half baked cookie dough

One of my favorite treats of all time is cookie dough. Straight up, in a spoon, or right off the mixer, cookie dough. Pretty much the only reason I make cookies. Not really, but my favorite part, for sure. I usually put aside a little unbaked dough in a jar in the fridge, you know, for later.

Usually I just eat spoonfuls for a day or two and it’s gone, but this week I was feeling a little more fancy and made another favorite dessert. Half-baked dough topped with ice cream. You can make a bunch of these in little bowls or ramekins, on a cookie sheet in the oven, or it’s perfect for one or two by just popping in the toaster oven.

The one rule is, it needs to be eaten right from the oven!

Just make your favorite cookie dough, I used this one from Joy the Baker, because everything she makes is delicious. If you keep store-bought cookie dough on hand, you could use that too.

Put a heaping spoonful in each dish. A little more than you would use for a cookie, but not too much. Remember- it will grow as it’s baking!

Bake to your recipe’s instructions, minus a few minutes. I baked mine in the toaster oven at 350 for about 12 minutes. Keep checking so you don’t overcook it. Pull it out of the oven, just before it’s a finished cookie.

I like mine to be a little doughier so I gamble with the uncooked egg thing… *

Top with ice cream! I also sprinkled a little coconut on there, and you could even drizzle chocolate sauce.


*Note: Eating raw cookie dough can be bad for you because there are uncooked eggs in there! I am in no way saying you should do this, mmmkay? So cook it until almost baked. If you want your dessert on the doughier side, you could use a vegan/eggless cookie recipe.

      Ahhh, I do feel bad because it must be a hard transition. But… there’s probably gluten free cookie dough right??

  3. Yes. This. Haha I pretty much bake cookies strictly for the dough too. I actually don’t love cookies when they’re baked. They lose some of that magic taste. Which is a good thing or I’d be a million pounds. I feel the same way about brownie batter. My best friend from high school and I would make brownies just so we could sit and eat the batter while we chatted and then we’d bake whatever was left. Probably why we were best friends. :)
