5 Ways to Celebrate National Cookie Day

December 15, 2023

The holiday season is here—and by that, we mean National Cookie Day.

It’s no secret that we’re all about the dough. From our signature Almond Chickpea to our seasonal Triple Chocolate Hazelnut, every bite of our beloved cookie dough is vegan, filled with sneaky nutrients, and safe to eat raw—no baking required. What could be better?

If you’re one of the rare few who can resist devouring your dough straight out of the tub, consider us impressed. There are countless ways to enjoy our cookie dough, and in honor of National Cookie Day, we’ve rounded up a few of our faves. 

  • Make a mug cake. This cookie dough hack couldn’t be easier—just scoop some dough into a mug and microwave for about 45 seconds for a gooey delight.

Hot tip: ​​Black Bean Brownie Batter is an especially tasty mug cake option. Bonus points for topping it with a bit of vanilla ice cream.

  • Try a cookie skillet. Hosting a holiday gathering? This dessert is sure to be a hit. Just empty a tub of cookie dough into a cast iron skillet, smooth it out, and bake at 375°F for about 20 minutes.

Hot tip: ​​The topping options are endless! Nuts, whipped cream, a drizzle of nut butter…

  • Use it as a pie crust. Cookie + pie = the dessert of dreams. Spread the dough in a pie pan and bake at 425°F for 15-20 minutes. When slightly brown, remove from the oven and let cool.

Hot tip: ​​Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Dough makes the perfect base for a chocolate pie. Yum!

  • Whip up power snacks. Who says cookie dough is just for dessert? Shape your dough into balls, coat with nuts or coconut, and keep them in the freezer for a convenient and sweet snack.

Hot tip: You can’t go wrong with Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough for this recipe.

  • Keep it classic and bake them. Sometimes, simple is best. Bake your cookie dough in the oven at 350°F degrees for 15-18 minutes—or opt for the air fryer to enjoy your cookies even sooner!

Hot tip: Headed to a cookie exchange this holiday season? Skip the stress of baking from scratch and use the dough of your choice.
