Gluten Free Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches



Last week I came up with an extremely easy and rediculously good tasting gluten-free ice-cream sandwich! I'll admit I was pretty impressed with myself with how they turned out but I was very surprised how easy they were too. They can be made both dairy and peanut free too with the right ingredients. Just use Sunbutter or dairy free ice-cream as a substitute and that's 2 more allergies you don't have to worry about. These are very good and easy to make for a dessert. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! I ate them all really quickly..

Ingredients:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (Sunbutter may work for peanut free)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • Vanilla ice cream of your choice (So Delicious Vanilla Bean for dairy free)

Directions:
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Using electric mixer, blend all ingredients together (except ice-cream) until fully combined.
  3. Use a cookie scoop or your hand, make about 1 inch sized balls and place them on the baking sheet. Press the top of each cookie with a fork criss crossed until flat. You can sprinkle tops of unbaked cookies with extra sugar if desired!
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cookies cool on the baking pan for at least 5-10 minutes. Remove to a rack and cool completely.
  5. Lastly, take a big scoop of vanilla bean ice-cream and put between 2 cookies. Place in the freezer as soon as possible to store for later or eat right away. Enjoy!

Mmm, nothing like ice cream sandwiches! Great idea to make them with peanut butter cookies!

Great Idea! It's 102 in Iowa today, so that sounds good. Also, have you tried the Pillsbury GF choc chip cookie dough, pie crust, pizza crust? I just found out about them. They come in a tub? Wonder if they are good?
Have a great day
