Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Jennifer Segreti


These balls are meant to be eaten as is, from the freezer! Of course this is an egg-free recipe, where I use Greek yogurt as a binder. I could eat cookie dough all day long, now I can without the hazard. Enjoy!

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls


  • 1In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with a paddle attachment (or with a large bowl and a wooden spoon) cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about three minutes in the machine. Beat in yogurt along with the vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  • 2Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add all at once to the butter and sugar mixture and stir until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • 3Scoop large spoonfuls or ice cream scoops onto a waxed paper lined cookie sheet. You can spear each dough ball with a cute plastic fork or a popsicle stick, or just leave them in balls like I did. Place in the freezer overnight or until frozen, at least three hours.
