Jay Nordlinger at NRO has been teasing me with milkshakes. So I have decided to post an easy milkshake recipe. So easy that the kids are going to help me make one tonight. Anything made with a 2 year old's "help" is uber-easy.

2 scoops vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sliced strawberries.

Blend. Adjust milk to make a thicker or thinner 'shake. I actually have blueberries in my freezer so I'll be making a blueberry shake.

What they hey, here's a two-fer, 'cause you need a cookie with that milkshake right?

Russian Tea Cookie

1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In small bowl combine nuts and flour. In saucepan mix corn syrup, sugar and butter over medium. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat and add flour/nuts. Drop onto cookie sheets by teaspoonful 3" apart. Bake 5 minutes or until center is set. Let rest before removing from pan. If you are doing batches, be sure that your batter stays warm until it gets into the oven. These turn into the the most scrumptious crisp wafers perfect for dipping.
