Elizabeth has strong feelings about a few strange things in life, one of them being that butterscotch doesn’t get the attention it deserves. That changes today when she visits Something Sweet by Maddie Lu in Coon Rapids to make Maddie’s family favorite Ooey Gooey Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies.
Each of our cookie recipes is paired with a delicious flavor of Bridgeman’s Ice Cream this year. Maddie thinks you should try Bridgeman’s Butter Brittle Ice Cream with her butterscotch treats (and Elizabeth thinks they’d make a great ice cream sandwich!)
Bridgeman’s Ice Cream has been stirring up sweet memories for over 80 years when the original Bridgeman’s Ice Cream Shoppe opened its doors back in 1936. They have 14 different flavors including their holiday flavor, Peppermint Krisp. Look for Bridgeman’s Ice Cream at Hy-Vee, Kowalski’s, Von Hanson’s Meats, Oxendale’s or your local family market or check out Bridgemans.com to find a retail location near you.
