I’m sort of enamored with these cookies. You know why? Well, the short story has to deal with ice cream. See, if I had to pick just two ice cream flavors to eat the rest of my life (I know, the horror), they’d be:
- Pumpkin – everyone’s seasonal favorite
- Cookies ‘n Cream – my all-time, makes-everything-okay, favorite
