These thick cake-like cookies are a recipe from my mom. She made them all the time when I was growing up. Her recipe calls for milk, but all I had on hand was whipping cream and they turned out GREAT!
This was a busy week and these were just a last-minute dessert for friends. Quick and easy- you can top them with a chocolate glaze or frosting. I used my favorite buttercream frosting- so yummy, but since it doesn’t harden completely they weren’t stackable. This is a great recipe to have handy for a busy week that still needs dessert in it!

My thoughts: Only one– the cookie dough is AMAZING….amazing……I don’t recommend the eating of cookie dough that contains raw eggs. You definitely shouldn’t do it…..or let your kids do it……….. soooooooooo good……. 😉
