Edible Cookie Dough

Now it's time for every girls best friend to be revealed! I found this edible cookie dough recipe in a cookbook and OMG is it amazing. The book is "The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook: Cookies, Cakes, Candies and More" By Lindsay Landis. Could you ask for a better cookbook? I think not.
So today I am posting the base recipe for all of the fun stuff in her book and that is edible cookie dough! Now we all eat the break and bake raw anyways but this is egg free so you can eat it without testing the salmonella gods.

Edible Cookie Dough
1/2 cup (1 stick) room temperature, unsalted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar (the white stuff)
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk or cream (I used vanilla soy milk and it gave it an awesome flavor)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips (really? ha I used about a cup. The more the merrier)

In a large bowl, beat butter and both sugars with an electric mixer on medium until light and fluffy (it takes closer to 3 minutes for this to happen so don't get discouraged.) Mix in milk and vanilla. Stir in flour and sat and mix on low or by hand (use a wood spoon or else you lose some dough to the whisk and no one wants wasted cookie dough) until incorporated. Stir in Chocolate Chips.

Enjoy immediately and often :)

Here is a picture of what my friend Danielle and I did with our cookie dough! Its called Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies. Check out Lindsay's book for the full brownie recipe.
