Lemon Basil Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

If you've made a mint chocolate chip ice cream before, this recipe follows the same basic procedure. But while mint leaves are usually steeped in the cream for upwards of an hour or two before getting strained out, basil benefits more from a short initial steeping before getting blended into the base.

Did you know that the ice cream sandwich was invented in the early 1900s, as a sanitary solution for serving ice cream on hot summer days? Well, times have changed since then—society and freezers have both evolved, and instead of sandwiching our ice cream between cookie wafers, we now have the ability to serve it between layers of another modern marvel, the Pop-Tart.
