on the menu: lemon almond coconut ice cream sandwiches

I’ve been having quite the sweet tooth lately. Craving homemade ice cream, cookies, you name it. Since Eric is the baker and sweets maker in the house I had him look for a delicious treat he could make to quench my craving. These sandwiches are perfect since we love making fresh homemade ice cream (coconut is a new favorite) and these lemon almond cookies sound and look delicious.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth I’d highly recommend giving these a whirl!

Lemon Almond Coconut Ice Cream Sandwiches
(makes 10 sandwiches)

Please note: these cookies do have several steps, but you can do it over the course of a couple days if you want. Bake the cookies and make the ice cream first, then do all the assembling the next day.

coconut ice cream
1 can coconut milk, preferably full fat
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
pinch of salt

In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together the coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt.

Process according to your ice cream maker manufacture’s instructions. Place in a freezer safe container and allow to freeze for at least 3-4 hours before assembling the sandwich cookies.

lemon almond cookies
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
4 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
zest of 1 large lemon

Whisk the almond flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

In a smaller bowl, combine the coconut oil, honey, lemon juice, and lemon zest, mixing well. Pour into the dry mixture and stir until everything is well moistened, the dough will be slightly crumbly, but should hold when pressed together with hands.

Lay out a piece of parchment and use your hands to sort of squeeze the dough together and transfer to the parchment. Carefully roll into a large log about 2 1/2-inches in diameter. Works best if you roll with the parchment, tucking in the ends. Place in the freezer for 1 hour or until firm.

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking pan with parchment.

    It is tempting to want to cook with honey but heating honey above the temperature of 104F is no bueno for the body! (which is why one should only ever consume raw honey) I STRONGLY SUGEST NOT TO COOK/BAKE WITH HONEY, do some research on the subject.
