Do you love to eat cookie dough straight from the package? You are going to love this safe edible cookie dough recipe. Plus how to make enough for one person! For more fun foodies see my Desserts page.
This recipe has been all the rage around here for the last few weeks. A gourmet food company finally came out with an edible cookie dough version of America’s favorite chocolate chip cookie dough that you can safely eat. My kids went nuts for it!
When this product made its way to the grocery stores here in Charlotte, we literally checked every few days for the last few weeks to find some left in stock! Thinking it may be a while until we found it, we decided to try to make our own edible cookie dough.
I bought all the ingredients for the recipe and to my surprise, my husband came home that day with a jar of edible cookie dough Harris Teeter. That allowed me to make the homemade version and compare it to the gourmet version.
The verdict is.. they are equally dead-on the same in taste. So instead of spending a whopping $7.99 on a jar, we can now make it at home for a fraction of the cost.
Here is my version of the Edible Cookie Dough Recipe I used. I doubled this recipe because the original only made three ice cream scoops worth and we are big dough eater’s and I knew we would need more next time.
Is this Safe Edible Cookie Dough?
In the last couple of years there have been some findings by the FDA that raw baking flour could possibly contain the E. coli bacteria and also multiple flour recalls by General Mills have raised some concerns with consuming raw flour.
BOTTOM LINE: you should not eat raw flour that requires baking. I have updated this recipe with a way to toast the flour on a baking sheet before you make the dough so it kills any harmful bacteria. You can read all about it on the Cooking Light website. Another alternative would be to use coconut flour. But with any product, please research your brand of flour to make sure it is safe to consume.
