Egg-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

It's starting to get warm around here which means it's a good time for a cold treat. A favorite around here is frozen cookie dough and the recipe I use is egg-free so no safety issues. It's also great for putting in some homemade vanilla ice cream!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon water
Chocolate chips (to taste)

Cream butter and sugar.
Add other ingredients and mix well.

Roll in balls (small balls if using for ice cream) and flash freeze* until firm, about 20 minutes.

*To flash freeze cover a cookie sheet with natural wax paper and make sure none of the items touch.

Don't forget to check back often for more snack recipes all month long!

Personally, I hate raw cookie dough, but I know I'm in the minority there. My sister makes cookie dough with pasteurized eggs that come in a carton (yuck) just so she can eat the dough safely. But if you know you are just going to eat the raw dough, and not make them into cookies, this is a banner idea. And homemade vanilla ice cream? Yum!

Sounds evil. But I am totally sold. :-)

Yeah I like it, my husband LOVES it. He gets annoyed that I won't let him eat it when I make cookies haha. I will let him eat it if I use eggs from my mom's chickens but this is even better.

I also used them in blended coffee the other day, that recipe is on my blog and it's quite good. :)
