Sriracha Ice Cream Sandwiches

“Sweet with a bit of heat, this no-cook ice cream is a fun change from your usual ice cream sandwiches.”

When I saw this recipe in Extra, the Raley’s/Nob Hill magazine, I thought immediately of Taku Ginger Cookies, which are one of my favorites. I was a bit worried about making ice cream only from coconut milk so I replaced half of it with half and half. I gulped as I put in all that Sriracha and with good reason. I think next time I would try it with half  as much hot sauce to make them a little more subtle. Still, with the pepper kick from the ice cream and the ginger kick from the Takus, they really got right in your mouth!

    I sort of made this last night; the sort of is because after I rolled 8 cookies and ate the results I got tired and put the rest in a glass square brownie pan/casserole dish and sprinkled the top with the granulated sugar. <3 This for sure! I was going back and forth from my phone to the tiny kitchen and had a small snafu with TBS/tsp and the baking soda; white on white baking crime. I just scooped out what I thought was the right stuff, left out the salt and still ended up ok. I nearly did the same with the spices. I subbed 2 TBS Garam Masala for everything but the fresh Ginger, added 1/2 tsp Nutmeg as everything else was encompassed (and then some) by the spice blend, and had to use 1/4 c coconut oil because I was out of butter. I also added 3/4 bag of artisanal dk chocolate chips – the Nestle brand/single origin from Ghana. I like the blend of sugars, it adds the right chewy texture. I use dk brown sugar, and Wally world only had 1 kind of Molasses(unsulphured yay) that was inexplicably in the syrup/pancake aisle. Thanks Doc ;D I also made a whole fruit cranberry curd thinking to combine the flavors somehow, but then didn't get around to it. Maybe next time, thinking a thumbprint/filled muffin/coffee cake/waffle kind of thing with all the flavors.
