Peanut butter & ice cream sandwiches

So I said I'd be back to share what I did with all that yummy homemade ice cream from my last post.

I give you peanut butter & ice cream sandwiches!


It seems ice cream sandwiches are a big trend for this summer, it's essentially a scoop of ice cream sandwiched between two cookies, what could possibly be better than that?  Peanut butter is one of my all time favourite things, so I baked a batch of peanut butter cookies as the perfect compliment to my homemade vanilla ice cream.

For the cookies you'll need...

50g unsalted butter
50g caster sugar
50g soft brown sugar
50g peanut butter (Peanut Butter & Co is my favourite as it uses no added oil)
1 egg
100g self raising flour

1. Cream together the butter, sugars & peanut butter until smooth & fluffy, then beat in the egg.

2. Stir in the flour until you have a soft cookie dough

3. Roll into balls about 2cm wide, flatten slightly, then place on a lined baking sheet.

4. Bake in the oven at 180c/GM4 for around 12-15 minutes.  Keep an eye on them so they don't over brown.

5.  Leave to cool thoroughly & crisp up before constructing your sandwich

When you're ready to use, simply sandwich a scoop of vanilla ice cream between two cookies & serve immediately.  You can also add extra ingredients, what ever you fancy really?


I rolled the edge of one of the sandwiches in grated milk chocolate for an added indulgence!  I also added some strawberry jam at the request of hubby (he does have a good food idea every now & then!)  Just spread some jam on the insides of the cookies before sandwiching together.  I have to say that was my favourite combination, but then I'm a sucker for anything with peanut butter & jam.  I can definitely recommend my peanut butter & jam cupcakes if you haven't tried them?

You do get in a bit of a mess eating these, but then I guess that's half the fun!  Till next time, Rebecca x
