Hello friends! It’s Amber here to share another fun idea with you! The scorching temperatures of summer are on the way! Here in Miami, we are already feeling the sweltering heat of the sun and it will only get hotter! As much as I love a cool ice cream sundae on a hot summer day, I don’t love the sticky drips of melted ice cream running down my hand. Today’s project will solve your drippy ice cream woes…and it’s uber cute to boot. Now, I wish I could take full credit for this idea, but I must give all credit to the nice lady I chatted with while in line at Crate & Barrel. She was planning an ice cream party and told me about the ice cream scoop cookies that she would be making. As soon as I heard her idea, I knew I had to share it with you!
- Scoop the cookie dough just as you would ice cream; using a repeated scraping motion. This will create those realistic scallops in the scoop.
- Freeze your dough before baking. I always do this with any shaped cookie, but it’s especially important with these large scoops. Once frozen, the dough will keep it’s shape well during baking.
- Add a little food coloring to your dough for different “flavors”
- An “extra-large” spring loaded scoop will yield the perfect sized scoops for these Ice Cream Cups from The TomKat Shop
The new ice cream cups are the perfect way to present these ice cream cookies! I simply sat the cookie scoop atop the cup and added some twine and a cute little tag. These are almost to cute to eat! Almost.
