Edible cookie dough is simple to make. It’s very similar to baked cookies. Start by beating butter and sugar together until fluffy, light, and creamy. Then add in dry ingredients like flour and mix until a dough forms. You can use a hand mixer or stand mixer. If you don’t have a mixer, you can make the dough by hand. The texture won’t be as fluffy, but it will still taste great.
Normally, the answer to this is no due to a small chance of contaminated flour and/or eggs, but thanks to our smart edible cookie dough recipe you can enjoy it without safety issues.
Based on our research, here’s what we have learned: There are two culprits that make regular raw cookie dough unsafe to eat: unpasteurized eggs and raw flour. In this recipe, we remove the eggs completely and heat treat the flour so that it is safer.
Research is still being done surrounding the safety of raw flour. There was a recall of flour in 2016. Since we are not flour safety experts, here’s what the US Department of Health and Human Services has to say about it. (No matter what recipe you follow, it’s always a good idea to check flour recalls.)
To be safe, in this recipe, we treat the flour so that it reaches a minimum of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. You might also find heat treated flour for sale online. We’re hoping more flour brands do this in the future, but for now, we did see that Page House sells heat-treated all-purpose wheat flour (search for it online).
Microwave it for a couple of minutes in a microwave-safe dish. Stir at least once during cooking. When it reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit throughout, use it in the edible cookie dough recipe.
