From TOH magazine--I haven't tried it yet, but it appears to be a sort of ice cream sandwich made with lemon and blueberry shortcake. A refreshing, summery treat! Time doesn't include the hour or so freezing time.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, poppy seeds, lemon peel, and salt.

  6. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 8-10 times. Pat out to a 3/4-inch thickness.
