Banana Split Ice-Cream Sandwiches

Recipe provided by: My Recipes

Ingredients

Cookies:

  • 7 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg

Filling:

  • 2 cups vanilla low-fat ice cream, softened
  • 3/4 cup ripe mashed banana (about 1 1/2 medium bananas)
  • 6 tablespoons coarsely chopped dry-roasted peanuts, divided

 Remaining ingredients:

  • 6 tablespoons frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 6 maraschino cherries, drained

Preparation

  • To prepare cookies, combine sugar and flour, stirring with a whisk. Add vanilla and egg, and beat with a mixer at medium speed 2 minutes. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw 6 (3-inch) circles on paper. Turn paper over, and secure with masking tape. Spoon about 1 tablespoon batter into center of each drawn circle; spread batter to outside edge of each circle. Bake at 350° for 6 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Carefully remove cookies from paper, and cool completely on wire racks. Repeat procedure with the remaining batter, reusing the parchment paper.
  • To prepare the filling, combine the ice cream, banana, and 1/4 cup peanuts, stirring well.
  • Place 1 cookie on each of 6 plates. Carefully spread about 1/3 cup ice cream mixture over flat side of each cookie. Top with remaining cookies, flat sides down, pressing gently. Top each sandwich with 1 tablespoon whipped topping, 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup, 1 teaspoon peanuts, and 1 cherry. Serve immediately.
