Edible Cookie Dough {3 Delicious Flavors}

Cookie Dough!! Who could resist a spoonful of this? It’s just sweet, nostalgic comfort food and perfect in every way. And no risk of food born illnesses here, it’s made with heat treated flour and no eggs so you can scoop away without all the worry.

Edible Cookie Dough

Forget every other dessert I’ve ever recommend you make because this is the only one that really matters. Okay I’m kidding but honestly cookie dough is one of the best treats ever, right?

I’ve always had to sneak a taste of every batch of cookies before baking but this way is definitely the safer option.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Since I love cookie dough so much I’ve decided to share THREE incredibly delicious flavors that will tempt everyone and anyone, trust me no one can resist young and old alike.

There’s the classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough and Funfetti Sugar Cookie Dough. Then maybe down the road who knows maybe I’ll add more flavors here (I’m thinking peanut butter, oatmeal and snickerdoodle deserve a place here, don’t you?).

Ingredients for Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  • All-purpose flour, heat treated to kill bacteria (as noted in recipe below)
  • Granulated sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Unsalted butter (or salted, just add a pinch of salt if using salted)
  • Salt
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk
  • Mini or regular chocolate chips (I prefer the mini especially once cold)

For Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough you’ll need cocoa powder, and I like to use dark chocolate chunks instead of the chocolate chips but chocolate chips are fine too. No brown sugar is needed.

For the Funfetti Sugar Cookie Dough you’ll also need almond extract, and sprinkles. No brown sugar is needed.

How to Make Safe to Eat Edible Cookie Dough

Because of the possibility of e-coli being found in flour it’s now a good idea to heat it in the oven to kill off any possible bacteria before consuming for things like cookie dough. And of course let’s skip the eggs.

First Heat the Flour so it’s Safe to Eat

So you’ll preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread 3 cups of flour out onto a rimmed 18 by 13-inch baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 7 minutes, or until flour temperature registers 160 degrees on an instant read thermometer. Let cool completely then transfer to an airtight container.

I’ll be honest this step is a little messy, I like to use a metal spatula and scrap to one corner and pour into a resealable bag. Then measure out what you need from there (using the scoop and level method).

Next Cream Butters, Sugars and Salt

Add butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar to a mixing bowl then sprinkle in salt . Using an electric hand mixer whip mixture until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Add in Milk and Vanilla

Then add in milk and vanilla and mix until well blended.

Blend in the Flour

Next add in all of the flour and mix just until combined.

Last Don’t Forget the Chocolate

Add the chocolate chips then fold with a rubber spatula to incorporate.

Enjoy!

Serve dough right away or chill in refrigerator in an airtight container up to one week.

An Easy Recipe for a Novice Baker

The great thing about this recipe is that just about anyone could make it. No baking skills required! Sure cooking the flour adds an annoying step but it’s worth the peace of mind especially when you are serving it to someone else.

What Would Be Your Favorite Flavor?

So I’m torn between all three flavors in picking a favorite. I thought for sure chocolate chip cookie dough would be the winner, then I made the chocolate version and was smitten after one bite (hello brownie batter flavor!).

Then next came along the funffeti sugar cookie dough and I felt like I was eating a slice of birthday cake in cookie dough form (hello best of both worlds). I mean how could be pick a favorite here?

Try them them all and let me know your favorite!

I’m not sure if the way I’ve written it up in the notes of the recipe (below) is confusing so I though I better just throw the fully written out recipe here too.

Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough

2/3 cup (92g) all-purpose flour, heat treated to kill bacteria (see notes in recipe box below)
1/3 cup (32g) dutch process cocoa powder
1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp milk, then more as needed
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 oz (1/3 cup) dark chocolate, chopped into small bits

Instructions
Add butter and granulated sugar to a medium mixing bowl, sprinkle salt evenly over.
Using an electric hand mixer whip together until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Mix in 1 1/2 Tbsp milk and the vanilla extract then blend in flour and cocoa powder, while adding milk 1/2 Tbsp at a time to thin if needed.
Using a rubber spatula fold in chocolate bits. Store cookie dough in refrigerator.

Funfetti Sugar Cookie Dough

1 cup (136g) all-purpose flour, heat treated to kill bacteria (see notes in recipe box below)
1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup (136g) granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp milk, then more as needed
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

I Don’t Have an Electric Mixer, Can I Mix This by Hand?

If you don’t own an electric hand mixer or stand mixer yes you could still make this by hand. I would probably go with nearly melted butter though to make mixing easier (therefor skipping getting to the pale and fluffy stage) and use a wooden spoon to mix.

Can I Bake This Cookie Dough?

Please don’t try to bake this cookie dough. With it’s lack of egg and leavening (baking soda/baking powder) the cookies would spread and be flat, and you wouldn’t end with a soft and chewy cookie.
