As an avid foodie and middle school student in New Jersey, many know me for my kid-ccentric foodie blog. Though the initial start of my blog, https://afternoontea.me/, was to focus on my adventures of visiting Afternoon Tea locations around the world, over the last three years I’ve expanded my blog to cover amazing local restaurants and great recipes all from the perspective of a kid.  

With all the dinning changes going on, due to COVID-19, we all know that our summer is going to be filled with family movie nights, and small get-togethers with friends. So how do we keep these experiences from becoming mundane? 

Recently, I came up with an egg-less, edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe that is sure to keep things interesting for all ages:

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup of butter
  • ¾ cup of brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 1½ cups of baked flour*
  • 2 Tbs. of milk
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips

Mixing instructions: 

First mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, and mix the wet ingredients into a separate bowl. Then, combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Lastly, mix in the chocolate chips. Once complete, pour into a Pyrex dish and refrigerate overnight.

Tips for Parents:

This is a fun and easy recipe for all ages that you can get creative with. For parents interested in teaching STEM, this recipe is a great way to teach fractions as the measurements to double or halve the recipe require a pen and paper. For those who have preschoolers, changing up the color of the dough or even swapping chocolate chips for sprinkles can be a great idea.
