This is the final Christmas cookie post of the season. Dave and Rachel brought these Cookie Dough Truffles to this year’s swap, and they were awesome. This was a reprise of their prize winning recipe from a previous swap. If you love cookie dough, you’ll love these too!
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. thawed egg substitute
1 t vanilla extract
1 1/4 c. flour
1 c. mini chocolate morsels
3/4 c. chopped pecans or walnuts
1 (12 oz.) package semisweet chocolate morsels

Beat butter at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add sugars, beating well. Add egg substitute and vanilla, beat well. Add flour and beat well. Stir in miniature chocolate morsels and chopped nuts. Cover and chill 30 minutes.
Shape mixture into 1″ balls. Cover and freeze balls until very firm.
