Fresh Peach Ice Cream in Cinnamon-Sugar Won Ton Cups

Unbelievable as it may be, I still had some leftover wonton wrappers in the fridge. I made those super yummy taco wonton cups last week and as I was thinking, I decided that a cute individual dessert could be served in a wonton cup too. So, with all the lovely fresh peaches on the countertop I decided to make ice-cream. And, why not serve it in tiny little scoops, (Thank you melon baller!), in a cinnamon-sugar wonton cup. It was delicious and so cute! Unfortunately we had a huge storm and I didn't get very good pictures. Some of us were daring and drizzled leftover chocolate sauce from the eclairs I made the other day. Yum! This was the best peach ice cream, not too sweet, and really peachy. I left some of the skins on just to give it a more homemade, natural taste. It was good!

Ok, can I just magically make this appear in my kitchen right now?!! It looks awesome and it's reminding me I need to open my new ice cream maker!

We still have some peach ice cream left in our freezer. I will have to make your cups to go with! They are adorable!

I bought won ton cups last week, just because of your taco cups. What a great idea.
