A sweet summer treat from Bob Blumer, Food Network host and chef.
1 pint coffee ice cream or frozen yogurt
8 cookies of your choice
Step 1: Remove ice cream from freezer and let stand for 10 minutes until malleable. Scoop into coffee mugs and use the back of a spoon to create a smooth surface 1/4" below the rim of the cup. Return to freezer and let harden.
Step 2: Place cups on saucers, garnish with cookies and serve.
