So here in the south.. it's hot out. like all day long.
like still 88 degrees after 9pm hot.
of COURSE, a SMART mom would find nice cold treats to give her kids... ones that do not require turning an oven on, perhaps. BUT... cookies are what I do best... and it really is something that my kids can help out with.
The other day we made a small batch of chocolate cookies, and my daughter rhena insisted on making some ice cream cookies.
We had a good time decorating them with sprinkles and the such. The ones the kids did didn't quite turn out as 'real' looking.... but they sure were colorful. here's one that I was allowed to do without 'help'.
the best part? they're pretty portable after the icing dries, and no matter what side of the cookie my daughter eats first.. no dripping!!!
