Make a Patriotic Ice Cream Creation ~

 Baking is my Zen...sweet nibbles for the soul

In honor of July 4th, and keeping with the patriotic theme,
I made an ice cream creation using the colors of the
American Flag…RED, WHITE and BLUE.

 

 
In addition, I added America’s favorite dessert…Apple Pie.

 

 
What makes this recipe great is the simplicity in putting this together.


The plan…make a Patriotic Ice Cream Creation.
The ingredients…strawberries, vanilla ice cream, blueberries and apple pie.
The hardware…marble slate or plate, two large spoons.
The method…combine and mix.

 





 

 
Have you ever heard of Cold Stone?

 
Cold Stone Creamery is an American-based ice cream parlor chain.
They take ice cream and combine it with other confections. They even allow you to come up with your own creation. If you’ve never gone, find a Cold Stone near you and check it out. You’ll really enjoy it.
 
So…I’ve created the Cold Stone application, minus the use of the actual cold stone.
