Peanut Butter Cookie



The great thing about ice cream sandwiches is you can really make them any way you’d like. 

For these ice cream sandwiches I used a Peanut Butter cookie recipe from the Grand Central Baking book.  (I am adding this book to my amazon wish list as the few recipes I’ve tried have been keepers.)  The cookies were very soft and I found that scoops of ice cream didn’t “squash” very well between the cookies, it worked much better to scrape the ice cream from the container.   I did try pre making and freezing a few of these and the cookie tends to get a little hard when frozen (although not frozen solid) I prefer to have the cookies at room temperature.

Peanut Butter Cookies recipe from the Grand Central Baking Book

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Line baking sheets with parchment and pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda and set aside.

In a large bowl cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars together.  This should take 3-5 minutes and the butter mixture should be really light and fluffy.  I recommend setting the timer because 3 minutes feels longer than you think!

Add the eggs one at time being sure to mix thoroughly after each addition.  Mix in the vanilla and then the dry ingredients.  Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl often.

Scoop dough into balls about the size of a ping-pong ball and using the palm of your hand gently flatten the cookies to about 1/2″ thick.  If the dough is too sticky, wet your hand with water before flattening them. 

Once flattened, use a fork to make a criss cross pattern on each cookie and sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Bake cookies for 10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through the baking time.  Cookies should look lightly browned on the edges and slightly under-baked in the middles. 

Let cookies cool on the baking sheets.

Turn into Ice cream sandwiches!
