For all the people wanting an option that would travel well, you can use a swirl of frosting instead of ice cream (I like peanut butter cups with chocolate frosting). Brownies make a nice base too.

I haven't made these but reading the other reviewers I think that I would mold the cookie dough around the outside of the muffin pan ( upside down ). That eliminates the need for the wooden spoon. I would also use a regular 2 inch pan instead of the small pan and my own cookie recipe. Sorry Pillsbury but your cookies have such an artificial taste.

The Smucker's seedless jam wasn't my favorite, nor was the PB sugar cookie dough, so I substituted homemade sugar cookie dough and homemade raspberry jam!

Decadent dessert in a small portion, so less guilt about enjoying it and really cute! This recipe was a good choice! Gives me lots of ideas for variations on this theme - how about peanut butter cookie dough, chopped peanuts in place of the walnuts and some sliced bananas with choc. chip ice cream? I like the idea of doing the cups ahead of time, and if you scoop the ice cream (using a small cookie dough scoop) ahead of time and re-freeze on a tray, assembling at serving time would be pretty easy. Congrats to the winner!

This is a great recipe that I recently served as a starter course during a cocktail party that I hosted. There were a few modifications that were made to make this the talk of the evening. For starters, Nestle makes an awesome peanut butter dough that forms a perfect crust, better than Pillsbury sugar cookie dough. Everyone knows that walnuts stick in your teeth, so I substituted 1/2 cup Skippy peanut butter. I was out of Hershey chocolate chips, but I did have raisins. I had Smuckers raspberry jam, but I opted for Welch's grape jelly, and it was delish. I spent most of the night passing out this recipe to my guests. No wonder it took home a million. A real keeper, thanks Pillsbury.

I am a newbie here and have not been involved in a bake-off yet, so I probably don't have much room to really talk, but I'm surprised this recipe won the $1mil prize. It seems like other recipes had more flavors involved that would enrich the palate, just from reading them and watching the videos. This seems too simple-good to be true to be able to win ONE MILLION DOLLARS for a recipe like this. Maybe Pillsbury is looking for that easy of a recipe. ??? There are other contests that only pay out $25k or $50k for some gourmet dishes. I don't get it.
Oh well, does anyone know the dates for the next bake-off?

Good idea, but it's better with another flavor ice cream. I've used summer berry and chocolate mint chip. I slice peaches, blueberries, blackberries etc. to serve with it on the same plate and add a few whole raspberries on top. We still haven't figured out how to eat it...pick it up, fork, spoon? The shell is hard to cut neatly. The shells freeze nicely for future use. (Single layer of baked shells on a cookie sheet, freeze, put in plastic freezer bag. Defrost on counter for 20 minutes or so before serving.)

Darling little treats, easy and fun to make, but just not very good tasting. I mean, they're not bad tasting, just not "wow!" at all. They look like something you would want to serve at a party, but practically speaking, they have to be eaten as soon as you've scooped the ice cream into them or they start melting all over the place. I would probably never make them again. I've been a bit disappointed in the flavor of the last 3 or 4 Pillsbury million dollar recipes. They have all been very clever and simple in their use of the product, but not delicious in the flavor area.
