The short answer is: it's awesome.
Andy Kryza of Thrillist realized that because Ben & Jerry's brand cookie dough ice cream is wonderful as ice cream, there would be a good chance that it would make great cookies as well.
He made small balls of cookie dough from the cookie dough ice cream, which he reports baked pretty well. But it's not necessarily a good idea:
It's essentially the same as the minis, but less flat and way more flavorful. If somebody said this was made with store-bought dough, I'd absolutely believe it, then laugh and inform them that most store-bought dough doesn't cost $4 per cookie. Then I'd patiently listen as they scolded me for wasting money and ice cream.
