"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."

"These were yummy but cookie got a

little hard...going to bake them a little less next time so it can be eaten a little easier."

"I was careful to watch that the cookie cups did not overbrown, but they turned out rather hard -- too hard to be eaten with the ice cream as a cookie. We did love the flavor of the coffee ice cream and chocolate syrup though."

"I can't believe all the uproar over someone possibly "stealing" a recipe; moreover an eleven year old. Food brings families together and great times...recipe's are made for sharing. Get over it! It's a great recipe regardless of where it came from and it has made people happy. Congrats on winning!"

"Loved the idea, instead of cookie dough, I had a recipe to make cookies out of a brownie mix which I altered a bit so I was able to roll the dough out and put in the muffin cups. I then used just plain vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce on and I also used frozen strawbery yogurt. My kids loved them. I'm even thinking of trying them in my mini muffin pan and have a variety of ice creams in. I'll still try it with the chocolate chip cookie dough too!"
