This light, fluffy, Chocolate Cherry Granola Parfait is perfect for any time of the day. It’s a great way to cool off from the summer heat, to serve to guests at your get together or as a perfect snack for the family. It boasts beautiful flavors as well as colors. This is one of my family favorites to get granola into my children. I sometimes make it with Strawberries as well and it’s just as delicious. If your using Strawberries you can choose to use fresh strawberry or strawberries with Strawberry glaze.

1 tsp Cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups (12 oz.) milk chocolate chips

This will make about 1 1/2 to 2 Dozen cookies because your making larger cookies for the sandwiches

* You will want to use a Tablespoon to make your cookies, get a full tablespoon and a half, and then make them into a ball and place them on a cookie sheet. You will only fit about 6 cookies on a sheet due to the size of them.

* Bake at 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes depending on your oven it may be 8-10 minutes but check them in 5 minutes to see how they are doing so that you don’t over cook them.

* Place on a cooling rack to cool.

* Once the cookies are cooled work with two cookies at a time, spoon the ice cream flavor of choice onto your cookie. Put the other cookie on top and then place in a freezer bag and into the freezer and continue till they are all done. If your Ice Cream starts to melt, put it back in the freezer for a little bit and then continue to make them.
