Edible Cookie Dough

Who doesn’t love cookie dough?!? I think I may like cookie dough as much as I like actual cookies. I have to be honest though, I am terrified of getting sick from eating raw eggs and raw flour so I literally never ever sneak a bite of cookie dough prior to baking cookies. (I know, I’m probably in the minority here ha)

That’s what makes this recipe so great! I use heat treated flour and no eggs, so this cookie dough is as safe as it is delicious! And even better, this recipe makes the perfect amount for one serving and whips up quickly. Making it a perfect late night treat!

Ingredients for Edible Cookie Dough

  • Softened Butter- Make sure your butter is room temperature so that it mixes well with the sugars.
  • Granulated Sugar– for sweetness, obviously.
  • Brown Sugar- Brown sugar is what gives the cookie dough the perfect caramely cookie flavor.
  • Milk– we will use a touch of milk to compensate for the liquid we are losing by not including eggs in the dough.
  • Vanilla– this really brings the cookie dough together.
  • Flour- Just regular old All Purpose flour will do the trick.
  • Salt
  • Mini Chocolate Chips- I like the mini’s in this recipe. They ensure that you get even amounts of chocolate in every bite, but feel free to use your favorite chocolate chips.

How to Make Edible Cookie Dough for One

You want to start this recipe by heat treating the flour. Pour the flour into a bowl and pop it into the microwave for 30 seconds.

Add the softened butter and sugars to a separate bowl and mix with a fork until it is light and fluffy. Stir in the milk and vanilla and continue to combine.

Add the flour and a pinch of salt and fold until well combined.

Fold in the chocolate chips.

Sit back, relax and ENJOY!

How to Store Leftover Cookie Dough

Store any leftover cookie dough in the fridge. Just pull it out of the fridge 5-10 minutes before eating to allow it to get soft again.

Can the cookie dough be baked?

No, no, no. (I know some will still be tempted to try, but trust me.) This recipe has zero leavening agents which means it will not bake, it will spread and be a mess.

    This is such a good recipe!!! I’ve tried a couple of edible cookie dough and this is by far the best! It has a good texture and is really tasty!

    I’ve tried a few different edible cookie dough recipes and this one is the best! My microwave mysteriously stopped working tonight so instead of microwaving flour. I used 1/4 cup of Almond flour and, for fun, did the extra Tbsp of Flax meal. It still tastes amazing!
