How To Make Perfect Cookie Dough

I don't like to toot my own horn, but I'm fucking amazing. I've recently discovered the perfect cookie dough recipe. But - the genius is in fact not just in how scrummy the cookies are, but the fact that this dough has no egg in it, and so is not only suitable for vegans and pregnant ladies, but it also means that it doesn't need to be cooked. This opens up a whole word of deliciously cellulite producing opportunities...

This cookie dough can be made in bulk, and kept in the freezer if you like. Then you can make cookies quickly whenever you want to, or you can use it in any of the following ways:

  • Mixed in with ice cream
  • Used as icing ontop of chocolate chip cupcakes
  • Adding to a fudge recipe and making 'Cookie Dough Fudge'
  • Baked in a springform tin and used as a cheesecake base
  • Unbaked and spread ontop of a cheesecake instead of a topping
  • Added to a 'Rocky Road' mixture
Here's the recipe:

165g margarine (salted)
75g caster sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup
3 tbsp (ish) milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
260g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g (ish) of chocolate chips

  1. Put oven on 200 Celsius (ish).
  2. Add mix marg and sugar until fluffy. You will need an electric mixer/whisk for this.
  3. Add and mix the syrup, milk and vanilla with the electric mixer also.
  4. Add the flour, bicarb and chocolate chips and mix by hand.
  5. Make into teaspoon sized balls and place on baking tray in the middle of the oven. After 10 minutes keep and eye on them until they look done.
Easy, peasy! I'm liking the sound of that cookie dough fudge... that may be next on my agenda...

Thanks! Can't take all the credit though, it's a recipe I found somewhere ages ago, which I altered. :)

I came here from Charade to see this, and I'm SO trying this. I went vegetarian a couple months ago, and even though I've been having some dairy and eggs still, I'm trying to cut it down. I couldn't find an easy cookie dough recipe, but this may be the one-- I'm SO trying this :)
