Be honest, raise your hand!!
My kids do.
They want to help bake just to eat bites of dough.
So cookie dough is supposedly bad for you, those raw eggs and all.
(so far we’re still doing good, but maybe we should quit, just to be sure)
The other day I saw this recipe online for editable cookie dough.
No eggs, nothing bad, (except calories) all pure goodness.
Just eat it up!!
I thought I’d make some and see if they like it or not.
My kids wanted to eat the whole bowl.
Nope. Not gonna happen!
Then I got to thinking… Eric loves Cookie Dough ice cream, but he always complains that they never put enough dough in. And since I didn’t want my kids eating this whole bowl of dough with a big fork, I figured we can solves a few problems at once.
So I softened a big bowl of ice cream, crumbled some dough into it, ok LOTS of dough into it and froze it. Threw the rest of the dough into the freezer in an unmarked Cool Whip bowl hoping to trick the kids. (Didn’t work, they were eating it frozen the other day)
And everyone loved the ice cream. I thought it had a few too many dough chunks in it but Eric was finally happy. Dough in every bite.
That batch was all soon so we whipped up another one tonight.
Here is the recipe, give it a try sometime.
Eat with your fingers, a fork, a spoon, sprinkle on ice cream, mixed in ice cream or just any other way you can think of. If you really love it, make it and hide it in the back of the fridge for your secret snack. Label it onions. 🙂
We’re off to eat some ice cream.
