Summer Of Sandwiches: Coconut Macaroon & Creme Brulee

Sep 20 2007 - 1:13pm



Sadly, the end of summer is this weekend. With its finish comes the conclusion of our 14 week series on ice cream sandwiches [1]. For my last batch of sandwiches, I focused on the perfect pairing of cookie and ice cream flavors. I was a little disappointed in the overpowering peanut butter taste [2] of my last ice cream sandwiches, so I found myself spending quite some time debating in the grocery store. First I picked out the chewy perfectly sized coconut macaroons. Next, after much time staring into the freezers, I decided on the custardy creme brulee ice cream.

Eureka! The pairing was sheer sweetness! To see how I made this super easy and delicious dessert,



Coconut Macaroon & Creme Brulee Ice Cream Sandwiches
Created by PartySugar

8 small coconut macaroons
1/2-1 cup Creme Brulee ice cream (suggested: Ben & Jerry's)

  1. Place cookies in pairs on a plate or cookie sheet top side down.
  2. Top one cookie with a heaping tablespoon of ice cream. Place its pair on top of the ice cream and press down gently.
  3. Quickly put the sandwiches in the freezer to prevent melting. Freeze for an hour or until firm. Enjoy!

Makes 8 sandwiches.
