Who says cookie dough is only meant to be baked? Edible Cookie Dough has offers a delightful twist to the traditional cookie experience. With its mouthwatering flavors and simple preparation, edible cookie dough has become a favorite treat for both kids and adults alike.
Prep: 10 minutes
Total: 10 minutes
Servings: 12 1/4 cup servings

Ingredients 

  • ½ cup salted butter,, softened
  • cup brown sugar
  • cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour,, heat treated
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chip

Instructions 

  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars using an electric hand mixer. Mix the ingredients on a medium-high speed until they are completely combined (about 2 minutes).
  • Add the milk and vanilla extract. Use the hand mixer on a medium speed for 1 minute to incorporate the wet ingredients.
  • Whisk in the flour until no dry pockets remain in the cookie dough.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • To heat treat your flour, simply cook for five minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow your flour to cool before using it. I normally just put it in a little bread pan, spread it out a bit, and bake it it!
  • If you only have unsalted butter, you can add ¼ teaspoon of salt when adding the flour to the cookie dough.
  • For a richer chocolate flavor, use dark chocolate chips. Likewise, you can use milk chocolate chips for a sweeter flavor.
  • I like to use an ice cream scoop to serve this ice cream, but you can also eat it straight from the mixing bowl!
  • You can store this cookie dough in the fridge covered with plastic wrap for up to five days.
