If your family is as nuts over chocolate chip cookie dough as mine, maybe you can relate to my thoughts of, “Why even bother baking the cookies?” After years of my family begging me to not bother, I finally came up with a recipe to their liking – no oven needed.
Cream together one and a half sticks of butter
2/3 cup of packed brown sugar
and 1/3 cup of superfine white sugar
Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of salt
and 1 cup of flour and mix together well.
Stir in 1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips – Amount optional & chopped walnuts are optional too!
Roll into one inch balls, place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and place in freezer for about a half an hour.
Melt about 1 bag of semi sweet chocolate with about a tablespoon of added shortening for shine and dip cookie balls into chocolate. If you are making these for Christmas, you can put some red & green sprinkles on top to add a festive touch.
Of course, if you are a teenager who happens to be roaming through the kitchen while mom is blogging, you’ve just hit the jackpot. Why not add little ice cream balls too?
Yummers! Best if stored in refrigerator or freezer, and far away from anyone who is trying to diet.
