2006_08_food_icecrmsand.jpgNew York Magazine rounds up one of summer's sweetest treats -- the ice cream sandwich. Forget about the tasteless, mass-produced blocks from your childhood, we're talkin' high end sandwiches, with high end cookies (think Jacques Torres chocolate chunk) filled with rich gelato in a range of flavors. Try One Girl Cookies' version of a whoopie pie filled with il Laboratorio's ricotta gelato, the brownie with fromage-blanc gelato from Ruby et Violette, or pick your own flavor of Otto's sublime gelato and tuck it into a fluffy brioche.

We will admit, we have a soft spot in our heart for Carvel's flying saucers, but we realize that its likely more based on nostalgia than actual flavor. Where do you get your ice cream sandwiches?
