No...these past couple days have been filled with the recipe hunt for, and creation, of my first Chinese Sponge Cake, making a surprise Alien birthday cake for my son, Kyle, who turned 8-years-old today, and the creation and execution of a pork chop dish (all of which will be in blogs to come).
However, today's blog will be about something completely different. Actually, it will not even be about something I baked. Today, in honor of my son, Kyle, turning 8-years-old today, he is the star of this blog. He has been watching me chronicle my kitchen adventures and wanted to be a part of it. So yesterday, while we were purchasing some last minute things for his birthday cake, he asked if he could make a treat for his father, and if I would put it in my blog. How could I deny such a fun and innocent request? So without further adieu...here is Kyle's captioned photo blog...
KYLE'S EASY CAKE MIX COOKIES AND ICE CREAM SANDWICHES
(Makes 22 cake mix cookies and 11 ice cream sandwiches)
- 1 box of cake mix (we used Pilsbury's Moist Deluxe Chocolate Cake)
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 pint ice cream, softened
- sprinkles, chopped nuts, jimmies
Then you whack the two eggs into the bowl.
Then put the oil in.
And then show off like you stirred it.
Scoop spoonfuls of batter (about a well-rounded tablespoon) and roll them into balls. This is my favorite part!
Smash them, not too hard, just kind of flat on a (ungreased) cookie pan (wax paper was put on because I let him use old cookie sheets). And after they're all done, you can lick the spoon. My other favorite part!
NOW THE FUN PART...ICE CREAM SANDWICHES!!!
Take a spoon of kinda melted (softened) ice cream onto one cookie.
Put another cookie on top and kind of smash them together. Not too hard or the ice cream comes out!
Then you roll them in sprinkles. I picked out Turtle Crunch for these.
You can stick them in the freezer. Or...eat them right away, like me!
You should make some today...my dad loved them!
