Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

There I was one night making myself a small bowl of cookie dough. I felt shame and embarrassment for secretly eating it after everyone else went to bed, but darn it, I wanted cookie dough!

On a whim, I posted my first eggless cookie dough for one and the next morning I woke up to THOUSANDS of people sharing, talking and making my recipe.

To this day, Eggless Cookie Dough is still one of my most popular recipes, so I decided to add to the collection.
