He's A Cool Fellow! Gingerbread Ice Cream Man is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is not for the beginner as it is hard ot get the ice cream right. I am an experienced baker but found this one a little messy but fun as I was making it with the kids. Really make sure your ice cream is cold and here is a quick tip, take the ice cream out and let it soften slightlt, then spread a layer close to the thickness you want into a square shape bigger than teh cutter. Then freeze it again. Once solid, cut out the shape and it fits easier this way. I love ice cream but I also made a version with whoopie pie frosting inside. Remember your ideas are only limited to your imagination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the Perfect Man. The hardest part was not getting the ice cream too soft so that it made the gingerbreadsoggy. I am a begginer at decorating and this was a hit with the kids that came to visit during the holidays. One little guy told his Mom. This is the biggest cookie I ever saw. If Me as a beginner can do this it will be win for someone with more talent. Love gingerbread and with ice cream so yummy and the kids cleaned their plates. I think he would be good in chocolate or a fun fetti for summer. You could say he had too much sun and got colored splotches. Just way toooo cute. I had a little plaque that says perfect man, Not too sweet, doesnt give problems and when you want, just bite his head off for delicious treat. Got lots of laughs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How do you make an already cookie even better? Turn it into and ice cream sandwich!! I use this idea all year round! During the holidays i fill the cookies with candy cane ice cream to give it a more festive feel. I pre make them and wrap each in parchment so they're ready to eat when you are.
