Puff Pastry Ice Cream Sandwiches

Once you make these ice cream sandwiches you’ll never want store bought again.  Puff pastry replaces the boring cookies and we’ve created a simple method that turns flaky pastry into crisp, crunchy goodness. It’s puff pastry like you’ve never tasted before. Make a bunch and keep them tightly wrapped in the freezer for a quick treat.

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Puff Pastry Sheets(1 sheet), thawed
  • 3 cups ice cream (use your favorite flavor or an assortment of flavors), softened

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 375°F.  Line 1 baking sheet with parchment paper (When it's time to bake, you will need 1 additional baking sheet and parchment paper).

  2. Sprinkle the flour on the work surface.  Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into an 11x14-inch rectangle.  Place the pastry onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and top with another layer of parchment paper and another baking sheet (This will create a thin, crispy pastry when baked).

  3. Bake for 25 minutes, removing the top baking sheet and parchment during the last 5 minutes of the baking time. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and place on a wire rack. Replace the second baking sheet to keep the pastry from curling as it cools. Let the pastry cool completely.

  4. Cut the pastry into 12 (3 1/2-inch) squares.  Spread 1/2 cup ice cream onto each of 6 pastries.  Top with the remaining pastries.  If desired, dip the edges of the sandwiches in sprinkles, chopped nuts, crushed pretzels or whatever you like to coat the ice cream .  Place on baking sheets and freeze for 1 hour or until firm.

  5. To make ahead, you can wrap the frozen sandwiches (after the 1 hour freeze in the last step) in waxed paper or plastic wrap and store them in the freezer for up to a week.
