the story of the ice cream sandwich.

Friday, April 29, 2016

 This is what happens.

After you send your sixteen year old a text requesting his cookie choice.  
I've made ice cream sandwiches before.  But not for a while.
And when I looked back to find the recipe we love,  the link had been removed.  (ack!)
So, I found a new recipe.  Made the cookie.
Piled delicious ice cream on half of the delicious cookie.  
Placed the other half on top of the ice cream.
Popped them back in the freezer to harden.
And made a big delicious mess when I cut them.
Then I froze each delicious mess in its own paper sandwich bag for a warmer day.

The kids rated them a 10.  I would like to find one with a softer cookie, like the last recipe.  This is the one we will try next.

Happy weekend! xx

**UPDATE!  A very awesome Abelian (Dot) found the old link!  Thank you, Abelien!**

  2. You're a great Mom. I can hear the stories down the road "My mom was the best. She used to bake whatever we wanted - and she was a great baker!" :) I especially like that they were rated a 10 out of 10.

    P.S. Did you get help bringing the groceries in?

    2. You're welcome! The Internet Archive is a wonderful place - a nonprofit that keeps snapshots of billions of websites (unless the site's code requests it not be saved). All you need do is copy the old broken URL into your clipboard, go to

      http://archive.org/web/web.php

      and paste the URL into the search box. If they have the page, you'll get a calendar showing the dates it was saved; just choose one. The Archive is also a great place to find lost knitting patterns.

  4. The stored cookies might soften in the freezer. I have made ice cream sandwiches with oatmeal cookies and chocolate chip cookies but none made it to save for later.
