If you are needing a pretty dessert for a special occasion, this Lavender Ice Cream Sandwiches recipe is for you. These ice cream sandwiches are made of a simple lavender cookie and then filled with either vanilla ice cream or lavender ice cream.
If you can find lavender ice cream in your area, we would definitely recommend using it. However, it can be difficult to find. Our recommendation would be to look for it at independent ice cream shops in your area.
If lavender ice cream isn’t an option for you, no worries! Vanilla ice cream is delicious with the lavender flavor in these cookies. You can use vanilla ice cream as-is, or if you wish, you can use a bit of lavender food color gel to give your vanilla ice cream a pretty lavender color.
The homemade lavender cookies are pretty much a shortbread cookie, with the addition of crushed lavender flowers. To get crushed lavender, you will start with dried lavender flowers and crush them in with a mortar and pestle into a fine powder. They are then incorporated into the raw cookie dough. If you wish, you can press some additional (non-crushed) lavender flowers into the top of the cookie dough before baking. The lavender flowers also look pretty when scattered around your finished ice cream sandwiches
They are lovely for Mother’s Day, Easter, bridal or baby showers, or parties in the spring or summer.
