The best part about baking cookies is eating the raw cookie dough. But, tempting as it may be, concerns about getting sick from the raw eggs or uncooked ingredients can put a damper on the experience. Eliminate the fear of getting ill from indulging in a couple of bites of raw cookie dough by following this edible cookie dough recipe.

Eliminating eggs and baking the flour will ensure the dough is 100 percent safe to eat without compromising flavor. Whip up the recipe, savor a few bites, then freeze the cookie dough to bake later. (Your oven will love the much-deserved respite, too!)


  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • cup unsalted butter, room temperature 

  • cup brown sugar

  • 3 tabelspoons granulated sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon whole milk

  • ¼ cup chocolate chips or sprinkles


  1. Spread the flour onto a baking sheet in an even layer and toast in a 350°F oven for 5 to 7 minutes, making sure it does not burn. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. This step will kill any bacteria in the flour, making it safe to consume raw.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar, then mix until light and fluffy. Add salt, vanilla, and milk. Mix well until fully incorporated.

  3. Add cooled flour and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips or substitute with other toppings like sprinkles, shredded coconut, or chopped nuts.
