It’s officially ice cream sandwich season! After a few days of warmer temperatures and sunny skies, I’d say summer is finally here. And the perfect way to celebrate is with plenty of ice cream recipes.

I couldn’t be more excited over these ice cream sandwiches. You guys, I’m not joking, I have been waiting and waiting to share these, I just love them so much!

The inspiration

The inspiration was super simple, I wanted to make ice cream sandwiches, but with a berry-filled twist. I wanted them to be happy and pretty for summer. I wanted to have fun photographing them. And I wanted them to be my most delicious ice cream sandwich recipe yet.

I’m excited to report that these pretty little sweet sandwiches check off all of the above boxes. Sometimes you just have to make what you really, really want to make. And I knew I really, really wanted to make these!

The details

If you guys have followed along for a while you may remember my blackberry layer cake. These sandwiches are very, very similar flavor-wise, but in ice cream form.

The jam is quick, but delicious…fresh blackberries, sweet honey, dried lavender, and a squeeze of lemon. Boil everything together until the jam thickens up and turns jammy.

This isn’t your traditional jam however, it will not be jelly-like. It’s more of a sweet, thick blackberry sauce. Make the jam first so that it has plenty of time to cool off.

Pairing lavender with blackberries is a favorite combo of mine. The flora hints from the lavender compliment the sweetness of the blackberries, and when mixed together in a jam.

It is so good!

Now that the jam is made, you can swirl it with 2 containers of your favorite vanilla ice cream. Personally, I love Tillamook! Then freeze the ice cream in a baking dish until firm. This is super easy and will then allow you to simply cut the ice cream into squares.

For the cookies, I did a really easy homemade graham cracker. These are made with butter, honey, flour, and a touch of cinnamon. I like to cut the dough into small squares (they don’t need to be exact, but roughly 2×2 inch squares). Then mix some lavender with sugar and sprinkle it over each cookie before baking.

If you’re finding that your cookies are spreading too much while baking, stick the trays of cut cookies in the freezer for 10 minutes prior to baking. I did not have this issue though.

Sandwich them together

Cut the blackberry swirled ice cream into squares and sandwich it between 2 cookies. You can eat these immediately, or stack them in the freezer for later!

The cookies are crisp, but with a softer center. I love the warmth the cinnamon adds with the sweet white chocolate and lavender ice cream. It’s unexpected but in the most wonderful way! Every chilled bite leaves you wanting another.

You’ll want to have these stashed in the freezer over the next few months. Ice cream every day until the temps dip in September!

Instructions

  • 1. To make the jam. Add the blackberries, honey, lemon juice, and lavender to a medium-size pot set over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling use a potato masher or fork to break down and mash the berries. Continue to cook for 5-8 minutes or until the jam has reduced and thickened by 1/3. Remove from the heat and let cool. This should thicken more as it cools. 
    2. Line a 9x13 inch pan with parchment paper. In a bowl, combine the ice cream and jam until swirled/mixed. Don't over mix, you want swirls. Spread the ice cream in an even layer, then cover and freeze until firm, at least 2 hours.
    3. Preheat oven to 350° F.  In a bowl, cream together the butter, honey, and vanilla until combined, 3-5 minutes. Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Beat until combined. Mix in the white chocolate. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time, until the dough comes together and forms a ball.
    4. Divide the dough in half. Roll out one disk of dough between 2 floured pieces of wax paper to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut 24 squares (roughly 2x2 inch). Transfer the cookies to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining disk of dough.
    5. Combine the lavender and sugar, then lightly sprinkle the lavender sugar over the cookies. Bake 10-12 minutes. Let cool.
    6. Remove the slab of ice cream from the freezer, cut into 12 squares. Sandwich the ice cream between the cookies. Freeze. Enjoy!

  1. Hoping to make these for a summer treat for my family, but not a huge fan of white chocolate. Would you recommend substituting something else, or just omitting?
    Thanks! Love your recipes 🙂

    1. Hey Michaela,
      I would just omit the white chocolate:) Please let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

  2. Hi! I’m excited to try this recipe- Could you use lavender extract instead of the dried flowers?

    Thanks!

    1. Hey Danielle,
      Sure, that would work well for you too, I would probably use 1 teaspoon. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope this recipe turns out amazing for you!! xTieghan

  3. The blackberry lavender ice cream sandwiches look wonderful! Could you please tell me where to purchase culinary lavender…thank you!

  4. These are picture perfect! -Can’t wait to try for our family, but will have to double the recipe. 🙂

    1. Hey Kimberley,
      So glad you enjoyed this recipe, thanks for giving it a try!! I hope your family loves them:) xxT

  5. Hi Tiegan,

    We love blackberries but not the seeds. Considering mashing the berries through a sieve- would you do that first or after you cook them with the honey, lemon juice, and lavender?

    1. Hi Kirsten,
      I would probably do that after cooking them:) Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope it turns out amazing for you! xx

  6. These were so fun to make. The graham cracker and ice cream are a wonderful combination. I will definitely be adding this to my recipe collection. Thanks once again for a wonderful recipe.

    1. Hey Suzanne,
      Wonderful!! Love to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks for sharing your review and making the recipe!! xTieghan

  7. 5 stars
    Thiegen, I made this today as a treat for my office staff tomorrow and can not wait to taste it together. I could not fine blackberries so I subbed frozen blueberries and the jam is delicious! I ended up not swirling all of it in to the ice cream and filled up an ice cube tray with the leftover jam and will store them in a ziplock in the freezer to serve over fruit, in yogurt and also cocktails. I think it will be good with Vodka. My dough never really came together and ended up real sticky. I was able to roll it out and it baked up great. How many tablespoons of water did you end up adding. I stopped at 3 and maybe I added too much. I am anxious to hear from others about how many TB they added. This is another one for the books! A real keeper!

    1. Hey Debbie,
      Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing what worked well for you!! I only used 1 tablespoon of water, the most you use, the more sticky your dough will be. I hope your office staff enjoys the treat:) Have a great Monday! xTieghan

  8. How soft do you let the ice cream get before swirling? I don’t want to change the texture of it.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Cathy,
      It doesn’t need to be super melty, just a touch soft:) Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan
