Ice Cream Sandwich Cookie : Lemon Poppy Seed w/ Berry Ice Cream

Yesterday we showed you how to make a simple mixed berry no-churn ice cream recipe.  As we promised in our previous post, the good friends at Nielsen-Massey have provided us with this recipe as well as extracts/ paste to also make these Ice Cream Sandwich Cookie: Lemon Poppy Seed with Berry Ice Cream

These are pretty simple cookies to make, and since the dough needs time to cool in the fridge, you can make them the same day as the ice cream.  The combination of the lemon cookies and sweet ice cream is perfect for a hot day. 

The recipe looks lengthy but it really is not that hard of a recipe.

What can I substitute for lemon zest?

Have you ever had to skip a recipe because you have all the ingredients except a fresh lemon for zest?  Well, those days are over thanks to Nielsen-Massey Pure Lemon Paste .  I had never used it before but it sure does save time and agony over not having lemon zest. 

What you need for the cookies

Make the Dough per the recipe and divide dough into two even pieces.

Press each piece into a one-to-two-inch thick rectangle. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or until the dough is cool and firm.

Remove chilled dough from the fridge, remove plastic wrap and place one section of the dough between two pieces of parchment paper.

Using a rolling pin, start at the center of the dough and begin to roll away from your body, rotating the dough every few rolls to ensure even thickness.

Check out the best method for rolling out cookie dough. Once the dough reaches ¼-inch thickness, place in the fridge to chill for 15 minutes.

Repeat with the second half of the dough.

Remove dough from fridge, place on the counter and remove the top piece of parchment paper. Dip a 3-inch round cookie cutter into the bowl of flour to dust the edge of the cutter, then press firmly onto the dough.

Leave ½ inch of space between each cookie.

After all cookie shapes are stamped from both sheets, peel away the excess dough, leaving the cut-out cookies on the parchment paper.  Or you can carefully remove each cut cookie and place on another piece of parchment paper.
