Edible Cookie Dough

Best Edible Cookie Dough Recipe!

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.

The great thing about these recipes are 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.

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!

Here’s the flavors you can choose from:

  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough
  • Funfetti Sugar Cookie Dough

Watch Us Make All Three!

Edible Cookie Dough 3 Flavors

Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  • All-purpose flour: heat treated to kill bacteria (as noted in recipe below)
  • Granulated sugar and brown sugar: the combination of the two gives it that classic flavor.
  • Unsalted butter: salted butter will work as well just add a pinch of salt if using salted.
  • Salt: this will bring out the flavors of the cookie dough.
  • Vanilla extract: use real vanilla extract for the best flavor.
  • Milk: since there’s no eggs milk is added so cookie dough isn’t dry.
  • Mini or regular chocolate chips: prefer the mini especially once cold.

For Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough you’ll also 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 Cookie Dough that’s Edible – Safe to Eat?

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.

Heat treat the flour: 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).

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.

How Long Does Cookie Dough Last in the Fridge?

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

Can I Freeze It?

Yes. You can freeze this cookie dough up to 2 months.

Can I Add it to Ice Cream?

Yes. Don’t add much milk so you can shape the dough, then the easiest method would be to shape into a couple of small logs, freeze a few hours in parchment paper then cut into small rounds.

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 its 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.
