Excerpts-
  • Introduction


    Cool, creamy vanilla ice cream surrounded by crunchy, buttery oatmeal cookies. Chewy chocolaty brownies encasing refreshing mint--chocolate chip ice cream, indulgently dipped in slightly bitter chocolate. Ice cream sandwiches are among the sweetest memories of my childhood . . . just as much a part of summers growing up in California as running through the garden sprinklers in our swimsuits.

    Ice cream sandwiches are traditionally made by sandwiching ice cream between two baked cookies or wafers. Combining the crunchy, chewy cookies with creamy, cold ice cream somehow more than doubles the resulting pleasure.

    No wonder ice cream sandwiches have been a favorite treat for children
    and adults alike in the United States for generations. They made their debut in New York City in the 1890s and quickly caught on across the country with one particular version being honored as the Official Food of San Francisco. They eventually found their way to places as diverse as Australia, Scotland, and Singapore, where they are usually made by slipping a scoop of ice cream between two layers of rainbow-colored bread!

    I launched my Buttercup Cake Shop in London in 2006. As we expanded into a premier cupcake company with locations in Kent and London (including the 2012 Olympics site), we started to get quite a few inquiries about whether we also sold ice cream. This got me thinking: what goes better with cake than ice cream? We began offering cupcakes blended with vanilla ice cream and called it a cupshake, ice cream on top of cupcakes (cupcake sundaes), and my childhood favorite, ice cream sandwiches.

    Ice cream sandwiches made their UK debut at Buttercup in spring 2011 and proved instantly popular. We bake the cookies fresh every day and assemble the sandwiches to order on the spot, so they are soft and ready to enjoy immediately. Although initially I envisioned them being mostly popular with children, it turns out I wasn't the only adult keen to indulge! I especially get a kick out of watching stylish men in their twenties and thirties tuck in unreservedly. Today, ice cream sandwiches have become hotter than ever! They are the latest comfort food to receive gourmet status at bakeries and gelato shops in New York City, where endless combinations of ice cream and "cookie" are available.

    In this book you will discover easy, step-by-step instructions on how to prepare, assemble, and decorate delicious and novel sandwiches. Rose Meringues (page 41) are ideal for a dinner party, and White Chocolate Chip Teddies (page 51) will be a hit at any child's birthday. In addition, try the special treats for seasonal celebrations, such as Graveyard Coffins (page 77) for Halloween and Flocked Trees (page 68) for Christmas. And when nothing but the most indulgent treat will suffice, try the Caramel Snickerdoodle-doos (page 12), an irresistible combination of vanilla, caramel, and cinnamon, or Aloha Sandwiches (page 16), a marriage of chocolate, toasted coconut, and macadamia nut that will transport you to paradise!

    Whatever the occasion, you'll find that making ice cream sandwiches is straightforward. It's an activity that can be shared with children, and with some adult help, cutting and filling the sandwiches is not only easy but also boosts their confidence in the kitchen.

    For ease of use, the recipes are divided into three sections: several chapters of sandwiches (with assembly and decoration ideas), the cookie recipes, and the main ice cream recipes. I have included recipes for ice cream you can make at home, including some that don't require an ice cream maker and still result in a creamy, smooth texture. The division of...
