  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup almond milk


  • Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • Whisk together your dry ingredients and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together your butter and sugars until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes).
  • Add your vanilla extract and then your egg beating until just combined each time. Mix in your milk.
  • Slowly combine your dry ingredients. Beat until well incorporated. (Dough will be thicc). Now using a cookie scoop, scoop your dough out onto your baking sheet. Slightly overfill each scoop so that when you press your scoop down on the mat, you have a cute little edge like you would with a scoop of ice cream.
  • Optional: take some cute sprinkles and gently press them into the tops of each scoop.
  • Freeze your cookie dough until completely solid (at least 2 hours). This is non-negotiable or else you won't have pretty ice cream scoops, you'll have weird looking cookie blobs.
  • Once the dough is completely frozen, move your oven rack up to be on the second level from the top and preheat your oven to 375°. (Note: Your dough should still be in the freezer)!
  • When the oven is preheated, transfer the cookies from the freezer to the oven (remember give them no time to thaw). Bake for 13-15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool on your baking sheet for 5 minutes or so before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Optional: Assembly

  • These are fun to stack on top of a cute cake cone. Use some buttercream to make it stick a little better. Using buttercream you can also stick multiple levels on one another too.
  • Another option is to fill your cone and essentially take these to a whole other level. Fill with some mousse, cake, or check out these rice krispie treat cones.
  • Serve and enjoy!
