Circus Animal Cookie Dough
Edible cookie dough seems to all the rage right now, with the store opening in NYC and more and more flavors popping up on Pinterest. I decided to make my own little take on it with Circus Animal Cookies because everything's tastier and more adorable with them. It's pretty much a known fact.
For this recipe you basically just need what you would need for making cookies, sans egg, and a couple of bags of Circus Animal Cookies.
I wouldn't say this is as good as regular old cookie dough. I don't know what about the egg makes cookie dough so good! But this cookie dough is a close second and it's a heck of a lot safer to eat. No terrible stomach aches or potential of E. coli.
This would be perfect for a party! Or to save in the little cups in the fridge for single-servings through out the week!
