Recipe for Edible (Egg-less) Cookie Dough

I don't know if you are like me or not, but I LOVE cookie dough.  There is just something about mixing the cookies and getting ready to bake them, and all the while snitching little bites of that creamy cookie dough. Mmmm....yum!

Now I realize that some people don't like it, and that is fine.  For those of you that do--I have found an absolutely fabulous recipe!  I used to eat raw cookie dough before I would bake cookies, but then my girls would ask if they could have a little and I felt bad because I didn't want them to get sick from the eggs.  So I looked up and tried different edible (egg-less) recipes.  A lot of them were just ok. 

So one night for mommy-daughter night, my daughter Kyrah and I found this cookie dough recipe and made it together and then proceeded to eat it by the spoonful.   This one was so yummy and it actually tasted like the the real thing! Without the eggs of course.   (Don't worry, we only ate a little bit at a time).  

Here is the recipe!  I really like oatmeal in mine so I milled some oatmeal into flour and used that as part of my flour.  But you can just use regular flour if you prefer.  I hope you enjoy it as much as Kyrah and I did!

Edible Egg-less Cookie Dough Recipe

1 stick unsalted butter, softened 
3/4 cups packed brown sugar 
1 teaspoons vanilla  
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1.5-2 cups all-purpose flour (OR 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of milled quick oats) (I had to just add a little flour at a time until it was the right consistency I wanted.)
2 tablespoons milk 
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips 
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (We also used butterscotch chips in ours, but that is optional) 

DIRECTIONS With your mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar. Add in vanilla and salt, mix. Add in flour. The mixture is going to be crumbly at this point. Add in 2 tablespoons of milk and mix. Now the dough will look like the cookie dough you’re used to seeing. Fold in 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Freeze for up to three months. 

Happy eating!  

Until next time~
