- Beat remaining 1 3/4 cups cream, sugar and vanilla in another large bowl until soft peaks form. Stir about one-quarter of whipped cream into peanut butter mixture. Fold in remaining cream.
- Line a 9-inch springform pan with plastic wrap. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter mixture on bottom of pan. Arrange 12 cookies on top and cover with about one-third of remaining peanut butter mixture. Repeat with two more layers of cookies and peanut butter mixture, ending with peanut butter mixture.
