Peanut Butter & Jelly Ice Cream Sandwich

Kids and adults alike will love this delicious twist on a classic taste. Surprise your next house guests or party goers by making these a day or two ahead of time and serving them as a treat or dessert.

Note: We’ve made these many times and have found that some cookie brands freeze harder than others. Once you remove the sandwich from the freezer, you may want to allow it to thaw a few minutes before serving.

Frozen PB & J


16 tsp strawberry jam (or your favorite flavor)
16 soft peanut butter cookies
1 vanilla ice cream (about 1 pint)
* For large cookies or thicker ‘sandwiches’, more ice cream may be required


Spread 1 teaspoon jam onto bottoms of all 18 cookies.

Using a knife, cut ice cream into eight 1/2 inch thick slices. Work quickly to avoid ice cream becoming soft!

Using a glass, cookie or biscuit cutter roughly the same size as the cookies, cut ice cream into rounds.

Place one round onto a cookie, repeat with 7 more cookies. Top with remaining cookies.

Gently press together.

Wrap individual sandwiches tightly with plastic wrap and freeze 4 hours.
