Back story: I LOVE cookie dough. I am a cookie dough fiend. I often like it more than the baked cookies themselves. Needless to say, I usually sneak A LOT when I am baking. I know the raw eggs can contain salmonella and get me sick. But cookie dough is just so dang good that I eat it anyway. [my husband and I even got salmonella once from a batch of ice cream we made several years ago, but obviously the experience wasn't terrible enough to keep me from testing my luck.] When I was pregnant, I craved cookie dough... I don't think it was an actual pregnancy craving, because I craved it a lot before I was pregnant, but either way, I really wanted it. Once, when I was baking cookies, I snitched a little bit of dough, but then I felt horrible about it. It is one thing to risk my own health, but I was risking the health of my baby too! So I vowed to give up the cookie dough for the full nine months. It was tough. Then I found this recipe. (It was online somewhere, but there are so many different versions out there that I can't figure out where it came from... sorry!) No eggs... so it is safe to eat raw! It saved my life! Well, maybe not... it probably just caused me to gain way more than I should have. But it is super yummy and is now one of my favorite recipes!
It will seriously take you only about 5 minutes to make and you will wonder why you have never made it before. Seriously.
Safe-to-Eat Eggless Cookie Dough
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk
1 cup flour
pinch of salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Just mix the ingredients up with a fork and you will have your very own batch of delicious, safe-to-eat cookie dough! Hooray! Stick it in the fridge for safekeeping. It firms up and tastes even better when it is cold.
You can add whatever else you'd like to the dough - I have added white chocolate chips, m&ms, coconut, and oatmeal. Anything goes!
Don't try to bake it though... it probably won't work.
My favorite way to eat this is: 1) by the spoonful... or 2) as a topping on vanilla ice cream. If you can think of even better ways to eat it, let me know!
You're welcome :) Hehehe.
