6 Ice Cream Sandwich Hacks


Our lives changed the day we decided to stick some gelato into a kouign amann. The ultra buttery croissant-like pastry from Dominique Ansel had never met the gelato from Osteria Morini before, but they really hit it off. Eyes-closed-whoa-this-is-good hit it off.

Dominique and Morini are conveniently just a five-minute walk apart, so anyone strolling around Soho can also hack this ice cream sandwich. "Sandwich" is a loosely used term here. Who says an ice cream sandwich must be limited to cookie plus ice cream?

This was just the beginning. Max, Sam, and I started brainstorming other sweet mashups where a scoop of ice cream (or gelato or even soft serve) could be inserted into a giant cookie (or pretzel croissant or brownie). Because why not.

Such hacking requires a short walk and a plastic knife for slicing the "sandwich" part, and a stack of napkins.
