How to Make Edible Cookie Dough
All you need to be enjoying this cookie dough is 7 easy ingredients that are generally staples in most peoples kitchen. So you ready to devour this deliciousness?
Cream together butter, sugars, vanilla extract, salt. Fold in the flour and milk and then stir in the chocolate chips! It really is THAT EASY. Check out our recipe video below to see for yourself.
There are more concerns than just the raw eggs with raw cookie dough. There is also a link to risk with no heated flour. So here is how we combat that issue as well.
- Preheat oven to about 325 degrees F
- Take your measured out flour and lay it out on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes.
- Allow the flour to fully cool before using in the recipe.
TIP: if you place on top of parchment paper you can easily pick up the parchment paper at the end and pour into the bowl that way
This should kill off any lingering bacteria in the raw flour that could potentially make you sick.

Change up your cookie dough flavor to fit whatever combo you are craving
- Edible Sugar Cookie Dough – Omit the chocolate chips and add an additional 1/2 cup of sugar to the recipe.
- Birthday Edible Cookie Dough – Add some festive sprinkles to the mix for a birthday celebration. It makes me think of sprinkles on ice cream.. you can’t go wrong with it.
- S’more Cookie Dough – Add some marshmallows and graham crackers to the recipe and we are in business.
- Chocolate Mint Cookie Dough – Add 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, additional 2 Tablespoons of milk AND a couple drops of peppermint extract. I actually still remember years ago I bought a tub Double Chocolate Mint Cookie Dough from a neighbor as part of a fundraiser.. I didn’t ever bake a single cookie. Ate the entire tub.
