what to do with a large bag of cookies

  • b

My friend works in a bakery and I have a huge bag of cookies she gave to me becasue they could not sell them. Does anyone know of anything to make with cookies? I was thinking along the lines of Stale Bread = Bread pudding, but can't come up with anything to do with all these cookies. Maybe I'm crazy for thinking I can do anything with them and I should just buy a big jug of milk on the way home....

  1. I think that Jamie Oliver has a recipe for crushed up cookies in one of his might call for gingersnaps - do you have any of those? I'll look it up when I go home. Sort of like a quick dessert type thing I believe, nothing fancy.

    1. Depends on what kind of cookie. Plain chocolat & vanilla cookies could be used in rum balls, they could also be crushed & used as the crumb crust for a cheesecake or such

      1. Depends on cookie, but what about ice cream sandwiches?? Put semi-softened ice cream of choice btwn. two cookies, roll in nuts or chips if you like, wrap each tightly in few layers of plastic wrap. Store in freezer and eat when you like...not sure how long these keep before cookies taste off, but they don't last long when I've made them :)

        1. Right, should have mentioned what kind. They are chocolate chip cookies with chocolate drizzled on top. Icecream sandwiches sound like a really good idea!

          1. I like the idea of ice cream sandwiches, but if for some reason that doesn't work out, take 'em to work and make friends...or donate them to a soup kitchen/senior citizen's center.

            Of course, the 'jug of milk' idea has merit, too!
