Blackberry Mascarpone Cookie Sundae

Saturday night and everybody went to the game except me and the ‘Littles’, we played with our iPads and watched a movie while waiting for the 49ers v Packers play off game to start.  I concocted this cookie sundae idea for my ‘Littles’ who deserve this treat because they are going to be so good during the game!

And what a game it was- fast forward to Sunday night and all is well in the San Francisco Bay Area-Congratulations San Francisco 49ers!!!

I found both the Madagascar Vanilla Powder and the Lavender Vanilla Bean Sugar that I used in the mascarpone cookies at Savory Spice Shop but they can also be ordered at Savory Spice Shop if you’re interested in one of them or both.  I don’t think there is going to be any scent left in the jar of Lavender Vanilla Bean Sugar  because I can’t stopping taking the lid off and smelling it.

The mascarpone cookies are made without butter which makes them lighter than a large buttery sugar cookie but every bit as tasty. The ‘Littles’ loved them and ate all the cookie scraps left from cutting out the circles.  If you don’t make the sundaes, please try the cookies-they are so easy and can be served broken apart from the large baked cookie instead of taking the time to cut out the circles.
