Textured with dried fig and chock full of ginger, this is an ice cream sandwich with a difference.
Pre-heat oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large mixing bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl add butter and sugar and mix until the mixture is light and creamy.
Add egg to butter mixture and blend again to combine.
Add the blended mixture to the prepared dry ingredients and mix through dried fruit.
Fold mixture until well combined.
Divide into 16 equal balls and place on baking tray.
Flatten each ball with the back of a teaspoon and bake for 12 minutes.
Remove when golden brown on top and slightly soft to touch.
While cookies are cooling, gently melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a saucepan of boiling water.
When cookies are completely cool to touch, scoop a heaped tablespoon of Kāpiti Gingernut Ice Cream onto the bottom side of one, sandwich together with another, sprinkle with crushed freeze dried raspberries and dunk half into chocolate.
Transfer to a baking paper lined tray and place into the freezer for one hour before serving.
