I received The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook by Lindsay Landis as a gift from the Missus. You can win your own copy of this cookbook by entering my giveaway (at the end of this post). As soon as I read the words "cookie dough frosting", I knew I had to make these. It's a beautiful book, but what first made me want to get it was the fact that the author claims to have perfected making cookie dough that is eggless, so it's safe to eat raw. I never used to worry about eating raw dough until my son came along and I was faced with having to tell him "no" to having a taste. This book solves that problem (and the problem that is my sweet tooth as well).
So, to make these Soft Sugar Cookies with Cookie Dough Frosting...
That last step freaked me out a bit. I was stressed about the dough "coming together", but it did!
Clearly, I have no shame or I would never show you the amateurish job I did on rolling out the dough. Oh well.
The next step is where I sent a mushroom cloud of powdered sugar all over the kitchen. Note to self: when mixing powdered sugar, do so on "low".
All that's left to do is frost the cookies. The Missus and the Boy loved these (I did too!). I took some to work and my teacher friends devoured them and demanded that I bring in more the following day. Praise indeed.
Here's how to enter my giveaway to win your own copy of "The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook". Good luck!
