Recipe Notes

Also:

  • This can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 days or in the freezer for 2 months.
  • As this is raw cookie dough, take your time beating the sugars with the butter well as you don’t want to have sugar crystals in each bite!
  • For a sugar cookie dough frosting , replace brown sugar with white sugar and omit the chocolate chips.
  • Its easiest to just spread the frosting on top. If you want to pipe this , some suggestions : a) use mini chocolate chips or the smallest chocolate chips you can find. b) use the largest piping tip you have so that the chips don’t clog the tip! c) if you don’t have mini chocolate chips or a large piping tip , just chop off a large corner of your piping bag and pipe simple round swirls. d) or don’t fold in the chocolate chips . Pipe as usual and sprinkle the chips on top!
