Peanut Butter Cookie Dough

I love cookie dough (even with eggs… I’m reckless like that).

This recipe is without eggs, so rest assured, it can be devoured safely! I’ve made this cookie dough before and made it for truffles, pops, and as an add-in for ice cream. It’s quite versatile.

Wondering how I got it in that perfect disk? I used a springform pan and lined the bottom and sides with parchment paper and did my best to get it flat and even. This worked like a charm to just place it between my cake layers. Try it with your buttercream as well. It was an easy way to get an amazing center! Just be sure to use the same sized pans that you baked the cakes in. You can make this the day before baking and transfer it out of the pan to bake in it.

Be sure to keep the cookie dough cold so wrap it in plastic wrap and put it into a Ziplock bag to store it in the fridge.
