Weeks ago I published the recipe for my super-easy cookies 'n' cream dessert. Today I'm going to share with you a variation that my oldest son, Will, and I came up with: peanut butter ice cream dessert.
Peanut Butter Ice Cream Dessert
1 package (16 oz.) peanut butter sandwich cookies
1 package (8 oz.) Cool Whip
1 carton (1/2 gallon or similar) reduced-fat vanilla ice cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
creamy peanut butter
Crush peanut butter sandwich cookies. (We use a zip-top bag and a rolling pin to do this.) Soften Cool Whip and ice cream slightly, just enough so that they're stirrable. Place Cool Whip and ice cream in a large mixer bowl. Add vanilla and mix thoroughly. Stir in peanut butter to taste: we used three heaping tablespoons. Mix in crushed cookies. Spoon into serving dish and freeze until hard enough to scoop.
Want to come sit with me on my porch and have some? I'd love to have you!
