Don’t hate me, but I’m going to tell you something that may be an unpopular opinion to most. I’m not a huge fan of chocolate chip.
There. I said it. When I reach for a cookie it’s typically a snickerdoodle or sugar cookie. Chocolate chip requires me to be in the mood. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
Now, that’s not to say that I don’t like chocolate chip cookies at all. Like I said, I simply have to be in the right mood and, probably, not have any of my real favorite choices available.
BUT! But I may have found a new way to enjoy chocolate chip!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Wontons
For starters, this is a cookie dough recipe with eggs. Those of you who like to eat cookie dough raw may know this, but I want to make sure to note this, raw eggs present a danger of Salmonella.
Also, when flour is cooked, it kills any potential bacteria that can be found in agricultural products that haven’t been treated to kill germs.
Now that we have that bit of housekeeping out of the way, let’s talk about this new delicious way to enjoy chocolate chip cookies.
Chocolate Chip Wontons
This chocolate chip cookie dough recipe includes eggs and flour, in addition to brown sugar and butter. Or, you could even use frozen chocolate chip cookie dough if you prefer.
Once you have your raw cookie dough prepared, it’s time to make the wontons!
Now, have you watched Crazy Rich Asians? I LOVE this movie and have watched it more than I should probably admit. (I even attended the local red carpet event with the author and actors).
Okay, back to my point, during one incredibly meaningful scene, the cousins are sitting around the table making dumplings. They are each discussing the different ways they were taught.
The importance of the scene is wrapped round the concept of family traditions, together, and acceptance.
All that to say, this is the ideal time to bring in the kids and have them help in the kitchen!
I know some of my greatest memories happened in the kitchen; especially when it came to spending time with my grandmothers. It was such a natural way to be involved in the tradition.
Okay, back on point. Sorry.
Our chocolate chip wontons will feature a teaspoon of cookie dough in the middle, and we’ll bind them together with a brush of milk.
Then, the wontons go directly into hot oil for 2 minutes on each side before removing the cooked wontons and placing them on a paper towel to absorb the access oil.
The last step, which can be optional, is simply sprinkling the warm cookie dough wontons with powdered sugar before serving.
The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Wontons are delicious served as is, or are also great served with chocolate sauce or a dollop of whipped cream.
It’s your chocolate chip treat, go ahead and live your best life while enjoying it!
