cookie dough crispy treats and a giveaway

by Kristina Sloggett

in baking,cookbook review,Dessert,Gluten Free,snacks,Vegan

Rice crispies are so versatile, one of my favorite things to be creative with. I’ve made a few uniquely flavored crispies, but these come from a cookie dough genius.

Lindsay Landis has a new cookbook available June 5, and I was given an advance copy for review. The Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook is a celebration of all things cookie dough. A very special cookie dough. Eggless cookie dough.

Cookie dough to be stuffed into peanut butter cups, cinnamon rolls, even crème brûlée! 

Cookie dough to be tucked between two lush layers of gooey goodness:

In addition to the dough being egg free, I also used gluten free flour for the dough. My adaptations to this recipe include Gluten Free Rice Crispies (this was the first time I realized “regular” rice crispies are … not gluten free due to a malt flavoring), non gelatin marshmallows (Sweet & Sara), and a vegan butter.

Want to see these crazy good recipes?

This book has fifty inventive recipes with cookie dough as the star attraction, and I have one extra copy to give away!

How fun! Rice Crispy treats are so versatile, and I remember when I was little my mom used to make them in paper cups with a stick stuck in the bottom to create a fun “treat on a stick” thing. Plus, she added M&Ms. ;)

Anyway, cookie dough. Can’t go wrong. One of the most popular desserts I made when I worked in a coffee shop had a bottom brownie layer, a chocolate chip cookie dough layer and then a later of chocolate frosting. People went nuts.

I love layered desserts like that. Anything brownie, cookie and frosting is good by me! I remember a friend’s mom doing the same thing, making those dixie cup treats! :D

“Layer” not “later.” Crap. Sorry.

Cookie dough is trouble! Is there anything better? My sister and I used to make out own cookie dough frozen yogurt. I would buy the Pillsbury cookie dough and cut it into huge chunks. Then I would soften the vanilla frozen yogurt (my all time favorite). I would mix the two together and then freeze. Oh my goodness…heaven. I know it sounds gross, but I would still try to get away with it!

I hope you’re doing well! I miss you! xoxo

that sounds SO good. yeah, you could and should come up with an updated version… I miss you too! Jason and I are taking a little break this week, so I haven’t been around again online. One of these days I’ll get back into my groove. :D Hope all is going good with you + the boys! XO

I’ve made it many times without any intention of baking it! Though I would really like to try these…and some cookie dough brownies I’ve seen floating about on Pinterest.

Cookies are one of the few things I did not appreciated as much as I should have back when I was vegetarian. The past few years I have only been able to wonder what all these non-vegan cookies at parties and family gatherings taste like. What used too look gross when I was a kid looks so tempting now as an adult. Hope to see this book on my door step with a glass of almond milk soon!
