When was Ice Cream Invented
Wondering when ice cream was invented? This is a question I take very seriously for two reasons. First, ice cream is my favorite food. Second, in college, I was a history major at Columbia University.
Modern ice cream with a milk base dates back to the 17th century. However, its predecessor, a sorbet mixture, was crafted as early as 3000 BC.

I use chocolate chip cookies to make s’mores. Just toast the marshmallow and place between 2 cookies…voila!
Julie, great idea!
I love using your chewy chocolate cookies to make ice cream sandwiches.
They are so yummy!
Mia, thanks so much! That’s a great idea :-)
Awww…YUMMMMM. make me wish summer started all over again. but whos says you can only have ice cream sandwiches in the summer. but the hardest part about the ice cream snadwich is trying to keep the cookiees from breaking when you try to squish a nice big scoop of ice cream to spread it around the cookie.
