Confetti Cookie Dough Doughnuts

September 20, 2017


I just got back from a trip to NYC. If you were following along on my Insta Stories, you saw that I did a LOT of eating. Doughnuts, ice cream, pizza, cookies (that weighed a HALF POUND each) and most notably, Cookie Do. 

A few weeks ago, I told you that people were waiting in line for hours to get their hands on some Cookie Do. While they are still lining up around the block, I somehow managed to go when it wasn't busy and only had to wait 10 minutes. Because I was so happy about the short line, I decided to celebrate by getting WAY TOO MANY desserts. But, YOLO - you know? 

After a serious taste testing session and one very large stomach ache, this is what I have to say. If you do find yourself near Washington Square and the line isn't too long, get the Cookie Do Ice Cream Sandwich and/or the Brookie Cookie Do. Everything else was good, but not a "wait in line for an hour" kind of good - especially when you can easily make your own edible cookie dough at home. 

Homemade cookie dough is pretty great (as anyone who has ever made chocolate chip cookies should know). But you know what's ever better, Homemade Cookie Dough Doughnuts! That's right. Safe to eat (no eggs included) cookie dough on top of delicious baked confetti chocolate chip doughnut. If you just want to eat scoops of cookie dough, that is totally fine too, but I highly recommend adding a doughnut into the mix.
