1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream, softened1 pound of coconut macaroons, crushed1/2 pound of red and green candied cherries, chopped3/4 cup of slivered almonds1/4 cup of cognac, optional
Place the softened ice cream in a large mixing bowl. Add the macaroons, cherries, almonds and cognac, mix well. Place in freezer until firm. serves 16
This all sound delicious. Another way of saving money on food .........our Walmart has a day old bakery rack at the back of the store, they kind of hid it.
My daughter found it and she stops by frequently to snatch up the good stuff. They have breads, muffins, cakes, cookies etc for about 60% less then the day before.
I found the rack..............so now we laugh at who got the best deal.
Coupons are back, use them but only buy items you need.
