There’s something yummy in my freezer that’s slowly disappearing! I baked a batch of chewy gingersnap cookies with my daughter Sabrina one weekend and ate some freshly baked ones for Merienda. We had a couple of cookies left over, so the next day, I decided to turn them into ice cream cookie sandwiches! All I had to do was place a scoop of ice cream on one cookie, top with another cookie then squeeze gently. I stored them in the freezer for a yummy treat that Sabrina’s friends can enjoy the next time they visit.

Making desserts at home can be easy and stress free-they don’t need to be tedious or facy. You can make a good dessert using easy-to-find ingredients as well. In this case, I was able to make a new dessert using the cookies I had on hand with the simple addition of ice cream.

Feel free to use whatever ice cream flavor you fancy. You can even throw some fruits and nuts into softened ice cream, mix well then freeze again before using it with the cookies. You can make all the components ahead of time and each can be stored for days-even weeks-then served as needed. In this case, Sabrina will probably need them for her friends. I hope they leave one for me!
