Dessert Recipe: Limoncello Sugar Cookie Ice-Cream Sandwich


While I was over at Le Delicieux and Dining With a Stud, I immediately knew I wanted to take part in their Sweet Adventure Blog Hop (SABH), which I just discovered is hosted every month. Now, that to me is a fun way of mingling virtually, and presenting my best (so I think) recipes forward. To learn more on how to join in the fun, click on the SABH Blog Hop badge.
For this month of April, the theme is all about cooking or baking with Lemons. Lately, I can't seem to steer away from Limoncello, and today I am presenting you with another way; that I found myself incorporating Limoncello into my desserts. After much pondering and pacing back and forth, I decided that this weekend's treat is going to be a mini treat but will leave you a happy camper once you're done with it.
There will be 2 recipes in a single treat. This recipe is so versatile that you can even just have each of it on it's own. So what did I make, where you might be drooling over? (drum-rolls please ;p) Okay, be prepared.. as I went a little crazy and made 2 things all from scratched. Firstly, I baked sugar cookies, and then went on to make Limoncello Lemon Ice-Cream.
This is my biggest issue, being indecisive. I couldn't decide which to share with you first, so I decided to make a switch up by pairing the cookie and ice-cream together. Alas came Limoncello Sugar Cookie Ice-Cream Sandwich. A long name for such a tiny treat, but it's oh! so worth it. Doesn't the sound of it make you want to take a bite out of this cold treat? Also, here's some good news, this ice-cream recipe doesn't require you to have an ice-cream maker, since I don't own one anyways..LOL. I have been doing up some reading, and the trick is to have adequate amount of sugar in an ice-cream to prevent ice particles from forming in your cream during freezing stage. Too scientific or technical? You're not alone, as I was left confused but felt like I learnt something new after some research. For now, let's enjoy this cold treat anytime of day.

Whenever I make a treat, I always like a balance of sweet and tangy sensation all at once. A lot like "ying & yang". To achieve the balance, the sugar cookies were sandwiched with lemony, creamy ice-cream with some adult oomph added, for that extra kick; Limoncello. Overall a simple pleasurable decadence for a hot Sunday afternoon tea-break.

So peeps! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. I certainly hope today's recipe will leave you with some oOOOooss..ahHHHHhhhhsss...mmMMMMMMmmmm!!

  2. The lemon ice cream sounds delicious. I haven't had "good" lemon ice cream in a long time. I am looking forward to making your recipe. I really like the fact I don't need an ice cream freezer. Thanks:) Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  5. Oh wow, what a creation! They look devine. I was very tempted to make Limoncello for this months blog hop, not so much for the taste (sort of like fire water really...) but for how pretty it looks in cute little bottles! I can imagine that in your delightful little biscuits the Limoncello would give a little 'bite' but not so much 'fire'! Lemon and white chocolate macarons won for me in the end :)

  7. Your sandwich cookies look so good! I think I'm missing out because I've never tried an ice cream cookie sandwich. Something I need to rectify ASAP.

    Thanks for joining the blog hop!
