It wasn’t supposed to be like this
It was supposed to be like THIS from the Recipe Critic!
However, no matter how I tried I could not get this to set up like the beautifully presented bars that you see above. I’m not sure if it had something to do with the conversion using gluten free flour or if I just did something completely wrong but, either way, I made 2 & ½ batches for various recipients so was left with an absolute mass of eggless cookie dough in the house.
I know I keep yapping on about it but for TWO NIGHTS in a row I made myself completely ill on this crack like substance whether it set up or not! I have an enormous food “wish list” I want to make (ok, 5,000+ recipes on Pinterest alone!) and Cookie Dough Dip was definitely on it. I had no idea that I would be making it so soon though!
The good thing is that I made three different items to get this out of my house and temptation removed.
• Brownie Muffin Tops with Cookie Dough Icing (the ONLY time it’s good to have a muffin top )
The dip made a double appearance at a team meeting last night and then this morning at a morning tea Birthday celebration along with the Reese’s Cake I made on request.
So when life hands you lemons (failed cookie dough bars), don’t waste
what feels like $147 worth of ingredients a lot of time, effort and ingredients, make lemonade…….or cookie dough icing and dip!
If you are game, why not try the recipe and let me know if you can get it to work as a gluten free option and whether I’m just completely insane (maybe don’t answer that one!). The link to the Recipe Critic’s Cookie Dough Bars is HERE.
