Cookie Dough for Eating Unbaked



Tollhouse recipe tweaked. I love cookie dough bits in ice cream plus I have very fond memories of eating cookie dough with a spoon out of a tub once as a teen. Here is my answer to the raw egg in regular cookie dough (which poses a very very unlikely, but potentially life threatening risk if you happen to be unlucky.) Some cookie dough dips use cream cheese, but they don't have the same consistency and taste as real cookie dough. This is the real deal...heaven on your spoon...fear free for the paranoid! Just don't try baking this; no egg or baking soda will likely make for funny results.

How to Make Cookie Dough for Eating Unbaked


  1. Cream butter & sugars. Mix in salt and vanilla.
  2. (This step should help kill any germs in the flour)
    Dry toast your flour/ oat flour in a skillet over medium high heat. Don't let it burn. Stir constantly, and remove from heat once it starts to brown. I like the extra depth of flavor toasting gives.

    *My favorite is half oat flour, and half regular flour. I've done all oat flour with coconut oil replacing the butter, and their consistency wasn't quite as good, a little harder and more crumbly...but not bad! They tasted a bit like Mounds. All regular flour should work just fine, too.
  3. Mix in the flour and water into the creamed mixture. Add chocolate chips (1 cup was plenty for me.)
    Place in freezer to cool, while you lick off the beaters! ;)
  4. ** Softened coconut oil is a delicious replacement for the butter! It tastes so good, I'm tempted to make shortbread out of it, without the chocolate...but with the chocolate it tastes like Mounds candy bar!

    This cookie dough is rich, and I am finding I like to savor it in small little pinches...I haven't had the equivalent of a whole cookie yet, but I have the satisfying feeling like I've indulged! It reminds me of eating fudge...a little goes a long way. Unless, of coarse, you are staying up late watching a movie in fuzzy pajamas with a tub full and a big spoon! ;)

    Of course you could find more dignified, and creative, cute ways to serve it, like freezing it in cute star shaped ice cube molds, or rolling into balls or slicing into cubes (like fudge), or as a dip with animal or graham crackers, I suppose! Or as an ice-cream topping/ mix-in. Yummm!
