Cookie Dough Frosting is a real thing my friends … and oh-my-word, it is amazing. All those cookie dough fans out there, this one is for us. The process is similar to making normal frosting but with just a twist to mimic cookie dough. (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free and Vegan Friendly)
I know I’m on a cookie dough bender lately, my hope is you just jump onto this cookie dough train and ride it all the way to happy cookie dough land.
While I was visiting my sister a last month to help with the newest addition to the family, there was a request to make my Edible Cookie Dough. The total unhealthy but totally delicious version.
My sister has two kids under two right now. We don’t need any explanation of why we wanted the unhealthy version, do we?
The first batch disappeared within a day. We all would sneak a spoonful out of the jar here and there and before we knew it – GONE. The day before I left, I made her a batch of the perfect hard boiled eggs, kale salad (which is totally a recipe she taught me) and another batch of edible cookie dough.
The problem was my sister is definitely not a baker (again she has two kids under two where the hell would she find the time?) and we ran out of brown sugar. I had to get creative and ended up using powdered sugar instead to add the sweetness.
Frosted onto brownies.
Oh my word, is this making you drool too?
What I had envisioned in my head totally became a reality with this cookie dough frosting. So lather up the cookie dough goodness and enjoy!
