Cookie bowl ice cream


This bowl-like Cookie that I made was so much fun. Filling was added by our Little Master Chef Akki, as he bit on crunchy cookie and adviced, " Mamma, how about a scoop of ice cream with a lovely fruit mounted on the top of it "
We had double fun, double excitement in the kitchen while making this double dessert :)

Its Scrumptious...its heavenly.. its a combination of crunchy and silky with a bite of exotic fruits.. an ecstatic dessert ride!!


Let's show you, how I made this one......

Ingredients :
For cookie dough :
  • 1 cup all purpose flour + 2 tbsp
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 50 gms butter
  • 2-3 drops vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp milk (at room temperature)
  • 50 gms cooking chocolate (approx.) 

For serving:
  • Your favourite flavour of ice cream
  • Chocolate sauce as much as you like :P
  • Some chopped fruits

Preparation time : 15- 20 minutes + 45 minutes resting time
Baking time : 15 minutes
Yields : 4 cookie bowls
Kitchen equipments required: 2 mixing bowls, wired whisk, electric beater, rolling pin, cookie cutter, muffin tray, double boiler, a spoon, an icecream scooper.




Directions:
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients and whisk until completely incorporated.
  • In an another bowl add butter and sugar, beat with a wired whisk or electric beater until soft and creamy.
  • Add the dry ingredients, vanilla extract and milk and whisk till completely incorporated.
  • Cover the dough with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the surface with powdered sugar and roll the dough 1/2 inch thick, cut approx. 5 inch circles of the rolled dough 
  • Turn the muffin tray upside down and drape each circle over the greased cups
    of tray.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes or until done.
  • Allow them to cool completely before de moulding.
  • Next spoon some melted chocolate in the bowls and coat the inside completely and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes till the chocolate is set. (This will prevent the bowls getting doughy and soft after adding ice cream) 
  • Fill with your favourite ice cream, top some chocolate sauce and garnish with chopped fruits.

Enjoy :) :)
