Elato’s Ice Cream Sandwich with Gluten-free Macaroon

This is a great ice cream sandwich recipe you should never miss!

The macaroon (not to be mistaken with the French macaron) originated in medieval Italy using almond meal. It was adopted by European Jews as a traditional food made during the Passover as it was unleavened, not using raising agents such as yeast to rise. This recipe can be made keto, nut-free or vegan. It is perfect for making sandwiches with your favourite Elato ice cream flavour.

Prep Time15 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time45 mins

 1 cup of desiccated coconut or any type of ground nut, such as pistachio, peanut, hazelnut, walnut, pecan or almond, or roast and grind your own nuts
 ⅓ cup caster sugar
 1 egg white (or 30ml/2 tbsp aquafaba, ie liquid from a can of legumes)

1

Set oven to 160C (140C fan-forced).

2

If making your own ground nuts, roast whole nuts in oven at above temperature for 5-10 minutes, let cool and then grind in a food processor to as fine or chunky as you wish.

3

Mix all ingredients in a bowl or food processor.

4

For a lighter, fluffier macaroon – and only if using a fine nut meal or coconut – whip the egg white or aquafaba first with a pinch of cream of tartar and gently fold with the dry ingredients.

5

The mix needs to be moist so that it sticks together (if using aquafaba and the mix feels too crumbly, add more aquafaba).

6

Once mixed, place in the fridge for 10 minutes to reduce stickiness.

7

Line a biscuit sheet tray with baking paper.

8

Use wet hands, spoon or ice cream scoop to portion mix into required size and set on tray.

9

Flatten each portion with a spatula or similar – for uniform round macaroons, shape with a cookie cutter or egg ring.

10

Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes – the less brown, the more soft in the centre.

11

Remove from oven and lift macaroons off gently with a knife as they can be sticky in the middle and place on a wire rack to cool (if the middle is sticky, flip the macaroon upside down).

12

Once cool, scoop Elato ice cream between two macaroons, or for a professional finish flatten some ice cream on a board and use the same cookie cutter to get the same shape and size ice cream to sit inside the sandwich.
