I scream…you scream…we all scream for ice cream!
There’s nothing that screams summer more to me than ice cream! Sweet, creamy, and cold – name a flavor and chances are I’ve tried it!
A fun and easy ice cream dessert that brings me back to childhood is DIY Ice Cream Sandwiches. When I have friends or family over for dinner, I like to set up a whole DIY Ice Cream Sandwich buffet. All it takes is a few pints of your favorite ice cream flavors along with plates filled with cookies.

Good things come in small packages, right?
Recently, our bakery department launched a new mini dessert category, featuring bite-sized versions of some of our favorite sugary treats—brownies, cookies, macaroons, banana bread…

They also make party planning easy—get a pack of blondies, some double chocolate chunk cookies and assorted macaroons and make your own little party platter. (We also have our own mini platter coming soon—for the nights when you don’t have time to do it yourself.)

But when I do find a dessert I like, I tend to love it passionately. Tiramisu. The custard at Shake Shack. And recently, it was the banana chocolate chip muffins at a cafe near my apartment. …
I can’t wait for my meal to end. I don’t want my guests to leave — I just want dessert.
In fact, if I could skip the entire meal and munch my way from muffins to pound cake, I would be in heaven. But some people, (my husband and son) actually like eating the entire meal.
With our family’s busy schedule, any dessert to be enjoyed has to be quick and easy, but decadent enough to pass my rigorous crave test. Behold the wonder of frozen puff pastry! …
