Blackberry-Amaretti Ice Cream Sandwiches
MAKES 12 sandwiches
- 1 C Fresh Blackberries
- 6 Tbsp Amaretto
- 1 pint Vanilla Ice Cream (homemade or store-bought)
In a small bowl, crush blackberries with a fork. Pour Amaretto over blackberries and stir. Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to steep. During that time, allow your ice cream to thaw a bit, so it will be soft enough to mix. Once steeped, mix blackberries and amaretto into the ice cream and return to the freezer to harden, because of the alcohol this will take several hours.
- 3 C Almonds, blanched & slivered
- 1 ½ C Sugar
- 1 tsp Almond Extract
- 3 Egg Whites
Add almonds and sugar to food processor. Process until it becomes a fine powder. Add almond extract and egg whites and continue to process until it turns into a dough ball. Roll into balls about 1 ½ inch in diameter. Place onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Wet hand with cold water and flatten balls to about ¼” thick. Bake at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Edges will be crisp and center will be chewy. Cool completely before assembling sandwiches.
