Just over a week ago an old friend and I went to Pizza Hut then to the cinema for a night out (the kind of nights we used to do when we were at school) and we had a great dessert. A little round pan with cookie dough all baked slightly with a nice big blob of ice cream on top and chocolate sauce drizzled all over. It was so good and it made me want to try making it myself. So this is kind of a double bookmarked recipe because I used this idea but used a cookie dough recipe I've had bookmarked for a little while from The Goddess's Kitchen. I used Maria's recipe (which she originally found in The Good Cookie by Tish Boyle) for the dough (leaving out the walnuts), but baked the dough altogether in an ovenproof dish then served up some slices with ice cream. Really tasty treat! Crisp cookie dough on top and all soft and gooey in the middle. Loved it!
Cookie Dough Dessert
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup of firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, cut into 1/4 inch pieces (I used chocolate drops - a mix of milk and plain chocolate)
1. Preheat oven to 350˚F/160˚C.
2. Grease a 8"x 8" oven dish
3. Whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl and set to the side.
4. In a separate larger bowl, whisk the melted butter and sugar then add in the eggs one by one, then the vanilla until well blended.
5. Stir in the flour mix with a wooden spoon then add in the chocolate chips.
6. Spread into the oven dish and bake for 8-10 minutes.
7. Divide into portions and serve with ice cream and chocolate sauce.
