Cookie Dough!!

'Tis the season for holiday baking and cookie tasting! But what if you are in a rush and do not have time to actually bake cookies? What if you are dying for some yummy cookies, but with the turkey, rolls, and dressing, there is absolutely no space for a pan of cookies? What if you are one of those people who cannot wait until the cookies bake and just like to eat the dough raw? Fear not, I have a solution. Cookie dough balls!! Made without eggs, these peanut butter cookie dough balls are like eating raw cookie dough, but you do not have to worry about getting salmonella or the thought of eating an uncooked egg. Here's a recipe for my peanut butter flavor, and I have a chocolate chip cookie dough balls recipe from past cookie dough cravings.


Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls (1)

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls
makes 16
1 cup all-purpose flour
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
6 tbsp butter, softened
3-4 tbsp milk

Mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugar. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, adding enough milk to form a nice dough. Roll about 2 tablespoons of the dough at a time out into balls. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

You might just want to pack up some of those delicious cookie dough balls along with a nice card to show appreciation to teachers, pastors, or service people. What is a better way to thank someone than by giving them a heartfelt card and delicious treat?
