So you’ve probably heard of Annie The Baker. If you love cookie dough more than you love the cookie I am sure you have.
Annie created a cookie that is truly for the cookie dough lover. And I am one of those cookie dough lovers! I totally have to taste test the dough before I cook the cookies. I could eat all the cookie dough and never even care to have the baked cookies. How about you?
You can buy Annie The Baker’s creations here.
I searched the internet for a recipe like her cookie dough balls and came across this one from The Chic Life blog. The chocolate chip cookie dough balls turned out perfectly like a soft cookie on the outside and on the inside cookie dough!!! So DELICIOUS!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
Inspired by Annie the Baker
- 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 stick butter, softened/room-temp
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda.
- In a medium bowl, mix sugars and butter till creamy. (I used a handheld mixer, but you could probably just use a whisk). Add egg and vanilla and mix till combined.
- Mix wet into the dry. Note: it will appear there is not enough liquid for the amount of dry ingredients, but continue mixing. It will form into a dough, it will just be a firm dough. See tips above for combining. Careful to not overmix.
- Gently fold chocolate chips into the dough, without overmixing.
- Refrigerate dough for at least 20 minutes before using a small sorbet scoop to scoop out dough into small mounds. Roll each mound into a ball and spread evenly on a baking sheet, leaving roughly 2-3 inches between each ball.
- Bake balls for 9-11 minutes, depending on how set you want your centers. If you use egg, and you’re paranoid like me, you can use a meat thermometer to ensure the centers of the balls are at least 160 degrees F, which many web sites say is the safe temp to eat eggs.
- Let your dough balls rest on the baking sheet to cool at least 5-10 minutes.
Thank you Chic Life for the recipe!
If I have to eat my cookie dough baked, this is the way I want it! I couldn’t ask for anything better :) Now I just wish some of Annie The Bakers creations would show up on my front door. Or maybe someday I will order them for myself!
I am making up a batch of these cookies tonight to take to a NYE party!
Happy New Years Eve!!!!!!!
