Recipe Info

  • Servings : 8
  • Prep Time : 1:30 h
  • Cook Time : 30m
  • Ready In : 3:00 h


  • 4 oz (115g) butter or margarine,at room temperature
  • 2 oz (55g) caster sugar
  • 4 oz (115g) plain flour
  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • icing sugar,for sprinkling
  • 16 fl oz (450ml) coffee ice cream
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder,for sprinkling


Step 1

Lightly grease 2-3 baking trays.

Step 2

With an electric mixer or wooden spoon, beat the butter or margarine until soft. Beat in the caster sugar.

Step 3

Add the flour and coffee and mix by hand to form an evenly blended dough. Wrap in a plastic bag and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Step 4

Lightly sprinkle the work surface with icing sugar. Knead the dough on the sugared surface for a few minutes to soften it slightly.

Step 5

Using a rolling pin dusted with icing sugar, roll out the dough to ⅛ in (3mm) thickness. With a 2½ in (6cm) fluted pastry cutter,cut out 16 rounds. Transfer the rounds to the prepared baking trays. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 6

Preheat a 300°F/150°C/Gas 2 oven. Bake the biscuits until they are lightly golden, about 30 minutes. Let them cool and firm up before removing them from the trays to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 7

Remove the ice cream from the freezer and let soften 10 minutes at room temperature.

Step 8

With a metal spatula, spread the ice cream evenly on the flat side of eight of the biscuits, leaving the edges clear. Top with the remaining biscuits, flat-side down.

Step 9

Arrange the ice cream sandwiches on a baking tray. Cover and freeze at least 1 hour, longer if a firmer sandwich is desired. Sift the cocoa powder over the tops before serving.
