Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies

Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies

By now I think most of you know about this new cookbook out called The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook.  It was available last week for purchase, so hopefully you already went out and got it.

This book is written and photographed by Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil.  I am not kidding you when I say I want to make Every.Single.Recipe.  I couldn’t make up my mind, everything is seriously amazing!  So when we went to Wisconsin last week I let my father-in-law pick a recipe.  If possible, he might like cookie dough more than anyone I have ever met.  Finally, after a lot of deliberation and discussion he chose Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies.  They are exactly what they sound like.  Two chocolate chip cookies with cookie dough in the middle!

I must admit, I had high expectation for these cookies.  I mean think about it.  Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Cookie Dough.  How could these not be incredible?  Well, they lived up to my expectations!  The cookie is soft and chewy, and the cookie dough is…well, cookie dough!  My dad who does not like raw cookie dough (I know, there is something wrong with him) ate these.  Trust me, that says a lot.

All of the recipes in here have a beautiful, droolworthy picture to go along with it.  There is everything from waffles to granola bars, to cupcakes in this book.  Next up, we are trying the S’mores.  That was my 7 year old requested.
