Let’s be real. When you buy cookie dough ice cream it’s not for the actual, ya know…ice cream. It’s all about that cookie dough flavor. And for me, one of the biggest dessert let downs is when there’s just not enough cookie dough for every bite!
Well let’s solve that problem right now. Make your own cookie dough for ice cream and create your own epic ice cream desserts any day of the week!
How to heat treat flour
Ok so I know these are technically no bake cookie dough bites, but you do need your oven just for a teensy bit. So here’s the thing…you can’t eat flour raw. You have to do something called ”heat treating” it to make sure there’s no bacteria and becomes safe to eat raw.
It’s so easy! Just preheat your oven toe 350. Spread the flour onto a baking sheet, then bake it for 7 minutes.
That’s it! You’ve just heat treated your flour and you’re ready to make that cookie dough.
These no bake cookie dough pieces let you get all that irresistible cookie dough flavor without any risk! No egg and heat treated flour!
How to store the cookie dough bites
For a softer bite, keep these in the fridge in an air tight container. For best freshness and flavor eat them within a week!
You can also store these in container in the freezer, or mix them directly into the ice cream container!

1/3 cup butter, softened

1. Heat treat the flour by adding it to a baking sheet and baking at 350 for 7 minutes.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. In a bowl combine the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla. Slowly stir in the flour, salt, and white sugar and mix until it reaches cookie dough consistency. Lastly add the chocolate chips. (do this last so they don’t melt from the heat of the flour!)
