  • Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. With the mixer running, add flour mixture in two batches, mixing well after each addition. Continue mixing until a dough forms. Form dough into a ball and wrap with plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, at least 4 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Press down on each dough ball using the tines of a fork, once vertically and once horizontally, to make a crosshatch pattern on the cookies. Sprinkle with sugar and transfer to oven. Bake 14 to 16 minutes, rotating baking sheet once during baking. Let cool completely.

  • Place 1 scoop of ice cream on the bottom side of 12 cookies. Top with remaining cookies to form sandwiches. Serve immediately or wrap individually using plastic wrap. Keep frozen up to 1 month.

I tired these cookies yesterday. Only change I made was about a tsp of molassas since my brown sugar was light brown. They came out delicious, taste and texture were great. I didn't have the problem with crumbling- I left them on the pan until almost cool before moving. I cheated and used store bought chocolate ice-cream - great flavor combination :)

I bake cookies all the time and these were just too crumbly. I followed all of the instructions and most of the cookies broke or crumbled as I was putting them onto the cooling rack. If you have a peanut butter cookie recipe that you like and know works well, use that and make this ice cream to go with.
