Book Description

Food blogger Lindsay Landis has invented the perfect cookie dough. It tastes great. It’s egg free (and thus safe to eat raw). You can whip it up in minutes. And, best of all, you can use it to make dozens of delicious cookie dough creations, from cakes, custards, and pies to candies, brownies, and even granola bars. Included are recipes for indulgent breakfasts (cookie dough doughnuts!), frozen treats (cookie dough popsicles!), outrageous snacks (cookie dough wontons! cookie dough fudge! cookie dough pizza!), and more.

The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook features clear instructions and dozens of decadent full-color photographs. If you’ve ever been caught with a finger in the mixing bowl, then this is the book for you!

Editorial Reviews Review

Featured Recipe from Lindsay Landis: Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pops

Cookie Dough Ice Pops

Funny thing about these popsicles: there's not actually any cookie dough in them. Yet each lick, each bite, has just enough brown sugar and vanilla to make you think that you're eating cookie dough, or at least its essence. Is invisible cookie dough better than the real thing? I'll let you be the judge.

Yield: 4 pops

Active time: 5 minutes

Total time: 3 hours

  • 1-1/4 cups milk (skim, 2 percent, or whole, your choice)
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons mini semisweet chocolate chips

In a microwave-safe container or glass measuring cup, microwave milk 30 seconds or until warm to the touch. Add brown sugar and salt and stir until dissolved. Add vanilla.

Place 1/2 tablespoon chocolate chips in the bottom of each of four 1/3-cup ice-pop molds or small paper cups. Top each with milk mixture. Insert sticks and place molds in freezer. Freeze until solid, at least 3 hours.

To release pops, run molds under warm water 20 to 30 seconds; they should slide right out. (If using paper cups, simply peel cups away and discard.)

Wonky Sticks?

If your ice-pop mold does not include built-in sticks or a lid to hold them in place, you may find yourself with sticks pointing every which way but up. To prevent this, simply stretch a layer of plastic wrap over the top of the mold and secure it with a rubber band. Cut a small slit in the plastic, centered over each pop, and insert a stick through each opening. Alternatively, you can adjust sticks as necessary after about 45 minutes of freezing, when the pops aren't yet frozen solid.

Featured Recipe from Lindsay Landis: Cookie Dough Crispy Treats

Cookie Dough Crispy Treats

Too many adults don't realize that their five-year-old selves were on to something: crispy treats truly are magical. Adults and kids alike can appreciate this whimsical variation on the classic, with its cookie dough swirls and chocolate chip freckles. It's a treat no matter what your age.

Yield: 24 treats

Total time: 20 minutes

For Cookie Dough
  • 1⁄3 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
For Crispy Treats
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 12 ounces marshmallows (about 44 regular or 7 cups mini marshmallows)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 7 cups crisp rice cereal

Grease a 13-by-9-inch baking pan with butter or cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugars with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add vanilla and milk. Mix in flour and salt and beat on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.

Melt butter and marshmallows together in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until completely melted. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Fold in cereal, gently stirring until completely coated.

Press half of the cereal mixture into prepared pan. Spread with cookie dough and then top with remaining cereal, carefully pressing into an even layer. (You may find it easier to use your hands for this step; if so, generously butter them beforehand so the cereal mixture doesn't stick to your fingers). Cut into squares. Treats can be stored, loosely covered in the refrigerator, up to 3 days but are best enjoyed within a day of making them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recipe: SOOO Good, Book: SOOO Good June 5, 2012
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I just received this cookbook today. I wasn't expecting it to be that great because I couldn't imagine that many recipes having cookie dough in them. But when I took the book out of the box I was pleasantly surprised to see how thick it is, full of cookie dough recipes and desserts with the dough in them. At that point I was very excited to try out the basic chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, and it was SOOO good! I've tried other egg-less cookie dough recipes before, but this one is definitely the best. It was even better several hours later, after being refrigerated. The book has other cookie dough recipes as well, such as peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, chocolate chocolate chip, and sugar. Then the rest of the book has pages and pages of desserts with cookie dough in them. To name a few... Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars, Cookie Dough Truffles, Cookie Dough Doughnuts, Cookie Dough Brownies, Cookie Dough Cake, Cookie Dough S'mores, Cookie Dough Ice Cream, Cookie Dough Marshmallows. I am a cookie dough freak - I'll eat anything with cookie dough and like the author, I can't get enough! I will be trying many of these recipes (probably all of them)!

