PeanutIce-creamCookies

There is nothing quite like home-made ice-cream cookies. Of course you can buy frozen ice cream cookies and bars, but inevitably the cookie is all soft and mushy, instead of crisp and crumbly like the home-made ones.  These simple peanut cookies are perfect for ice-cream sandwiches. They are really crunchy and nutty which pairs so well with creamy vanilla ice-cream. Truth is, I try not to make these cookies too often, as I usually end up eating all of them. As the summer days are coming to an end though, I highly recommend this very simple but addictive ice-cream cookie recipe. It’s a great dessert for a crowd – just give everyone two cookies, and let them make their own ice-cream sandwich with a scoop of ice-cream.

  7. Flatten the cookie balls with a fork
  8. Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
