Lemon-Blueberry Ice Cream Cupcakes

The old saying "The best things come in small packages" usually doesn't apply to dessert. Most of us lean toward the "More is better" philosophy when sweets are concerned, but these ice-cream treats will change your mind. The simplicity of a circle of cake or a cookie tucked into a foil baking cup and topped with ice cream is a subtle change of pace. Serve them as a midweek dessert, the main attraction at a birthday party, or a cool refreshment on a hot afternoon.

Everyone will be sure to ask for more, so make a second batch for the freezer. These treats can be frozen in an airtight container for up to two weeks. Hide them in the back of the freezer to ensure they aren't gobbled up too quickly.
