Lemon Blueberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

Summer sandwiches for dessert

Ice cream sandwiches have that magical ability to remind you of being a kid again. Instead of buying them from the ice cream truck this year, try your hand at making your own! From the recently released cookbook Cookies & Cream: Hundreds of Ways to Make the Perfect Ice Cream Sandwich, author Tessa Arias graciously shares with us this summer-inspired recipe for her Lemon Blueberry Ice Cream Sandwiches. Turn a few pints of fresh, sweet blueberries into a creamy yet refreshing purple-hued blueberry ice cream. Then, make Tessa’s soft, tangy lemon cookies to hold the sandwich together. On a hot summer day, these ice cream sandwiches are colorful, cool, and absolutely delicious.

Most of the recipes I make rely on simple ingredients and techniques that everyone can master. I want my recipes to be delightfully tasty yet achievable because there’s nothing better than the anticipation of a good meal or sweet treat.

Tessa is the blogger and recipe developer behind Handle the Heat, where she takes us on her culinary adventures with creative and delicious recipes. What’s so impressive is that not only is Tessa an active blogger, she’s also a college student and culinary school student at the same time! Although she has professional training, Handle the Heat is all about Tessa’s adventures in her own kitchen as she tries out new recipes while keeping things simple, fun, and flavorful. If that’s not enough, she’s also the author of an upcoming book dedicated to ice cream sandwiches at home!
