As a little girl, my father introduced me to the joys of cake batter. I enjoyed that, even if we were warned about the danger of raw egg. Then something else came into my world. Cookie dough was even better to me. I loved the taste, the texture, and the flexibility. I was obviously not the only one that enjoyed cookie dough, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and then others added cookie dough to their repertoire and it became an instant hit.
One year, for my birthday (before kids), I asked TechyDad for a tub of cookie dough for my cake. Skip the other items, I wanted something that really called my name. Much to my surprise, he did this. It should not be a surprise that I have a Cookie Dough World board on Pinterest.
Recently, a lot of my pins were focusing on recipes by Lindsay Landis and her new The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook: Cookies, Cakes, Candies, and More. I have to admit, just looking at the beautiful photos in the book kept me happy and content. One day, TechyDad made a batch of the egg-free raw cookie dough for us to try. It was delicious and I was thrilled. Then, for our anniversary, he bought me the book.
I am definitely intrigued with a lot of the recipes. A few that sound fun to try sooner, rather than later are:
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge <—Hello gift making!
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookie <— Best of both worlds
- Brown Sugar Cookie Dough Layer Cake
- Cookie Dough Mosaic Cheesecake
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bread Pudding
- Malted Cookie Dough Milkshakes
- Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pops
- Cookie Dough Oatmeal Pancakes
- Cookie Dough-Stuffed French Toast
- Cookie Dough Crispy Treats
- Cookie Dough S’Mores
If you love cookie dough, or know someone that does – this is a great gift for them. Lindsay has a great variety of treats that play on old favorites with a splash of cookie dough. Oh and FYI – you can check out other recipes and goodies on her website Love & Olive Oil.
