Edible Cookie Dough ~ No Bake, Safe to Eat Raw

If you love eating raw cookie dough, you can eat this by the spoonful and have no worries about it being unsafe or making one of the kids sick. A satisfying treat to have on hand when you have sweet tooth cravings.

Ingredients Needed:

Ingredients for cookie dough

  • All Purpose Flour ~ Flour has been found to sometimes carry bacteria, so to make it safe, we are baking it for a few minutes so there’s no worries.
  • Butter ~ Use real butter, softened to room temperature.
  • Brown Sugar ~ Gives the cookie dough that classic flavor. 
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk ~ Adds sweetness without the gritty texture of white sugar.
  • Molasses ~ Adds just a little more caramel flavor to the dough. The flavor is just in the background but really boosts the flavor.
  • Vanilla Extract ~ Classic flavor enhancer for cookies.
  • Chocolate Chips ~ I used mini semisweet chocolate chips. Regular sized chips or chopped chunks would work too.

How to Make Cookie Dough:

flour on a parchment lined baking sheet

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle flour in an even layer. Bake for about 10 minutes or until flour reaches about 160°.

sifter of flour

  • The flour needs cooled before you make the cookie dough or it will melt the other ingredients. It also tends to clump while baking. Sift the flour to remove clumps and place in the freezer for about 15 minutes or cool at room temperature.

You can but it’s made to eat raw. Since there are no eggs or leavening agent, the cookies will not bake as normal chewy, fluffy cookies.
