Chocolate Chip Cookies & Ice Cream Petite Pies

The Cookie Monster

Happy Friday!  I thought I'd share some photos from our after school snack a couple of days ago.  I had intended to take some really pretty photos of this cookie topped with ice cream, but as you can see, there was no stopping Emma.  She was so funny and sneaky - didn't even look back at me to check to see if I was going to tell her "no."  Just grabbed it and ran.  The entire swipe happened in about 3 seconds - I didn't have the heart to stop her : )

To make these yummy individual Chocolate Chip "Skillet" Cookies, we put cookie dough in these Petite Tart Pans ($6 for 10) and baked for 10-12 minutes.  Yum!  The middle was gooey, the outside was chewy and edges were crunchy - such a treat!  They are perfect for make ahead because they can just go in the freezer and then baked as needed.  Get 1, 2 or 4 out at a time.

As you can see, she is counting out and savoring each one of her allotted 4 chocolate chips.

Devouring and enjoying each and every one!

Now, hot out of the oven, she helped me put a scoop of ice cream on top.  As I was getting my camera set up, I didn't realize she was planning her attack.  When I looked through my lens for a test shot, I see this.

And then, in a matter of seconds...

Swiped it.  As you can see the ice cream didn't even have a minute to start getting melty, as I had planned for the photos.  

Literally ran out of the kitchen with it.  I guess she's got her Dad's love of chocolate chip cookies!

Happy Friday!

    Great idea! I just purchased those tart pans last week so I think I will try this over the weekend.

  2. That picture of her little hand reaching up the counter is so precious! Sometimes these things are much better than a staged photo. :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. OMG...where did you get that cute fall apron??? I'd love to get one for my daughter.

    1. Jennifer - My Great Grandma Ethel Mae made it for her! Maybe I should commission her for a line for the store ;)
