*Make sure your flour is heat-treated before eating raw cookie dough. You can see how to do that HERE.
So we all know 2016 wasn’t great. But now that 2017 is officially here, we should work on leaving the past behind us and looking forward. And what better way to start the new year than with Confetti Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches, am I right?
These bad boys were inspired by the Confetti Cookie Dough Cake I made a couple months back. Everyone loved it so much, I decided to see what other cookie dough goodness I could come up with.
If you are anything like me and you like the cookie dough better than the cookies themselves, you are going to love these. Homemade vanilla ice cream sandwiched between the most perfect confetti cookie dough. Pretty much the perfect way to start the new year. Happy 2017 everyone!
