    Thank you for this! I love eating cookie dough, but since I am pregnant, I wanted to avoid eating raw eggs. But how wonderful! Now I can enjoy cookie dough because there are no eggs; yay!

    I’ve watched several of your videos, by the way, and I’ve really enjoyed them! Thank you for blessing so many people with all your work and effort. It’s fun watching them and inspiring!

  3. I tried these and idk why but the turn out was a bit too moist to roll into balls :c Did I do something wrong?

  4. I think you forgot to type about flour….it was used in the video

    • Corinne says:

      You forgot the Flour! Now I know why mine tasted not good at all!!

      • Oh no! I’m so sorry, I write my recipes late at night and I forget to proofread it, lesson learned. :/ I’ve added the flour, I hope you will make it again, because it’s delicious! 🙂

    • Yes, I just fixed it. I apologize, I write out the recipes late at night and I don’t always proof read it. Lesson learned. :/

  9. How long can I leave the cookies outside aft I refrigerate it?

  10. Hi Lainey,
    I am about to try your recipe, i am still a beginner for my age 12 so can you please give me tips on no bake recipes… My mom doesnt want to buy me an oven yet….. Please …. Thanks …
    And last question are you a filipino?

  11. I think this recipe is awesome! I am nine years old and I can make this easily with my brother who is six years old! You have a lot of great ideas and I can’t wait for your next video

  12. Hi. I am a tween and I believe I am at an intermediate level (I make a lot of deserts for family gatherings, bake cookies for my neighbors every year, and some have asked to buy things from me), but I was wondering if you could do simple one severing or two recipes so you could quickly whip up something for you and a friend. I like your channel and LOVE this recipe( I halfed it so that I only made a few but regret that because they are SO good!). Keep doing what your doing. You inspire so many of my friends who have never made anything from scratch to actually bake things. Tell me which of your recipes I should try next!! 🙂

  13. Btw I kinda have a stomach ache because I ate them all lol ( because I don’t have mini chocolate chips I found that you could make a oatmeal version). On the plus side my hand now smell really good! 🙂 thanks again for the great recipe!

  14. candy lover says:

    you never said what to do with the flour

  15. How many servings does this recipe makes?

  16. Hi can I use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar
    btw are you a half filipino? cos u look like one, and i saw your videos making our common foods we have here in the philippines hehe

  17. Jenniffer says:

    I followed your instructions… I realized that you didn’t put the flour in the instructions so that’s why mine tasted like sand… It was terrible. Can i put flour in the last minute?

  18. btw can I use daricream buttermilk? It is soft
    I can’t find any softened butter on our market -this is the image of the butter

  19. Hey! I tried doing this but it was too moist! I tried adding flour but still a little too moist 🙁 Also, it was a bit yellow because I didn’t have any vanilla extract available.

    However, I tried the no bake cheesecake recipe and it went so well!

    P.S. First time baker/cook. Newbie at this, would appreciate easy and no bake recipe because we dont have any oven 🙁

    • Hi Belle, Oh no! When you softened the butter you didn’t melt it right?

      Awesome, I”m so glad the no bake cheesecake turned out great! xx

  20. Mikaela says:

    Do you have to use a beater? Can you use a whisk for the whole thing? Ily

  21. Hi there! Can I make these ahead and keep in fridge? I’m guessing bringing them to room temperature would be important for the taste.

    • Yes, you can but make sure you keep them well covered and don’t leave them in the fridge for too long because like any other food it can become stale. 🙂 sorry for the late reply!

  22. I’m doing this for a project and I need to know how many this makes , can you please tell me ?

    • HI Kady!
      I’m so sorry for the late response! Did I respond in time?? It’s about dozen and half 1 inch balls. Hope that helped!

  23. I made this but I used maple syrup as a substitute for vanilla extract and it came out runny so added more flour. It wasn’t all crumbly like yours was? Is that bad?

    • Hi Nani! Sorry for the late response! :/ Here’s the thing with this recipe since it has few ingredients it’s hard to substitute. If you were to replace the vanilla extract I suggest replace it with another extract like almond! (: Did it taste good at least with the maple syrup? Anywho, I hope this comment helps you!!! Let me know if you have anymore questions xx (: Happy baking!

  24. Loved the video but unfortunately i didnt follow the recipe correctly and it ended in a disaster…
    I’m going to try again very soon as now i know what to do and im really excited to see how they’re supposed to turn out!

    • Hi Isabel! Let me know what happened so I can be of help (: – really sorry about that 🙁 have a lovely day! xx

  25. Beginning Baker says:

    Hey Lainey this week is teachers appreciation week and I need these to stay good till Wednesday how long do they last?
