This was the grand prize winning recipe in the current issue of Taste of Home magazine. It originally called for walnuts, but eliminating that ingredient made a nice NF/EF treat, IMO. The recipe is as follows:

Cookie Dough Truffles

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup pakced brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

*** 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (for the non-allergic group) ***

Chocolate candy coating (whatever type you prefer--we just use the chocolate we have on hand mixed with a little Crisco).

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. add the flour, milk and vanilla; mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips (and walnuts for non-allergic bakers/families). Shape into 1-inch balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and refrigerate for 1 - 2 hours or until firm.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating, (or prepare whatever chocolate coating preferred) stirring often until smooth. Dip balls in coating; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until dirm, about 15 minutes. If desired remelt remaining candy coating and drizzle over candies. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 5 1/2 dozen

Really? We didn't get that many. Very good treat, but super sweet. I didn't want to eat more than one! It really does taste like cookie dough, better the second day IMO.

Reraising because I saw requests for PN/TN- free and egg-free recipes.
