Lemon-Lime Ice Cream Sandwiches

12 crisp butter waffle cookies
4 oz best quality bittersweet chocolate, melted
8 oz mascarpone cheese
2/3 cup lemon or lime curd
Zest of 1 lemon or lime, finely grated
1/2 cup salted pistachios, finely chopped

Place waffle cookies on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Paint tops with melted chocolate. Set aside.

In a chilled mixing bowl, beat mascarpone with the lemon or lime curd and zest.

Spread chopped pistachios on a plate. Arrange half of the cookies, chocolate side up, on the baking sheet and spoon the cream onto the cookies. Top with remaining cookies, chocolate side down, pressing down until the cream oozes to the sides. Roll cookie edges in the pistachios.

Freeze at least 2 hours; may be frozen up to 1 week.
