Ice Cream Sandwich - Valentine's Day Special

Photobucket

Wish you all a very happy Valentine's day!!

The best feelings on earth are to love and to be loved.

This is my first valentine's day after I found my love and is eventually a special day for both of us. We have been competing in expressing to each other in different ways today and one of the ways I won his heart is through his tummy :)

Ice cream sandwich was a long time dream for me. I wasnt sure how it would work out and was not even sure if it will be possible to bite comfortably.

But today was the day to experiment since my hubby loves ice creams as well as cookies. I couldnt think of anything better to steal his heart :)

It worked out so well. The texture and look was stunning and surprisingly the cookies dint turn soft in the fridge and was super comfortable to bite along with the ice cream and eat :)

Bingo Success!!

Now wrap the cookie dough in a cling film and refrigerate for 10 mins.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Remove the dough from refrigerator. Sprinkle some All purpose flour on your working surface and roll out the dough into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Use your cookie cutters to cut out shapes.

Place the cut out cookies on a baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes at 180°C.

Let the cookies cool on wire rack for a while and store in air tight container.

Assembling the Ice cream sandwich:

Bake the cookies.

Place one cookie under side facing up on a plate.

Cut a small slice of ice cream of your choice and quickly cut the ice cream using your cookie cutter and place it on top of the cookie and sandwich another cookie on top and put it in the freezer for it to firm up.

Serve chill just out of the freezer :)

I am big fan of ice cream cookies. Remember we used to get them in Kwality brands. Have never attempted to make them at home because my husband doesn't like cookies. May be I should try it once my son is old enough to enjoy them. Hope you had fantabulous Vday and lots of surprises fell your way.

Deepti said...

Hi,
Tried these and my daughter loved it.Thanks.It was somewhat difficult to lift it and place it on the baking tray.Btw which blender do you use to whip up the butter or to fold in the flour?
