Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches


Just when you thought raw cookie dough couldn’t get any more decadent…

We all have our guilty pleasures. One of mine has always been raw cookie dough. I know you’re not supposed to eat it because of the raw egg, but it’s just so irresistible!Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches stacked on a plate

Over the years, I’ve come up with various safe ways to indulge my cookie-dough habit. First I made an egg-free Edible Cookie Dough Recipe I could eat right out of the bowl. The chocolate-chip version was such a hit, I made a sugar cookie dough as well. I even got fancy and turned my edible dough into a dip.

So the other day, as I was toying with ideas for a variation on my Easy Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches, it suddenly hit me: why do you have to bake the cookies first? If the dough is so good raw, why not just roll it out, load it up with ice cream, slice it, and freeze it?

Well, now I know the answer. Because it’s too good. This deliciously rich, buttery chocolate chip cookie dough, layered with creamy vanilla ice cream, is so tasty you can’t stop eating it! It’s up to you to decide whether this decadent treat is worth the risk. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.

How does the cookie dough hold together if it isn’t baked?

  • Simple – it’s frozen solid! The frozen dough is firm enough to handle and bite into without going through the oven first. All you have to do is make sure to eat it before it thaws completely (yeah, like that’s a problem).

OK, there’s no raw egg in this dough, but it still contains raw flour. Is that dangerous?

  • Raw flour doesn’t make people sick very often, but it can happen. The CDC has a warning page about the risks of E. coli infection from flour. If you’re worried about it, you can toast your flour on a baking tray in the oven for about 5 minutes at 350°F, or heat it for one minute in the microwave.
  • Let it cool completely before using it in the dough. The dough still has that great raw taste and texture, even if the flour has been cooked.

Can you make this with other kinds of ice cream besides vanilla?

  • Absolutely! I made them with vanilla ice cream because it goes with everything, but there are tons of other ice cream flavors that would go beautifully with the chocolate-chip cookie dough. There’s chocolate, of course, and coffee, and peppermint stick – and, for the ultimate, cookie dough ice cream. Cookie dough smothered in more cookie dough – what could possibly be better?
