A Warm Sunday Afternoon….

 So far it’s been an unusually warm Spring (talking Toronto standard). Maybe it’s the weather or maybe it’s just our rumbling bellies but we were really in the mood for some ice cream. Using leftover cookie dough from our peanut butter cookie button experiment, we mashed together a rough idea for Banana Split Ice cream Sandwiches! Woo!

What you’ll need:
Peanut Butter Cookie Mix (or any cookie really)
PC Banana Split Ice cream
Whipped Cream
Bib (optional)

We made the cookie size slightly bigger than the button size… but you can make them as big as you want. Once we pulled them from the oven we flattened the cookie down so it was consistent in thickness. Set them aside and let them cool.

 So obviously, the first step is to make a sandwich by using two cookies and a healthy amount of ice cream. Using a knife, smooth the ice cream out on the sides just to neaten it up a bit.

 Once that’s good, decorate the sides of the ice cream. You can do that by rolling it in a big pile of sprinkles. We just dumped a bunch out on foil and let it roll. Top with whipped cream and a cherry then Pow!

Eat with caution. Being that it was a bit of a humid day, our ice cream kind of got away from us… if you know what we mean. In hindsight, we probably should have pre-shaped our ice cream centers into patties and put them back in the freezer over night. We were obviously too excited to eat these puppies to think logically. Once we formed the sandwich there was very little time before it started to melt. Basically, the colder the ice cream the better.
