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

Image
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.

CRANBERRY UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE -- A PERFECT CHRISTMAS DESSERT


I've been trying to manage my time a little better lately, and as a result I had the opportunity this past week to visit the blogs of some of the creative and talented people out there.  

I was thrilled to have come across a post by Lisa at "The Pursuit of Happiness" where she shared her recipe for Cranberry Upside-down Cake (adapted from a Cooking Light).  We were having dinner with friends on Sunday, and the festive cake sounded like just the perfect sweet treat to bring. I got an extra surprise when my husband offered to do the baking!  He doubled the recipe and baked it in a 12" round cake pan lined with parchment.  

It came out beautifully.  The cranberries glistened like ruby-red Christmas baubles.  The cake was absolutely delicious!  Because we doubled the recipe, each family was able to take some cake home for the next day.  My husband and I enjoyed ours with our coffee in the morning.

Whether you're looking for an easy and elegant cake for a holiday dessert, or for a little something sweet for brunch, this is a recipe that I highly recommend.  To get the recipe, visit HERE.  Enjoy!
