Soooo something very strange happened last night. Donald Trump is now the president of the United States of America?? I spent the night very confused as I watched it come closer and closer to a reality. And what do I do when I'm nervous...I eat. Luckily for me, I had these Lavender Toffee Ice Cream Sandwiches on hand.
I'm not going to tell you how many I actually ate, because that would be embarrassing. But, I am going to spare your my opinions about the future of the country, and talk about these Ice Cream Sandwiches instead. To be honest, I understand them much more than what happened last night.
I discovered my love for lavender when I created this Honey Lavender Cheesecake. The floral flavor was not super overpowering like I find most rose flavored items to be. Instead, it was just a subtle and refreshing taste. As I was shoveling the cheesecake in my face, I thought "This would be a great ice cream flavor!"
It turns out, I was right. Then, to take t one step further (because I am an overachiever) I decided to turn it into an Ice Cream Sandwich. The subtle lavender flavor pairs extremely well with the soft and crunchy oatmeal toffee cookie. It's basically heaven in your mouth. I also have first hand experience that these are so good, they will allow you to forget all the troubles going on in your life. Here's to hoping we get through the next four years alive...

for the cookies:
*Makes about 9 sandwiches
I dont have stand mixer, could a vitamix or a blender be used instead?
Hi Christin! For the cookies, I would use the vitamix/blender just to blend the butter + sugars together. Once that is done, take it out and add everything else by hand (fold in with a spatula). For the ice cream, you can totally make the whipped cream in a vitamix/blender. Let me know if you have any more questions!
