Frosted Animal Cookie Ice Cream And Cookies

Just looking at frosted animal cookies flashes me back to my childhood. They were always a treat because we didn’t have them all the time. There’s something about that sugary goodness that makes them rather addictive - it’s a good thing they’re so little, right?

So let’s get creative today and turn those cute snacks into a pretty amazing dessert. All you’ll need for frosted animal cookie ice cream and cookies are a bag of animal cookies, a container of vanilla ice cream and a package of pre-cut sugar cookie dough. 

Let’s start with the ice cream - it can be setting up while you bake the cookies. Set the ice cream out on the counter for a few minutes, until it’s soft but not soupy. Scoop half the ice cream into another container and let them continue to soften a little. While you wait, fill a plastic bag with frosted animal cookies and crush them into fairly small pieces. Pour as many cookie crumbs as you want into the softened ice cream and stir to combine. Put the ice cream back in the freezer to set while you bake the cookies.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and very lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Crush more frosted animal cookies in a plastic bag and pour the crumbs into a small bowl. Warm each piece of pre-cut dough in your hand for a moment, then roll it in the crumbs. Reform into a ball and arrange 12 on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes, until the edges have just turned brown. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes before transferring the cookies onto a cooling rack. Serve ice cream and cookies together, with a couple of frosted cookies for decoration.
