Homemade Ice-cream sandwiches

DSC_0991

With the ice-cream and inspiration straight from the Deceptively Delicious cookbook, these are very yummy! I used this recipe from the Chocolate Covered Katie blog for the graham crackers (something we don’t have in Australia!) to make the cute little sandwiches … but the ice cream is pretty delicious on its own! It made me want to try some other flavours using the buttermilk and yoghurt as a base. This works well even if you do not have an ice-cream maker!

Ingredients:
Ice-cream –
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups low fat thick greek yoghurt
1 cup sugar
The juice and rind of a lemon

Graham Crackers –
1 cup and an extra 2 tbs whole-wheat or wholemeal flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp and an extra 1/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp and an extra 1/8 tsp salt
3 tbs sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbs maple syrup
1 tbs sunflower oil
1/4 cup and an extra 1 tbs water

Method:
Graham Crackers –
1. Preheat the oven to 175oC.
2. Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and mix till a dough forms.
3. Roll the dough out between two layers of baking paper and then cut into shapes using either a knife or biscuit cutters (a square one works well for cracker saving you measuring accurately!).
4. Bake biscuits for about 12 minutes … depending on how crispy you like them!
5. Allow to cool and save till you have made the ice-cream!
Ice-Cream –
5. Combine all ingredients and allow to begin freezing.
6. When the ice cream is of a spreadable thickness sandwich between two biscuits and place in the freezer (ideally wrapped up in baking paper) to harden.
7. Enjoy!
