This Edible Cookie Dough recipe is an eggless and delicious treat you can make in just 10 minutes! Made with butter, sugar, flour, salt, and chocolate chips!
While cookie dough has likely been enjoyed since the first batch of cookies was made, it’s been reimagined into a trendy dessert that’s currently all the rage!
The idea of eating a bowl of Edible Cookie Dough (as you would a bowl of ice cream) is relatively new, yet the taste of ooey, gooey, chocolate-studded batter is nostalgic for those of us with a sweet tooth.
This recipe for eggless Edible Cookie Dough is the best of both worlds: a classic flavor that’s been reimagined into a dessert on its own!
What Is Edible Cookie Dough and Is It Safe?
Yes, this raw cookie dough recipe is completely safe to eat since it omits the eggs and calls for heat-treating the flour in the oven to eliminate any bacteria first.
Both children and grown-ups alike can enjoy this safe-to-eat, eggless cookie dough. It’d be a blast to make with your kids, especially if boredom strikes.
Plus, an eggless recipe means no worrying about broken shells or contamination concerns when little hands are involved.
How to Bake Flour for Edible Cookie Dough:
Spread the flour out on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 5 to 6 minutes, this should get the flour to a temperature of 160 degrees F and kill any bacteria.
I don’t think anyone will argue when I say that it’s always a good time to savor a few spoonfuls of cookie dough. Summer or winter, day or night, you’ll find yourself making this easy and crave-worthy Edible Cookie Dough over and over again!
What Is Edible Cookie Dough Made Of?
Dense and chewy, Edible Cookie Dough is made extra rich with brown and white sugar, melted butter, vanilla, and a splash of heavy cream. Plus it’s loaded with decadent chocolate chips, and I like to use the miniature ones so that they fill every single bite.
There’s only one reason to turn the oven on for Edible Cookie Dough, and that’s to briefly heat the flour to 160 degrees F, which kills any bacteria.
But impatient foodies will love that there’s no bake time to wait for, and you’ll be indulging in this delicious dessert in 5 minutes flat. (This is especially convenient if your cravings hit you late at night!)
How Do You Make Edible Cookie Dough?
- Cook the flour on a large baking sheet.
- Meanwhile, cream the unsalted butter, light brown sugar, and granulated sugar together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
- Next, mix in the flour, heavy cream, and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
- Then, fold in the mini chocolate chips (and any other add-ins) with a rubber spatula.
How Long Is Edible Cookie Dough Good For?
When covered and stored in the fridge this recipe is good for 3 to 5 days after making.
Can You Freeze Edible Cookie Dough?
Yes, you can! Once prepared, store it in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 3 months! Remove from the freezer a few hours before consuming for best texture.
Can I Bake Edible Cookie Dough?
I mean you can, there’s nothing stopping you, but it won’t be quite right because you’re missing eggs which are a very important element in a traditional baked cookie. I would recommend making my Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe instead! You won’t regret it!
Some of us have fond childhood memories of baking cookies with our parents or grandparents, scraping the mixing bowl to sneak a taste of that pre-baked goodness.
I remember mixing up chocolate chip cookie dough in my grandmother’s kitchen and stealing a bite, followed by her warnings not to eat raw cookie dough or else I’d get a stomach ache.
But that never stopped me from digging into the bowl for more!
As adults, we know why we shouldn’t eat raw dough, and most of us would rather not pay the price of getting sick. That’s why everyone should have an easy, eggless recipe on hand to (safely) conquer all those cookie dough cravings!
It also makes a fun gift when packaged up in these containers with stickers and ribbons for neighbor and teacher gifts!

- Use Browned Butter for a rich and nutty flavor.

- Add toffee bits, butterscotch chips, or a few tablespoons of peanut butter for a salty twist.
