I am so sorry for the horrible picture and for my cluttered house behind the cookies! LOL. Anyway I was supposed to have a cookie exchange party I am going to on Sunday, but with all this snow we are getting in Michigan........ I am not sure if I am gonna travel or not. Ok I am getting to the point of my post..........my hubbys niece babysat so we could go see "I am Legend" with Will Smith. Which I should say was an AWESOME movie, glad we got to go. SO my sister in law had been shopping out in our area and decided to come by and pick up the sitters. Very cool, thanks Mike and Ann........so she saw my cookies I had finished for the cookie exchange and asked to try them,she loved them and said "Now you have to put these on your blog". She asked and you shall receive!!So finally here is a picture and the recipe to my Nana's Ice Cream Cookies.Enjoy!!

Add one pint of softened vanilla ice cream
Mix dough well and divide into two equal parts (in ziploc bags)
