Interestingly, the idea for this cookbook came after Lindsey had written a post and recipe for Cookie Dough Truffles - which is still her most popular post! She was able to see the need for more recipes using raw cookie dough... we all love it, and can't resist it when baking. And, if you can honestly say you've never licked the spoon or the beaters... well, you just haven't walked on the wild side, now have you? ;)
I am always thrilled to see a food blogger dive into the cookbook world and when they go the extra mile to ensure that each recipe has a photo to go with it, I know they "get it". Just like Jaden Hair did with her book, The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook: 101 Asian Recipes Simple Enough for Tonight's Dinner, each recipe has a beautiful photo to go with it. When I am looking for a recipe to make, I can be convinced by a photo that I need to make something... when it comes to cooking or baking, presentation is over half the battle for me to select a recipe. A huge thumb's up goes out to both of these fabulous bloggers and cookbook authors.
I do have a love of layered treats, and this one more than met my expectations. The recipe was written clearly and broken down into the steps needed for it to be successful. The ingredients were also separated out for each layer - huge help for someone who likes to have things spelled out due to the many distractions that occur whenever I am in the kitchen.
Making a treat like this does involve a bit of waiting time due to cooling the brownies and then a little fridge time after putting the cookie dough layer over the brownies... but, that is to be expected with any layered treat... it takes time to make something so decadent. While the recipe did say to cut into 2 inch squares, I cut mine a bit smaller... this is a rich dessert that is worth the calories, but I do like a bite-size treat.
So, what else do I have marked to make from this cookbook? Here are just a few recipes I've marked:
- Cookie Dough Whoopie Pies
- Cookie Dough Billionaire Bars
- Cookie Dough-Stuffed Dark Chocolate Cupcakes
- Chocolate Cookie Dough Ice Cream
- Old Fashioned Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches
Now, I'm not going to post the recipe to the brownies I made here because I'd really love to encourage you to purchase a copy of the cookbook... it's less than $15 on Amazon, which is a great price for a cookbook that has a gorgeous photo of each recipe and is spiral bound so that you an easily leave it open while baking. You just know that the person who wrote this book knew what other bakers would want in a cookbook!
