  • 1. In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugars until no lumps remain, 1-2 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract, scraping the sides of the bowl to make sure all of the ingredients are incorporated. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and mix until smooth. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll chilled dough into smooth, tablespoon-size balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Flatten balls slightly into 3/4-inch disks. Place disks about 2 inches apart on parchment or Silpat lined baking sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until cookie edges are slightly golden brown. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
  • 3. To prepare the cookie dough filling, beat together butter and brown sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Mix in flour, powdered sugar, and salt on low speed until incorporated. Slowly add heavy cream and vanilla extract and beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  • 4. To assemble, sandwich 1 heaping tablespoon of filling between two cookies. Press cookies lightly until filling spreads to the edges. Repeat with remaining cookies.
  • Note: Sandwiches can be stored refrigerated in an airtight container, for up to 3 days. Let them sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

  1. Definitely cookie-dough! Whenever we bake cookies I eat more of the dough than the baked cookie.

  2. That’s a tough one. I’ve been a cookie dough lover since I was a child but I’m beginning to really love baked cookies just as much. What a quandry!

  3. Hands down, raw cookie dough. I have to stop myself from eating the whole bowl so there will be some left to bake!

  4. I guess it depends on where in the cooking making process you ask me. If you ask me during the dough stage, then I would say cookie dough. But right after a chocolate chip cookie has come out of the oven and they are all warm and gooey, well, then I would say the cookie. What came first, the chicken or the egg?

  5. While the buttery crunch of a baked cookie can’t be beat, I’d still choose the cookie dough! And all I can think looking at these cookies is that they’d be even better dipped 1/2 way into melted chocolate 🙂

  6. wow! these look amazing! i am a lover of both so these cookies look perfect for me. but if i had to choose i guess i’d have to pick baked chocolate chip cookies.

  7. I have to say that a warm, oozy, fresh baked cookie with a cold glass of milk can’t be beat! So, make mine baked, please!

  8. Well, I WANT to say dough, because it’s ready faster — but I also looooove baked cookies! (Ideally gooey…so it must be dough 🙂

  9. Baked cookies because there is no guilt or worry about eating raw eggs. With this recipe you get the best of both worlds since the filling has no eggs! 😀

  10. Is that question even possible to answer?! I’ll say baked cookies but must add that half the cookie dough is usually gone before they reach their finished state!

  11. I love cookies!! It always seems that I can eat more cookies than dough so that’s better in my mind. 🙂

  12. Baked – but there’s something naughty about eating the dough. When you can sneak it, you gotta just go for it! Yum!

  13. I like them both!! I think my favorite though is slightly underbaked cookies. That way you have the doughy centers, and the baked outsides. YUM!

  14. I LOVE raw cookie dough. I enjoy baking cookies because I can eat half the dough while the cookies bake.

  15. Cookie dough of course. Christmas of my 7th grade year I use to sneak down to the basement frige and snack on the choco chip cookie dough. Two fingers full per trip. Then I would wait until my mom was out of the house and I would have to make another batch. I had to replace the batch 4 times that Christmas. I was obsessed. But it was oh so yummy.

  16. Definitely COOKIE DOUGH 🙂 The best cookies are the ones that are still fabulously doughy, even after cooking!

  17. Cookie dough is my favorite! I’ll usually freeze some dough with the intention of baking it later but that never happens, I always end up eating it!

  18. Oh my gosh, this cookbook looks awesome! I am totally the dough queen around here, not just with cookies but I love eating any type of dough/batter — biscuits, pancakes, muffins, etc. Raw is usually better than baked.

    I actually have a small tupperware full of frozen cookie dough balls in my freezer right now that I stashed away the last time I made cookies. I have them hidden in back so my husband doesn’t find them!

  19. I think it depends on the recipe. I made some brown sugar cookies the other day and the dough was pretty rich, but I ate a ton of baked cookies… Then again when I make Toffee Chocolate Chip cookies I never seem to end up with the 4 dozen cookies it says it makes

  20. I loved baked cookies but in the right mood cookie dough is just what I need!
    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  21. Cookie dough hands down- because it’s wonderful, and when you’ve had enough it becomes a cookie!

  22. I like cookie dough better. Whenever I make cookies, I eat so much of the dough that I don’t even want cookies anymore by the time they’re baked!

  23. I’m a baked cookie lover. I’ve always been a little squeamish to eat more than just a lick of batter of anything with eggs in it. However, I am seeing a lot of eggless, meant to be eaten raw, dough recipes lately. I may have to experiment.

