What’s the big deal about cookie dough, right? Wrong!! Edible cookie Dough is the safe way to eat cookie dough and it’s a sure thing to say, that it’s one of the best things on the planet! Creamy, delicious, and filled with chunks of chocolate or your favorite add-ins.

Cookie Dough Emergencies

Make for treats or keep in a jar in the fridge for cookie dough emergencies. What? You do not have cookie dough emergencies!? I do, sometimes I really make a batch of cookies just so I can enjoy a little bit of cookie dough.

Chocolate Chip Cookies are an all-American cookie, but the dough, yes we have taken Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to new levels! We eat it plain, put it in our ice cream, shakes, truffles, cake pops and more. If you haven’t tried it, now is the time to whip up a batch!

How to heat treat flour

If you are really worried about bacteria, then heat treat your flour first.

Evenly spread several cups of all-purpose flour onto a half sheet pan (for easier clean up, line with parchment paper) and bake in 350° oven for about 7 minutes. Cool completely and store in airtight container.

TIP | I keep all my flours in fridge or freezer, they stay fresher longer and are less prone to bacteria, so I don’t heat treat.

In a mixing bowl, using either a hand held mixer or stand mixer, add your softened butter, brown sugar, all natural cane sugar and salt; with mixer on medium-high whip until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl once or twice.

Keep cookie dough refrigerated — it will harden in the fridge, simply remove and allow to come to room temperature if soft dough is desired.

How Can I serve Cookie Dough

  • Using a small or medium scoop, scoop into cookie sized bites or keep in a jar for scooping.
  • A fun way to serve this to scoop cookie dough into small cups, rolling the tops in your favorite seasonal sprinkle for a festive touch. Add a small spoon and serve for a party treat or as mini-desserts
  • Scoop a small amount and serve on ice cream cone.
  • Roll into cake pop shape, dipping in your favorite chocolate coating.

  1. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Since raw cookie dough is the best part of baking cookies, now I can eat it without having to dodge salmonella! SCORE!

  2. Cold weather + soccer practice canceled (yay!) = opportunity to make this yummy treat. I doubled the recipe and used half oat flour because we love the nuttier flavor. Hard to not eat this by the spoonful directly out of the mixer!!

  3. 5 stars
    Yum! What a sweet treat! I appreciate the tips to make safe, edible cookie dough. The teens in my life are going to love this! (Oh, who am I kidding? I’ll probably eat most of it!) Thank you, Kathleen!
