...other than milk

Looking for some interesting combos!

  1. My family enjoys ice cream between two cc cookies. Right now their favorite combo is salted caramel between two cookies. But, good quality vanilla bean ice cream is great too!

    Sometimes we melt bittersweet chocolate in our fondue pot and dip the cookies.

    And recently we tried using a cc cookie in the bottom of each cupcake paper and poured cheesecake batter over each and baked until just firm for a riff on mini cheesecakes. The cc chip worked quite well with chocolate cheesecake batter.

    1. Fresh, sliced or diced peaches. Sprinkle with a little sugar first (not too much) and toss to bring out the juices.

      1. Fresh fruit salad with some sweet sauce to dip the cookies in. Sugared strawberries make a nice syrup in just a few minutes. Or melon with a little honey and lime juice drizzled over them.

        1. Raw chocolate chip cookie dough in between.

            1. A glass of milk, plate of warm, freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, paired with a DVD of Dudley Moore's "Arthur."

              1. How about we add my mouth? Chocolate chip cookies sound really good right now and I don't have any chips.

                1. When I have left over dipping chocolate I dip one side of the cookie, even if all I have is the relatively high end bagged ones. A little Callebaut on the bottom makes em even better.

                  I like the ice cream between two also. Want to take it too far? Dip the whole thing in chocolate.

                  Did I mention I like chocolate?

                  Oh you could probably use them as a crust for lemon bars, too. I like lemon curd, too. ;)
