Ingredients

Instructions

  • Spread the flour out on a cookie sheet and bake at 350°F for 5 to 6 minutes, this should get the flour to a temperature of 160°F and kill any bacteria.
    2 cups all-purpose flour
  • In a large bowl with a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
    3/4 cup unsalted butter,, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Add the heavy cream, vanilla, and almond extracts and mix until combined. 
    3 tablespoons heavy cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the cooled heat-treated flour and salt, then add it to the wet ingredients in two separate additions. Mix until fully combined. 
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fold in the sprinkles and enjoy immediately or store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
    3/4 cup sprinkles

Notes

  • This recipe makes around 4 cups of edible cookie dough and each serving is about 1/4 cup.
  • Why Do I Need To Bake The Flour? Baking the flour heats it to a high enough temperature to kill any bacteria that may be lurking in it. This simple step ensures the edible cookie dough is safe to eat!
  • How Should I Store This Sugar Cookie Dough? Store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to one week.
  • Can I Make This Ahead And Freeze It To Enjoy It At A Later Date? Yes, once it’s been made you can place it in an airtight container. Or even a Ziploc back with the excess air squeezed out of it. Then you can store it in the freezer for up to 6 months. When you’re ready to enjoy it just thaw it overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Is There Another Way To Heat Treat The Flour? You can also heat treat the flour right in the microwave! Simply place the flour in a microwave-safe bowl and then microwave it for five 15-second intervals. Stir between each interval. Once the temperature of the heated flour has reached 160 Degrees F it’s safe to use in this recipe. To check the temperature of the flour just use a kitchen thermometer.
