10 Days of Cookies - Day 6 & Cookies & Crafts for SHES


One of my favorite things about blogging is how we all come together to support each other and the community. Today's posts is in tribute to Sandy Hook Elementary School as part of Cookies and Crafts for Sandy Hook.  Many Bloggers are posting cookie or crafts recipes in tribute.  There are also several bloggers who have Etsy shops who are donating a portion of their proceeds today to Newton Youth and Family services. If you would like to a list of the Etsy shops participating check out the following link from Crazy for Crust - Etsy Shops.   I am on my way over to take a look and I hope you do to.

I choose this recipe because what kid doesn't love to eat cookie dough...and now they can.

Chocolate Cookie Dough Sandwiches

Cookie
  • 1/2 cup (135 gr) butter
  • 1/2 cup (125 gr) light brown sugar 
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1 2/3 cups (250 gr) unbleached all purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder 
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
Cookie Dough  (You will have extra dough to eat)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (14 ounces) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 2/3 cup crushed Hershey's Eggies or Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • Coloured sugar for rolling 
INSTRUCTIONS:

1) Preheat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and espresso powder
2) Combine butter and sugar in a large bowl/mixer bowl and beat together until creamy. Add egg, and vanilla, combine until incorporated
3) Add flour mixture to wet mixture, beating at medium speed until just combined.
4) Turn out cookie dough on to a lightly floured surface and form into a disc. Cover in saran wrap and refrigerator for an hour. If the cookie dough is too firm to roll, allow to soften slightly.
5) On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 1/8 inch thick and cut into 2 ½ inch scalloped circles. Place a on a parchment/silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack.


Make the cookie dough
6) In your mixer bowl or a large bowl, cream the butter, vanilla and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
7) Slowly add flour, alternately with condensed milk, beating well after each addition. Fold in the Eggies/Mini Eggs
8) Depending on what size cutter you use , will depend on how much cookie dough you use.  Make it about 1/4 inch thick.  Then roll in the coloured sugar. 

I love edible cookie dough.  It is so addicting.  I love how you can almost turn any dessert festive.
