Belgian almond-butter thins (such as those made by Jules Destrooper) are very thin and crisp and rectangular in shape; look for them at supermarkets and specialty food stores.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a bowl, pour brandy over apricots; let sit 1 minute, then stir in jam to combine. Refrigerate 5 minutes.

  • Butter an 8-inch-square baking dish. Line with parchment paper, leaving a 4-inch overhang. Fold the apricot mixture into ice cream to cover completely; freeze until firm, about 50 minutes.

  • To assemble, cut the ice cream into pieces to match the cookies, and layer to form sandwiches.

Cook's Notes

The sandwiches can be wrapped tightly in plastic and frozen up to 1 week.
