Frugal Fridays: Turn Broken Cookies into Ice Cream Toppings!

Ice cream topped with broken cookies I was super bummed when my cookie tray popped in the heat of the oven. The tray distorted into a strange angular shape and my chocolate chip cookies went for the ride of their lives– slipping and sliding into one giant mess. I was sadder than a lost puppy on a rainy day. Has anyone else had a cookie tray pop in the oven? It was very odd.

broken and ugly cookies Just look at this mess! I was supposed to take these cookies to a friend’s house, but instead of just trashing these cookies and buying store-bought cookies to pass off as my own, I made the best of things. I broke the giant cookie mess into smaller pieces and used them to top ice cream. It was delightful.

    Great idea & the title would make a good motto for optimism! You know like when life hands you lemons…I think I will use your phrase instead. 😉
