What does a baker do in summer? Except, going crazy because you are not supposed to turn the oven on. Even though you are craving that banana bread like crazy. And brownies. And muffins.

You make ice cream.

Fantastic vanilla ice cream that does not require cooking a custard because there are no eggs involved in this treat. I will keep my eggs for the bread and muffins.

Then you take that ice cream and stop yourself from spooning the whole thing right into your mouth, but instead you stir in bits of your favorite funfetti sugar cookie dough (that you can’t bake) right in. And then you blog about it.

Because you love to share your crazy sweet treat ideas.

Because you love to spread a little bit of sweet deliciousness into other people’s lives.

White chocolate and coconut. One of my favorite combos. I finally made it into a cookie! Soft, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth cookies!

Honestly, it would be quite embarrassing to admit how many of these I inhaled while they were still warm. They are just so good!

If you look at the recipe, you will notice that I used the same base as the Funfetti Birthday Cake Sugar Cookies. I can’t get enough of this sugar cookie base. It’s fantastic! The cookies come out soft and chewy and stay like that for at least 3 days. If you can keep them for that long from yourself and your family that is.

If you are following me on Instagram, you know that our oldest daughter takes ballet classes. In just 5 days she will have her recital. The costumes are ready, they have their dance down and are super excited to get on the stage! We are so proud of her! It’s her second year and second recital and I think she is even more excited then the first time.

Me? I am a pile of nerves. I am already freaking out, worrying if we will get there on time, find parking space, not forget a piece of her costume, change in time for the second dance – all of that with three kids in tow. And of course I need to remember to bring tissues for myself. I know already that I won’t be able to hold it. I couldn’t last year so I don’t expect this year be any different.

I think we need 10 more hours in a day. I know I do for sure! There is just so much to do and not enough time! The evenings are the busiest –  it’s dinner (from scratch almost every day), it’s bath time, it’s bed-time stories, it’s the clean-up. Ooooh, how I dislike doing dishes. Just ask my Hubby. I complain. Every.time. But then I get up in the morning to a clean kitchen and that always makes me happy!

So what I am trying to say is – send a cleaning fairy. I am paying in cookies!!
