Flat Bread Pizza and Mexican Fried Ice Cream

On Friday I had a house of hungry tweens. My daughter was celebrating her 12th  birthday. For dinner we each made pizzas with flat bread and a variety of toppings like mushrooms, green peppers, tomatoes, pepperoni, and cheese. Each girl was allowed to pick the toppings they like and spread out their own sauce. This is great on pita pocket halves also. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.
Years ago here in Milwaukee there was a restaurant named Chi-Chi's. They had this awesome dessert named Mexican Fried Ice cream. Here's how to make it.
Mexican Fried Ice Cream

1/4 c sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
cornflake crumbs
vanilla ice cream
wax paper
cookie sheet
ice cream scooper
oil for frying
whipped cream

Form two round ice cream balls per person. Lay on wax paper. Stick ice cream balls and cookie sheet in the freezer.  Ready the rest of the ingredients. Mix the cinnamon and sugar and take the ice cream balls back out of the freezer. Roll in cinnamon sugar and place back into freezer. Next step is to roll in the cornflake crumbs. Place back in the freezer to harden for a hour. Ready about 3 inches cooking oil. Dip the ice cream ball in heated oil for 2 seconds to get a crispy shell. Serve with honey drizzled on top, whip cream, and a cherry.
