Step-by-step Blackberry Ice Cream Sandwich recipe

Adapted from Cravings Journal Blog’s recipe:

By far, the best way to prepare it is to use cookies for base and top. The secret is to make a perfect dough and cook it just enough because if it becomes golden and crispy, you won’t be able to cut the sandwiches. You must remove them from the oven when they’re set and JUST starting to become slightly golden.


For the cookie layers

  • 90 g unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 50 g granulated white sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract or vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 150 g all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ tsp baking powder

For the blackberry ice cream

  • 150 g fresh or frozen blackberries (you can replace it with blackberry puree)
  • 25 g granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 200 g condensed milk
  • 300 g whipping cream cold

For the cookie layers

  • Place the butter, salt and sugar in a bowl where you're going to beat it. You can use and electric mixer or a whisk. Beat the ingredients until they look creamy. If you're using a stand mixer, make sure to stop occasionally, to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula.
  • Add the egg and beat again until it's creamy once again. Remember to stop to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl if using a stand mixer.
  • Add the milk and vanilla and mix.
  • Add the flour and baking powder and mix. If you're doing it by hand you can switch to a spatula at this point.
  • Divide the dough into two parts. I weigh it and divide it precisely in two.
  • Cut a piece of baking paper to a strip of 20cm/8in wide by about 45cm/18in long. Place it at the base of a 20cm/8in square pan so the long sides go up the sides of the pan. You can keep them in place using paper clips like these or stick the paper in place with a bit of vegetable oil. Place half the dough in the pan and spread it out as evenly as you can with your fingers.
  • Bake the dough in a preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 9-12 minutes or until it looks set and it's just starting to become barely golden. If it becomes golden and crispy you won't be able to cut the sandwiches later.
  • Repeat with the other half of the dough. Let them cool 100% before using them.

For the blackberry ice cream

  • In a small pot add the blackberries, sugar, water and lemon juice. Cook the ingredients until it's very thick over medium heat. Use the spatula or spoon to smash the blackberries as they cook. Remove from the pot and let it cool down completely before following the rest of the recipe.
  • Mix the blackberries and the condensed milk.
  • Whip the cream and vanilla to soft peaks: you want it to be whipped and fluffy but not too much that it becomes stiff.
  • Add about 1/3 of the whipped cream to the condensed milk and mix. Add the rest in and use folding motions with a spatula to mix everything together. Add the blondies and fold them in.
  • Cross two pieces of paper like the one you did before on the 20cm/8in square pan. Place the first cookie layer on top, and you want the bottom of the cookie to be facing upwards.
  • Pour the ice cream mix on top and even it out.
  • Place the other cookie layer on top, with the base of the cookie facing the ice cream. Press down slightly.
  • Freeze for 8 hours or overnight.
  • Once the ice cream is frozen, lift the whole thing using the paper. Cut up the sandwiches and enjoy!
How should you serve Blackberry Ice Cream Sandwich?

You can also make the blackberry ice cream without the cookies. In this case you would get 2 pints of ice cream / 1 liter of ice cream and you can double the recipe to make the usual amount my ice cream recipes yield. If you prefer, the filling can be made with raspberries as well. If you do make it with raspberries, omit the lemon juice. Lemon is added to the blackberries to enhance the blackberry flavor but it’s not necessary with the raspberriesIce Cream Sandwich with Other Flavors

Instead of using blackberry ice cream, you can make these ice cream sandwiches with any ice cream recipe you like. Here are a few ideas: mango, raspberry, banana, blueberry, strawberry. Eat them frozen and enjoy!
