You’d think, for as many “for two” or “single serve” recipes I’ve made this week that I up and eloped and now only have to bake for two people OR I ran away and am now living in an apartment by myself with only a microwave, oats, and my trusty ninja (who needs a husband?)
You think I’m kidding. Check this out:
Coconut raisin energy bites FOR TWO
Coffee mug cake FOR ONE
Chinese vegetable noodle bowl FOR ONE
Fruit smoothie FOR TWO
You’d never guess I live with and bake for 10 people based on those recipes above. Sheesh, I’ve got to work on this.
This cookie dough was made in honor of Stephen. His birthday was yesterday and he is officially a whopping 11 years old. He is a pretty cool guy … but he doesn’t like chocolate, soooo yeah, baking with him can be hard. He loves it, but come on, you are pretty limited (in my humble opinion) if you don’t like chocolate.
But, because it was his birthday and he loves cookie dough, I whipped this up for him. Its nice because its no bake and ready in all of five minutes. Which was good, because I was trying to blow up water balloons to decorate the house with before he got home from errands with Mom. Note to self, if you want your cheeks to feel like they are on fire and nearly pass out from lack of oxygen; try blowing up water balloons. Its great.
This cookie dough truly is great. I had no idea what to call it – cookie dough cake? raw cookie dough? non chocolate delight? <– (that is a really good recipe Stephen helped come up with by the way.)
So I just stuck with the forever catchy and not forever alone “for two.” It tastes just like raw cookie dough, but is safe for those who are concerned with raw egg.
Happy Birthday Stephen! You are worth the purple face, the smell of butterscotch (it’s not my favorite), and, well, who am I kidding, I’d go to the moon for you. After eating more than my fair share of this cookie dough (minus the butterscotch … chocolate chips would be nice)
- ¼ cup all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons oil (I used melted coconut oil)
- 1 tablespoon milk (I used almond)
- pinch baking soda and salt
- butterscotch chips (I used a couple tablespoons)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon/sugar mixture
- Whisk flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon together.
- Pour in vanilla, oil, and milk. Stir until combined.
- Add in butterscotch chips and stir.
- Roll into a cookie shape and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
