Here are some tips for a cool party this summer: Create a topping bar! While the ice cream will be the main attraction, make sure to stock up on some classic toppings, in addition to some trendy ones. Sprinkles and cherriesare great, but why not try to throw in some hot and spicy nuts, crushed waffle cones, and fruity cereal for a twist.

  - To make these delicious Snickerdoodle Cookies, you'll need to melt the butter in a microwave in 20-second intervals. Allow to cool completely, then whisk in the eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugars, flour, shortening, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just incorporated. 

- You'll need to be sure to refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Scoop the dough using a ¼ cup ice cream scoop or cup measurer. Flatten with the palm of your hand, then coat the cookie in cinnamon-sugar.Bake for 7-8 minutes on a greased baking sheet. Allow to cool completely.

- To assemble ice cream cookie sandwiches: Place baking sheet in freezer. Bring ice cream out of freezer to soften for 2 minutes. Be sure that you prepare any toppings by placing them in shallow bowls. 

- Working quickly: Lay one cookie top side down on a baking sheet. Using 1/3 cup ice cream scoop, scoop ice cream onto the cookie. Top with second cookie, pushing down lightly until the ice cream reaches the edges. Roll in desired toppings. Place on baking sheet in the freezer. Repeat. Serve immediately, or wrap individually in plastic wrap for longer-term storage.*Note: Optional ingredients are not included in the nutrition analysis
