Raspberry Vanilla Puff Pastry Ice Cream Sandwiches. With basically only 4 ingredients and using frozen puff pastry, these make ahead little desserts are ideal for parties.
When I posted a preview picture of this dessert on the Rock Recipes Facebook Page I got one of the biggest responses ever in terms of the number of people who commented on the photo and even more who messaged me for the recipe immediately!!
This was an idea I had based upon the famous Vachon brand “Flakie” snack cakes that are sold here in Canada. Everybody who tried them loved them, especially the kids. It’s a very simple thing to put together and they keep very well for at least a couple of weeks in a sealed container in the freezer.
They are a great thing to have on hand for a quick dessert. I can see a whole lot of possible flavour combinations here. I can’t wait to try making them with some of my homemade ice cream too.

You might also like:
- 1 package frozen puff pastry
- 1 egg + 1 tbsp water whisked together to make an egg wash
- Raspberry Compote or good quality raspberry jam
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tsp corn starch dissolved in ¼ cup water
Lay the first sheet of pastry flat and brush with the egg wash. Place the second sheet of pastry directly on top of the first and cut the pastry into 16 equal squares or rectangles depending on the particular size of the pastry sheets.
Place the squares onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush the tops of the pastries with egg wash and sprinkle the tops with a thin layer of plain table sugar. Chill the pastries for a half hour in the fridge before baking.
Bake in a 375 F degree oven for about 20 minutes until medium golden brown. Cool the pastries on a wire rack. When cool, split each pastry horizontally with a sharp serrated knife and fill with a layer each of raspberry compote and vanilla ice cream. Block ice cream works best because it can easily be sliced and cut to the exact size of the pastries.
Slowly simmer raspberries, sugar and water for about 5 minutes. Stir in the corn starch mixture stirring constantly and cook for an additional minute. Cool completely.
