CuteEverything More than 1 year ago
I was pretty excited when I first heard about The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook, especially since it was said to contain special “no egg” cookie dough recipes! Cookie making has been one of my main hobbies since I was a child and I have to admit that sometimes the dough tasted better than the final product. But while I wasn’t aware of the risks of raw dough as a child, I certainly am now, so I’d much prefer to avoid any possible issues with the uncooked dough. I had assumed that it was only about chocolate chip cookie dough, but the over fifty recipes actually use several variations of it, including gingerbread, Mexican chocolate, sugar, peanut butter and more. And some of the recipes focus more on the flavors of cookie dough, like the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pudding or the Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pops. It also has suggestions for making Candy, Cookies, Cakes, Pies, Frozen Treats and more, but when I saw the Breakfast Ideas, I knew that was the first thing I wanted to try. I went with the Cookie Dough Filled Crepes. We love making both sweet and savory filled crepes, but this was a new one for me. We made the crepes and then spread on the cookie dough filling and sprinkled them with mini chocolate chips and rolled them up. The warm crepes melted the filling a bit, which was delicious! They are a new favorite, but I think we’ll mostly eat them for dessert!

This cookbook is amazing. It's very entertaining, has beautiful photos, and the recipes are easy to follow. Lindsay encourages you to make your own flavor choices but gives you wonderful recipes to work with. Eating raw cookie dough has never been more fun because there are so many ways to play with is (cookie sandwiches, truffles, ice cream, etc). I reviewed it on my blog (including a cookbook giveaway) Treats With a Twist after making my own healthier version of one of the recipes and I absolutely loved the results of what I made. The cookie dough in the basic recipe is fabulous enough, but the things that can be done with it will amaze the biggest cookie dough fans.

This is me. I probably eat about 2 cookies worth of dough before it's all said and done. And then I don't want the cookies. lol So when Quirk sent me this cookbook, I was over the moon! So you know I got busy...well once I remembered to pick up the stuff. I didn't want just chocolate chips, I wanted something that was just for me. I bought toffee bits and mini chocolate chips (these are what Lindsay recommends for the chocolate chip cookie dough). At the beginning of the book she has the recipe for the chocolate chip cookie dough and after that she has all the cool things you can do with it. I thought it was going to be a huge batch, but really it probably would have made about a dozen of these little balls. I used my trusty ice cream scoop that I use when I bake cookies. The boys enjoyed it as much as I did, although we all thought it was too sweet. So next time I will use less sugar. I also want to try the edible peanut butter cookie dough. And yes, with the peanut butter dough she has a recipe for Peanut Butter cups. YUM! Now the minute I find chocolate worth melting, I will be trying these! And there are candies that I would describe as a kind of truffle...just balling up the dough and pouring chocolate over it. On the cover there are conversion charts. She offers suggestions on equipment and ingredients. Her introduction is well written, so you get to know the author before you jump into her recipes. And her recipes are pleasing to the eye and easy to follow. On the page with the chocolate chip cookie dough she has some variations including how to go vegan and gluten-free. Oh wow - Oatmeal Raisin...wonder if CW would eat it. Do I recommend this cookbook? Yes, it's fun for grownups like me who enjoy cookie dough. It would also easily be something you can do with your kids, the recipes are simple and relatively little cooking is involved.
