Lemon Almond Coconut Ice Cream Sandwiches (Kopie)

Lemon Almond Coconut Ice Cream Sandwiches / makes 10 sandwiches

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 (maple syrup or agave if making vegan)
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.

The best method I found to cut these was to unwrap the chilled dough and cut into 1/4-inch slices, then lay the parchment back over each slice, one at a time, and flatten it out to an 1/8-inch thick. The reason for doing this is if you try cutting them 1/8-inch they start to sort of crumble apart. If any pieces do break off just re-press together, they’ll bake fine.

Place slices on baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Make sure to check after 8 minutes, then only add a minute at a time, you don’t want them to burn. Allow to cool on baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack, this is an important step! If you transfer before letting them rest they will break. Cool completely before filling with ice cream. You can also place them in the freezer if you’d like to speed up the process.

To assemble, spoon out one scoop of ice cream, place in the center of an upside-down cookie, top with another cookie and carefully smash down, applying even pressure. Place in the freezer for another hour to re-chill before serving. If you’ve let your ice cream chill for longer than 4 hours you may want to set it out to soften a bit before this step. Soft ice cream works best when assembling sandwich cookies.
