Add-on to Cookies?
I love making these cookies:
But cookies seem too simple to serve as a desert to guests after a nice meal. They can't compare to tiramisu, crème brule, cheese cake or even brownies with ice cream.
Is there any way to make these slightly more elegant. I was thinking about making a milk shake, but it seems too separate.
Make them in bar form and serve with ice cream just the way you would a brownie. You could also crumble and layer them with ice cream or pudding for a parfait.
just serve with coffee, milk, or a blended frozen drink. i think it's perfect. i love cookies, and guests who would complain about getting cookies, maybe they should get no dessert, and instead a cheese plate to go with their "whine".
I love a cookie and ice cream assortment. I would also enjoy the milkshake and cookie combo you mention -- just make the shake petite. It is not too separate it you serve the shake glass and cookies on the same plate.
I agree with the half-dipped in chocolate, but to gild the lily further, I've then added a bit of edible silver-leaf (from India store) onto the chocolate. Beautiful and edible. I've done this for Christmas for several years.
Thanks for all the replies. I like all the ideas. I will make one batch (cookies and bars) and try all the different ideas:
