Celebrate Memorial Day and the unofficial start to the summer season with this gussied up ice cream sandwich. A far cry from the flavorless chocolate ones you remember from the ice cream truck, Half Moon’s version is a seasonal treat that suits the vacation-like waterfront setting.
Slightly sweet sheets of crispy Phyllo pastry are stacked on top of scoops of creamy vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and a scattering of bright and refreshing fruit. An artful drizzle of chocolate and raspberry sauces finishes the frozen dessert. It’s a nostalgic summertime treat, all grown up.
