Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

Cookie Dough Balls

To my Godfather:
We made a recipe this week-end that was a hit with everyone!  We all love to eat cookie dough, and mom said this was a good recipe where we didn't have to worry about raw eggs!  Tell my Godmother to make them for you!  I hope you enjoy them!  Cole

Cookie Dough Balls

 2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk
Mini or regular size M&M's, Chocolate Chips or Both
Chocolate chips or chocolate bark for dipping


Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt and mix on low speed. Stir in M&Ms or chocolate chips (or both).
Cover and chill dough for 1 hour.

When dough is firm enough to handle, form dough into balls and arrange on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Place sheets in freezer and let chill for 30 minutes.

Melt chocolate chips/bark in microwave stirring every 30 seconds until it is completely melted. Dip cookie balls into chocolate to cover. Chill until set. Store, chilled, in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
