Last night I posted this image on Instagram and was surprised at how many people were interested in my cookie dough recipe! The sock pictured is the second sock of a pair I've been working on for months. I'd like to wrap it up so I can cast on for a new sock soon.
The cookie dough. Every evening I sit down with my knitting and lately I have been getting overwhelming cravings for baked goods! A friend dropped off some Christmas baking last week and it didn't last 24 hours. My sweet tooth is in full force. I've come up with a very quick and easy way of satisfying my cravings, a single serving of vegan cookie dough. I'm calling it vegan only because I used coconut oil instead of butter (I've done it both ways and I prefer the coconut for the raw dough) and because I didn't use an egg like most cookie dough recipes would use since I was aiming to make such a small amount and a full egg wouldn't work. I have zero self control and happen to love cookie dough, and have eaten so much raw egg in cookie dough throughout my life that I'm positive it wouldn't hurt me. Anyways, all that to say that you can totally just make a batch of regular cookie dough and you will get absolutely no judgement from me, but if you want a super quick and easy recipe to satisfy a sweet tooth immediately, this is what I do:
In a ramekin I MIX: 1.5 TBSP melted coconut oil + 1.5 tsp brown sugar and 1.5 tsp granulated sugar + splash vanilla.
ADD: a pinch of salt and a few TBSP's of flour, stirring after each addition until you get the consistency you like.
SPRINKLE: a bunch of chocolate chips on top.
NUKE: pop in the microwave for 10-15 seconds, just long enough to warm it up and melt the chocolate chips a bit.
