Chocolate chip cookie dough sandwiches....What I will be eating daily in heaven.

There is nothing better than a good chocolate chip cookie. Not even a bowl of ice cream. (Well, unless the bowl of ice cream of full of cookie dough and cookie chunks.) That's why our main course for dinner tonight was cookies. No joke.

And those chips ahoy and other pieces of styrofoam?....Let's not even talk about those. Why waste calories on wannabe-so-called-cookies when you can make yourself this delectable chocolate chip cookie dough sandwhich straight from cookie-dough-heaven?

Sometimes it's difficult to balance the amount of dough eaten and cooked cookies...so why not just put 'em together and eat both at once?! Place a scoop of dough between two cookies. Try it. You'll love it. Promise. You can't be a true chocolate chip cookie (dough) fan until you have tried this.

Here's a delightful cookie dough recipe. Remember, you will need a little self control to not consume all the dough before you bake at least a pan.

Chocolate Chip Cookies 
(Everyone claims to have the best recipe.....maybe someday I will become a cookie dough recipe researcher. But for now, this recipe is just delicious. Make sure to use real butter, real vanilla, whip the butters and sugars until the colors lighten, and watch them carefully when they bake and they should turn out. At least that always seems to work for me:)

  • 1 c. butter (slightly softened)
  • 1 c. crisco
  • 1 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 1/2(ish) c. flour
  • bag of chocolate chips
Cream the butter, crisco, and sugars until lighter color and fluffy-ish. Add the vanilla and eggs, keep mixing. Add soda and salt, then flour. The dough should be not too sticky when touched. If not sure, bake just a few at a time and add flour if they are flat. Mix in chocolate chips and bake @350 for 8-10 minutes. (Because lets be honest, times recipes give never seem to be right..) They should be just starting to brown on the top, slightly puffed. Enjoy:)
