Giant Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich

I created this giant peanut butter cookie cake for my husband, adding light and low-fat products to the cookie dough. It was so fantastic that I fixed it with conventional ingredients for guests. Since it can be made ahead of time and frozen, it cuts stress for busy hostesses. And really, who doesn't love peanut butter ice cream? —Joann Belack, Bradenton, Florida
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. + freezing
  • Makes
    12 servings


  • 2 packages (16 ounces each ) individually-portioned refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough

    Really good!! I followed the recipe exactly, and this was easy and good. The only thing I would change would be omitting the chocolate graham cracker crumbs. They didn’t really add anything either in flavor or texture, and made it hard to tell when the cookie dough was cooked. I wouldn’t change anything else. This was a really good dessert. VFE

    I made this for a family gathering, and needless to say it was a huge hit! I didn't even realize that I had left out the chocolate graham cracker crumbs until is started writing this review, but it was still fantastic. Next time I think I will make it in pie pans instead of the springform pan, but however it is made, it is a wonderful dessert!
