What happens when you make cookies out of Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough ice cream?

Could it really work?

Feature

Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough is arguably the best ice cream you can get for under a fiver - we say 'arguably' like anyone would bother to argue against it. But have you ever been tucking into a tub and wondered: "Is this actually cookie dough? Like, if you rolled this stuff into cookie shapes and baked them, what would happen?"

Well wonder no more.

Intrepid Imgur user hallucinoJER set out to do what Jesus never could: turning ice cream into cookies. Luckily for everyone, hallucinoJER documented the entire process. Let's take a look at what happened.

It's messy, but deeply important work

Caught you drooling, didn't we? But please, control yourself

All the delicious nuggets of cookie dough removed

But once all the ice cream has been removed, things start to look promising

They did it! It totally worked! Unbelievable!

Well, entirely believable, really. It shouldn't be surprising that cookie dough turns into cookies when it works, but you don't really think of Ben & Jerry's brand of cookie dough as real cookie dough.

Well then, you can put your fears to bed - that shit is legit.

Wait, what's going on now?
