A couple weeks ago I decorated some Fig Newtons to look like Bibles/Books and placed them on top of cupcakes as a snack for my Little Flowers Girl's Club.
Those little cookies got me thinking about Palm Sunday (Palm Sunday is also known as Fig Sunday since tradition says that Jesus ate figs after entering Jerusalem.) and planning the following dessert to serve my family.
(Update: You can find step-by-step pictures for creating the Bible Cookies here.)
Fig Bibles and Palm Sundaes
Coconut Ice Cream
(Or ice cream of choice. I choose coconut, since coconuts also grow on palm trees... Our favorite is Coconut Bliss.)
Chocolate or Caramel Syrup
Place a scoop (or two) of ice cream in each serving dish. Drizzle syrup over the ice cream. Place a small dollop of whipped cream over each scoop and top with a cherry. Serve with Decorated Fig Newtons.
Here is a picture of the "Palm Sundaes" made by Sara at A Shower of Roses. I love the Palm Frond Cookies she cut out to go with the Sundaes!
