Honey Lavender Ice Cream Sandwich

These cookies are so good, you don't have to have the ice cream to fully enjoy them! I am starting off on my culinary training, so I'm trying to work with tastes I'm not familiar with and this really turned out great! The lavender and honey give just a delightful taste and the chocolate adds just the right type of texture. I personally made my own honey vanilla ice cream, but really it is up to you of what you'd like to use.Any basic ice cream base with 1/4 cup of honey and one vanilla bean works great! This treat reminds me off sitting out on the porch on a sunny spring day.

Serves:

12 Ice cream sandwiches or 24 cookies

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 1/2 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
cornstarch
3/4 tsp
baking soda
.50 tsp
salt
1 1/4 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
lavender, crushed
2 Tbsp
honey
12 Tbsp
butter
1 large
egg
3/4 c
dark chocolate shavings

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2
In a small bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Mix it up really well then set to the side.
3
In another small bowl, combine the sugar and lavender and make sure it is mixed well.
4
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar mix until smooth. Add the egg and stir until light and fluffy. Slowly add flour mixture until everything is just combined.
5
Add the chocolate shavings just a bit at a time and it is best to fold in by hand. Continue doing this until the dough becomes round and the chocolate is mixed well into it.
6
On a parchment lined baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, pinch off dough and roll into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart.
7
Bake for 7-9 minutes, until cookies have spread and are a very light brown *Note I made this in a big kitchen in a culinary school, so you may need to bake longer*
8
Allow to cool then place cookies in freezer until chilled so the ice cream won't melt on contact.
9
I used a round cookie cutter to help me get a close to match to the size of my cookies for the ice cream. You can use ice cream of your choice, but I recommend honey-vanilla flavored. cut out round pieces of ice cream about 1/2 inch thick and sandwich between the cookies. Enjoy!
