Peach Ice Cream Sandwich

Yesterday, school started so my sister is back at her Univeristy apartment.  While she stayed with us during the summer, we experimented in the kitchen.  One day we made our own ice cream sandwich using the waffle cone maker I got from 22BHealthy.  We thought blending the pulp of a ripe peach to vanilla yogurt or vanilla ice cream would make a healthy treat.  I'm enjoying the versatility of my waffle cone maker as it lets me make various snacks, my own waffle cone and waffle sundae dishes.  I've made wraps and crackers with mine. Do you have a waffle cone maker?   Have you found other uses your waffle cone maker? Please share your ideas/ experiences.

Peach Ice Cream Sandwich
Waffle Cookies
   2 eggs
   6 Tbsp turbinado sugar
   1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
   1 Tbsp vanilla extract
   1/2 cup flour
   1/2 tsp baking powder

   1 ripe peach pulp blended into
   2 c vanilla yogurt

To make the waffle cookies:
Beat eggs, adding sugar gradually.  Beat until smooth.  Add melted butter and vanilla.
Sift flour and baking powder and blend into egg mixture until smooth.  The dough will be sticky.
Drop 1 heaping tablespoon on the nonstick surface of the waffle cone maker.  Close the lid and
hold down lid firmly for 20 seconds.  After 20-30 seconds lift up lid to check color.  If it is too light, close the lid and bake for another 10 seconds.  Follow directions for your waffle cone maker.  Usually, waffle cookies are done when steam stops escaping from the waffle cone maker (total of 30-40 seconds when you first close the lid).  Don't lift lid while waffle cookies are steaming as this might cause them to stick or split.

To make the ice cream sandwiches:
Make waffle cookies. Place 1-2 inches of the filling on top of one cookie and place second cookie on top, pressing gently.  You may add sprinkles on the exposed surfaces of the filling. Freeze the ice cream sandwich. Enjoy!
