Step 1

Combine sugar, butter, juices, egg and yolk in a saucepan. Cook and stir on medium until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Do not boil. Let stand until cool. Place plastic wrap directly on surface to prevent skin from forming. Chill for about 2 hours until cold.

Beat cream and liqueur until soft peaks form. Fold into orange mixture.

Place 8 wafers on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Spoon half of orange mixture over wafers. Top with wafers. Spoon remaining orange mixture over second layer of wafers. Break remaining two wafers into quarters and place 1 piece over each sandwich. Freeze for one hour.

Just before serving, dust with cocoa powder.
