Sundaes and Spoon Cookies

Posted by Brette in Food

The dessert of the month in July Martha Stewart Living is Vanilla-Raspberry Sundaes with Spoon-Shaped Cookies. I must admit, I ignored this recipe for weeks. There’s not much baking involved – just some cookies. The rest is assembling a sundae. And I have to confess, I thought the spoon cookies were stupid. So I ignored, but finally I gave in and made it.

I cut out the template, but the middle part where it curves in felt like it was too thin, so I wanted to make them a bit bigger. As you can tell, I’m not very talented at cutting things out of dough without a template!

I baked the cookies and then once they were cool, assembled the sundaes. I used strawberry sorbet instead of raspberry. Make sure you let your ice cream and sorbet soften a bit before you scoop it so you can get it to smush together.

They actually did work and I liked the taste of the sundae with the cookie. This was yummy and really a very easy dessert to make.  Nice one, Martha!
