Licking the spoon is universally one of the best parts of baking. But how do you make sure that you can enjoy the sweet, gooey delicious dough without risking illness from raw ingredients?
Our simple solution: just make edible cookie dough! As much as I love warm, freshly-baked cookies, cookie dough is one of my favorite ways to eat this beloved dessert. It’s perfect on its own or added to ice cream, and it’s a nice treat for people who may not have the convenience of an oven on hand.
Edible Cookie Dough Ingredients
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 3/4 cup of butter
- 1 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons of milk (add more if needed)
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
Edible Cookie Dough Recipe
- First, heat-treat your flour by pouring it into a microwave-safe bowl and microwaving it on high for about 1 minute.*
*Heat-treating flour is incredibly important as consuming raw flour can cause stomach issues. Your flour is safe to eat once it reaches an internal temperature of about 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Combine the brown sugar and butter in a large bowl and mix until creamy.
- Add in vanilla and salt and mix well.
- Mix in the heat-treated flour, incorporating well. The dough should look a little crumbly.
- Mix in the milk, adding more as necessary to reach the desired consistency.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
*Note: If the dough seems a little runny or doesn’t seem to be as set as you’d like, let it sit in the refrigerator for half an hour to allow it time to stiffen into the traditional cookie dough texture.
We hope you and your family enjoy this yummy edible cookie dough recipe. And don’t forget: it’s okay to lick the spoon!
