It’s national ice cream sandwich day today, and if we’re looking for the vegan queen of delicious biscuity creations we are definitely heading to Galia for an awesome recipe (@_fuxkingfalafel_ on Instagram).
Here’s Galia’s recipe to make the Norty-est salted caramel lotus cookie sandwich out there!
Recipe for cookies (can also be found in the highlights of my insta):
-275g lotus spread
-125g vegan butter
-140g syrup (golden/maple/agave)
-40g caster sugar
-35g brown sugar
-1tbsp vanilla extract
-240g plain flour
Step 1: Preheat oven to 160C or 325F
Step 2: Mix the lotus spread, vegan butter, syrup, caster sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl
Step 3: Add the plain flour and mix until combined
Step 4: Once the mixture is combined, make small balls of the dough (I usually make around 18/19 but depends how big you want the cookies to be)
Step 5: Place the balls on a baking tray and flatten slightly using a fork/hand (I usually place around 6 on a baking tray as they spread quite a bit in the oven!)
Step 6: Place the cookies in the oven and bake for around 12/13 mins (the longer you leave them, the less chewy they are)
Step 7: Once your cookies are done, take them out of the oven and let them cool on the baking tray for around 5 mins then transfer them to a cooling rack for at least another 5 mins of cooling
Assembling cookie sandwich:
-Take 2 of your lotus spread cookies
-Place your favourite ice cream on one cookie (I used Vegan Ben n Jerry’s peanut butter n cookies)
-Add a teaspoon of your fave flavour of Norty spread – I used Salted Caramel flavour – to the ice cream
-Add the second cookie sandwich and enjoy!