  24. Duh. Cookie dough are totally better! Cookie dough cookies, ice cream… You name it and I’ll love it!

  25. I love the cookie dough the best! I always have to sneak some when I bake cookies with my daughter:)

  26. I love cookie dough! I don’t bake because I will eat all the cookie dough before I can make the cookies.

  27. Cookie dough is a gift from the gods!! I always test out my dough before baking because if the dough is good the cookie will be great 🙂

  28. Which do I like better? Who says I have to choose?! 🙂 It’s like picking your favorite child!!!
    I guess if I HAD to choose, I’d say I like cookies better because nothing beats that warm, melted chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven 😀

  29. I love cookie dough ever since i was a little kid–being a rascal, i remember stealing the dough when one of my older sisters would put it on top of the fridge i some how got up there. Now as a mom of three my kids and husband go crazy over it as well, oh the little things in life that bring such joy :)!!

  30. It sort of depends for me…I definetely like chocolate chip cookie dough more than the cookies, unless its my go-to recipe. But, I’m not a fan of oatmeal cookie dough. In that case, cookies surpass dough.

  31. Definitely cookie dough – when I was a teen I would make batches of cookie dough when my parents were gone and just keep it in the fridge and munch away…….still love the dough and my kids do too!

  32. I love baked cookies the best….especially when they are right out of the oven with a cold glass of milk…mmmmmm good!

  33. I think it depends on which cookie I am making, usually I like the finished product better, but chocolate chip cookies are my exception – I prefer the dough!

  34. I do love cookie dough and usually end up eating my fair share ;), but you can’t beat the smell of warm cookies baking in the oven!

  35. Oh man that sounds delicious!!!

    I don’t think I can pick which is my favorite! It totally depends on my mood. Cookie dough is one of the most delicious things ever, but sometimes you need that fresh-from-the-oven gooey-ness of a cookie. If I could have a little melted chocolate in my cookie dough, I’d be in heaven!

  36. I’m definitely a baked cookie gal…but they have to be gooey, almost undercooked. 😀 These look fantastic!

  37. Both! How you can you not try the cookie dough when you’re making cookies?! And then how can you resist a hot cookie out of the oven. Both I say!!

  38. I love cookie dough 🙂 Yummy. I recently made cupcakes with a cookie dough filling and they were delicious!

  39. I like baked cookies the best! But I recently made chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes and they were pretty amazing!!

  40. COOKIE DOUGH!!!! When I was younger, my brother and I would always sneak the dough from the fridge. My mother started counting how many dough squares (store-bought) were left so she could catch us!

  41. I’m a cookie dough fan. I usually eat some much dough while baking cookies that by the time they’re done, I’ve had my cookie fix!

  42. Its only 9 am and this is making my mouth water….love warm baked cookies but this is even better!

  43. Oh, I really must have a copy of this new book! I LOVE both the dough and undercooked cookies. I’m passionate about baking cookies and bake a batch almost every day.

  44. I totally go for cookie dough….unless the cookie is about 30 seconds out of the oven and not quite baked all the way through. YUM!

  45. Gotta have BAKED cookies. The way the house smells. Warm from the oven with a cold glass of milk. PARADISE!!!!

  46. Cookie dough!! We eat so much of it before it bakes that I’m never sure how many cookies my recipes are supposed to make!

  47. Cooikie dough for sure! There is a place not too far from my house that sells raw cookie dought by the scoopful – and it is my favorite decadent treat for sure. perhaps this is why I need to lose 20 lbs? ah – who cares – delicious!

  48. I love them both so much… who can really choose! But if I have to choose, probably cookie dough because who doesn’t like instant gratification!

  49. Frighteningly I used to eat the refridgerated cookie dough right outta the tube…in quantity. This looks like a healthy and safe alternative. Will make today – perfect for an after school snack with some sliced apples or strawberries.

  50. Which do I like better? Don’t make me choose! But under pressure, I think I’d pick cookies!

  51. well, stolen waters are always sweeter…I always feel guilty when I snitch raw batter…but in moderate amounts the cookie dough would have to be my pick

  52. I like baked cookies better. Especially when the center is gooey and the edges are crispy!

  53. That’s a tough one ! Before they are baked, the dough is the best. After they are baked I love them too ! I am so confused !!

  54. I actually am a bigger fan of the finished cookies than of the dough! But I always taste the dough before baking because if the cookie dough is good then the cookies will be good!

  55. Uhh… yes? I think it depends on the cookie recipe. Slightly underbaked cookies provide the best of both worlds!

  56. I’m with Josh, I’m all about the cookie dough! Though I wouldn’t turn down one of your homemade cookies either!

  57. Am I allowed to say both? I love both cookie dough and fresh baked still warm from the oven chocolate chip cookies.

  58. That is such a hard decision but I will have to go with cookie dough. Of course the cookies are delicious also but I would rather eat the dough, it is just that you usually aren’t suppose to eat the dough. This is a great recipe for both worlds.

