Coffee Ice Cream Cookie Cups
"I’m 11 years old, have six brothers and sisters, and we’re always looking for new ice cream recipes. I invented this for my sister’s birthday party, and everyone had compliments and wanted more," writes Marcus Dooley from Red Oak, Texas. "I’ve also tried it with peanut butter cookie dough and different flavored ice creams, but I like coffee the best."
