- 4 packages ladyfingers (3 oz. each)
- 1 half gallon ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sherbet (brick package
Open the packages of ladyfingers and remove the top half of each strip, leaving the bottom half in the trays. Open the ice cream package completely (package should be flat). With a large knife, cut the ice cream block in half lengthwise and roll each half onto its side. (The part you just cut should now be facing up.) Cut each of these halves into 4 equal slices, the size of the ladyfinger strips. This will give you a total of 8 slices. Place a slice of the ice cream onto each of the ladyfinger strips. Place the remaining ladyfinger strips on top of the ice cream. These can now be cut into 48 individual ice cream sandwiches. They can be put into a freezer bag or plastic container and stored in the freezer until you are ready to serve.
While the ice cream sandwiches are great snacks for kids or adults, you can make a simple yet elegant summertime dessert by using a fruit flavored ice cream or yogurt and cutting each strip of sandwiches into two or three pieces instead of individual sandwiches. Place these larger sandwiches onto a dessert plate and garnish with the appropriate fresh fruit or fruit topping.
