while i was making pavlova for the past few days for Clara, i tried making ice cream sandwich with the same ingredients and it was a hit! Clara even ate the one I was saving for her sister. =)
you can vary the flavors by adding flavors and food coloring if you like. I am just giving basic recipe here…
For Meringue cookies:
1 (35g) egg white
pinch (0.1g) cream of tartar
pinch (0.1g) salt
1t (4g) Truvia
1/4t (2g) fresh lemon juice
For ice cream:
1/4C (60g) Organic Valley Heavy Whipping Cream
1t (4g) Truvia
Optional: 1/4t (1.5g) vanilla flavor, Frontier alcohol-free (or any other flavor such as Bickford strawberry flavor)
Whip egg white until stiff peak forms. Add cream of tartar and salt and mix. Add 1t(4g) of Truvia and mix well. Add lemon juice and mix well.
Pipe out 6 of 2inch circles. Bake at 230 for 30-40 minutes. Let it cool. When it is done cooling, the outer shell should be crispy and the inside will be marshmallow-like texture.
Whip cream and truvia (1t, 4g) in a small bowl. Add vanilla flavor and mix well.
Once the meringue cookies are cooled, spread 1/3 of the whipped cream and top it with another cookie. Repeat to make 2 more sandwiches.
Place in the freezer for 4-5 hours.
Makes 3 ice cream sandwiches.
It is helpful to draw circles on the bottom side of the parchment paper for guidance.
