Today I wanted to share how to make cookie dough. Cookie dough is my absolute favorite thing to eat in the world. I know you are not suppose to eat it raw but I am guilty x10. When I was in college, I lived with my grandmother (my mom’s mom) for a brief period in Florida and we always watched TV at night and ate Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough. She loved it as much as me, maybe even more. Last weekend the kids and I made chocolate chip cookie dough bars and I must say, it brought me back to those days as a kid in Florida with my gram. I swear she sits on my shoulder as my angel from heaven and says, “have some for me!!!” 😉
My absolute favorite dessert on the planet.
EASY Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars
- 1 cup butter or margarine
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3 cups flour
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 3/4 tsp. baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Crushed walnuts optional
- Cream butter and sugars together in mixer
- Add eggs and vanilla and continue to mix
- Slowly add flower, salt and baking soda
- Mix until smooth
- Fold in chocolate chips
- Spread evenly in greased 9x13 glass baking dish
- Bake for 15-20 minutes on 350
- I prefer them a bit gooey so I tend to cook a little less.
I usually add more vanilla as I prefer taste but feel free to use less if you don’t care for it. I always add an extra 1/2 – 1 tsp. This dough would also be perfect for valentines day using a heart cookie cutter. These bars lasted about 2 hours and only because I made everyone wait until after I took pictures. Now that you know how to make cookie dough, would you use chocolate chips or another candy? M&M’s are perfect too!
