Believe me, I tried three different recipes. I even froze the dough overnight, thinking that would help. Nope. Each time I ended up with cracks and holes and cookie dough sliding off the bowl I used as a mold.
These bowls would be great for parties or to use as gifts. If your dad is a cookie monster like mine, this would be a really fun present for Father’s Day.
PRINTABLE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE BOWL RECIPE
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1 3/4 – 2 cups flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
3 cup bowl
Reynolds non-stick tin foil
Make cookie dough. Cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and beat until well combined. Combine salt and baking powder with 1 1/2 cups of flour. Add to wet ingredients and stir just to combine. If the dough is sticky add the remaining 1/4 cup flour, if not, then just skip it. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
Line the outside of the bowl with non-stick tin foil, making sure the non-stick side is facing out.
Roll the cookie dough out into a large circle. Drape it over the tin foil lined bowl, cut off any excess dough. Freeze for 30 minutes.
Sorry, I missed taking a picture of this step.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bake chocolate chip cookie dough bowl for 30-36 minutes until golden brown.
Allow cookie bowl to cool for about 20 minutes then lift it up off the bowl. Allow it to cool completely.
Cover the bowl in plastic wrap and store at room temperature. Do NOT put it in an airtight container or it will get too soft and break. (Yes, I did that with one of the bowls I made.)
Fill with yummy cookies before serving.
