Now onto the recipe. I don’t even know if I can express my love for chocolate chip cookies, but let’s just say it HUGE. So when I saw chocolate chunk cookie dough that’s both organic and made with great ingredients, it was clearly my go to for the Bunny Bake Off! This cookie dough is phenomenal in and of itself, but I say go big or go home when there’s a year’s worth of Annie’s at stake! And what’s the only thing better than a dessert? Two desserts disguised as one. That’s where this chocolate chip cookie cheesecake skillet comes in.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
-Two 12 oz package of Annie’s Organic Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough
-8 oz organic cream cheese (room temperature)
-¼ cup coconut sugar
-5 oz plain unsweetened yogurt (Icelandic or Greek ideally)
-1 tsp vanilla
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large, greased skillet, mix together the separated cookie dough pieces and spread to cover the entire bottom of the skillet.
- In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, yogurt, coconut sugar, egg, and vanilla using a hand mixer until well mixed.
- Pour the mixture over top of the cookie dough, spreading it evenly.
- Put the skillet in the preheated oven, and bake for 45-55 minutes until the top layer is well browned and the cookie is cooked through.
- Let cool for 30 minutes to an hour, slice, and enjoy!
I’m pretty sure you can’t even realize how much you need this cookie cheesecake combo in your life until you’ve had a slice. Trust me, there’s no going back! I topped mine with a scoop of organic ice cream and sprinkles, but feel free to play around! It’s also pretty darn good on its own. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
