You know that old saying, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade? Well, I made a Chocolate Cookie recipe wrong and so I made these easy Ice Cream sandwiches. Best mistake I ever made.
The girls are back doing their summer baking project again this year. They’ve figured out it’s a great way to make money for the extra things they might need. This year, Cassie’s using her money for Band Camp and Grace will use her’s to purchase her instrument for band.
I like it because it’s something we can do together, it get’s us out and about once a week. The businesses we go to love it and actually make requests for cookies and above all, it’s teaching them to work for what they want or need.
Our local back is one of their best customers. All year they ask when the girls will be selling again. Those ladies love the Cake Mix Cookies. I think because it’s so easy for the girls to make different flavors. If you can find cake mix on sale, it’s a pretty good profit too.
I don’t know what I was thinking but instead of verifying the ingredients with the girls, I told them the recipe from memory. When the cookies came out of the oven they were large flat disks. Still soft and tasty, just not what the bank ladies would be expecting.
After baking up the second tray and eating 2 or 3 cookies with a glass of milk, we realized these would be perfect for ice cream sandwiches. And they were. Cassie and I created an assembly line to put them together and the dog was right there at our feet to clean up any sprinkles that made it to the floor.
I’m sharing at some of these great parties.
