So don’t get me wrong, salmonella is very scary, but who can resist chocolate chip cookie dough? I am not advocating eating cookie dough with raw eggs, but I have done it since childhood and there have been no side effects; except weight gain. Nowadays though, you have to be more careful. So I have a recipe for eggless cookie dough.
Let me tell you, I make it for the deli I work for and people get downright cranky if we run out! I am now making a 4 times batch at least once a week if not more often and I make economy size containers too. People are going gaga for this stuff, but what’s not to love.
I use the food processor to make it at work, but you can do it with a hand mixer, or if desperate, by hand. That last might be the way to go so you can work off some of the calories before you even eat this.
Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 4 oz (8T) butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 T half and half
- 1 cup chocolate chips
I put the sugars in first, then the butter in small chunks, and the flour. I pulse this a few times, then I turn the processor on while I add the vanilla and the half and half.
I then add the chips and mix by hand with a rubber spatula.
This mixture will last at least a week in the fridge, or at least as long as the half and half is good for, cause that and the butter are the only ingredients that have expiration dates shorter than a year. If you want it to last longer, you can freeze it.
This dough will not work if you bake it. You will get a sweet puddle, that will probably harden into a brick?? Im not sure exactly what will happen without the egg, but it usually has moisture, and gluing properties when using eggs. It also lightens the mixture, think of meringues how light and fluffy they are, using just eggs and sugar.
Anyway, the whole point of making this recipe is to not bake, but to eat the dough. Immediate gratification without the danger of pathogens.
