Start the Day With a Lavender Ice Cream Bagel Sandwich

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that 2016 was the year of the bagel. From rainbow bagels to Oreo bagels, no stone was left unturned. However, just because we’re three months into the new year (YIKES! Where did this year ago?), doesn’t mean we can’t try new ways to enjoy our favorite breakfast treat. So how does one amp up an already delicious on-the-go meal? Add ice cream, of course. This bagel lavender ice cream sandwich will trump your go-to brunch any day of the week. Need this recipe in your life? Check out the deets below.

Ingredients: 

  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 3-4 scoops vanilla bean ice cream
  • 1 tub pre-cut biscuits
  • red and blue food coloring
  • 4-5 sticks of lavender

Instructions:

1. To make the lavender simple syrup, place 3 tablespoons worth of lavender petals into a bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar and equal parts hot water. Mix everything and set aside for a couple of hours.

2. Once the lavender has steeped, pour the lavender simple syrup through a sieve to separate the petals from the liquid.

3. Place 4-6 scoops of vanilla bean into another bowl and carefully pour the lavender liquid on top. Mix together until everything is combined. Place back in the freezer for the next few hours.

4. In another small bowl, drop 2-3 droplets of red food coloring. Add 4-5 droplets of blue food coloring on top. Mix together until it begins to make a dark purple hue.

5. Break open the pre-cut biscuit can and divide the 8 biscuits into 2 piles: one pile for the purple hue and the other pile to be plain. Take one pile of biscuits and roll them together. Cover them with the purple food coloring mixture.

6. Layer your surface with flour and create 2 smaller patches with the colored and plain biscuit doughs so you can layer them on top of each other. Start with the purple dough and then lay a plain dough right on top. Repeat this process until there is no more dough left. Stretch out the layered dough with a rolling pin to flatten the layers.

7. With a knife, cut directly down the middle of the layered dough and place it on top of each other. Next, cut a small section of the double layered dough, and roll it so the colors begin to twist into each other, wrapping the ends to create a circle.

8. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

9. Place the bagels onto a foiled cookie sheet, dress them with an egg wash and place them in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Once they’re done, take them out of the oven and let them cool. Then, slice them down the middle with a knife.

10. Take the lavender ice cream from the freezer and carefully place one scoop onto one slice of the bagel. Sprinkle lavender petals on top and top it off with the other slice of bagel. Serve immediately.
