Edible Cookie Dough Ice Cream

We have a new trend upon us once again. But now, instead of green juices, toasts, and acai bowls, we’ve gradually switched back to the not-so-healthy side. I’m talking about oversized milkshakes, donut ice cream sandwiches, and now… edible cookie dough. 

There are two things you have to know about cookie dough and why, although we all do it, you shouldn’t eat out of the bowl. 1) Raw eggs are a “no-no” unless you get them from a salmonella-free farm. To my knowledge, none of the eggs you find at the grocery story are from a bouji farm like that. So just move on. 2) Raw flour can be just as harmful as it contains dangerous bacteria. (It’s surprising how people don’t know about this.)

So, what’s the solution? Eliminate eggs from your mixture completely and pre-bake your flour before adding it to the mix. 


Edible Cookie Dough

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 2 cup flour 
  • 2 tablespoon milk 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt  
  • 1 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/4 mini chocolate chips 
  • sprinkles 
  1. preheat oven to 350 F
  2. spread flour on baking sheet and bake for 5 to 10 minutes
  3. mix flour, brown sugar, vanilla, and milk
  4. place in fridge for 20 minutes
  5. mix in sprinkles and chocolate chips 

The cookie dough by itself is amazing. But to be honest, the buttery flavor was becoming too much to deal with. So, I mixed in little cookie dough cubes into a batch of homemade ice cream. I made this ice cream without any fancy tools, just a few bags and ice. 


Ice Cream in a Bag 

  • 1/2 cup half & half
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract   
  • 4 cups ice
  • 5 tablespoon salt 
  1. place half & half, sugar, and vanilla in a small plastic bag
  2. remove the air and place the bag in a another small plastic bag
  3. in a large plastic bag, place ice, salt, and the bag containing the ice cream mixture 
  4. remove the air, close the bag, and shake for 5-8 minutes (p.s. this is a real workout) 
  5. mix in cookie dough and eat  immediately or freeze to enjoy later
