It doesn’t matter what way you look at it, cookies are a fantastic treat. People love them, regardless of their flavor or their texture. Of course, most of us have a favorite and sometimes, it may be something rather unusual. That is the case with this treat, which is a recipe for a cookie bowl. Basically, it takes a homemade cookie and makes it into a bowl so that you can serve ice cream.
This is perhaps one of the most versatile cookie recipes I have ever seen. You can make it out of almost any type of cookie dough, from snickerdoodle to chocolate chip. It really is the shape that makes it unique and once you fill it with ice cream and drizzle some toppings over it, you will find that it disappears quickly.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
⅔ cup firmly packed brown sugar
⅓ cup granulated suage
¾ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons butter, melted
⅔ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray pan with vegetable pan spray.
In large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt; mix well.
In small microwave-safe bowl, melt butter; cool slightly. Add eggs and vanilla to butter; whisk until smooth.
Add butter mixture to dry ingredients; mix well to form stiff dough.
Mix in chocolate morsels.
Roll out dough on generously-floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness.
Cut 5-inch round disks from dough.
Drape one disk over each cup mold of pan, pressing to form smooth surface.
Bake 12-14 minutes or until cookie cups are firm and golden brown. Cool on pan on cooling rack 5 minutes. Loosen bottom edges of cookies from pan using small spatula. Carefully remove cups from pan and cool completely. Wash and dry pan; repeat with remaining dough.
