Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches

These ice cream sandwiches make a fun dessert or afternoon treat. I love the combination of peanut butter and jelly, and I have a p+j sandwich most mornings for breakfast. In the US, you frequently see ice cream sandwiches popping up on dessert menus – probably a nostalgic nod to childhood sweets. I think it’s a lovely way to end a meal if you’re still a bit hungry, and they’re also perfect for sharing.

You can make flatter and thus thinner cookies if you prefer to get a higher ice cream ratio into your sandwiches, in that case you’ll need to bake them a bit less long. Also, feel free to experiment with ice cream fillings and different cookie types – why not try making them with my chewy chocolate chip cookies next time?
