When life gives you sorbet, make sorbet sandwiches!
The last few days Ky (5) has been begging for ice cream. Flavor? Cone? Who cares, says a 5 year old! Let's just say my little sorbet princess was in heaven!
This simple strawberry sorbet has just 4 ingredients and is oh so delightful!
Ky said "Moooom, this is the very best ice cream I've ever had! Can I have another one?" A mom's response... absolutely not! But if you clean the dishes you can have 2 more!
To make this sorbet extra kid-friendly sandwich the sorbet in between two shortbread cookies! What kid could resist a sorbet sandwich?? My girls sure couldn't.
