Tiny Treats

Remember the sleeve of Trader Joe’s lemon cookies I took to the meeting to supplement my disaster cookies? Well, the reason I had them was because on a previous shopping trip I was overtaken by ravenousness and bought some strawberry Greek yogurt. I had never tried Greek yogurt before but I didn’t have a spoon to eat it with. Lemon cookies seemed like a good utensil. Way to be resourceful, stomach. Holy cow! Dipping the cookies in the yogurt was like some impossibly sugary and tart chip-n-dip experience. It was delectable.

I wanted to try the cookies with ice cream, and since they’re hard to dip, they crumble wonderfully over a scoop in a dish. I wondered how they’d do in an ice-cream cookie situation.

Assemble the troops! Tiny cookies need a tiny scoop.

I held off eating the cookies until I had the ice cream.

Press down on cookie.

Too much pressure too fast.





Mmmmmmm….. crunchy cookie and cold ice cream. Delicious.

That’s not what we’re here for, though. Assemble the rest, pressing down with more than one finger to try not to break them, then realize that breaking them is not a big deal.

These are all one serving. Together.

Into a freezer bag for a day or so.

Vacuum-sealed by sucking out the air.

Yes, they got ice-cream-sandwich-like. The cookie softened up and the whole thing was lovely. The problem? A cookie is only two bites.

I need to go to Trader Joe’s…….

    Mmm… Those look delicious. And yet another good breakfast idea. It has fruit in it. It’s got to be good for you…

    Ice cream should be served at every meal!

    Yummy! I’m on my way to the grocery store…let’s see what combination hits me. Sometimes I just freeze double stuffed Oreos. I don’t remember if they freeze, freeze or just get icy cold…but I like them.
