I feel like we’re overdue for an entertainment update so…

After several weeks of movies lying around, waiting to be watched, we finally got around to watching both Interstellar and American Sniper. Drastically different movies, both amazing in their own ways and both must see movies. American Sniper was very obviously intense and sad, but a very good watch. I’d been warned about the length of Interstellar… nearly 3 hours. Watching at home we could easily pause as needed, so that wasn’t an issue, but I could see it being too long in the theaters. However, three hours really did fly by and I found myself glued to the story.

On the other spectrum of movies, we just watched Kingsman: The Secret Service. It was okay, but I wouldn’t say it was an absolute must see. Full of action, but lots of unnecessary aspects to it that kind of took away from the plot. If you’ve seen it, you probably know what I mean.

The only reason we finally got around to watching any of the above movies is because we finally finished Game of Thrones. It was part of our nightly routine to get a few episodes in. Of course now we have the dreaded super long wait until the next season comes out. Not a fan of waiting that long, which is why I like binge watching shows online. If you’ve been on the edge, debating on whether to give it a try or not, I can’t recommend it enough. Such a good series with so many plot twists all of the time.

Growing up I’d always sneak a spoonful of cookie dough from the bowl while it was chilling in the fridge. I still do, if there is any left. I can’t help it. I think I enjoy cookie dough more than baked cookies! After making this ridiculously good cookie dough ice cream not too long ago, we had a tiny bit of egg-free cookie dough remaining, but wanted more. So… snack-able egg-free cookie dough to the rescue!

It tastes just like your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough, but without eggs, making it a safe treat for anyone, anytime! Eat it straight from the bowl or chill it and enjoy a spoonful or two later!

Our favorite way to enjoy this egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough, is to roll it into small balls and freeze for later! They taste incredible straight from the freezer and don’t get rock hard! So, they’re a fun snack year round, and especially when it’s super hot out! Have a sweet treat ready to enjoy whenever you are!

    I make a egg-less cookie dough and it is hit at our house. Rather dangerous as well, as we can’t stay out of it! These look wonderful and great idea to freeze it!

    Interstellar is on our list! And I love that you put this in a big ol’ jar. I might not even need the spoon ;-)

    I would like to bake these. Do you know the temperature of the oven and length of time?

      This particular recipe isn’t designed to be baked. But, you could certainly give it a try following the guidelines of your favorite basic cookie. Though, I can’t promise it will turn out as there isn’t a binding agent in this recipe.

    My boyfriend and I watched Interstellar in the movie theater. I was not thrilled about going to see a 3+ hour movie at the theater but I ended up enjoying the movie. MIND WAS BLOWN! It was a great movie! We received American Sniper in the mail from Netflix and will be watching it sometime soon. I’ll have to make some of this chocolate chip cookie dough to eat while watching it. Mmm. Cookie dough. :)

    Oh how I wish I could turn back the clock and have this recipe when I was in college! I don’t even want to think about how many raw eggs I ate when I didn’t know better :)

      Rachel — July 28, 2015 at 7:15 am

      Haha! I’m sure most feel that way! :)

    WOW this recipe is genius! My entire family is very sensitive to raw foods and are always iffy about eating raw eggs, so egg-free cookie dough sounds like a dream! Definitely going to try this out!

      I hope you enjoy it! Definitely a fun treat, especially if you have egg sensitivities! :)

    I still need to see Interstellar! I also want a jar of this egg free cookie dough. I’m pretty sure I would eat the whole thing….in one sitting…haha.

      You absolutely need both, it’d make the movie experience that much more awesome. ;)

    Ugh I also hate the super long wait to the new seasons, but I could like like a lot of time if there is this cookie dough near me, looks sooo good

    We just moved house and don’t have our oven yet so we were really excited to try this and it turned out scrumptiously! I’m impressed that my sons were able to not eat the dough as soon as it was ready but instead were willing to wait till they could roll it into the yummy little balls. Question though – if I wanted to reduce the amount of sugar for the sake of my 11-year old, how do you think I could slightly rework it? More flour? He won’t want me to but any little bit might be worthwhile. Thanks so much and Happy New Year!

      So glad to hear everyone enjoyed it. As for reducing the sugar, you could try simply reducing it or subbing in some honey and eliminating the milk. You’ll have to play around with it to see what works and still tastes good. Good luck! :)

    How many days will it last?

    • #
      Rachel — June 25, 2018 at 7:43 am

      A week or two easily. Since there aren’t eggs in it, it may last longer, especially if stored properly. Enjoy! :)
