Confetti Cookie Dough Bites

Guess what today is?  Only the best [unofficial] food holiday: Cookie Dough Lover’s Day.

confetti-cookie-dough-bites-49
Why is it Cookie Dough Lover’s Day?  Because Lindsay’s cookbook, The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook, is available for purchase today.  And because any day is a day to celebrate cookie dough.

Especially when there are sprinkles involved.  You know what I mean?

Confetti Cookie Dough Bites

So last Tuesday, several of us so-called cookie dough addicts lovers had a Twitter conversation about said love affair and decided to unofficially declare today a national food holiday because: a) we can and because b) seemingly everyone loves cookie dough!

So go ahead, feast your eyes on my egg-free confetti cookie dough creation: confetti cookie dough bites.

Not only do I have a thing with cookie dough, I have a thing with sprinkles.  And as I mentioned yesterday, I will always choose sprinkles (or Skittles) over chocolate, so my choice for egg-free cookie dough was decidedly a sweet, sugary dough with colorful sprinkles!

Confetti Cookie Dough Bites

Yield: 32 1-inch bites

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Egg-free cookie dough bites studded with multi-colored sprinkles. Perfect for smoothies, blondie bars, or afternoon snacking at the pool!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 Tbs. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbs. milk or cream
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup sprinkles

Directions:

Beat the butter and sugars together until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Mix in the vanilla milk or cream. Slowly mix in the flour and salt and mix until fully incorporated. Fold in the sprinkles.

Roll into 1-inch bites and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Refrigerate to allow the bites to harden.

Cassie's Notes:
I can't lie and say that I didn't eat several of these as a snack when I made them. But they have many uses: roll them into smaller balls to add to ice cream; use them in smoothies, or instead of rolling into bites, spread them onto a baked batch of brownies, blondies, or cookie bars and refrigerate until set; add a small amount to the cored center of a cupcake before frosting for a surprise center; add 3-4 more tablespoons of milk or cream and mix thoroughly, then serve with graham crackers, fruit, marshmallows, etc. for a fun dip!

    I love the way you guys are celebrating Lindsay’s book. You guys are just too sweet. And man, these look dangerous! I could imagine just having a stash in front of me and eating it until it’s all gone!

    So cute! And I love all the suggestions you gave for extra ways to use them (not that I’m at all opposed to eating one or eight of them straight off the baking sheet). 🙂

    When you stick those gorgeous cookie bites in a dough like that, it gives me free reign to eat them like appetizers. Awesome treat and psyched about Lindsey’s new book!

    • Cassie replied: — June 6th, 2012 @ 11:26 am

      that is exactly how i ate them. every last one!

    I think i’ll bring my little brother a batch of these home next time I visit, he’s a cookie dough fool, and maybe i’ll get some cool sister cred 😉

    Rachel @ Baked by Rachel — June 5, 2012 @ 12:49 pm

    Ha I love the sprinkles. You should’ve hidden a skittle inside of each one! 😉

      Why didn’t I think of that?!

    Steve @ the black peppercorn — June 5, 2012 @ 1:22 pm

    love it – so not surprised you threw sprinkle in there! I need to try making some cookie dough bites. Problem is I would not be able to stop eating them

    sally @ sally's baking addiction — June 5, 2012 @ 2:03 pm

    I am OBVIOUSLY in love with these little bites Cassie! I pre-ordered Lindsay’s cookbook and I could NOT be more excited. I recently made similar balls – but with golden oreos + cream cheese, covered in white chocolate and sprinkles. I need to try the cookie dough version. Sprinkles make everything better. 🙂

    How awesome would it be if we made this an OFFICIAL official holiday and got the day off from work to eat cookie dough?? AMAZE.

    Oh i love the sound of these. Funfetti is one of my favorite cake flavors but I think I’d love it even more in cookie dough ball form!

    • Cassie replied: — June 6th, 2012 @ 11:19 am

      Amen to that! Sprinkles are always the best!
