Sneaking in cookie dough as kids has always been our favorite part of making cookies; as adults, we recognize that eating homemade cookie dough can come with the risks associated with consuming raw eggs and flour. Luckily for you – and me – our edible cookie dough is free of any harmful ingredients (no salmonella found). You don’t have to worry about a stomach ache – or worse – and can fully focus on enjoying the delicious food. This is the ultimate addition to a Friday night movie at home, or as a fun slumber party snack for the kids!

We’ve all heard it: “Don’t eat raw cookie dough, it’ll make you sick!” While that’s the last thing we wanted to hear as kids, our parents sure had a point. Eating raw eggs and uncooked flour can give you a stomachache or worse. You can make edible cookie dough a few different ways. Ditch the eggs completely, then pre-bake the flour. Eggs are often cited as the culprit for an upset stomach, but raw flour is another ingredient that can contribute to foodborne illness.

Flour question:

You’ve probably never suspected that uncooked flour could contain bacteria, but it does. You should not eat raw flour. When raw grains are processed into flour in supermarkets, harmful bacteria are still present. The only way to get rid of it is to bake it – a technique called “heat treating”. This is an important step in making this no-bake cookie dough recipe.

Heat Treated Flour Instructions:

The best way to make flour safe to eat is to heat treat it first. This is exactly what it sounds like: you have to heat/cook the flour before adding it to your no-bake cookie dough recipe. Simply flour a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350°F for about 10 minutes, or until it reaches 165°F.

Freezing Instructions:

Want to make a double batch of edible cookie dough to eat later? no problem! You can freeze this recipe for up to 3 months. Store it in an airtight freezer bag. When you’re ready to eat it, let it defrost in the fridge overnight before eating.

Storage Instructions:

You can store any leftover homemade cookie dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