  59. We are a split family. I love baked cookies and my husband loves the cookie dough. It always seems when I bake cookies that he eats more of the dough than I get cookies. 🙂

  60. ahh that’s a tough one! can i say i like them both equally?? i dont disriminate! haha chocolate chip cookies are my favorite cookie ever though! 🙂

  61. Cookie dough. Confession time…Sometimes I say I am going to make cookies but it is just a ploy for the dough.

  62. It’s so hard because I love them both in different ways buuut….I mean…c’mon. Cookie dough!!!

  63. Half the fun of making cookies is eating the dough. But for me it definitely depends on what type of cookie I’m making. I cannot resist sticking my fingers in chocolate chip, peanut butter, or monster cookie dough. 🙂

  64. I can’t decide! I like to sneak some dough while I am scooping it out onto the cookie sheet…but I love a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie. I even love the ones with only one or two chips in them because the cookie part is so yummy. I used dark brown sugar instead of light for my last batch and OMG were they good!
    Anyway, my son loves everything cookie dough – ice cream, ice cream blizzards, cookies, cakes etc. He has requested a chocolate fudge cake/cookie dough, cheesecake combo for his birthday cake this year!!

    thanks for the recipe and LOVE the blog! 🙂

  65. It’s hard to choose, but probably warm cookies right out of the oven! Thanks for this chance to win!!

  66. I think I prefer my cookie dough uncooked… sandwiched between two baked cookies. Now that’s just a great idea.

  67. As a teen ager, I was crazy over uncooked choc chip cookie dough. I even babysat for a couple who always had a bowl of this in their frig for the husband to snack on…I cannot say “no” to soft, doughy cookies to this day.

  68. I like eating raw cookie dough as long as it does not have eggs. This recipe really does have the bedt of two worlds!! Must try!

  69. I go back and forth on that one! While I am eating each one, I am liking that one best! Same with cheesecake and cheesecake batter!

  70. I’m going to hedge and say that enjoying both is part of the same glorious process. If pressed, I guess I’ll go with baked cookies, because I like the golden brown edge & molten chocolate.

  71. Cookie dough for me! Although sandwiching it between to fresh cookies sounds like absolute perfection!

  72. Depends on the type of cookies! Usually I liked the baked version better 🙂

  73. Unfortunately, I like both. Can’t seem to keep my fingers/spoons out of the cookie dough, though. It just isn’t cookie baking if you don’t sample some of the dough! My youngest son is going to LOVE these cookies…he’s a real big chocolate chip cookie lover, and he REALLY loves cookie dough!!

  74. I love cookies more… I don’t like tasting the baking soda or powder in cookie dough. 🙂

  75. I enjoy eating dough while some of the cookies bake — baked cookies are probably better for me though because I can eat entirely way too much dough if I’m not careful 🙂

  76. I can’t help but eat cookie dough along the whole process of cookie making, but I still love the actual baked cookie the very very best!

  77. Definitely cookie dough! It’s a wonder any cookies actually get baked in my house before all the dough is gone. 🙂

  78. tough choice! i think i have to go with cookie dough, though! i can pass up cookies sometimes but a big bowl of dough is irresistible!

  79. I definitely love cookie dough more… I think that’s the main reason I make cookies lol. But a nice warm chewy cookie follows close behind… I will be making this recipe soon!!!!:)))

  80. These look amazing!! I LOVE cookie dough! I even like my cookies on the undercooked side so they are still rather dough-y! 🙂 This book looks like it was made for me!!

  81. Definitely cookie dough!! I used to buy the logs of Nestle’s cookie dough and just eat it raw..and it had eggs in it! Oh well, I think I turned out okay 🙂
    Can’t wait to try these cookies!

  82. Cookie dough!! But now that I have this recipe I have the best of both worlds together…can’t beat that 🙂

  83. Hi!
    I like baked cookies best but cookie dough rocks in a pinch! 🙂
    Thanks for the chance!
    ~Mippy 🙂

  84. Depends on the cookie…..I love chocolate chip cookie dough but usually not other types. I only really enjoy cookies when they are warm out of the oven. So, both? Haha.

  85. I have to say I am a big fan of cookie dough. I would say I like the dough better than ALMOST all cookies I would love to win this book!

  86. I have to say I like baked cookies better! I know, I know… blasphemy. 😉 But I just love how delicious they are right out of the oven! Mmmm.

  87. Warm cookies straight out of the oven while they are still gooey are the best…..with a glass of milk of course!

  88. I prefer baked cookies, but must always taste the dough before I bake them. Good cookies have good dough! 😉

  89. Hard Choice. I think I like cookies better, but I may need to do more “data collection” to decide for sure. :o)

  90. oh, my….what a choice….i think i will go with the cookie dough…is there anything better than delicious raisin oatmeal dough? hungry for it now!! hahah…

  91. It’s a toss up for me, I like both! That book would be awesome since I’m prego and can’t sample raw cookie dough right now.

