Ingredients and Variations
Flour – We use all purpose flour in this recipe. Any heat treated (see notes) flour or even oat flour or heat treated cake mix can be used too!
Sugar – What would cookie dough be without it? Brown and white sugar give the best flavor.
Butter – Use real salted butter for that perfect cookie dough texture. This recipe will also work witha solid coconut oil if dairy is off the menu. Use real vanilla extract if you have it, since this isn’t baked you can taste the hint of vanilla.
Food Safety First
It’s not just eggs in cookie dough that can pose a health risk, raw flour can contain dangerous bacteria like E. Coli too.
It’s really easy to heat treat flour! Bake it on a baking sheet in the oven at 350°F for 5 minutes. Let the flour cool completely, so it doesn’t melt the butter when making this cookie dough recipe.
Flour can also be heat treated by placing it in the microwave for 30-second intervals until the flour reaches 165°F. Stir after each 30 seconds.
Edible Cookie Dough Add-Ins & Variations
Of course, chocolate chip cookie dough needs chocolate chips (either milk or dark chocolate chips will do)! But feel free to try peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, or caramel chips.
- We love chopped and toasted nuts like pecans.
- Try chopped pieces of raisin, cranberries, or even some toasted coconut or Rice Krispies for extra crunch!
- A sprinkle of cocoa powder is yummy too.
How to Make Edible Cookie Dough

Tips for a Great Snack
- The ratios in this cookie dough aren’t suitable for baking (but you can find our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe here).
- No baking soda is needed as these cookies do not need the help of a leavening agent to rise.
- Make sure the flour is completely cooled before adding it to the recipe so the butter doesn’t melt!
- Edible cookie dough will last a few weeks in the refrigerator as long as it’s kept in a zippered bag or sealed container.
