Safe-to-Eat Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Raven Higheagle


It's Memorial Day Weekend and I'm sick with a cold. So what better way to spend the weekend by creating recipes. I decided that I had a need for safe to eat cookie dough for other recipes. So this weekend I made not one, but three kinds of cookie dough! Not only that, but they’re all eggless and therefore actually safe to eat*!

    butter, softened
  • 3/4 c
    light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 c
    all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp
    salt (a few people have found this to be too much; if you want, just add a pinch and increase to taste. i add the full 1/2 teaspoon and enjoy it!)
  • 1 Tbsp
    pure vanilla extract (again, you might want to add this a teaspoon at a time to taste. i add the full tablespoon and enjoy it!)

How to Make Safe-to-Eat Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough


  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
  2. Stir in the flour, salt, vanilla and chocolate chips.
  3. Add water one tablespoon at a time (stirring between each) until the dough reaches cookie dough consistency.
  4. *NOTE:
    Scientisty types have also found that raw flour — just like produce — can carry E.coli if it’s been contaminated with it. This article suggests that the risk is even smaller than the tiny risk of getting Salmonella from eating cookie dough with raw eggs, but it’s still there and I wanted you to know about it. At least eggless cookie dough is safer — and no reason to waste the eggs when you just want to eat it with a spoon, right?!