  92. I really really love cookie dough in the summer, or anytime it’s just too warm out. But nothing beats cooked cookie down when it is chilly outside!!

  93. Definitely cookie dough! I usually eat so much of the dough that I don’t even want the cookies after I bake them! Well, maybe for a day or so, then I resume my cookie monster status.

  94. Personally, I like baked cookies better, but my 11 year old adores cookie dough and with this cookbook I know I could make him very happy. 🙂

  95. Definitely cookie dough!! I have eaten so much before the cookies are baked that my sweet tooth is over satisfied once the cookies are out of the oven!

  96. This is a tough question. I am going to have to say cookie dough, since I will often decide which cookie recipe to bake solely based on how good the dough will taste.

    Now I need a cookie…

  97. cookie dough for SURE! when i was little, my dad would buy us a tube of cookie dough from the store so we could go home and eat the entire thing in one sitting, just me and him!

  98. Cookie dough, no question! Baked cookies are good but they just don’t compare to a dollop of dough. 🙂

  99. Wow, these look amazing! I like cookie dough, but love cookies more…warm gooey goodness with a glass of milk. Yum! You can’t get that feeling from cold cookie dough.

  100. I am torn. I love eating cookie dough- my favorite dough is chocolate chip. But I don’t know if that beats out a warm cookie. I go crazy for a warm cookie!

  101. all i can say is i have eaten more cookie dough than i will ever admit to. what is it about cookie dough?

  102. I can’t choose! I have to hold myself back from eating too much of both:)) That’s why today’s recipe will be perfect for me!

  103. DEF BAKED. I am not a fan of cookie dough at all. MMMMMMMM ANY COOKIE BAKED. DROOL. I WANT RIGHT NOW!

  104. You can’t beat baked cookies that are warm from the oven. (That’s if they get into the oven since my husband eats most of the dough.)

  105. Oh geez…you just had to ask!!! I like, ummmm….the chocolate chip cookie dough better but only before the chips are added. 🙂

  106. Cookie dough for sure. Sometimes the cookies don’t even get baked because all the cookie dough gets eaten.

  107. I like the baked cookies right out of the oven best, but that doesn’t stop me from tasting the cookie dough too!

  108. I love the cookie dough, but it kills me to never bake the cookies. So I would guess the actual cookie is my fave:)

  109. Oh my gosh, what a hard question!! I absolutely LOVE both! But… I think I’ll have to lean a little more towards the cookie dough itself 🙂

  110. Warm, fresh cookies. I snag one off of every baking sheet that comes out of the oven when I bake. It’s not a healthy habit, but I don’t care! 🙂

  111. I would much rather eat the dough! Those tubs of dough that you’re supposed to bake into cookies – never make it to the oven at my house! I would love a copy of this cookbook!

  112. I’m not really a cookie fan (blasphemy, I know!). But I could eat cookie dough all day – and most of the night.

  113. I like baked cookies better but I do like stealing a few bites of the dough off the spoon before washing. 🙂 Book looks exciting!

  114. cookie dough – if it is chocolate chip or similar…if it is molasses (my other fav), definitely the cookie as I love the crunch after adding the sugar!

  115. Depends on the mood and the outside temperature. During the winter, it is hard to beat a fresh baked cookie with a mug of hot chocolate…with whipped cream!

  116. I love to eat the cookie dough the best! But warm cookies- slightly cooled, straight from the oven..are a close second! It’s all good! 🙂

  117. A few years back I probably would’ve said cookie dough, and not that I don’t love it now too, but I think overall nothing can beat a warm, straight-from-the-oven homemade cookie. That, you know, is soft enough to still taste something like the dough in the center anyway….

  118. I love cookie dough. Especially in baked cookies – I like the centers to be a little doughy! )

  119. I love cookie dough the best! But this sounds delicious : ) Cookie dough and the lovely meltiness of fresh cookies 🙂

  120. I LOVE nice chewy cookies! The dough’s great, but just not the same as a cookie with a big cup of hot coffee.

  121. Yumm yumm to cookie dough!!! It’s soft gooeyness is delightful. But the baked good is just as yummy right out the oven.

  122. I love them both but i think i would have to say i like cookie dough better than baked cookies 🙂

  123. I’m all about the cookie dough! I try bake more than I eat but that time between batches is TOUGH. 😉

  124. My family are chocolate chip cookie dough nuts!! This would be a perfect addition for our family tastebuds!

  125. I would much rather eat several spoonfuls of cookie dough than the baked cookies themselves! When I was little I would always make cookies with my friends during sleepovers and we would share bowls of dough before any baking happened!

