I love eating cookie dough. I’ve never been that worried about eating eggy dough, but now that I’ve done two pregnancies and have two littles running around trying to horn in on my treats, I have to be more cautious. I’ve done a few posts on eggless dough, but one bright commenter reminded me that I’d forgotten to make an edible peanut butter cookie dough. Clearly, that needed a remedy ASAP.
And here it is. This is based off my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe (from the 1972 Betty Crocker Cookbook). It has a strong peanut butter flavor, and is great just as is. I added some chocolate chips for this post for two reasons: 1) The picture looks better, and 2) It made the dough taste like those peanut butter thumbprint cookies everyone makes around Christmas, which is kind of a plus. Oh, and I guess we could also add 3) Chocolate is pretty much always welcome 🙂
I whipped this up in less than 5 minutes – and it’s a no bake, so with those hotter temperatures coming at us in the next few months, this could be the perfect solution for that sweet tooth 🙂
