Cherry Pistachio Ice-cream Sandwich

For a super quick yet impressive summer dessert you can’t go past an ice-cream sandwich.

What ingredients you use is entirely up to your tastebuds; always choose fresh, sweet, in-season fruit and you can’t go wrong. Currently there is an abundance of locally grown cherries sold on the roadside throughout the region where we live; I knew I had to have some.

Use whatever wafers take your fancy; we used chocolate coated wafers and vanilla ice-cream but experiment with your own combination of flavours and dairy or non-dairy ice desserts.

If you’re feeling lazy or short on time omit the first step and simply scoop the ice-cream onto the wafer biscuits. Great as a summer dessert for a special occasion or just when you feel like a sweet treat!!

Preparation time: 5mins (+2 hours freezing time)
Serves 4

  • 1 litre (1 quart) vanilla ice-cream
  • 8 wafer biscuits
  • 3 tbs raw unsalted pistachio nuts, roughly chopped
  • 8 fresh cherries, chopped
  • 8 extra fresh cherries whole
  • 2 tbs maple syrup (optional)

Line a 25cm (10 inch) square, 10cm (4 inch) deep dish with baking paper.

Spoon frozen ice-cream into the prepared dish and press down evenly.

Cover well with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 2 hour until firm.

Turn the ice-cream out of the dish onto a chopping board and using a wafer biscuit as a guide cut out squares of ice cream; one for each wafer.

Place the sandwich wafer side down and top with chopped cherries and reaming wafer biscuit.

Gently press the edges of each sandwich into the chopped pistachio nuts.

Serve sandwich with remaining whole cherries and drizzled with maple syrup if desired.

Yum num nummmm..

This looks so good. What type (brand) of wafers did you use?

Stella I used a generic brand of chocolate coated vanilla wafers that are made here in New Zealand. I would recommend looking for chocolate coated ones or if not grate some chocolate and add it to the pistachio mix. Yum!!