  126. Mmm thanks for sharing this recipe!

    Cookie dough or baked? I don’t know! I love both…probably too much. If I had to pick I’d probably go with the baked – I can eat more that way 🙂

  127. I prefer them baked but dough is a close second place! Thanks for the giveaway chance! I adore your site!

  128. Personally I like cookies better but everyone else in my house seems to like the dough better…which is just as well as there are fewer cookies for me to eat!!

  129. that’s a hard decision… but I think I like baked cookies just a little more than cookie dough! especially if they’re warm!

  130. It would be almost impossible to choose between cookie dough and cookies, maybe a hot chocolate chip cookie thats still so soft in the middle its almost dough!

  131. I always end up eating more raw dough than actual cookies! It’s just too good!

  132. Cookie DOUGH is SO much better than baked cookies! Being able to shovel yumminess into your mouth with a spoon beats having to deal with crumbs all over the place… Plus, there’s no waiting for the cookies to bake and cool! Bonus!!

  133. Love cookie dough, but only in chocolate chip form. No other kind will do unless its a baked cookie!!!

  134. Dough all the way! It’s the only way to give your taste buds a preview of what’s to come! 😉

  135. I prefer cookies! I do like cookie dough but I usually prefer it in things like shakes or, in this case, in between cookies!

  136. Cookie dough, cookie dough, cookie dough… These look amazing. I’ll have to make them soon.

  137. I love both.. there’s nothing like warm baked cookies straight out of the oven.. I don’t like to cook them much so that they get kind of doughy… I adore sneaking for cookie dough.. hard to decide!!

  138. These definitely sound like the best of both worlds. I love cookie dough but I probably love a still-warm just-out-of-the-oven cookie just as much.

  139. Hmm… baked cookies are yummy but lets be serious here… when I am baking I definintely help myself to a heaping serving a raw cookie dough before they go in the oven. So, I would have to say cookie dough for sure 🙂

  140. I am definitely a cookie dough lover! I always reserve about a 1/4 of my cookie dough batter just for snacking on while I bake. 😉

  141. I would have to chose cookie dough!! No wait cookies AAAhhh to hard…..cookie dough yes I will stick with cookie dough

  142. Oh, that’s a tough question. But I’ll have to go with the dough. Now that I’m an “adult” and living in my own place, I ALWAYS have cookie dough in the fridge. And usually a spoon in my hand 🙂

  143. It’s so hard to choose which I like better, but cookie dough seems much more sinful. My all time favorite treat is two cookies, fresh out of the oven, with raw cookie dough in the middle. I can’t wait to try these!

  144. Cookie dough! My kids and I will sometimes make up a little bowl of it for dessert at night. I know, I know…I’m teaching them a bad habit…but…the cookie dough calls to me!!!!!!! lol

  145. Cookie Dough Cookie Dough Cookie Dough. Without a doubt! Can not wait to check out this book!

  146. OMG Cookie dough for sure! Wow, now I really want some Cookie dough ice cream!!! I also love that Cookie dough dip recipe you posted a few months ago it was perfect for pretzels. I love your blog
    swopemelmel @ aol dot com

  147. I love cookie dough, but I like baked cookies better since they don’t give me a stomach ache. If I could learn to make eggless dough, it’d be the best of both worlds!

  148. Definitely love the baked cookie the best. I’m a ‘dunk it in milk’ kind of cookie lover! The crunchier the better most of the time.

  149. Gosh, that’s a toughie…but I think I have to go with the baked cookies…fresh from the oven of course! 🙂

  150. I like cookie dough better! Though I have tried some eggless alternatives, I usually risk making regular cookie dough and then just dig in with a spoon. Come to think of it, I think I need to make some more today!

  151. I like my cookies baked–but my husband makes cookies just so he can eat the dough, so this book would be perfect for our house.

  152. Love, love, loooove cookie dough to cookies! Especially chocolate chip! I’ve also been known to whip up a box of brownies just so I could eat the batter! Deeelish!

  153. Mmmm, tough decision. I’m going with fresh baked cookies. I can’t wait to try this recipe!!

  154. Cookie dough all the way! I swear when I bake cookies, half of the dough ends up in my mouth instead of in the oven!

  155. COOKIE DOUGH RAW!!! I’ve always been told you’ll get sick by eating the cookie dough raw but so far I’ve been fine and I just love it!

  156. I think I may be one of the few who would prefer a baked cookie, however straight from the oven so it’s really melty (is that a word?) in the middle!!

    I’ve had my eye on this book, I hope I win!!

  157. If I really had to choose, I’d say my favorite would be baked cookies, hot out of the oven. With a ice cold glass of milk. 🙂

  158. I’m an underdone cookie fanatic – I mean, I eat it out of the bowl while making, but somewhere between completely raw and very clearly cooked is where I am happiest!

