Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 Cups sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 Cup Fruity Pebbles cereal, divided
  • 2 Cups light vanilla ice cream

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick aluminum foil, making sure to leave enough overhang on the sides. Set aside.

In a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.  Scrape down the sides as needed.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cornstarch. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture to wet ingredients and beat until combined. Gently fold in 1/2 cup of the Fruity Pebbles cereal using a rubber spatula.

Press the cookie dough evenly into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until very lightly browned on top. Cool completely on a wire rack. 

Spread ice cream evenly over cookie base in the baking pan. Top with remaining 1/2 cup of cereal.  Lightly press cereal into ice cream. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until set, at least 2 hours. 

When ready to serve, lift foil out of pan and cut into 16 2-inch squares.  

Fruit Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Fruit Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
