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.

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?).

Edible Cookie Dough 3 Flavors

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.

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!

Edible Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough

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.

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.

  • Dawn: Has anyone tried usng this in homemade cookie dough ice cream? My daughter asked me to make that flavor next. I usually just do vanilla, chocolate, or peppermint. December 19, 2018 at 2:33pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I haven’t tried it in ice cream but it should work out great! I’d wait to mix it (in in little bits) until the end of the ice cream processing and you might not need as much milk in the dough. I need make some too, I’ve been meaning to break out my ice cream maker it’s been way too long. I used to use it 3 times a month and this year it’s been hardly at all.

  • Alisha: This recipe looked amazing but alas, there were no measurements for the regular cookie dough recipe. I thought maybe just use the dutch cocoa one and substitute the cocoa for brown sugar but most recipes for chocolate chip cookies use more brown sugar then granulated. Not sure. Looks tasty though.
