As much as I love warm, freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, I wouldn’t mind gobbling on no-bake egg-less cookie dough when the mood strikes. This mix of cookie ingredients which is edible as is or can be cut up and baked as cookies is among my go-to sweet treats that doesn’t require much effort on my part. There are enough variations that are pre-made and can be picked up from stores but I’d still prefer mine homemade. I’d like to think that I’m the master of my own cookie dough recipe. After all, there’s no baking involved and I know that I can manage just fine with mixing and matching the right ingredients.
Countless Cookie Dough Recipe Variations
From the number of cookie dough recipe experiments that I’ve tried thus far, I can’t say that I have a particular favorite. I just love every single one of them probably because my sweet tooth cravings are always met with great satisfaction every time I dig in on these spoonful or bowlful of heavenly cookie dough blends. And because I love variety and I immensely enjoy playing around with ingredients, I have tasted healthy dough bites as well as the not-so-healthy ones. I have tried them as dips for fresh fruits and crackers or as filling for cupcakes and topping for ice creams. Cookie dough bites are perfect with smoothies and it’s my ultimate ultra sweet refreshment to combat the summer heat.
One thing that I love with this treat is versatility. The dough is so adaptable that you will seldom go wrong with personal concoctions. I’ve tried my much loved cookie dough recipe with coffee powder, peanut butter, oatmeal, whole wheat flour, dates and raisins. They may differ in taste and provide different levels of satisfaction but the results are almost always a success and rarely a failure.
A Taste of Heaven with Cookie Dough
Regardless of the key ingredients though, one thing that I love on my cookie dough recipe is the addition of chocolate. Whether it’s M&Ms, Reese, Nutella, Ghirardelli or ordinary chocolate chips, recipes with chocolates are heaven for me. The distinct sweetness that comes from chocolates makes the dough extra special and the taste is just not a bowlful or spoonful of heaven without it.
In general, making cookie dough is unbelievably easy and that’s another thing that put this treat to a league of its own. Egg-less cookie dough recipe options are among the easiest to make because you can dig in right after you’ve mixed and blended the ingredients. But that doesn’t mean that recipes with raw eggs are harder to whip. They’re just as easy but they’re not always the safest to gobble down right out from the bowl. You may need to freeze it for at least 30 minutes to take care of the raw egg ingredient. Nonetheless, cookie dough is by far one of the easiest no-bake desserts that you can make in your kitchen. Sometimes I love whipping my cookie dough recipe more than my favorite chocolate cookie recipe because of how incredibly simple and easy it is to make.
