Everyone loves cookie dough and when it is hot, the no-bake part is great, too! This recipe has both no-bake and cookie dough, which means it is one recipe the kids can easily make themselves. It also is a good cookie dough recipe because you don’t have to worry about using raw eggs. I consider it healthy because it includes peanut butter : ). If I say that it gives me a good excuse to eat more of it! I hope you enjoy them!
No Bake Cookie Dough Cookies Recipe
1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups flour
1 cup peanut butter
12 oz. chocolate chips, separated
Mix butter, sugar and vanilla. Add condensed milk and flour. Fold in chocolate chips, holding back 2/3 cup. Pour into 8×8 pan lined with parchment paper.* The dough is sticky– after all, it is cookie dough.
Melt peanut butter and the 2/3 cup chocolate chips together in a pan or in the microwave and pour on top of the dough. Chill covered for 3 hours or overnight.
This makes a thick cookie. For a thinner one, you could use a larger pan.
*In our house, recipes like this don’t make it into a pan. Sometimes we chill it for a bit in the bowl and then everyone grabs a spoon and dives in.