  159. I think I actually like cookie dough better! I always end up tasting enough of it that I don’t even want to eat a cookie after they’re done baking! 🙂

  160. You’ve hit me where it hurts! I love the cookie dough, but nothing is better than a warm chocolate chip cookie with a glass of cold milk.

  161. i would eat both! but i think i do like the baked cookie better!

    but a lovely post! 🙂 your cookies look gorgeous!

  162. I always, ALWAYS have a few bites of cookie dough …but at the end of the day, I like cooked cookies better!

  163. I love cookies and cookie dough!!! I have to practice serious self control when baking cookies to make sure cookies are actually made 🙂

  164. I like cookie dough better!!

    And these cookies look insanely good. I think I need to bake them for the office as soon as possible!

  165. I love cookies dough. Who can’t resist taking a few bites before baking. After all, by the time they’re done the kids eat them before you!

  166. Oh my, I haven’t thought to each the cookie dough. Since I was little it was always “No!” Im all for trying some cookie dough that we can eat!! Yeah, Im so excited with even just the thought of it; that trying the cookie dough will take me over the top good. Im looking forward to it! Thank you. Kimmer

  167. I like the cookie dough the best. I never thought about making it without eggs so you could eat it.

  168. Cookie dough, sometimes I make a batch and never bake a single cookie. I just keep the bowl in the fridge and eat the dough for days!

  169. Definitely cookie dough WAY more than cookies. I can’t help it. But cookies are good too 🙂

  170. These look amazing! I have to say as much as I like to get a little bite of cookie dough in, nothing beats a soft and warm baked cookie.

  171. LOVE me some raw cookie dough! Your photos are making me drool & now I’m totally craving cookie dough!!! 🙂

  172. I am pregnant with my 4th and this time around, cookie dough is the ONE thing I cannot get enough of. I can always be found with a bowl of cookie dough in the fridge to counter the cravings. But the cookie? Eh…not so much.

  173. I love baked cookies, but ones that aren’t fully cooked and still soft in the middle. It’s the best of both worlds!

  174. I love Cookie Dough! I could eat it all day long, and I especially crave it after a good workout 🙂

  175. The dough, that is why I under cook my cookies. I guess that is the best of both! A bit cookie and a bit doughy!

  176. I prefer cookie dough. When making cookies I will usually keep a small bowlful of dough to eat by the spoonful while my husband eats the cookies! 🙂

  177. Cookie dough is truly addictive. As much as I loved baked cookes, the dough does me in every time. I can’t wait for this book.

  178. I generally eat about ten cookies worth of dough while my husband hovers anxiously in the background dropping hints about there being enough left to actually make any cookies. I rarely eat them after they’re baked. They’re all for my husb.

  179. Wow…cookie dough stuffed cookies has got to be the coolest thing I’ve ever heard of…why in the world have I not tried this yet?? I gotta say, cookies FRESH out of the oven (burn-your-tongue hot) are my favorite, though this is a tough decision because cookie dough rules, too. 🙂

  180. I like baked cookies better (my husband actually makes them) but he also likes to eat cookie dough when he does so he would love these sandwiches!

  181. Cookie dough! Hot gooey cookies are a close second though, so it’s still worthwhile to cook a few 🙂

  182. The cookie dough for sure! Sometimes even before you add the dry ingrediants…Butter, sugar, vanilla = YUM!

  183. This is such a hard question!! Cookie dough, probably! My roommates back from my college days will verify how much I ate, just sitting on the couch, with a spoon. YES, embarrassing.

  184. I would choose either, depending on my mood! There’s a time and place for both as someone else stated 🙂

  185. I love cookie dough so much more than baked cookies! Unless the cookies are hot and barely baked and still taste like cookie dough.

  186. COOKIE DOUGH WINS! My kids wonder who ate all the cookies????? All of the uncooked dough doesn’t make it to the sheet. ooooohhhhhh, yum.

  187. Cookie dough! I make cookies because I am craving the dough – and only cook them so I don’t eat all of the dough! I know – it’s bad!

  188. These look fabulous!! I love soft baked cookies better than cookie dough, especially warm right out of the oven 🙂

  189. I love them in the middle, somewhere in between raw and cooked. My husband calls them medium rare! These look perfect for me!

  190. I prefer baked cookies, all warm and chewy straight from the cooling racks~

    I never have eaten raw cookie dough because I’m afraid of salmonella D:

  191. I am a cookie dough girl all the way. The only way I can avoid eating absolutely all the cookie dough is by baking it into cookies…then I only eat 2/3 of the cookies. 🙂

  192. Cookie dough, no contest.

    I love cookies, I really do, but the cookie dough is always at least 20% tastier.

  193. Cookie dough for me. Sometimes I eat so much of it that I don’t even want the cookies when they are all done (well, maybe just a little taste).

  194. It’s a tie – I really can’t ever decide which one I like the best. While I’m making the cookies, it’s the dough. When they’re done baking, it’s the cookies!

