But, let's be honest. The 4th of July in Mississippi often falls on an uncomfortably hot, sticky day! The solution? Indulge in the most delicious ice cream sandwich you could ever imagine. It is the perfect marriage of cold, smooth ice cream with a rich, decadent cookie.
For those of us who are not so lucky, don't despair! Though they can't divulge all of their secrets, Sugaree's Bakery graciously shared a few of their tips and tricks for creating a perfect summer treat:
~ Bake or buy several soft chocolate cookies
~ Place one of the chocolate cookies upside down. Then, fill a round cookie cutter with your favorite ice cream (Sugaree's Bakery recommends Breyers). Remove the cutter so the ice cream is sitting on the chocolate cookie.
~ Top with your second chewy chocolate cookie and enjoy!
Hungry yet? What a delicious way to celebrate. We hope you, your friends and family enjoy a wonderful, safe 4th of July weekend!
