cookie dough cups

i might be one
of very few 
whom actually prefer
baked cookies
raw cookie dough
it may have been
the constant threat 
my mother yielded
"raw cookie dough
will give you worms"
i don't recall
that it
ever happened
to anyone
but perhaps
it isn't discussed
in polite society
i find it 
in a medical sense
i really should have paid more attention
in high school biology

with that introduction
how could you not be hungry
for a little bit of cookie dough
 (wink, wink)
this recipe is sans eggs
so no need to worry
i filled little chocolate cups
but you can roll them and dip in chocolate
or just eat them
out of hand 
cookie dough cups
(printable recipe)
1/2 cup unsalted butter--softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
evaporated milk (as needed)
1 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
toasted and chopped walnuts (optional)
chocolate ganache for topping
tempered chocolate for coating
with a mixer, beat the sugar and butter until creamy.  add the salt, and vanilla and beat again.  stir in the      flour until just incorporated.  add evaporated milk a bit at a time until you reach the consistency you won't take much.  stir in the chocolate chips and nuts if desired.  if putting into cups, generously scoop dough into cups and then dip in with chocolate chips or colored candy. if making into truffles, scoop out desired portions and put on lined cookie sheet. refrigerate until hardened. remove from fridge, roll into balls and dip in tempered chocolate. top with chocolate chips or colored candies as desired.
