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.

Tastes good but is somewhat complicated. Too many steps. Also, what is the handle of a wooden spoon that will make 1 inch holes in the cookie?

I am suprised that this receipt was even considered to be tested. There is nothing original about an ice cream filled cookie no matter how you dress it up. I have often thought of entering one of these contest but I think my receipts may be to original, to nutritious, and to simple.

This was very time consuming to make considering what it was--ice cream in a cookie. I made this for a luncheon and all were underwhelmed. IF I were to make it again (doubtful) I would just put the cookies in a pan and make it as bars. MUCH easier with the same taste.

I made these today for my kids and we LOVED them! They are super easy to make and delicious. I was thinking my kids wouldn't like the Raspberry Jam, but they did and that was my favorite part. That combination was super yummy! Hubby hasn't had one yet, but I'm sure he'll like them....ice cream, chocolate, cookies, nuts, jam....what's not to like? Big Congrats to the winner! I think this definitely deserved the big prize!

I didn't want to have last minute preparation so I used vanilla pudding instead of ice cream.....used it for a ladies luncheon with other miniature desserts and it was a hit. Will use it again and again. JC

For those complaining about the fact that these don't "travel well", I might suggest reading the "Tips" section. It reads:
Make-Ahead: Prepare cookie cups through step 5 omitting jam. Store covered up to two days at room temperature. WHEN READY TO SERVE, fill with jam, ice cream and top with raspberry.
I mean, Hello! How simple can it be? These are delicious - but ice cream is obviously going to melt unless you transport them via an on-vehicle freezer!

Worth a million bucks!!! Wonderful, easy to make! Kid and family friendly. My son helped me make it the first time when Grandma and Grandpa came for dinner. Everyone loved it!!! We made it a second time for the other set of grandparents and each of my four kids got to help with a simple assembly line. Now my kids want to make it again for a summer party. I'm sure it will be a big hit. We will make it ahead of time and impress all of the guests. This is exactly what the winning recipe should be yummy, easy and great for families and friends! It is our new favorite!

Boy, there sure are a lot of sour grapes reviews by people who haven't even tried the recipe! Shame on you. Sure, it's a simple idea. Maybe you're mad that you didn't come up with it? Sounds like a bunch of sore losers to me. Get over yourselves! And congratulations to Sue Compton on her MILLION DOLLAR winning recipe!!
