Ice cream sandwich

What would August be without ice cream?

Well it was almost a massive tantrum (and trauma) yesterday - not I by the way - when we ran out of ice cream cones.

'oh' the drama.

Then I remembered something I'd seen the lovely Ina do back at the beginning of the year on one of her re-run programmes the eldest Boo and I had become so addicted too. Do you remember?

Ice cream wedged between two homemade chocolate chip cookies.

But alas I'd run out of eggs, so no super duper chocolate chip chunk cookies.

There was nothing left for it so I decided to improvise....................with homemade oat and raisin cookies.

The kids went mad for them and peace was restored once more at Tabiboo HQ - PHEW!

I have to say they were really rather yummy, especially as I made the oaty cookies first off and once they had cooled - for about five'ish' minutes - I then applied the ice cream.

Warm cookies and vanilla ice cream - delicious.

You should give it a go.
