Ice Cream Sundae Cookies

These Ice Cream Sundae Cookies are a fun way to have all your Ice Cream Cone favorites in a cookie!

I was thinking a while back what would happen if you put all the stuff you like about an ice cream cone into a cookie.

Because these are things that I think about.

My brain is filled with all sorts of questions.  Mostly revolving around food, but sometimes also the Kardashians.

I cheated a little bit on these and didn’t use ice cream cones. Because I used these Butter Crisps that I buy and hoard from the store.  I am obsessed with them.. they are like the best tasting waffle cone ever.

Anyhow, totally use sugar cones or waffle cones if you don’t have those Butter Crisps.

I coarsely crushed them…

And then I decided to use white chocolate chips, you know, kinda vanilla ice cream-ish.

And then also M&Ms.  Because they are pretty.

Fold the crushed cones or butter crisp cookies into the dough.

It will be thick.

I flattened my dough a little bit before baking them, because the cookies will stay super fat if you don’t.

Then I thought drizzling them with melted chocolate would be the right thing to do.

I’ve obviously not been watching enough Kardashians because I haven’t even seen this episode! I think it’s time for a binge. Both with episodes and cookies.

Sharon Bryce

Trader Joe’s sells a wonderful Belgian Butter Waffle Cookie.

Renee @ Awesome on $20

Aaaaaahhhhh!!!! Stop saying the K word. 😉 You need to wash your mouth out with cookies. These look awesome. Do the cone bits stay crispy in the cookies, or do they soften up when baked?


Wow! Now this is an awesome cookie! My kids would love these!

Megan {Country Cleaver}

Beth @ bethcakes

What creative cookies! They sound & look incredible. 🙂


My 6 year old daughter and I made these yesterday. They are so good! The waffle cone in it is an amazing texture. We’ve made several of your recipes together over the summer and you rock!

Stephanie @ Macaroni and Cheesecake

What a genius idea to put a waffle cone in a cookie!! These look fabulous!


I baked these cookies over the weekend and I’m officially hooked! The waffle cone gives that unexpected salt kick while the white chocolate chips do its part to sweeten the deal! A true party in my mouth! Thanks for sharing!


Can I use whole wheat flour in these? Better yet can I use whole wheat flour in any of your recipes instead of regular white flour?


I made these cookies today and although they taste very good, it seems that they need a higher ratio of dough to mix-ins. The cookies tend to fall apart easily going from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
