cookie dough crispy treats and a giveaway

Rice crispies are so versatile, one of my favorite things to be creative with. I’ve made a few uniquely flavored crispies, but these come from a cookie dough genius.

Lindsay Landis has a new cookbook available June 5, and I was given an advance copy for review. The Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook is a celebration of all things cookie dough. A very special cookie dough. Eggless cookie dough.

Cookie dough to be stuffed into peanut butter cups, cinnamon rolls, even crème brûlée! 

Cookie dough to be tucked between two lush layers of gooey goodness:

In addition to the dough being egg free, I also used gluten free flour for the dough. My adaptations to this recipe include Gluten Free Rice Crispies (this was the first time I realized “regular” rice crispies are … not gluten free due to a malt flavoring), non gelatin marshmallows (Sweet & Sara), and a vegan butter.

This book has fifty inventive recipes with cookie dough as the star attraction, and I have one extra copy to give away!

    How fun! Rice Crispy treats are so versatile, and I remember when I was little my mom used to make them in paper cups with a stick stuck in the bottom to create a fun “treat on a stick” thing. Plus, she added M&Ms. 😉

    Anyway, cookie dough. Can’t go wrong. One of the most popular desserts I made when I worked in a coffee shop had a bottom brownie layer, a chocolate chip cookie dough layer and then a later of chocolate frosting. People went nuts.

      I love layered desserts like that. Anything brownie, cookie and frosting is good by me! I remember a friend’s mom doing the same thing, making those dixie cup treats! 😀

  2. Emily says

    This is the pErFeCT cookbook for me! I love love love cookie dough and I’m always looking for ways to eat it…that isn’t simply uncooked dough :)

  3. says

    Cookie dough is trouble! Is there anything better? My sister and I used to make out own cookie dough frozen yogurt. I would buy the Pillsbury cookie dough and cut it into huge chunks. Then I would soften the vanilla frozen yogurt (my all time favorite). I would mix the two together and then freeze. Oh my goodness…heaven. I know it sounds gross, but I would still try to get away with it!

    I hope you’re doing well! I miss you! xoxo

    • spabettie says

      that sounds SO good. yeah, you could and should come up with an updated version… I miss you too! Jason and I are taking a little break this week, so I haven’t been around again online. One of these days I’ll get back into my groove. 😀 Hope all is going good with you + the boys! XO

  4. says

    The only thing I can even think to type is, “GIVE ME THAT. GIVE ME THAT NOOOOWWWW.” The chocolate drizzle especially is killing me. I need some rice krispie goodness now! Sign me up! (preferably with m&ms)

  5. says

    I HAVE to have this cook book!! I seriously live for cookie dough 😀 I’d tell you my favourite recipe using cookie dough, but I seriously just love eating any chocolate chip cookie dough. I’ve made it many times without any intention of baking it! Though I would really like to try these…and some cookie dough brownies I’ve seen floating about on Pinterest.

    PUH-LEASE I need to win! :)

  6. says

    Wait–share a recipe I’ve made using cookie dough? You mean, other than eating cookie dough out of a bowl, with a spoon? Because THAT is one spectacular non-recipe requiring recipe 😉 Yum YUM, I like the sound of this cookbook!

  7. says

    I am OBSESSED with chocolate chip cookies, homemade is the best treat in the world. This book sounds freakin’ amazing!!!

  8. Molly says

    Ooohhhhhhh! Yes please! That is so perfect for me since about only half of the cookie dough ever makes it into the oven! :)

  9. Laurel C says

    I love chocolate chip cookies, but have never thought of incorporating them into rice crispy treats! where were these when I was little???

  10. nik says

    My all-time favorite cookies are my grandma’s Sicilian cookies…fig-filled or cocoa or lemon or the oh-so-yumful rainbow slices. Always my favorite! Cheers!

    • spabettie says

      and cheers to you, Nik! you are one of two people who mentioned a fig filled Sicilian cookie… I need to research these and make some! I love figs and they sound good – all the flavors you mentioned do…

  11. says

    Oh MY. I heart these, looooove! Let’s see, my favorite cookie is actually what the commenter above me mentioned…my Nonna’s Sicilian fig cookies. Nothing ever will live up to how good those were <3

    • spabettie says

      haa, thanks Gretchen! I know as little as you, but this is catchy! (and still in my head…) 😀

  12. says

    my favorite ice cream is the so delicious snickerdoodle and it has snickerdoodle cookie dough in it! i haven’t seen it in forever though so the tempt coffee biscotti (vegan and gluten free) is my new favorite ice cream ever. it has like little chunks of chocolate cookie dough. magic. (that’s my anything post as it relates to cookie dough:)

  13. Ashley says

    I love soft chocolate chip cookies! But anything with chocolate or cookie dough is amazing! Oh and I just came across your post for double chocolate protein cookies and now I want to go an make these immediately, they look really good!

  14. says

    Will definitely be making this for my husband. Rice Krispy treats are his favorite and he will love the ‘filling’ for sure… and I can lick the bowl. Yum.

  15. says

    A cookbook devoted to cookie dough-that’s intense! lol Your crispy treats look SO good, what a great idea. I’m not entering the giveaway, just wanted to say you totally rocked my socks off. :)

  16. Hawai‘i Leah says

    I am stuck in an airport looking at your amazing crispy treats and salivating over the cookbook…I NEED A KITCHEN ASAP!

  17. Amanda says

    Cookies are one of the few things I did not appreciated as much as I should have back when I was vegetarian. The past few years I have only been able to wonder what all these non-vegan cookies at parties and family gatherings taste like. What used too look gross when I was a kid looks so tempting now as an adult. Hope to see this book on my door step with a glass of almond milk soon!

  18. Megan says

    Pinned and FB’d! :) LOVE getting my SpaBettie email every time you post! I always get them around 9:00 or so, and it’s my favorite time of night! :)

  19. says

    OMG, these look amazing! They most definitely need to be sold in our bakery.

    Favorite cookie, that’s a tough decision… so many! But I posted a chocolate oatmeal cookie this morning that is definitely a good one. :)

    • spabettie says

      I LOVE this story – so awesome what we ate as kids – mine was spoonfuls of frosting from the can. at my friends house – we never had that at ours – which made it that much more delicious! 😉

  20. Maureen says

    my husband loves cookie dough cheesecake and our favorite cookie recipe is from a B&B in Calistoga California called the Foothill house Sweet Dreams. so so so tasty.

  21. Kristen N. says

    I’ve recently made my first batch of chocolate chip cookies in a long time. Let’s just say that I have found the one cc cookie recipe that I’ll use for the rest of my life! XD

  22. Nancy says

    Years ago I found a recipe for Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes. They’ve become everyone’s favorite. I’m pretty sure it’s the naughtiness of eating the dough that’s part of the appeal. Thanks for the giveaway.

    • spabettie says

      cookie dough cupcakes sound fantastic, I can see how they would easily be a favorite. Each time I eat cookie dough, I think of when I was a kid, being warned by my mom not to eat it…

  23. Sadie says

    How could I pick just one favorite cookie?! I LOVE chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles, oreos, and no bake cookies the best though.

  24. Brittany Rowlands says

    One of my favorite recipes I’ve made with cookie dough recently is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies. A layer of brownies on the bottom, and a layer of cookie dough on top. SO GOOD! I love anything cookie dough… Just the vegan kind, of course! ; )

    • spabettie says

      oh, I love layered desserts like that. anything brownie is good with me! and YES – vegan cookie dough has the added plus of being able to eat it raw! 😉 happy weekend, Brittany!
