Why serve ice cream in a regular bowl when you can serve it in an edible gluten free cookie bowl? These cookie bowls hold lots of cold ice cream, so what isn’t to love?
My kids are really good about sticking to a gluten free diet. They never cheat. Ever.
I often wondered if they missed ice cream cones and other edible bowls that we see other kids eat. We were shopping at Michael’s for school project supplies this past week. In our Michael’s, we have to walk by the cake supplies section to get to the clay and other arts and crafts. My daughter noticed a tin to make cookie bowls…so I couldn’t resist buying it.
If you are looking for ice cream ideas to fill your delicious gluten free cookie bowls, try some of these frozen treats.
(This is what the cookie tin looked like. It is made by Wilton.) I decided to buy this and we gave it a try the very next day.
We made a cookie dough a little stiffer than usual so it would be easier to mold around the bowl-shaped humps.
It was messy pressing the cookie dough around the humps. (**In hindsight, I would have made the bottoms flat so they rested flatter on the plate.)
My cookie bowls may not win any awards for beauty or symmetry, but my kids loved them with their favorite ice cream, mint chip. We will definitely use this tin a lot this summer.
