Free Firehouse Donut-Weekend

Unfamiliar with the popular, local Firehouse Donuts? Originally started to benefit a native fire company, lifelong fireman/EMT, Kevin Carney, began making donuts for family and friends, which soon spread like wildfire. Teaming up with his brother, Kevin, they were able to finalize the recipe and officially create and launch Firehouse Donuts!

A Delicious Leftover Cookie Recipe

Put those Chrismas cookies to new use!

Repurpose your holiday swiss-cookiessweets in a way that’s fun for the entire family.

Here’s what you will need:
1. Leftover Christmas cookies (and if there’s none left, pick up our Lofthouse cookies from any of our locations).
2. Bassett’s Ice Cream (pick your favorite flavors).
3.Toppings (M and M’s, sprinkles, and marshmallows). 4. Clean plates for the cookies, a spoon or ice cream scooper, and bowls for the toppings. 5. Tupperware container that fits in your freezer and parchment paper.

First, place one cookie down, bottom side up, on a clean plate and scoop two hearty servings of your favorite ice cream flavor on top. Be sure to spread the ice cream out to the cookie’s edge with the back side of your spoon or ice cream scooper.

Place the second cookie on top of the ice cream scoops and gently press the sandwich together. Next, pick up your sandwich and roll the sides of the ice cream sandwich through one of the topping bowls. Place finished ice cream sandwich on top of the parchment paper and place into the tupperware container. Freeze for 30 minutes, then remove once frozen and enjoy!
