Let’s be real for a second, we are all eating cookie dough. Whether you are stealing a bite before you throw the cookies in the oven or straight up eating it with a spoon, we are ALL doing it! I would love to meet someone who has truly never eaten cookie dough. It happens and we’re all cool with it here. Let’s just take that extra little step and make sure the cookie dough we are eating is 100% safe. This Edible Cookie Dough has fewer ingredients than your normal cookie dough, is just as tasty, and safe for you to eat!

The two things that are considered dangerous in normal cookie dough are the raw eggs and flour. We cut the eggs out completely in this recipe, but we still have to deal with the flour. You’re going to heat treat the flour to kill any bad bacteria that could be hanging around. This just means that you’re going to spread the flour out on a baking sheet and bake it for a few minutes.

Also, I chose to add chocolate chips to this recipe, but you can add any mix-ins that you would like!

Edible Cookie Dough

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (F).
  2. Spread the flour in an even layer on a clean baking sheet. Bake the flour for 7 minutes. This should be enough time to kill off the bacteria, but if you want to be extra sure you use an instant-read thermometer (I used this one) Ito make sure the temperature of the flour is at least 170 degrees (F).
  3. Remove the flour from the oven and allow it to cool.
  4. In a medium bowl combine the softened butter and both types of sugar. Beat the mixture with a hand mixer (I used this one) until fully combined and fluffy.
  5. Add the vanilla and mix until fully combined.
  6. Add the flour and salt and mix until just combined.
  7. Mix in the milk. You may need to add more milk if your dough is on the dry side.
  8. Mix in the chopped chocolate chips. I chopped the chocolate so it was well dispersed in the dough and there weren’t any large chunks of chocolate. You can also use any other mix-in that you’d like.
