RECIPE: No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Stars

A patriotic dessert doesn’t have to be red, white and blue. And a cookie doesn’t have to be baked.

This recipe from McCormick makes chocolate chip cookie dough stars.

Since there’s no oven and no knives, you can delegate the task to a fledgling cook. Prep time is 20 minutes.

RECIPE: CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH STARS

Ingredients For 24 Cookies

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 4 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
  •  
    Preparation

    1. PREPARE a 15 x 10 x 1-inch shallow baking pan by lining with foil. With an electric mixer…

    2. BEAT the cream cheese and butter in a large bowl at medium speed, until light and fluffy. Add the sugars, vanilla and salt; mix until blended and smooth. Stir in the vanilla wafer crumbs and chocolate chips.

    3. PRESS the cookie dough firmly into the pan, in an even layer. Freeze for 1 to 2 hours or until firm.

    4. FLIP the cookie dough onto a cutting board and remove the foil. Cut into star shapes with 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter.

    5. PRESS the cookie dough scraps back into pan, refreezing it if too soft, to cut out more stars. (If you eat them, we won’t blame you: We’ll join you. You can eat them with impunity since there is no raw egg).
