Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches

It is my oldest son Andrew’s birthday… What should I make for desert? He claims he doesn’t want pie or cake. He really liked the peanut butter cookies I made not long ago and he loves ice cream… Hey, guess what? My youngest son Richie, suggested Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches! What a great idea!!!!!!!! Andrew will love it!

1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon lukewarm water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
 8oz dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Peanut butter cup ice cream, softened (Take the ice cream out of the freezer after the cookies have cooled otherwise you will have ice cream soup… lol)

The butter, peanut butter, and egg should be at room temperature.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, water, and vanilla extract. Beat until incorporated.  Add the baking soda, the flour, and the chocolate chips. Mix until just combined. Roll 1- 1/2 inch balls of dough in the granulated sugar and place about 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not over bake as the cookies should still appear slightly uncooked. Cool completely. To assemble sandwiches spoon softened ice cream on to the bottom of a cookie, top it with a cookie that is the same size. Place sandwiches on a cookie sheet and put in the freezer until ice cream is completely frozen. Store sandwiches in an air tight container in the freezer.
