When Life Gives You Heat...Eat Cookie Dough

I was joking around with the kids that since it was too hot to bake cookies (it's been 110, 111, 112..:*) maybe we should just make cookie dough and eat it. They thought it was a great idea. Since I didn't want a puking kid on top of a sweating one, we cut the eggs and came up with this:

1 stick butter
1 and 1/2 cup flour
1 Tbs. vanilla
2 Tbs Milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sucunat (or brown sugar)
Mix up in mixer till dough is formed
add 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Scoop out with large cookie scoop into little dip cups and serve with a spoon.

They loved it. You don't need much of this, it's pretty rich (not to mention fattening!).

Did you try to cook any of it for cookies? Or was it all gone?

I made pickled veggies today. Ice cold crunchies for tomorrow. Also dark chocolate microwaved a few minutes and poured over walnuts and cooled. Good and yummy snack.

I always loved to eat cookie dough as a child. I will keep this in mind for next month.

No we use this recipe because it did not make much (and they don't need much). Plus, I eliminated the baking soda and eggs so I'm not sure they would bake up right. It's a dough purposefully meant to eat as is.:)
