This is literally the best thing I have come across in a LONG time, I think I got a little too excited about the whole thing really. Anyway, I know this is a bit of a different post to my usual ones but I've decided I'm going to try and add some varied content to littlegoldstars. My friend told me that you could buy cookie dough in a tube agers ago from Sainsburys but because I never ever go in, I just haven't had the chance to try it. Cookies/cookie dough is my absolute favourite and an absolute weakness. I saw this in Tesco a few weeks ago and was so excited that you could buy cookie dough! I think it is usually about £3.50 ish but it happened to be on offer for £1.50 so I jumped at the chance.
I started off eating little bits straight from the tub (its amazing) until deciding that I should actually try and cook them. I'm not a baker or a cook and I rarely step foot in the kitchen, but honestly these were the easiest thing to do and they tasted amazing. All you do is take out the cookie dough and warm it in your hands until its a little softer, or I guess you could pop it in the microwave for a few seconds. You then tear off little pieces and mould them into balls, place on a baking tray and pop in the oven. Simple! On the instructions it says to leave them for 12-15 minutes I think, but obviously if you want them a bit chewy you leave them in a little longer.
My dad got involved while I was trialing this and has the idea of literally cutting slices from the actual chunk of cookie dough. These were obviously bigger than my correctly done balls of dough and consequently multiplied in size while cooking. We ended up with normal sized cookies and giant ones, but to be honest it didn't matter because they were both amazing. They also do ginger bread and chocolate brownie packs too so I'll definitely be trying those soon!
