Cold, creamy ice cream sandwiched between two cookies (or doughnuts, bread, macarons, waffles… take your pick, it can be done) is very possibly one of the biggest summer refreshments. With limitless flavor combinations, the chances are endless and frozen treats makers, pastry chefs and cooks across the country use their creative chops to create innovative, fun and above all tasty concoctions.
“I think the thing that makes for 冰淇淋 is the blend of textures and it’s fun because you know it will receive a little messy,” says Sam Mason of OddFellows Soft Ice Cream Co. in Ny City.
From classic vanilla ice cream amid chocolate chip cookies to warm brioche bread encasing cornbread frozen goodies and blueberry compote, there’s an ice cream sandwich to please everyone. And it’s an ideal summer treat.
Soft ice cream sandwiches also present an ideal chance for collaboration, with many different shops getting various areas of their sandwiches from neighboring businesses. As an example, Ice & dexrpky27 often collaborates with Underwest Donuts, Daly Pie and Abigail’s Bakeshop on quirky creations, much like the Let’s 三明治冰餅, made using Daly Pie’s pie crust, filled up with cardamom apple pie swirl frozen goodies and rolled in boozy candied pecan.
“We’re always working toward finding the perfect mix of flavors, texture and overall fun, where people can satisfy their dessert cravings and enjoying yourself while carrying it out,” says El.