  195. I love, love, love, love, LOVE raw cookie dough! When Lindsay announced on her blog that she had written this cookbook, I was over the moon excited (and still am!). I can hardly believe the release date is finally (almost) here!! Would love to win an extra copy (I obviously have one pre-ordered too though :)!

  196. That is such a tough question!! I guess I like baked cookies the most.. but cookie dough is a very close second! 🙂

  197. Cookie dough all the way! Chocolate chip is my husband’s favorite. I made cookie bars last year for his birthday, and will make these this weekend for his birthday! They look amazing!

  198. It’s a tough choice! I love cookie dough, but eventually grow tired of it and want the baked cookies (if I’ve left enough dough for baking). My preference also changes with the type of cookie. I love sugar cookie dough but can (usually) leave (most of) the cookies alone. Any chocolate or chocolate chip dough is a huge temptation, but then so are the cookies. Must I really choose just one?

  199. Mmmmm….both are delightful, but there’s nothing like a good soft cookie…almost like dough!!

  200. Looks delicious! I love love love baked cookies 🙂 but I also love love love cookie dough.

  201. It depends on the type of cookie for me. With chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies, I’d say the dough would win (just slightly) over the baked cookies. With other varieties, like sugar cookies, gingersnaps, and others, I prefer the baked version. I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  202. I love the cookie dough, I just can’t help myself. Yummy 🙂 these cookies look fantastic, I can’t wait to try them.

  203. I love baked chocolate chip cookies, cooled a tiny bit, & eat like that or make a chocolate chip vanilla ice cream sandwich. Yum!

  204. Baked cookies over the raw dough – baked you can save a few for later, but the dough you tend to eat the whole thing 🙂

  205. We love cookie dough at our house. We usually make it and freeze it and then eat it as a treat or half-bake it with ice cream. Yum!

  206. I am obsessed with cookie dough! I am so excited about this book! Thanks for the chance to win!

  207. Baked cookies! Knowing there is raw eggs in the batter just freaks me out, even though I am perfectly healthy enough to eat it. Her cookbook looks great!!

  208. I have to say that I prefer the dough over the baked cookie. Can’t help myself. These sandwiches are definitely the best of both worlds!

  209. Great looking cookie! I definitely love the dough (or the batter) way more than the final baked goodie!

  210. I believe I like mine baked better… but eating bits of dough while making them is part of the fun!

  211. Oh my gosh. What a tough question…but nothing beats fresh baked cookies right out of the oven. so soft and gooey. 😛

  212. It should be illegal to make someone choose which they like better! 😉 But if I had to choose I think I would have to say cookie dough, especially if it’s chocolate chip cookie dough!!!

  213. I’ve been drooling at this cook book for SO long! Always love it. So addicting. The cookie dough is always the best, but that might be the adrennaline rush from doing something “bad”.. haha(:

  214. I. Love. Cookie. Dough.
    And I don’t always eat the egg-free version. Oh my. Just the right amount of sweet …. and salty …. and chocolate. It’s so good!

  215. I am a baked cookie person. Nice to know that this cookbook’s cookie dough is eggless; now I can let my grandkids eat this raw cookie dough 🙂

  216. These cookies sandwiches look fabulous and I am dying to get my hands on this book! I eat baked cookies much more than dough! My husband usually can’t keep his hands out of the dough though!

  217. this is how i eat my cookies when i make them! i bake a batch and while the next batch is baking i dig into the warm cookies and put the dough in the middle! YUMMY!!!

  218. Oh man, that’s a tough one – I love both! However, there was a time when I ate so much cookie dough, I literally turned green – GREEN! So, I’ve scaled back on eating straight cookie dough these days, but I do love it in my Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough ice cream 🙂

  219. I like slightly under-baked cookies, so that I get the best of both worlds, dough-y center and crispy edges!

  220. Cookie dough is the best! It makes me feel rebellious when I eat it… And it’s oh so yummy 🙂

  221. My only curiosity about this cookie was “Would they put raw egg in the dough?” Of course they didn’t. But it needs walnuts to provide contrast to all of the sugar.

  222. I LOVE cookie dough. I bake cookies every Sunday to bring to work for the week and I always sample the cookie dough prior to baking. It’s my way of checking to make sure they’ll turn out okay. I don’t bother with the finished product – I let my husband sample those. 🙂

  223. Definitely raw cookie dough. Nothing beats licking the bowl AND the spoon clean… and sneaking some scoops in between… 🙂

  224. Secretly I just love choc chip cookie dough. I use my own hens eggs, that way I don’t worry so much about the raw egg stuff.

