Don't tell Daddy...
But we sort of ate cookie dough for breakfast. I'll admit, not one of my proudest moments, though it might be one of my coolest parent ever moments. Too bad she's too young to know it!
Now some of you are probably already scolding me in your heads - how dare she give that toddler raw egg! And she's pregnant! For shame! - but before you grab for your pitchfork, relax. It's an eggless cookie dough recipe made for eating. No it's not sugar/fat/calorie free, but it sure is a yummy special treat!
We made it this morning and admittedly ate a couple spoonfuls each before dropping the rest by spoonfuls onto a waxed paper-lined plate and popping in the freezer. Because in my book, the only thing better than raw cookie dough is frozen cookie dough.
Ladies, is this not the stuff of dreams? Imagine opening your freezer to this - even while pregnant! Best. Idea. Ever.
Here's how we made it:
Eggless Cookie Dough
- 1/4 c. Butter, softened
- 3/4 c. Brown sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 t. Vanilla extract
- 1/4 c. Milk
- 1 c. Flour- 1/3 c. (ish) M&Ms or chocolate chips
1. Cream butter and sugar together. Add salt, vanilla, and milk.
2. Stir in the flour until combined, then fold in M&Ms or chocolate chips.
3. Devour or drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined plate and freeze for about an hour, then transfer to a freezer bag.
*be sure to label! These are not for baking, but work well to spread on graham crackers, chop up into ice cream, eat by the spoonful, etc.
