This is a super easy dessert recipes that takes on the classic cookie cake. With a serving size for ten people, make sure to grab every spoon that you have in your kitchen and dig in! The perfect communal dessert to share amongst friends and family.
This recipe is made using Graza “Drizzle” Extra Virgin Olive Oil, where EVOO is generously drizzled over the ice cream and cookie base. This helps the ice cream to keep it’s deliciously creamy and smooth texture, whilst adding the subtle flavour notes of olive and pepperiness to the dish.
When topping your ice cream, make sure to add a good pinch of Maldon Salt. This will enhance the sweetness from the cream and counteract the bitter notes from the cacao nibs in the cookie dough.
Here is how to make the ten-spoon dessert:
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- Open the package of cookie dough (we love Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough) and place the entire pack into the bottom of a Dutch oven.
- Press the cookie dough into an even layer and place dutch oven into the preheated oven.
- Bake according to package directions or whenever the cookies (one giant cookie really) look golden brown and delicious!
- Scoop most or all of your favourite vanilla ice cream (we love Noose Honey Vanilla Bean Gelato Frozen Yogurt) into the centre of the Big Cookie Doughnut.
- While still warm, use a spoon or ice cream scoop to remove the center of the *Big Cookie,* turning it into a BIG COOKIE DOUGHNUT. “Save” the part you’ve removed as a chef’s treat!
- Squeeze oodles of Drizzle over the ice cream and cookie.
- Top with a generous sprinkling of flaky salt (a necessity!) and any other of your favourite ice cream toppings. When in season, we love fresh strawberries and blueberries.
- Gather 10 of your favourite people, give them each a spoon and dig in! Enjoy!
