Frozen Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookie Sandwiches

How do y’all feel about cookie sandwiches stuffed with peanut butter and jelly ice cream? I hope you’re all good with that option because today I’m sharing a fairy tale worthy recipe inspired by Pan’s Labyrinth, which is this month’s Food ‘n Flix movie chosen by Katharina from Pretty Cake Machine. I’m not quite sure how to even begin to describe this movie; it’s a bit odd and definitely not the type of movie I would choose to watch every day. First off, there are subtitles because the movie takes place in 1944, not long after the Spanish Civil War. While subtitles don’t bother me so much, they sure do bug the hell out of B.O.B. Bob, which means that this month I was left all on my own to watch this movie. B.O.B. Bob took it upon himself to hide out in the garage until I informed him that it was finally safe for him to come back inside and resume his normal television viewing schedule.

Basically, this movie is a fairy tale about a little girl named Ofelia whose pregnant mother has remarried an evil captain in the fascist army who is attempting to rid Spain of the remaining guerrillas who are hiding in the surrounding woods. I’m being as nice as I can be by describing this man as evil because really there are so many other words I would rather use to describe him. Unfortunately, they are all potty-mouth words, so I’ll refrain from using them. Going into this movie, it’s best if you try to ignore getting too emotionally involved in this man’s character and focus on the others instead. It’s up to you to decide which ones you prefer; the real life ones or the fairy tale ones.

So why did I choose to make Frozen Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookie Sandwiches after watching this movie? Well, in the movie, Ofelia royally messes things up by eating forbidden grapes. I figure we all would stand a chance of doing the same if confronted with something as tempting as peanut butter and grape jelly ice cream-stuffed cookie sandwiches. Even B.O.B. Bob, who wanted absolutely nothing to do with this movie, had no problem scarfing down several of these little guys. He just chose to do it while watching Moonshiners, his newest television obsession, instead of a movie where he was forced to actually read. While we may not agree on one another’s television preferences at least we can agree on one thing. Dessert.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Place the whipping cream, peanut butter, and jelly into a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.
  2. Churn the mixture in an ice cream maker until ice cream consistency is achieved.
  3. Spoon the ice cream into a freezer-safe container and freeze for at least 4 hours.
  4. Use a small cookie scoop to place a small amount of ice cream between two cookies to form a sandwich.

Suggestions:

  • The ice cream will have a somewhat grainy texture due to the amount of oil in the peanut butter. It may look odd, however, it tastes amazing.
  • I used natural peanut butter and grape jelly in this recipe, however, you can use any type of nut butter or jelly/jam/preserve you prefer.
  • These Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers are a perfect option for those of you who like a little bit of chocolate with your peanut butter and jelly.
  • After a thorough taste-test, I and several other individuals decided that these Pepperidge Farm Butter Chessmen Cookies made the most delicious frozen ice cream cookie sandwiches.

  • You can use whichever cookie you prefer in this recipe. The sky is the limit. Go wild.

Improvements:

  • Smear additional grape jelly on the inside of each cookie before making an ice cream sandwich.
  • Roll the edges of the ice cream-stuffed cookies into chocolate sprinkles or miniature chocolate chips before serving.
  • This OXO Good Grips Small Cookie Scoop is my favorite cookie scoop. I’ve tried several different brands, yet I keep coming back to this one. It’s also perfect for stuffing these ice cream cookie sandwiches.
  • Watch Pan’s Labyrinth and come up with your own recipe based on Ofelia’s fairy tale adventures.
