Pour back into sauce pan and heat over low heat until the custard thickens but does not boil. Remove from heat and strain; chill. Pour into ice cream maker and follow manufacturer instructions.

To make sandwich: Let ice cream soften slightly, then place a small scoop on flat side of cookie, top with another cookie and press gently. If desired, roll the sides of the sandwiches through rainbow or chocolate sprinkles to coat ice cream. Freeze on a baking sheet for 1 hour; wrap each sandwich in plastic. They will keep in freezer for up to one week.
