New and Improved Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe

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.

Fun Dessert Ideas Using Lavender and Toffee

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.

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.

I dont have stand mixer, could a vitamix or a blender be used instead?

Lindsay Nathanson

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!
