I'm desperately clinging onto summer. Our kids go back to school this week, and soon the weather will turn chilly. I'm just not ready yet.
So before we trade in our swimsuits for snow boots, let's pause (paws) and make some fun, cat-faced ice cream sandwiches.
Why cats? Because the Dennelers are cat people. (Not that we're not dog people. We love dogs too. Just other people's dogs. In other people's houses. In fact, now that I think about it, I'm not that crazy about a cat in my house either. But I put up with it because my kids wanted a pet, and I'm not about to deprive them of the joy. So, I guess you could say I'm a cat tolerator.)
Wait..... Where was I? Oh, that's right: Cool Cats.
Wanna know the best part about these cat-shaped ice cream sandwiches? No baking or heating up your house. All you have to do is buy soft sugar cookies in the bakery section of the grocery store and make one cut with a round cookie cutter on top. Then decorate the faces, and sandwich some ice cream in between. The purrrrrfect summer-savoring treat.
Of course, I couldn't make only white and black cats. I had to make a calico version. Because we're not just cat people, we're calico cat people. (Meow, meow, meow and meow.)
