This is a very simple ice cream cake, with Marie biscuits. It’s a delicious summer dessert that you can make with a couple of days in advance. I would suggest that you freeze it for at least 3 days in advance so the cookies can get softer. Some people like to dip the cookies in coffee and make a chocolate topping, maybe one day I’ll try it out! For this recipe, I used an 18 cm (diameter) springform pan. If you have a bigger pan you can just double this recipe. Tips: You should take it from the freezer 30 min prior to serving, so it isn’t very hard.


300 g of Marie biscuit
250 mL of heavy cream
3 egg whites
2 tbsp of sugar

For the topping:
3 egg yolks
¼ of sugar
½ cup of water
1 tbsp of butter
