For Valentine’s Day this year, I am trying something a little different, and making edible cookie dough per this recipe here.
Here is the recipe for the base dough from the website:
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 350˚F/175˚C.
2. Evenly spread flour on a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes.
3. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, milk, and salt until combined evenly.
4. Refrigerate mix for 30 minutes and then separate into 4 sections.
I will be adding in chocolate chips to my liking as well so that there is more too them.
Notes and thoughts:
The first step is to bake the flour, and this is to kill any bacteria that may be in it. Most people don’t know that this is necessary, and this step is technically skippable-but I wouldn’t. Don’t take the risk. That’s part of making this 100% edible cookie dough.
When mixing everything together, I added the flour gradually, because it was a little lumpy after being baked, and I actually mixed everything else together beforehand while it was in the oven.
I added two cups of chocolate chips after it had cooled in the fridge (it’s ready when it’s nice and spongy), and then formed the shapes with an ice cream scoop. I let them sit again in the fridge before serving so that they would keep their shape better without crumbling.
In the end they tasted great and were a bit hit for Valentine’s day, and I’m really glad. I might try some of their other suggestions for flavours and add ins later or even come up with my own.

I would highly recommend making this it went over really well and it really was like cookie dough, but without the risk of serious food borne illness.
