How to make raw cookie dough safe to eat?
The answer is pretty simple, we are not using raw eggs and we are heat treating our flour. I popped it in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl and that did the trick to keeping any foodborne illness away.
Raw flour can have E. coli (that’s why we bake it), and raw eggs can have salmonella (and that’s why we don’t use eggs)

Do I have to bake the flour for my edible cookie dough?
Yes, baking the flour is what will make this cookie dough safe to eat. Raw flour is not supposed to eaten (same with eggs), but who are we kidding, we all had some raw cake batter, brownie batter, and cookie dough.
But for safety reasons and just to be extra safe, bake or microwave your cake before measuring your flour for this recipe!
Bake the flour at 350F for 5 minutes before letting it cool then using it in your edible cookie dough recipe is a must. This technique will eliminate any harmful bacteria that could be in the flour.
I don’t have an oven, can I bake the flour in the microwave?
Yes you can 🙂 The rule of thumb is to microwave your flour at the highest setting until it reaches 165F, I do understand that not everyone has a thermometer so what you can do is microwave your flour for 1 minute and 15 seconds at the highest setting, making sure to stir after every 15-second intervals (so 5 times), let it cool, then use it in this recipe!
Can you bake edible cookie dough?
Unfortunately, this edible cookie dough is not made to be baked. When making edible cookie dough we don’t use eggs, leavening agents, or the right ratios of ingredients for the cookies to be baked. So if you try baking this you will end up with a flat, crispy cookie.
If you are really craving cookies, try these small batch chocolate chip cookies. They’re soft and chewy and we make them at least a few times a month!
Can I add this cookie dough to ice cream?
Absolutely! You can make this cookie dough, roll it into mini logs, wrap it with plastic wrap and freeze it. Once it’s solid, slice little rounds using a sharp knife and add it to whatever ice cream flavor you want!
Alternatively, you can make little balls of cookie dough and freeze them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and add them to your ice cream.
I love adding this cookie dough to the Tillamook chocolate peanut butter ice cream! So good!
