I have a confession. When I make cookies, I really don’t want the cookies…I want the dough. I’m not even really a cookie fan (unless there’s serious chocolate involved)…ah, but the dough…It’s. Just. So. Addicting.
So yesterday I invented cookie dough that is, politically speaking, “safe” to eat. A vegan version. Frankly, whether or not there are raw eggs in the dough I’ll still pick away at it…but this is definitely a friendlier version. At first I wasn’t sure what I was doing. I was playing around with making a cookie dough party dip (I’ve been seeing these go around and they look amazing!), but I didn’t have anything to dunk in it. Then I thought I’ll make cookie dough bars that you freeze…which I did make (picture below), but then I thought people might not be as odd as me to eat cookie dough straight from the freezer.
My last idea was the best…cookie dough ice-cream. Yes.
I have to admit, that if I were to go to Dairy Queen, (proverbially speaking, of course) that the Cookie Dough Blizzard is what I would go for. Okay…once in a very, very blue moon I do go and get a small blizzard. I know, they are complete junk…but I figure once a year… (wow, there is a lot confessing going on in this post!) Anywhoo…obviously, the idea sounded very inviting. One serving would be about 1 tablespoon.
Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
- ¾ cup organic wheat flour
- ½ cup organic cane sugar
- ½ cup Earth Balance
- ½ cup chocolate chips (vegan)
- 1 tsp. vanilla essence
Cream the margarine and the sugar really well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. This makes enough for 13 servings of ice-cream (for about a half a cup of ice-cream) so I just keep a bowl in the freezer for when the occasion arises.
You can use this as a topping on my vegan “Blizzard” recipe…simply substitute the “oreos” for the cookie dough. Or use it on my vegan vanilla milkshake! Or maybe you prefer “Oreo Ice-Cream” over cookie dough…so then, eat this!
Or stick with the cookie dough version…
