Good Thursday everyone!! I am practically jumping out of my old computer seat dying to share my latest cookie with you A week or so ago as I was making the boys an ice cream shake, I started thinking…..hmmm I wonder how vanilla ice cream would work out in chocolate chip cookies? Well, can I just tell you it worked, and it’s over the top INCREDIBLE! I used a creamy all natural vanilla ice cream by Breyers.
Recently, there had been a lot of talk about Girl Scout cookies, and those sweet, little girls standing at tables with stacks of cookie boxes are pretty hard to turn down. Everyone has a favorite Girl Scout cookie. I’ve always liked the Do-Si-Dos and Samoas, but the hands-down most popular has to be the Thin Mint.
Few things are worthy of a quest. The Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant and the Fountain of Youth? No.
These sugar cookies are similar to the Lofthouse sugar cookies you get at the grocery store.
Back in high school I remember my mother trying out a fat free/sugar free cheesecake recipe she had found. That was the first time I had ever tasted cheesecake, so to be honest, I remember thinking it wasn't half bad - keep in mind I had nothing to compare it to! Then The Cheesecake Factory came to town and with one simple taste of their full fat/full sugar worth every calorie and gram of fat cheesecake, my mind was changed forever!

There is something uniquely heart warming about freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
