HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
2 Sticks of Butter – softened
1 cup of Sugar
1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
3 cups of Flour
1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder
FOR THE FROSTING:
1 stick of Butter – softened
8 ounces of Cream Cheese – softened
1 teaspoon of Vanilla
3 Tablespoons of Heavy Cream
1 bag of Mini Chocolate Chips
Ben and Jerry’s Edible Cookie Dough Bites – found in the Freezer section
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:
In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, using the Whisk attachment, add the Butter, Sugar, Vanilla, and Egg, and blend until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, add the Flour, and Baking Powder, and stir well to blend. Add the Flour a little at a time and mix on low to blend, until all the Flour is added. Remove the Whisk attachment, and use the paddle. Continue to blend the Cookie dough until it’s completely blended and a smooth ball starts to form. Scrape down the mixing bowl as needed. Add 1 cup of the Mini Chocolate Chips, and fold in gently.
Line two cookie sheets with Parchment paper, and roll the cookie dough into small balls, about 1 inch balls, and place the balls on the Parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or just until the cookies start to turn a light golden brown around the edges. About half way through baking the cookies, check the oven, and the cookies may have started to crack a little. Take a flat bottom glass, dip it in Sugar before lightly applying to each cookie – smash the cookies very gently, and slightly, making them a little flatter, and spread out a little more. This will give the cookies the crinkle look.
When the cookies are done, remove from the oven to a wire rack to cool completely. While cookies are cooling, make the Frosting.
In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, add the softened Butter, and Cream Cheese, and blend to combine. Add the Vanilla, and Heavy Cream, and mix. Add the Powdered sugar a little at a time, blending after each addition, until the Frosting is smooth and fluffy.
Frost the tops of the cooled cookies with the Frosting, using a metal spatula for easily swirling the Frosting on the cookies. Place one edible Cookie Dough Bite in the center of each Cookie, and sprinkle with additional Mini Chocolate Chips. Serve, and Enjoy!
