Have you ever made homemade vanilla ice cream? The ingredients are pretty basic: cream, milk, sugar, egg yolks and natural vanilla flavor. But if you want that same taste without having to make it yourself, we've found that Trader Joe's version tastes like homemade versions. In fact, it has all the same ingredients plus two preservatives and that's it -- no long list of unpronounceable colorings and chemicals.

So with a little ice cream laying around and some oatmeal cookie mix in the cabinet, we had to bake up some cookies and make our own delicious version of Westwood Village's Diddy Reese.
