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.

How To Make honey lavender ice cream sandwich

  • 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!
