Sweet and summery Lemon Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches are a fun treat! Lemon curd ice cream sandwiched between two delicious lemon cookies!
At a recent family gathering, my sister offered to bring dessert. She had been checking out this recipe, and wanted to try it on us. She made it and offered me the recipe (plus the chance to photograph her delicious dessert) for our blog, and of course I couldn’t resist!
These lemon cookie ice cream sandwiches were so delicious! The lemon cookies would have been a treat by themselves. And I was surprisingly fond of the lemon ice cream as well. But put them together, and it was absolutely delicious!
- 1 C butter
- 1 1/2 C sugar
- 4 Tbsp finely shredded lemon peel, divided
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 C flour
- 1 3/4 qt vanilla ice cream
- 1 C lemon curd
Preheat oven to 350º and line a 9x9 pan with tin foil.
In a large bowl, beat butter for 30 seconds on medium using an electric mixer. Add sugar, 2 Tbsp. lemon peel, soda, cream of tartar and salt. Beat until mixed well. Beat in eggs and vanila. Beat in flour until you can't add anymore with the electric mixer. Stir the rest in by hand.
Wet fingers, and press half of mixture into the pan. Bake 12 minutes. Immediately remove from pan using the foil, and cool on a wire rack. Repeat with the other half of the mixture.
Soften ice cream. Stir lemon curd and 2 Tbsp. lemon peel into the ice cream.
Line 9x9 pan with saran wrap. Place one lemon cookie square in the pan. Spread ice cream over the cookie and top with the other cookie.
Cover and freeze for 4 hours. While frozen, cut into squares.
