Simply Scrumptious Edible Cookie Dough
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar, tightly packed
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- baking sheet with rimmed edge
- silicone baking mat (optional)
- instant-read thermometer
- medium bowl
- stand mixer with paddle attachment
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or leave the sheet bare.
Spread the flour onto the baking sheet in an even layer. Place the baking sheet in the oven and toast the flour for 5 minutes.
Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven. Using an instant-read thermometer, check the temperature of the flour. When the thermometer reads 160 degrees, the flour is done toasting. Set it aside in a medium bowl and allow it to come to room temperature.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and salt.
Add the milk and vanilla extract. Next, gradually mix in the cooled flour until a soft dough forms.
Blend in the chocolate chips. Enjoy!

Who has eaten raw cookie dough from the bowl and hasn’t lived to tell the tale of this forbidden fruit? Honestly, I’m not sure. But the word on the street is that it’s a big no-no to eat raw dough. So what’s the scoop? If the dough is contaminated with salmonella or E. coli, it could wreak havoc on your body. Seriously, put your delicious traditional chocolate chip cookie dough down, and swap it for something safer, like our edible cookie dough.
What’s Wrong With Raw Cookie Dough?
The raw flour in cookie dough could be harmful as well. Flour is obtained from a grain that is not treated to kill bacteria. What happens in the grain field does not stay in the grain field when it comes to animal waste. The flour that is then harvested and milled may contain dangerous bacteria such as E. coli. Unfortunately, there are no steps taken during processing to kill the bacteria, so it’s up to the consumer to take proper precautions when preparing food containing flour. This is why we toast our flour to 160 degrees in our edible cookie dough recipe.
