We All Scream for Ice Cream!

Who doesn't love ice cream?  It comes in so many flavors that you have to favor at least one.  It can be eaten in a bowl, a cone, on a stick, in pie or as a cake! Well, if you happen to be one of the few that doesn't care for ice cream (or are lactose intolerant), these cookies are for you, and ice cream fans alike.
I have been so smitten lately with all the adorable ice cream related cookies on facebook and blogs, that I've been itching to make my own.  It was such a fun cookie project!  I was only going to put faces on a few of them, but could not stop once I started :) I'm sort of attached to them now.
Did you notice the tiny ice cream cones?  They are actually marshmallows.  I dipped some in candy melts, and the others in leftover royal icing (pink, blue), added sprinkles and then topped each with a cherry (mini m&m).  I snatched this cute idea from the creative Kim, The Partiologist .  Check out her tutorial (and blog) right HERE. You'll be glad you did!
When I was a kid, my friend and I used to order two single scoops at Sav-on drug store and then put the one scoop on top of the other, tossing the extra, empty cone (wasteful, I know).  Our reasoning was that when you ordered one scoop you were given bigger scoops than when you ordered a double scoop, so we beat the system by ordering two single scoops and converting them to a generous double scoop:) We didn't waste any money because one scoop was 5 cents, and two was 10 cents.  I know, I'm ancient:)
If you'd like some ice cream cookies, simply make a batch of sugar cookie dough, and some royal icing.  Add some food coloring to the icing to make any "flavors" you'd like. Don't forget the sprinkles, and top with "cherries" too~regular and mini, red m&m candies.
Try some this summer; you don't have to worry about this ice cream melting:)

Have fun!

  11. We just went to the ice cream shop and it was $3 for one scoop! Good thing it is not 10 cents anymore or my hips might be wearing ice cream. The cookies are so so cute, I can't choose a favorite.

  27. Everything you do is unbelievable, but I think this is one of my favorites ever! I love the colors and textures and then to add that little pop with a darling face - everything just comes alive. I definitely need to get brave and try these some time.

  28. This is something my kids would love. Why haven’t I thought of this before after so many years of baking cookies?  Food crafts like this are exciting for me as I love baking cookies and using my creativity designing them. If you don’t want your ice cream to melt this summer, this is the perfect solution. I have to admit your designs are very imaginative.

  29. These are so, so, so, darling Sue! Great photography/styling as well! We used to go to the drugstore for ice cream when I was a kid as well but I never tried your technique of ordering 2 single cones...I'm sure you were right about getting more that way :)

    Blessings,

    Jenni

Hi Beki, I tried to leave a comment on your blog, but when the word recognition comes up (spam prevention), the whole word(s) is not visible, and so also, the space to type in the word is not available to type into. I just thought you would want to know so that it can be fixed, and you can receive comments. :)
