Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon milk or cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
11/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
6 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup sour cream
10 Oreo (or similar) cookies, crushed
To make dough, beat butter and both sugars with electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in milk, vanilla and salt. Mix in flour just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop teaspoonfuls on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and place in freezer 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar in food processor until creamy. Pulse in milk, almond extract, salt and sour cream. Transfer to a bowl, and stir in crushed cookies. Gently stir in chilled cookie dough chunks and serve immediately with bread sticks or other dippers. Makes 24 servings.
