Did you know this week is Chocolate Chip Cookie Week? Well now you know and now you get to see SIX new recipes- one each day from a different blogger thanks to our host, Meriem of Culinary Couture. How great is that?!
Today, I have a “cookie look-alike” stuffed between TWO large fat hunky browned butter chocolate chip cookies. Yeaa and that stuff in the middle… is the best part! Not only does it taste good, it’s easy to whip up, no need to bake and it’s safe to eat straight from the bowl. Edible (egg-less) chocolate chip cookie dough!
You know when you were a kid and you took that cold raw cookie dough from the fridge with the intention to make cookies but instead you ate half the dough? Yea, that happened a lot in my home. Sometimes I would later regret not following through on the little note stamped on the side of the package, “Do not consume raw.” Now that I’m much wiser, I can’t afford to get sick from making a dumb move of eating raw dough so I’ve figured it out. I figured out how to make edible (egg-less) cookie dough!
It wasn’t until my recent ski trip to Colorado when I walked into a bakery and bought their classic favorite: chocolate chip cookie dough sandwich before I remembered how much I used to love cookie dough. That’s when I realized, I needed to make this myself.
Remember when I mentioned how I wanted to send my friends in Colorado cookies when I made my Browned Butter Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies? Well, it doesn’t look like these cookies are ever going to make it there either. Sorry Nicole. I guess you’ll have to wait till April when I see you again (*shameful sadface*).
I couldn’t help it. My brain versus browned butter CCC with edible cookie dough, that’s a really tough battle to win. Talk about willpower. None there! These sandwich cookies are highly addictive! Yet, I strongly recommend if you like cookie dough then you have to try TRY THIS! You’re gonna love it!
