  • Add the flour to a small bowl and microwave for FIVE 15-second intervals, stirring between each one to heat treat the flour. The flour should reach a temperature of at least 160°F. Allow the flour to cool for 5 minutes after the last round.
  • In a medium bowl, cream together the peanut butter, butter, light brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the heavy cream, vanilla, and salt until smooth.
  • Beat in the cooled flour until fully combined.
  • Use a rubber spatula to fold in mix-ins such as chocolate chips or peanut butter candies and serve.


  • This recipe yields about 2 1/2 cups of edible dough and each serving is about 1/4 cup.
  • You can enjoy this edible cookie dough for 4 to 5 days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Remove and let thaw in the refrigerator for several hours before enjoying for best texture.
  • I wouldn’t recommend baking this dough. If you’re craving actual peanut butter cookies then try my classic Peanut Butter Cookies recipe or my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.
  • Another easy method for heat-treating the flour is spreading the flour out on a rimmed baking sheet and baking at 350 degrees F for 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Mix-In Ideas
    • Chocolate Chips – This is a great one because just about everyone always has these in their pantry. I like to use minis but regular will do.
    • Peanut Butter Chips – Want even more peanut butter flavor? Add in a handful of peanut butter chips.
    • Cookies – Want some extra crunch in your cookie dough? Try mixing in some chopped chocolate or peanut butter sandwich cookies.
    • Candy – Most of us have a favorite peanut butter candy, so feel free to mix that in too. If needed, chop it into bite-sized pieces.
