Yummy Dessert

Last weekend, M and I hosted a dinner party at the house. A lovely little affair with some of our favorite people. The fall menu included the maple cider salad (which I posted below), roasted carrots and butternut squash, mashed potatoes, roast chicken, and for dessert, puff pastry ice cream sandwiches. It was good stuff.

The dessert was probably my favorite part of the dinner, besides the company, of course. I have the worst (or best, depending on how you look at it) sweet tooth. These puff pastry ice cream sandwiches were the easiest dessert to make, and very tasty...

1 package of frozen puff pastry sheets
1 container of Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia Ice Cream
2 T sugar
1 egg white
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Thaw one sheet of the frozen puff pastry. There will be two natural folds in the puff pastry sheet, cut along those folds. You should have three long pieces of puff pastry at this point. Cut each of the long pieces into four small squares. Brush each square with egg white, then sprinkle with sugar and sliced almonds. Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Let cool.

To assemble the ice cream sandwiches, place one to two scoops of the ice cream between two pieces of puff pastry. That's it!

Chow down!
