There’s nothing more fun than eating a spoonful of cookie dough. Now, with this edible sugar cookie dough, you can have as much as you want without any worries!
Normally, you cannot eat raw sugar cookie dough, but this edible version was made specifically to be eaten raw. We do two main things to make this sugar cookie dough edible.
- We eliminate the egg. Raw eggs are a huge factor as to why you shouldn’t be eating unbaked sugar cookie cookies. By taking them out and using something like cream to replace the egg, you get the same nice texture without the risk.
- We heat treat the flour. Believe it or not, but you can potentially get sick from eating raw flour. By heating the flour through, you eliminate the risk of getting sick from eating raw flour.
If you do both things, you can rest assured that it is perfectly safe to eat this edible sugar cookie dough.
We use all the primary ingredients (minus the egg, of course), that you would use to make a regular baked sugar cookie. We also take out any rising agents like baking powder simply because we don’t need them. The ingredients are as follows:
- Butter – This recipe works best with melted butter because it helps dissolve the sugar so you don’t end up with a grainy final product.
- Sugar – I recommend using granulated sugar for this cookie dough recipe. Some readers have said they had success using powdered sugar though!
- Flour – All-purpose flour is the best here, but you can use cake flour or bread flour as long as you heat treat them.
- Salt – Just a pinch of salt helps elevate the flavors. Typically, I use sea salt, but table salt will also work. Kosher salt might be used, but make sure the salt dissolves fully in the butter.
- Vanilla – Pure vanilla extract is essential here. I do not recommend anything else.
- Cream or milk – For a decadent treat, you want to use heavy or whipping cream. If you want something just a tad lighter you can use milk.
Always keep your dough in an airtight container. I usually put mine in an airtight freezer bag, but any airtight container will work,
- At room temperature, it will last up to 8 hours.
- In the refrigerator, it should last up to 1 week.
- In the freezer, it will last up to 1 month.