  225. This is a very tough question! But I think I like cookies baked better, right out of the oven!

  226. Hands down – cookie dough! There’s something about the raw dough when you’re baking and who can’t resist picking out all of the cookie dough bits in ice cream:)

  227. I LOVE both but the dough is hands down my favorite AND my new obsession. If i could justify keeping some in a container int he fridge to snack on daily I would. LOL 🙂

  228. I’m a cookie dough fiend myself and I’m reviewing this cookbook either this Friday or next! LOVE IT. I haven’t made these cookie sandwiches yet but you can bet I’m going to!

  229. Why should one choose? This is the beauty of making cookies from scratch. You get to have your cookie and eat it too. Ever since I learned how to bake I have loved getting to snack on the the dough as I bake off my cookies and then getting my fresh, warm gooey cookies after baking. These of course require a glass of milk, as anyone who has read If You Give a Mouse A cookie is aware.

  230. I love what you picked to make! I don’t need to be entered in the giveaway, I just had to comment on your cookies! I haven’t picked what to make out of this book yet, there are just too many amazing choices! But this was right up there towards the top – cookies and cookie dough together? It is like the best of both worlds.

  231. This is a toughie, but I have to go with the baked chocolate chip cookies. I need to have them straight outta the oven, warm and melty!

  232. YUM!!! I have definitely pinned this! It would be super-exciting to win the cookie dough lover’s cookbook! Fingers crossed!

  233. Cookie dough! And I have learned that not all cookie dough is created equal. Just because I like the cookie doesn’t guarantee I’ll like the dough, and vice versa. Thanks for the giveaway. Either way I’m getting’ that book. It looks awesome!


  234. Of course the cookie dough is better! But I’m still a sucker for a good cookie with a crispy outside and chewy inside.

  235. Tough decision – made a whole lot easier – had a batch of choc chip cookies that were a but over baked for my taste – crumbled them up (not too fine) and added them to the next batch of dough – cookies were great but the dough was even better.

  236. I really love both! I guess if I HAD to choose, I’d pick baked cookies, fresh out of the oven, with a blob of vanilla ice-cream on top. Love the hot/cold combination.

  237. I love cookie dough, but my husband freaks out about salmonella any time he sees me eating it.

  238. OMG this is such a hard questions to answer. Dough or Cookie. Cookie or Dough. Oh gosh…I’m going to say…Cookie! Sugar cookies are way better than just the dough – chocolate can go either way.

  239. I loooooove raw cookie dough!! I’m allergic to eggs so I use an egg substitute (Ener-G) so I don’t even feel guilty sampling my raw dough ;).

  240. I prefer cookies, but there’s something special about stealing a spoonful of the dough;)

  241. Some times its all about the dough and other times its all about the cookie. So when you make them at home you can have the best of both worlds and have some of both. YUMMY

  242. Awesome. Thanks for sharing. I found this on So happy I did. I’m a baker and even though I’m a Junior in High School, I’m already making a business out of it 🙂 I don’t know if that URL to my facebook will let you see the pictures… But those are my amateur cakes 🙂 It’s fun to bake and create new recipes and this one, if I do say so myself… Is awesome!!!

  243. I love the dough but I am afraid to get sick with salmonella! So I would have to say I prefer baked

  244. Oh, definitely the dough. Baking in my retreat, whereas what I bake ends up being treat for others. During the cookie-making process, many “quality control” checks mush be done…. So usually, by the time the cookies are actually done baking, I’ve had my fix already. Besides, the calories aren’t added until the cookies are in the oven — right?????

  245. OMG!! I am the baker in my house too!
    I love making cookies especially, but my family eats more cookie dough than baked cookies! These look awesome! I can’t wait to make them this week!
    Thanks Maria!

  246. Cookie dough all the way!!

    Although a super yummy just-out-of-the-oven cookie is to die for as well…

  247. If it is chocolate chip cookies I definitely prefer cookie dough. But they are still delicious as cookies.

  248. I LOVE cookie dough! I usually sample so much cookie dough when I’m baking that I can’t even stomach a baked cookie. I’d love this cookbook to try the eggless recipe’s. What a genius book!

  249. Cookie dough for sure!! That is always the food I miss the most when I am pregnant! I would love some eggless cookie dough recipes (and my pregnant sis would too).

  250. The dough, the dough, the dough! I don’t care if there ARE raw eggs in it. Surely as much as we have all eaten since we were kids, we would surely be dead by now if it were THAT harmful, don’t ya think? 🙂

  251. I love eating cookie dough! So much better than baked cookies, but I eat more baked cookies than raw dough because of the eggs, so I am so happy to see some eggless recipes!

  252. Cookie dough, hands down. I even prefer my cookies to more on the “dough” end of the spectrum than “cookie”!

  253. Wow this cookbook looks dangerous! Definitely dough- especially with some oats in there.

  254. Cookie dough! I can walk right by cookies all the time but I’ll never let a smidge of dough sneak by.