The best thing about this cookbook is that it has a photo of EVERY recipe. I hate when I can't see a photo of what I'm making. This is also a spiral-bound book, which makes it easy to stay on the page you're reading.
I don't normally write a review of a product so soon after receiving it, before I've had the time to really use it. But in this case I thought I should let everyone know how insanely good the cookie dough is and it's worth it just for that! :) If you love all things cookie dough, then you must buy this book! I'll update this review later, after I've tried the dessert recipes.

This is an absolutely beautiful and well constructed book! It looks like a normally bound book on the outside, flip it open and it reveals it has a convenient spiral binding for the recipe pages. The pages are sturdy and look like they will survive the occasional spill and splatter. The photos (at least one for each recipe) are lovely and clearly show what the cookie, truffle, cake, etc. can look like. The tips and techniques are good and the down-to-earth way the book is written makes it easy to follow. I bought it as a gift for a friend -- now I want a copy for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review July 31, 2012
This is me. I probably eat about 2 cookies worth of dough before it's all said and done. And then I don't want the cookies. lol So when Quirk sent me this cookbook, I was over the moon!

So you know I got busy...well once I remembered to pick up the stuff. I didn't want just chocolate chips, I wanted something that was just for me. I bought toffee bits and mini chocolate chips (these are what Lindsay recommends for the chocolate chip cookie dough). At the beginning of the book she has the recipe for the chocolate chip cookie dough and after that she has all the cool things you can do with it.

I thought it was going to be a huge batch, but really it probably would have made about a dozen of these little balls. I used my trusty ice cream scoop that I use when I bake cookies. The boys enjoyed it as much as I did, although we all thought it was too sweet. So next time I will use less sugar.

I also want to try the edible peanut butter cookie dough. And yes, with the peanut butter dough she has a recipe for Peanut Butter cups. YUM! Now the minute I find chocolate worth melting, I will be trying these! And there are candies that I would describe as a kind of truffle...just balling up the dough and pouring chocolate over it.

On the cover there are conversion charts. She offers suggestions on equipment and ingredients. Her introduction is well written, so you get to know the author before you jump into her recipes. And her recipes are pleasing to the eye and easy to follow. On the page with the chocolate chip cookie dough she has some variations including how to go vegan and gluten-free. Oh wow - Oatmeal Raisin...wonder if CW would eat it.

Do I recommend this cookbook? Yes, it's fun for grownups like me who enjoy cookie dough. It would also easily be something you can do with your kids, the recipes are simple and relatively little cooking is involved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compliments will be had! June 28, 2013
By B.C.
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
Every time I make a recipe from this book, people go wild! I've made the cookie dough brownies and the chocolate chip cookie sandwiches thus far. There are quite a few (easy) steps to follow to make these recipes, in general, so if you're looking for quick recipes, this is not a cookbook for you. However, everything tastes excellent, and I always get compliments. In fact, a 9-year-old boy requested it for his birthday present after I loaned it to his mother!
Not everything is cookie dough; some recipes are "inspired by the flavors of cookie dough," such as puddings, custards, and popsicles. I look forward to making the popsicles this summer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! June 15, 2012
By ksbond
This cookbook is just adorable. The photography is beautiful and the recipes are clever and SO delicious. Just be warned, cookie dough lovers: the delicious, safe-to-eat-raw spoils might not make it past the mixing bowl. Luckily, that's completely allowed.

A must for every modern (un)baker's collection! Would make a great gift for a bride this summer.
