To assemble ice cream sandwiches:
When cookies have completely cooled, remove ice cream from freezer and allow to sit out for a few minutes to soften slightly. Flip one of the cookies upside down and place a big spoonful of ice cream on the cookie. Press the ice cream down a little with the spoon. Place a second cookie on top of the ice cream and press together so that ice cream reaches edges.
Sprinkle your decoration of choice around the edges of the ice cream, pressing lightly with your fingers to make it stick if necessary. Quickly wrap the ice cream cookie in plastic wrap and place in freezer.
Repeat with remaining cookies and ice cream.
