IS COOKIE DOUGH SAFE TO EAT?

I’ll be honest, I taste raw cookie dough all the time. I’m not too squeamish about it and so far I’ve been lucky and have never gotten sick.

But the truth is, it’s risky. There are two things you need to watch out for: raw eggs and raw flour.

There is a small chance (about 0.012%) that raw eggs could be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria, so if you are very young, very old, pregnant, or if your immune system is just not at its best, you should probably avoid eating raw eggs, just to be safe.

And raw flour could also be contaminated with bacteria such as E coli.

So, if you want to enjoy eating cookie dough without any fear, this is the recipe for you! It’s made with no eggs and no raw flour. You can indulge all you want, because it’s perfectly safe to eat.

HOW TO MAKE EDIBLE COOKIE DOUGH

This edible cookie dough recipe is really easy to make, and it only takes about 10 minutes!

Start by spreading the flour onto a baking sheet. Bake it in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes, to kill any harmful bacteria.

While that’s going, cream the butter, sugars, and salt together until fluffy. This takes about 5 minutes with the mixer on medium-high speed.

Add in the milk and vanilla, stirring until smooth.

Once the flour has cooled a bit, stir that in.

Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. And you are good to go! Start snacking!

SHOULD EDIBLE COOKIE DOUGH BE REFRIGERATED?

If you don’t finish eating the whole batch of edible cookie dough in one sitting, it’s probably a good idea to keep it refrigerated, just because of all the dairy it contains.

As it chills, it becomes quite stiff. You can gently rewarm it (about 10 seconds in the microwave), just let it sit at room temperature for 15 minutes or so, or scoop it out of the container as is and enjoy. It will pretty much melt in your mouth anyway!
