The Cookie Department stole my heart. Seriously, look it up. It’s a thing. I was able to get a hold of the company’s cookies: the full throttle vegan sweet potato oatmeal cranberry cookie. If you find yourself feeling ill, eat these. They are said to be “fully functional” and I’m corny as hell because I was so happy after eating just one, hahah! When I received my package I quickly tried one and thought, “Damn, these are soft”. AND ME BEING A FLUFFY VEGAN…I loved it. I admire soft cookies, they are like the pillows that take me to sleep at night. They’re that good. Now they just need more vegan flavors! Maybe a vegan flavor of each kind would be short of amazing. And I would buy them all!
I decided to make some ice cream cookies because those two words, ICE CREAM + COOKIES, have been on my foodie bucket list for a while. *mentally crosses it out*
I made these for me and my best friend. It was his birthday and we didn’t get the time to see each other beforehand so I drove to his house waaaay past our bedtime and handed him a sammie (cookie sandwich) and some croissant samosas(didn’t get time to picture) and a his big wrapped present. Oh he ate this cookie like crazy! Even though it was so cold, he ate this within 5 minutes. *success *thank you Cookie Department
You’re probably wondering how this tower was made. Well let me tell ya, I don’t really need to write down a recipe, because half of it I didn’t produce anyway (and I wouldn’t want it any other way).
The ingredients: 3 frozen bananas, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1/2 cup of cranberries, and chocolate to cover, kinda. You blend all of that, except chocolate, and place in a round container that is similar to the cookie’s circumference. Leave it in the freezer overnight or until they are firm enough to handle for more than 5 minutes without melting! I shaved off the sides of the ice cream once I took it out so that I can get the cranberries to show. You don’t have to do this.
These two cookies work well with this ice cream. I put more cranberries but feel free to omit them. It kind of tastes like heaven, though. I am horrible at describing food, I use heaven for everything. Serious.
I guess this is more of a personal post than anything I’ve ever written on here, and I kinda like it! I’ve been wanting to do more personal posts because I forget that I can virtually do anything with this blog and I have been accustomed to filtering out my personal life because I had only found that I would find someone’s blog to get one thing: the recipe. Doing more personal posts would help me take off the “share memories of everything” on my bucket list. Hmm, we’ll see where this goes!
Thanks for stopping by!
