Recipe taken from sorted (make 8)

For the biscuit:

  • butter (90g)
  • light brown sugar (140g)
  • castor sugar (100g)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • plain flour (100g)
  • cocoa powder (50g)
  • pinch of baking soda

For the lemon curd ice cream:

  • tub of mascarpone cheese (250g)
  • 3 tbsp lemon curd
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • carton of fresh custard (425g)

RECIPE

mix the mascarpone, fresh custard, lemon curd and lemon juice together.
pour into a shallow baking tray, smooth out and freeze for 2 hours.
preheat an oven to 180˚C.
beat the butter, sugars and vanilla until creamy.
add in the egg whites and continue mixing.
measure in the rest of the dry ingredients, mixing slowly until incorporated.
spoon teaspoonfuls onto a baking paper lined tray, leaving space between them (make 16).
bake for 10-12 minutes until they have cracked tops.
remove from oven, cut into exact shapes if you want them all regular, then leave to cool.
spoon a tablespoon of the ice cream between two of the cooled chocolate biscuits and smooth over to the edge.
return to the freezer and store there in an air-tight container for up to a month until ready to eat.

the cookies were way too sweet so next time I’ll cut down the brown sugar even more (I used 100g). Perhaps it was because we were too lazy so we just bought ice cream as filling and it was a little over killed x.x
