Strawberry Ice cream Sandwich

This is my first time to join the Pinoy Foodista Cooking Challenge.  I am happy to join this group of fine Filipino Foodies.  You can find more about them here.  Please click here and vote for my sandwich.

This month's challenge is "Strawberries in a sandwich".  I have to credit my sister-in-law with this one.  She suggested doing an ice cream sandwich.  I ran with that idea and made a Strawberry meringue ice cream in a Triple chocolate cookie sandwich.

I don't have an ice cream maker so I had to find a easy ice cream recipe that I can make.  I found this recipe while watching a children's cooking show.  Yep, that's right.  The best thing about this recipe is that it's very simple and children can help you make it. 

I got Deanna to help me.  She loves cooking and as soon as I told her what I was going to make, she put on her apron straight away.

Strawberry Meringue Ice cream
250ml double cream
4 heaped dessert spoons natural yoghurt
4 level dessert spoons icing sugar
12 large strawberries, hulled and smashed with the back of a fork
2 meringue nest

1. whisk the cream in the bowl, until it’s light and fluffy. 

2.  Add the yoghurt and icing sugar to the cream and whisk it more.

3.  Place the strawberries in the mixture.

4.  Hold a meringue nest over the bowl and crush it in your hand and then drop it into the mixture and give it a gentle stir.

5.  Pour the mixture into the lidded container and put it in the freezer for at least two hours or preferably overnight.

Take out of the freezer about 30 minutes before sandwiching in the cookies to soften a little.

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
125g unsalted butter, softened.
1 1/4 cups tightly packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups plain flour
2 tbs cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
3/4 cups dark chocolate chips
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 180degC.  Place butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until light and creamy.  Add vanilla and egg and stir to combine.  Stir in the sifted flour, cocoa powder baking powder and salt until just combined.  Fold through the  rocky road.

Place spoonfuls of cookie mixture on a lined baking tray, allowing room for spreading.  Cook for 15-20 minutes, until they turn pale gold.

Allow to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before placing biscuits on a wire rack to cool further.

Bon Appetite,
