Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pudding {and a Giveaway!}

Oh my goodness, guys.  Guess what?

I’ve been blogging for a year.

I never dreamed when I started this little ol’ blog just how much fun I would have.  And how much I would learn.  Seriously, when I dove into this hobby, I knew absolutely zero about blogging, or the technology that went along with it.  I’m still learning–every day.  I want to thank you all, so very much, for following along with me on this journey.  Especially those of you who even bothered to stop and read my blog when my posts looked like this.

Holy cow.

The very best part of blogging is something I never expected–forming friendships with readers and other bloggers.  Also, it’s so nice to know there are other crazy people like me out there who sort of have a freak out moment if their family tries to eat something that hasn’t yet been photographed.

Anyway, I wanted to say thank you.  For reading, pinning, following me on Facebook, sharing your own stories and recipes, and for giving me a small little corner of the world to call my own.  And if I could give you all a boatload of hugs and presents, I would.

But I can give one of you this cookbook from Lindsay Landis, of Love and Olive Oil.*  Surely you’ve seen it.  And if you haven’t yet, you need to.

A.MA.ZING.  I had it on pre-order from Amazon since February, and it finally showed up on my doorstep last week.  I haven’t been able to put it down, and I’m seriously considering just working my way through it, cover to cover.  Cookie dough stuffed cinnamon rolls?  I’ll take two, please.  Cookie dough brownies?  ‘Smores?  Blondies?  Um hmm, sign me up!  How can you go wrong eating eggless cookie dough?

The answer: you can’t.

Doodle and I made this pudding the day the book arrived, since I had all of the ingredients already on hand and I couldn’t wait to test out one of the recipes.  It was quick and easy, extremely smooth and creamy, and yep–tasted just like cookie dough.

Is it wrong that I hid the last bowl of this in the back of the fridge, telling the rest of my family it was all gone?

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pudding {and a Giveaway!}
from The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook, by Lindsay Landis
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, divided
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • mini-chocolate chips
  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together ½ cup of the sugar, salt, and cornstarch until no lumps remain. Add milk and heavy cream and whisk over medium heat until mixture begins to thicken and starts to bubble, about 5 to 7 minutes. Lower heat to medium-low and whisk until thick, about 5 minutes longer.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ¼ cup sugar, vanilla and butter, until smooth.
  3. Pour pudding into serving bowls. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing onto the surface of the pudding to keep a skin from forming. Chill until set. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and/or whipped cream prior to serving.

If you’re interested in winning a copy of Linday’s book for your very own, please enter my little giveaway.  Contest closes July 5th at midnight CST – U.S. shipping addresses only.  This is my first time using Rafflecopter, so here goes.  Good luck!

    I had to laugh at the freaking out because your family tries to eat the un-photographed food:-) I have started putting a plate of whatever I just made on top of the refrigerator where no one knows about it. The other night I about tackled my hubby when he went for a banana on the counter. Step away dude! Those are going into cookies! All that to say…I love your blog and I am so happy to have found you! Congrats on your one year! I am so excited to follow and see what you come up with this year! Hugs!!!
    And this cookbook? Oh my…I need it!!!

    OMG, I so hope I win!!

    And secondly, I am SO thankful I’ve found your blog randomly through this psycho huge cyber-space and among all the (literally millions–isn’t that scary!?) baking blogs–yours is truly one-of-a-kind and so awesome & I’m so glad to have been a part of it!! Also, I’ve formed such a meaningful and wonderful friendship with you that is even better than all the Midori margs in the world (yes I just said that and meant it! And I’m not just saying this for an edge in the cookbook giveaway, btw ;)) You have come a long way even though I still would have read your older posts, I enjoy and look forward to seeing your new recipes each week, kick-a$s pictures and funny, sweet posts. You rock, Ashley!!

    And thirdly, COOKIE. DOUGH. PUDDING. I looked all over my fridge and it was SO WEIRD but it wasn’t there?? I figured since this was obviously a magical creation whipped up by dessert fairies that it was highly probable there’d be a large glass in the back of my fridge waiting, but alas, there was none. Anywho, fairies or not I’m making this. I can’t resist the dough!!

  17. Nicky @ Pink Recipe Box

    When I came across this title I expected it to be made with a pre-made pudding mix. So happy it’s not! We can’t get ANY pre-made mixes where I live, so I always have to make stuff from scratch. Pinned!

  18. Amelia

    YUM! What a great giveaway! Your pictures make me want to dive into my computer and eat this dessert! I would love to fold in chunks of real cookie dough once the pudding mixture is cold. I’m all about different textures.

  19. Lori

    Congratulations on 1 year! That cookie dough pudding looks delicious!

  20. Allison @ Alli 'n Son

    I’ve been dying to get my hands on a copy of this book! I’m so making this recipe this weekend, it’s going to be HOT and a no-bake cookie dough dessert is just what I need.

    I’m a new follower! I discovered your blog while looking for blueberry muffin recipes (I’ll be trying your Blueberry Muffins with Coconut Lime Glaze) and have been browsing and added several others to my recipe list 🙂 Taking my two kiddos (just turned 5, and almost 4) on a breakfast picnic tomorrow and muffins (and yogurt, and apples…) will be perfect! It’s been HOT in MN so we’re going to be crazy and have our picnic and park play time early in the day to beat the heat.

    Congrats on your one year blog anniversary!

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
