The Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook Review *Giveaway*

I met Lindsay Landis on Twitter and she told me about her new cookbook, The Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook . I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Being a dietitian, I knew I would save these recipes for special occasions, but with a few birthdays coming up it was perfect timing! I have a secret love of cookie dough. It all goes back to my TCBY days, I used to love their cookie dough topping and I still love cookie dough ice cream. I don’t know what it is about this stuff, but Lindsay clearly is head over heels for the cookie dough.

In The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook: Cookies, Cakes, Candies, and More, Lindsay starts out with a delicious egg free cookie dough recipe that can then be added to any other dessert you can imagine. Lindsay blogs at LoveandOliveOil.com and says the popularity of her Cookie Dough Truffles is what inspired this book. Just goes to show if you want more of something let us know. After reading through the book, I had a couple of questions for Lindsay, who says, even after making this book, she is not sick of it. That is true love.

Do you really think that your love of cookie dough stems from the fact that it is forbidden?

Lindsay: Partially, but also because it’s just so darn delicious.

Do you make desserts that are not related to cookie dough?

Lindsay: Of course! One cannot survive on cookie dough alone (although I admit, I’ve tried!)

On your blog Love and Olive Oil you share recipes that you make almost every day, how, where and when did you learn to cook?

Lindsay: I grew up baking with my mom, but I didn’t really start cooking on my own until college. My husband (then boyfriend) and I both lived in student housing but chose not to purchase campus meal plans, and so we had no choice but to cook. We’ve learned everything we know simply by doing and by making mistakes along the way.

You credit your husband to helping get food on the table, what is his role?

Lindsay: We’re always together in the kitchen. I’m the main baker, but for more savory things he takes the lead. He’s also the reason the kitchen doesn’t look like it was hit by a tornado (which is often the scene when I’m done baking).

What tips can you share with our readers for cooking food and dessert on a regular basis?

Lindsay: Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try things you’ve never made before. If you start with a good recipe chances are you’ll succeed.

Cookie Dough Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

I owe to my readers and school age kids to try a few recipes out. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. I made the Cookie Dough Cupcakes for my kids’ birthdays and I will tell you they are worth the effort, everyone loved them!


Cookie Dough Ice Pops

I actually found one recipe that doesn’t break the diet, Lindsay’s Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pops. They were the inspiration for my 90-calorie Fudge Bars. The flavor of cookie dough is achieved even if the texture is hard to match, nonetheless it was very refreshing and creative. Kudos to Lindsay! I even made them with soymilk so that they would be parve and we all loved them. .

If you want the recipes of the photos in the main image, Cookie Dough Krispies, Cookie Dough Smores and cookie Dough Whoopie Pies you will have to buy the book, you won’t be disappointed.  You also have the chance to win a copy right now.
