Today is the 4th of July! Happy Birthday America! I hope everyone is celebrating today with The 3 F’s – friends, family, and food. We will be!

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

Pizzelle Cookies, made and shaped into bowls. All ready for Ice Cream. from #DietersDownfall.comAren’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.

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.

Sweeten up your tart apricot ice cream with a dollop of honey. from #DietersDownfall.comPlaying 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!

I hope that you are having a great summer! Enjoy!

Homemade Waffle Bowls

Prep time: 

Cook time: 

Homemade Waffle Bowls filled with tart apricot and creme fraiche ice cream and sweetened with brown sugar almonds and honey. The perfect adult indulgence.
For the Pizzelle Cookies
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ¾ 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
  • ¼ - ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ - ¾ cup almond slivers
For the Pizzelle Cookies
  1. Preheat your Pizzelle Makeriron 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.
