a very dairy dessert: cookie dough dip

And not just at Christmas. Heck, I can eat sugar cookies all year round. 
Just ask my husband. 
Or maybe don't. 
On the off chance he hasn't noticed I snitch cookies from the freezer on a semi-regular basis. 
But if you've had it up to here (right about your hairline) with cookies this time of year, I have your out: out an equally cheery and fun dessert aptly called "cookie dough dip."
Minus the raw eggs. If you worry about that kind of thing. 

{Recommendation: Make a double batch. When you slather this dip between two graham crackers, it'll be hard to keep them on the plate.}

Mix 1/2 c. butter (thank you, cow!) with 1/3 cup brown sugar. Add 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 8-oz block of softened cream cheese. Add in 1/2 c. powdered sugar and 3/4 cup chocolate chips. (I recommend the mini ones.)

If you're not eating this immediately, keep it refrigerated. 

But I mean really. Who isn't going to eat this immediately?

You can serve this graham cracker dippers or spread the dip between two graham crackers for an on-the-go snack. 

Side note: With men who know dairies best, it's dip-between-crackers two-to-one. 

This Christmas, add a little something different to your dessert buffet. Put out your cookies. Heat up the apple cider. And toss in some cookie dough dip sandwiches. 

George Strait approves.

(And Bessie from Dairy Makes Sense says it's not too shabby either.)
