I had made this several years ago, but lost the recipe. I finally came across it and hope you like the share. It's easy and oh so tasty. This is a recipe that can be tweaked any way you'd like. Almond extract has been used in place of vanilla. But if you prefer a more "traditional" taste, stick to the recipe. Any type of cookie can be used as a base even homemade crusts. Also toppings are endless!!!! From fresh fruit to chocolate and caramel or just plain. I've even added food coloring to chocolate chips even fresh strawberries to the batter. Anything goes~
