Don't Toss Your Cookies ... Re-Use Them!

Ever have those last two dried-out cookies in the cookie jar that you end up throwing away? I sure do.

Ever ruin a batch of unbaked cookies and have to toss them?  Stop! Don't toss your cookies just yet ... we can re-use even those!

6 Uses for Cookie Crumbs:
  1. ice cream topping
  2. delicious addition to your trifle
  3. use Unbaked Cookie crumbs as chocolate chips when baking cookies or cakes
  4. birthday cake garnish (dirt on a construction cake, or sprinkle on sides and edges on a grown-up cake, stencil shapes ... )
  5. cupcake topping
  6. pudding / cake parfait - mix it in!
I'd have to experiment, but I think these could work with any number of cookies - ginger snaps, unbaked cookies, chocolate chip, oatmeal, jam cookies, Grandma's Icing cookies ...

I think I'll start a container of cookie crumbs in my freezer. Then I'll always (or more often) have cake garnish and ice cream toppings on hand!

I'd love to hear your ideas!
