Greenstein's Bakery - Baking Bible - Pecan Praline Meringue Ice Cream Sandwiches


Lulu said: "These are awesom-azing!

Toasted Pecans. They really did add a nice flavor to these.

I was thinking, "That is a lot of muscavado. These better be good!" 

 They were a little runny...

I atcually like that they came out nice and thin.

 These really were more delicious then I expected them to be. A real treat. However, most of the kids slurped out the ice cream and left the cookies with the offending nuts un-eaten.

  1. Yours look so caramalized and crisp! I think I like yours better too! much better for ice-cream sandwich. :)

  2. i think this is much better way to get the flat cookie look, rather than the sticky mixture.great job!

  3. I like them flat and caramelised too! Much easier to eat like that. Lol, best part of an ice cream sandwich being a kid is the slurping out the ice cream :) --- Jeniffer

  4. I love seeing the kiddos in the kitchen. I'll be making these this afternoon and have a feeling I'll like the cookie version better than the ice cream sandwich version. Time will tell. Have a great week.

  5. Hi Mendy: Mine were not as dark, but I didn't have the special sugar and had to use what I had on hand--a mixture of light brown and dark Muscovado. Mine were puffy but I think when I make them again I will make them thin and crispy like yours. Shayna is lovely as she can be!

  6. Honey and milk under your tongue is a perfect description. I splurged and bought Muscovado sugar and I too cringed at the amount called for. Being that I never tasted it before, I found it so delicious. I'm hooked, unfortunately. BTW, my Grandmother loved to call me "my Shayna Punim."

    1. Kimberlie, you are still a "Shayna punim". 😊

  7. I've just added awesom-azing to my vocabulary. I love crunchy meringues as there is more flavour to them, yours are lovely cookies Mendy!

  8. i like the caramelised wafer-like meringues. I also like Lulu's floral outfit for baking. So sweet.
