I had difficulty deciding how to rate this, so decided to start with 0 stars and work my way up. I loved the idea. (I was curious about the ice cream!) (+1 star). I followed this recipe to a "T", and really enjoyed making them (+1 star), and was quite surprised I did not run into any of the problems listed by other reviewers, such as spreading, messy jam, or sticky dough, or having to add exta flour or milk. Simply awesome and fun to make! (+2 stars). When they were finally in the oven, both my hubby and I were so excited. They looked good and smelled GREAT! (+1 for 5/5). I watched them like a hawk because of others having trouble with baking all the way through. Not the case here. They turned out evenly browned and baked through (an added plus in my book when I can accomplish what others can't) (+1 for 6/5). And very fluffy and nice (+1 for 7/5). BUT When they cooled and were tasted, all the excitement dissipated quickly. They were quite bland(-3 for 4/5) -- until we added the icing sugar, which is not listed in the ingredients and should be. (-1 for 3/5) Not sure we will waste ice cream or money for this again. And for the calorie-wise -- 504 calores for 3 cookies?! That's almost 164 calories per cookie without the confectioners' sugar. Whipping cream and sugar (or maybe even Cool Whip?) might even be better -- at least it will be cheaper. Cool idea, though (No pun intended) -- and I'm always up for experimentation.:D
