So I am starting my Cookie Dough Filling experiments today and the first "recipe" (I use that term loosely..lol) I try will be this:
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 4oz pkg vanilla pudding
1 cup mini choco chips
2 cups butter cream
Cream together butter and sugar, add salt and pudding mix, mix with butter cream and fold in chips.
Here's my thinking behind the ingredients-
I want the butter and brown sugar mix for the taste and texture, choco chip cookie dough to me is gritty and sweet and it's the brown sugar that sets it apart, so I have to have that.
I added the salt because I like my cookie dough salty, and the pudding to really thicken it up, its not cookie dough unless its stiff.
So does this sound like a good plan?
Im going to give it a go but any suggestions are welcome.
I really want it to be just like cookie dough, not frosting that taste a little like cookie dough.
I was thinking about making the cookie recipe but omitting the eggs, but I need a binder, evap milk or cream maybe?
Almost as important as taste is the texture, I really have to get that gritty texture right.
I've had success just using a choc chip cookie dough and omitting the egg. Good luck with your experiment!
what did you use for the extra moisture when you left out the egg?
I made a cookie dough 'truffle' last summer. I used a basic cookie recipe and left out the egg. It comes out stiffer with out the egg.
I saw some recipes online that had maybe condensed milk but that sounded too sweet to me.
I didn't use anything extra. If you're worried about it just use less flour. It's really easi to wing since you're basically wanting flavor/texture and not baking it
what about cream cheese
also used cookie recipe without the egg works great!!
I use my regular cookie dough recipe with the following adjustments:
- Eliminate the eggs.
- Eliminate the baking soda.
- Replace 1/3 of the flour with powdered sugar
- increase the butter by 1/4 with hi-ratio shortening.
- either use mini chips or the flatter, disc-like ones so it's not so difficult to spread. (if you use mini chips, remember they are more compact by volume, so use fewer.)
I have a whole series of cookie dough frostings I offer, including sugar cookie and molasses~spice cookie. They're my most requested.
there is one on allrecipes.com that has a cookie dough recipe for ice cream or topping. It doesn't contain egg and is good.
