Author's Note: I know that my blog is a bit um... orange-ish today. I was determined to sit at this computer until I could figure out how to change the html code so I could widen my blog. After I figured that out, things began to snowball out of control. Next, I decided that I needed a fall background. After I put the background on, I realized that my header no longer matched, so I had to make a new one from scratch in Photoshop. When you teach yourself these things by trial and error, it can be painfully slow. I am a bit of a simpleton when it comes to both computer code and Photoshop so it took me three hours from start to finish. And THAT, my friends, is why it's going to stay up on this blog for a little while... Orange and all.
Thank you for understanding and loving me through this "learning" phase.
On With the post!
This weekend, I made the most delicious discovery, and I want to share it with you. I've been making these BIG SOFT GINGER COOKIES for several years now. They are a seasonal favorite around this house, and a huge hit wherever I bring them. They won't win any prizes for looks, but as soon as people try them, they beg for the recipe.
If you like gingerbread, you might LOVE these!
After dinner one night, I grabbed a few cookies for dessert and I had a delicious epiphany! I decided to plop a little scoop of vanilla bean ice cream onto one of the cookies and turn it into a Ginger Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich.
Oh. My. Word.
That's right. They are so good, I just made up a new word.
You should try them as soon as possible. That is, unless you are a gingerbread hater.

Bake them up! (But don't over-bake them. You want them to be nice and soft. Trust me on this.)
Add the magically delicious stuff. Then smoosh the whole thing together!
Perfection. Bliss in every bite!
