Chonky Boys: The Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches that Scream Summer!

Featuring my thick and nuggy Chonky Boy Chocolate Chip Cookies, these ice cream sandwiches are the stuff that summer dreams are made of.  If you've ever had the Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich at Disneyland , you are going to LOVE these! 

These big and bold chocolate chip cookies are based on a recipe from my culinary school studies at Auguste Escoffier, but with a few modifications to give them that Jennuine touch.  They make the perfectas book for a fat slice of real vanilla bean ice cream.  And those mini chips?  You just gotta have that extra cronch!

Thank goodness this recipe only makes 8 sandwiches, otherwise I would be eating them for breakfast lunch and dinner.  This way, my big family can help save me from my inner child diet-saboteur.

VINTAGE PAPER DOLLS ~ FREE PDF ~ PART II ~ a wardrobe upgrade from The Graphics Fairy!

I was catching up with some of my favorite blogs today, which of course means spending some time with The Graphics Fairy.  I was delighted to find that she and I both have one of the same darling little paper dolls in our collections.  I decided to repost my free paper doll PDF and include a link to The Graphics Fairy so that anyone with this Paper Doll can have the full wardrobe (I believe hers is a Gaucho costume and is simply too flippin' cute!). 

A few years ago I spotted these charming vintage paper dolls at an antique store in Santa Rosa. Not wanting to "impulse shop", I left them behind; only to find that I couldn't get them out of my head. Fortunately, my little brother was living in Santa Rosa at the time and was sweet enough to pick them up and mail them to me.

At the time I had so many plans for the darling quartet of paper people, but I soon became preoccupied by two real life baby dolls (my daughter Madeleine, followed by her sister Max, three years later). So the paper dolls have taken up permanent residence in my ephemera box, patiently awaiting their debut. While sorting through ephemera for recent inspiration, I came across the paper dolls and realized they were just to special to keep boxed up and all to myself.

I've scanned them in and created a nice little PDF download for you to use as you wish ~ clipart, cards, decoupage, invitations, etc... I hope you'll enjoy this free set of Vintage Paper Dolls. If you use them in a project, please share your pictures, or post a comment to share your inspiration and creativity. ~ Jenn
