Eggless Cookie Dough (3 ways)

Edible Cookie Dough

My dad had shoulder replacement surgery on late last month.  The day he had surgery, was the day that we got A LOT of snow.  So much snow that, my parents had to go to the hospital early to beat the snow.  So much snow that, my sister and I could not get to the hospital.  So much snow, that my mom had to stay at the hospital with my dad, because the road were bad.  So much snow that my uncle had to go to the hospital two days after the surgery, to drive my mom home.  Thank you Uncle Bob!

The surgery was a success...but the recovery has been hard on him.  My daddy is a tough man.  He has survived a car crash that should have killed him, knee replacement, a terrifying intestinal problem last year that scared us all, and raising my sister and I, which I know caused him an ulcer or two.  He is way past the age of retirement, but still works almost full time.  He is an wonderful father, husband, Papa, and friend.  But this surgery...this has knocked him, and knocked him hard.  Seeing my dad in pain, and my mom hurting because he is hurting, well, it is not a good feeling.

I wanted to make his favorite treat, raw cookie dough.  Every time we make chocolate chip cookies, we HAVE to save him a bowl of raw dough to eat.  But...well...with the concern of him eating raw eggs, I decided to make him an egg less version.  I have never made one like this before...but OMG...I will be making it again!

It comes together very quickly, is rich and sweet and just yummy!  You can use any type of chip you want.  I made three different batches, using chocolate chips, mini M&Ms and chocolate toffee bits.  Confession time, the chocolate toffee bits one was so good.....I kept it for myself.  I gave the other two to my daddy, and he loves it.  I think using only brown sugar really help give it a rich and full flavor of regular egg cookie dough.  The amount of milk needed to make this is really a personal preference, if you like a thinner dough, use more milk, a thicker dough, use less milk.  I like my dough THICK so I just used 2 tablespoons of milk.  I also found that melting the butter, allowed the dough to come together quickly, and since it will not be baked, using melted butter does not matter, like it would with a baked cookie.

If you love eating cookie dough, right out of the bowl while making cookies...this one is for you.
