Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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. 

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