Grilled Apricot Ice Cream in Homemade Waffle Bowls

Summer is in full swing! I hope everyone is celebrating today with The 3 F’s – friends, family, and food. We sure are! We still have a month before school is back in session and we are taking advantage of everyday!

I’ve got some scrumptious Apricot Ice Cream and Homemade Waffle Bowls just waiting for a meet up!

Aren’t these just beautiful?

Pizzelle Cookies are easy to make and so delicious. I love them during the holidays.

I tried a few different ways to shape the bowls. The first thing I tried was shaping them over a lemon. This proved difficult because the cookie is very hot and most of them looked like a Tri-pointed hat. The more “frilly” looking bowls were made this way. I thought they were pretty, unique, and very feminine.

Then I got a dessert bowl. This is just a small one cup bowl that I pushed the hot cookie into and let it harden. This provided a more distinct bowl shape and didn’t burn my fingers.

I loved how they turned out.

They were so pretty with the flower design in the middle.

Playing off the brown sugar and honey in the ice cream, I decided to make some brown sugar almond crunchies and honey to it. I liked snacking on the extra crunchies just bu themselves. I’m sure they would be yummy on a spinach salad with Mandarin oranges. So not healthy, but so good!

Ingredients

For the Pizzelle Cookies

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup melted butter, allow time to cool
  • 1 Tbls vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • powdered sugar for dusting (If you're just making the cookies)

For the Brown Sugar Almonds

  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup almond slivers

Instructions

For the Pizzelle Cookies

  1. Preheat your Betty Crockeriron as directed.
  2. Combine all ingredients until batter is smooth
  3. Drop a heaping tablespoon of batter onto the rear half iron and close.
  4. Cook for about 30 seconds and then carefully remove and cool on a wire rack.
  5. Lay flat on a cooling rack for cookies. Once cooled, dust the cookies with some powered sugar.
  6. For bowls, press down into a small dessert bowl to cool and harden. Remove when ready.
  7. Keep in a sealed container until ready to use.

For the Brown Sugar Almonds

  1. Place half your brown sugar into a small fry pan, over medium low heat and melt it. Continually stir it with a spatula. As soon as it's melted, add in the almond slivers. You want enough almonds to get coated in the brown sugar. Remove from heat. Add a bit more brown sugar to coat the almonds and provide a granular texture. Transfer to a cookie sheet to completely cool.
  2. Break up into small chunks and sprinkle over your ice cream.
  3. Top the ice cream with a bit of honey for a little extra sweetener.
  4. Enjoy your summer.
