Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream Sandwiches
Ice cream sandwiches, anyone?
I made delicious Orange Whoopie Pies that look like orange slices and then I sandwiched super creamy vanilly ice cream rounds between them. So good.
Orange Slice Whoopie Pies (make six sandwiches)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 tbl room temperature butter
1 large egg
1tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour
3/4tsp baking powder
1/2cup buttermilk( if you don't have buttermilk on hand make your own : to 1/2 cup whole milk add 1/2tsp white distilled vinegar, let sit for 5 minutes, then gently stir and use in the recipe as directed)
Zest of one large orange
Food Coloring - orange
Preheat oven to 350F.
Stir flour baking powder and salt, set a side.
Whisk egg vanilla and orange zest.
Beat butter and sugar until creamy and fluffy, add egg mixture, beat until doubled in volume and creamy, pale in color.
Add 1/2 of the flour mixture into the butter mixture, stir on low speed, add 1/2 of the buttermilk, then add rest of the flour, stir and add rest of the buttermilk.
Divide batter into 3 portions. Color largest portions with light orange and one smaller portion with orange- achieving darker shade of orange. Keep one portion uncolored.
Fill the piping bags with the batter.
Spray whoopie pie pan with nonstick spray.
Pipe orange slice pattern on the pan. See the video for instructions
Bake at 350F for 12-14 minutes.
Let cool on the baking sheet for couple minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. Cook completely before filling.
Ice Cream Filling - vanilla ice cream
Soften the ice cream, spread onto the small baking sheet, freeze. Using a metal cutter cut out rounds.
Sandwich ice cream rounds between 2 orange slice cakes.
Store in the freezer until ready to use.
