For the ice cream:

For the cookies or biscuits:

  • 120 g butter unsalted, room tem,perature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup honey Greek preferred
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups flour plain or all purpose, may need to add a little more to get a good, pliable dough
  • 1 pinch salt

For the decoration:

  • 1 cup walnuts shelled, coarsley chopped
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Using an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugar and honey until you have a creamy consistency-this will take between 2-3 mins. Lower the speed on your mixer and proceed to add the eggs one at a time ensuring they are well incorporated. Add your vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly add this flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until a dough begins to form. You may need to add a little more flour to form the dough. Roll the dough into a ball, wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
  • Pre heat your oven to 180 deg C and line a baking tray with some baking paper.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge and on a lightly floured surface proceed to roll it out to ¼ inch thick. Using your preferred cookie cutter and cut out 8 cookies. Line the cookies on the baking pan and pierce the tops with a fork.
  • Bake for 8-10 mins, remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely before sandwiching the ice cream.
  • Once you have sandwiched the ice cream, roll the sides of the sandwich in the walnut mixture.


  • The cookie cutters I used measured in at 9 cms. I think it would be better to use smaller ones say 6-7 cms. I’ll leave that up to you.
  • Also as I stated earlier, it would be preferable to use the same cookie cutters to cut out the ice cream once it had frozen in a shallow pan. That way they would fit perfectly around the two biscuits.
