Ice Cream Sugar Cookies, W/A Twist.

Good Tuesday everyone! I have so been enjoying this beautiful and cool spring weather.

I finally got to see Hannah Montana. I absolutely loved it! The music was very well done, and yes I was singing in the theater. Seriously, it is hard not too. I won't say anymore in case some of you guys haven't seen it, but I can't wait to go see it again! I loved the addition of Rascal Flatts and Taylor Swift. Guh, I love Taylor Swift's music.

I love sugar cookies. Soft and gooey sugar cookies with a glass of milk, yum. I will have to be pulled away to stop eating. We love this sugar cookie recipe we got from a friend. They are so simple to make but they are the best tasting sugar cookie I've had homemade. I thought why not add ice cream to these and make them ice cream sandwich cookies with sprinkles? Mmmm, they are delicious. Any kind of ice cream though I bet would be tasty in these, I am thinking of chocolate.....



Sugar Ice-Cream Cookies
Ingridents:
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 well beaten egg yolks
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cream of tarter
4 cups of vanilla ice cream (or half of a 1.75 qt. of ice cream)
Colored sprinkles
DIRECTIONS:Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar. Add yolks, mix well. Add flour, soda, and tarter. Add vanilla. Roll into balls. Dip in sugar. Bake for 9 minutes. Cool. Take 2 cookies, on one side spread ice cream. Top with other cookie. Roll in sprinkles. Eat right away or cover with Saran Wrap and freeze.
**To keep these soft and chewy, make sure you put them in foil or cover them - they harden quickly. Also, do "not" overbake these for this recipe, hard sugar cookies in an ice cream sandwich doesn't taste good! Underbake them a little.**

I have been going thru pictures from when I was born until now. I need pictures for my collage for my party this weekend. My parents had 6 babies at one point or another....I didn't win cutest baby out of us kids. I was chubby, red, and had a double chin. My little sister Anna took the title for cutest baby. I was very weird then, and I still am. I am also a known clutz. I get injured often.
Some people in life have everything in perfect order and in tact, I have never been one of them. Don't think I ever will.






This week and weekend is hectic crazy so I won't be seeing you guys until Monday. I've got lots of things to still do before my party this weekend....not to mention our church's first Softball game is this Friday evening. I'll be back with lots of pictures and another tasty recipe! See you next week!

Sugar Cookie Mix Banana Bread.

Happy Friday everyone! It is a beautiful summer day and I am looking forward to heading out with my family for dinner and to the theater. So this is going to be a quick post.

We had some very ripe bananas on the counter that needed to be used up so I took my banana recipe and tweaked it. Instead of adding a chocolate cake mix I added a sugar cookie mix and some milk. Yum, the sugar cookie mix adds a wonderful flavor. This makes lots of batter so I would suggest not pouring it all into the 13x9 inch pan. Maybe make some cupcakes with the rest. I made the mistake of using all the batter in the pan and it takes forever to bake and turns overcooked slighty.


Sugar Cookie Mix Banana Bread
Ingredients:
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. vanilla
3 medium bananas, ripe and smashed
5 tbsp. sour cream
1 (17.5 oz) sugar cookie mix
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 in pan (and a muffin pan). Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and mix well. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt together and add to creamed mixture. Add vanilla, bananas, sour cream, and cookie mix. Mix very well. Pour into greased baking pan and muffin tin. Bake for 45 minutes or until ready.

Graduation party date has been set. Invitations have been mailed. Decorations, food, and all the fun stuff is coming now. Choices.

This is the picture we used for the invitations....maybe it is just me but I do not really care for this picture of myself. But since the world doesn't revolve around me (what?!) I didn't say anything. And knowing myself, I always critque pictures of people way too much...so ignore me.


Enjoy a beautiful weekend! Busy weekend ahead, picture time for us 6 kids and my Senior Pics tomorrow! See you with some more yummy food soon!
