Flavor of the Month: Lemon Ice Cream Sandwiches with Raspberry Swirl

Sunday, August 16, 2009


The minute I  saw the August issue of Gourmet Magazine, I knew what this month’s Flavor of the Month would be.  On the cover was a gorgeous photo of the most luscious ice cream sandwiches I’d ever laid eyes on!   They were called Lemon Ice Cream Sandwiches with Blueberry Swirl.  The chewy lemon-scented blondie cookies filled with a lemon-infused vanilla ice cream, streaked with a fresh berry compote were irresistible to me.  Sheer perfection!

There is something magical about an ice cream sandwich that can reduce even the biggest stuffed shirt into a delighted, giggling  child.   Maybe it’s because you have to eat them with your hands.  It’s kind of hard to look very dignified with ice cream dribbling down your chin and damp cookie bits stuck to your fingers.  For some, it may bring back warm, fuzzy memories of the carefree days of youth.  Perhaps both.  Whatever the reason, ice cream sandwiches are a quintessential and universally loved summertime treat.  read more >>
