There are many ways to enjoy an ice cream sandwich, but the most elegant option may be Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches from Francois Payard.

The delicate meringue cookie surrounds fresh made ice cream or sorbet, which is perfect for a hot summer day when you don't want anything heavy. Flavors include Pistachio Raspberry, Chocolate, Coconut Mango and Strawberry Cheesecake. We tried a few recently and our favorite was the Strawberry Cheesecake, for the cheesecake ice cream's slightly savory tang mixing with the refreshing strawberry sorbet.

The Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches, which are $5 each, are available at the Francois Payard Bakery locations in Columbus Circle, Soho and Battery Park as well as the FP Patisseries at the Plaza Food Hall and on the Upper East Side.
