PB&J Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches Recipe
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or a silicone baking mat.
Beat peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda and egg white until combined. Dough will be loose. Chill for 1 hour in refrigerator. Dough will be soft.
Scoop dough by scant 1/2 tablespoons and gently form into balls. Place on cookie sheet and flatten just slightly with your hand. You should have about 2 dozen cookies.
Bake 5 to 7 minutes, until cookies are puffed and edges are set. Let cool 2 to 3 minutes on baking sheet, and then transfer to cooling rack. Once completely cooled, store in freezer until ready to assemble.
To assemble, flip all cookies over and spoon 1/4 teaspoon jam onto each. Place 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla ice cream (a spring-loaded cookie scoop works perfectly) on 12 of the cookies. Sandwich another cookie on top of each of the 12 ice-cream-topped cookies, gently pressing them together.
Place sandwiches on a plate, or a freezer-safe container, and freeze until firm. To serve, let sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften.
