Blueberry ice-cream sandwiches

Serves: Makes 12
Total Time: 1 hr + 5 hrs, to freeze

Ingredients

  • BLUEBERRY ICE CREAM

  • 130g frozen blueberries
  • 50g sugar
  • 500ml fresh cream
  • 1 x 385g tin condensed milk
  • 4 extra-large eggs, separated
  • BISCUITS

  • 200g butter
  • 100g castor sugar
  • 300g cake flour
  • 2,5ml (½ tsp) salt

Instructions

1

For the blueberry ice cream, place the blueberries and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 2 minutes. Transfer to a blender and blitz until smooth. Strain the mixture through a sieve and set aside to cool.

2

In a large glass bowl, whip the cream to stiff-peak stage. In a separate bowl, whisk together the condensed milk, egg yolks and blended blueberry purée. Fold this mixture into the whipped cream.

3

Using an electric hand-held beater or free-standing mixer, whisk the egg whites to stiff-peak stage – ensure the bowl is scrupulously clean and dry or the egg whites won’t reach full volume. Fold the egg whites into the ice-cream mixture. Pour into an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 5 hours, but preferably overnight.

4

For the biscuits, using an electric hand-held beater or free-standing mixer, cream together the butter and castor sugar. Add the cake flour and salt, and mix gently to a soft dough. Form into a disc, wrap in cling film and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

5

Preheat the oven to 150°C. Grease and line a baking sheet with baking paper. Roll the biscuit dough out to a 0,3cm thickness. Cut out 24 rounds using a 6cm-diameter cookie cutter. Place on the greased and lined baking sheet and bake for 5 – 7 minutes, until golden and firm to the touch. Remove from oven and set aside on a wire rack to cool.

6

Scoop balls of blueberry ice cream onto the biscuits and sandwich together. Serve and enjoy!
