it's no surprise that i LOVE my moms cooking! she's a fabulous cook and loves making sweet treats which we all surely enjoy! being so far from family (1000+ miles away) really makes it hard for me to enjoy her tasty cooking, though when she comes to visit she's always whipping up something new for us to try. she called me a few nights ago and told me that she turned her homemade peanut butter cookies into ice cream sandwiches. which i was eager to know more and pretty much craving them at this point. they're super simple and fairly quick to make. i haven't had one yet but i grew up on these cookies so i can only imaging what adding ice cream to them would taste like. hope you enjoy the recipes! so who's now hungry for ice cream sandwich this morning? because i surely am!
thank you so much mom for an awesome recipe! we miss ya (and your cooking too!) :)
