Ice Cream Sundae Cookies :: Creative Recipe Idea

Ice Cream Sundae Cookies by Amber of Damask Love

Hello friends! It’s Amber here to share another fun idea with you! The scorching temperatures of summer are on the way! Here in Miami, we are already feeling the sweltering heat of the sun and it will only get hotter! As much as I love a cool ice cream sundae on a hot summer day, I don’t love the sticky drips of melted ice cream running down my hand. Today’s project will solve your drippy ice cream woes…and it’s uber cute to boot. Now, I wish I could take full credit for this idea, but I must give all credit to the nice lady I chatted with while in line at Crate & Barrel. She was planning an ice cream party and told me about the ice cream scoop cookies that she would be making. As soon as I heard her idea, I knew I had to share it with you!

  • Scoop the cookie dough just as you would ice cream; using a repeated scraping motion. This will create those realistic scallops in the scoop.
  • Freeze your dough before baking. I always do this with any shaped cookie, but it’s especially important with these large scoops. Once frozen, the dough will keep it’s shape well during baking.
  • Add a little food coloring to your dough for different “flavors”
  • An “extra-large” spring loaded scoop will yield the perfect sized scoops for these Ice Cream Cups from The TomKat Shop

The new ice cream cups are the perfect way to present these ice cream cookies! I simply sat the cookie scoop atop the cup and added some twine and a cute little tag. These are almost to cute to eat! Almost.

    Okay Amber, these may be the cutest things EVER! Great job and I love the TomKat cups 🙂

    • Amber Kemp-Gerstel says:

      Tina! I am so happy that you love these as much as I do! I can’t bring myself to give them away! Right now, they are sitting on my craft desk as decoration! LOL!

  2. These…are…awesomesauce! Any type of cookie recipe that doesn’t require cutters or mad skills is number 1 in my book. The book of ‘I can’t make decent cookies’.

  3. These are adorable! Such a cute idea for summer parties. I look forward to making these.

    I am absolutely in love this! What an awesome idea and even if you can’t take all the credit for the idea you can take all the credit for the incredible execution. I am totally doing this for my son’s birthday in a couple weeks. Thanks, Amber!

    • Amber Kemp-Gerstel says:

      Hi Lindsey! I am so excited that you’ll be putting this project to use for your son’s birthday!

    This so cute!! Something I definitely have to try. I’m loving those cups.

  6. I cannot believe how much this looks like real ice-cream!! Especially with summer right around the corner, this is such a fun idea. And what a beautiful presentation!

    These are adorable! I would love to make them for my daughter’s birthday party. Do you use a specific cookie recipe that doesn’t spread? When I make cookies, the cookie spreads and doesn’t keep the scoop shape.

    • Amber Kemp-Gerstel says:

      Hi Abbey!

      The recipe that I use is from a book called The Flour Pot Cookie Cookbook. It’s the only recipe I use for sugar cookies! Works perfectly for this project!
