Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

I've always loved peanut butter cookies, until one day I chipped a tooth on one. Then I was hesitant about eating my favorite cookie. That is until someone made these. I took a bite and I was hooked! They are soft and chewy and have a big yummy flavor. Last summer I made up a batch and made ice cream sandwiches out of them. What a treat! I let the vanilla ice cream soften a bit, then scooped a big scoopful and pressed it between two of these cookies. Then I individually wrapped the sandwiches in wax paper and put them in the freezer. They were devoured quickly.
