I've got to be honest. I'm pretty excited about this. Dessert may turn into an appetizer.
I used this recipe for the cookies from Two Tarts and man are they de.li.cous! This is definitely my new go to Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. However, I did omit the extra sprinkle of salt on top... mostly because I forgot.
And here is the vanilla ice cream recipe:
1 quart half-and-half
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
small pinch of salt
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until the sugar is dissolved. Pour into ice cream machine and mix until soft serve consistency. Transfer to a freezer safe dish with a lid and freeze until hardened.
Add all of that to a meal of hamburgers, sausages, corn and watermelon and I think we just might have the perfect afternoon. How are you celebrating this year?
