sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla, and food coloring. Gradually add flour mixture and beat until combined.
Line two large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Place rounded tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or just until done in center and edges are barely browned. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely. When cooled, chill cookies in the freezer for about 30 minutes before filling.
Place sprinkles in a shallow bowl and put in freezer to chill. Allow ice cream to soften at room temperature for 10 minutes before filling cookies.
To fill cookies, place a small scoop of ice cream on bottom side of a chilled cookie. Top with another cookie. Press together until ice cream is squished to edges of cookies. Quickly roll edges in chilled sprinkles and place cookie sandwich in a container in the freezer. Repeat with remaining cookies, ice cream, and sprinkles.
