I baked the soft ginger cookies last week and stored them in the freezer. The ice cream was made 2 days in advance and placed in the freezer as well. After the prep of the ice cream and cookies, making the sandwiches shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes.
I let the ice cream soften just a bit before scooping onto the bottom of the ginger cookie.
Top ice cream with another ginger cookie.
That’s it! Bright lemony ice cream stuffed between soft ginger cookies. Citrus and ginger are such a great pair. Wrap cookies individually or place in an air tight container and freeze until ready to eat.

Slowly pour the egg/cream mixture back into the pan and cook over low heat until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl.
