Chocolate chip cookies are one of the absolute best sweet treats out there. If you love to sneak some of the regular cookie dough while baking, but are nervous about the small chance of it having bacteria in it, then this recipe is for you! It's free of raw eggs and flour so there's no chance of e. coli ending up in your cookie dough. My favorite way to eat this cookie dough is simply with just a spoon from the bowl, but you can even make some of the cookie dough into cookie dough bites and add it to vanilla ice cream to make the best ice cream flavor!

Ingredients for Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:
- Flour- all purpose flour is heat treated to kill any bacteria
- Sugar– mostly light brown sugar is used, but some granulated sugar is used as well
- Unsalted Butter – make sure it is softened at room temperature
- Vanilla– I recommend vanilla bean paste for the best flavor, but vanilla extract works just fine too
- Salt– helps to bring out the flavor and balance the sweetness in the cookie dough
- Chocolate Chips- semi sweet, dark chocolate, or milk chocolate chips all work just fine! I prefer mini semi-sweet
- Milk– replaces the liquid from the eggs in the edible cookie dough
Step by Step Instructions
Please see the recipe card below for the complete measurements!
STEP ONE: Heat treat flour to kill any harmful bacteria in it. Sprinkle the flour on a small, parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake the flour and then let it cool.
STEP TWO: Add the butter, brown sugar and granulated white sugar to a small bowl. Cream it together with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until it's light and fluffy. Then mix in the vanilla.
STEP THREE: Add in the flour and salt and combine. (You can also add a little bit of baking soda, just a pinch, to help it taste like the real thing even more!) Then mix in the milk a little at a time just until the dough pulls together.
STEP FOUR: Add in the chocolate chips and combine with a small rubber spatula.
How do I store edible cookie dough? If you don't finish your cookie dough in one sitting, store left overs in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Let it come to room temperature before eating for the best taste.
Can I freeze the cookie dough? Yes! Freeze it in an airtight container for up to a month.
