Edible Easter Cookie Dough!

  • Why buy raw cookie dough when it’s so easy to make in minutes? The trick is baking the flour before adding it to the recipe, making it a safe binder for the rest of the ingredients.
  • Make it a party and let everyone mix in their favorite add-ins to their own bowl of dough! Or double up the batch without the chopped mini eggs and save one for future snacks!
  • Scoop edible cookie dough into cake or waffle cones and chill in advance for a fun, portable, party treat with no bowls or spoons!

What’s in Edible Cookie Dough?

DOUGH: Similar to regular cookie dough, but without eggs and a leavening agent like baking powder or soda, the key to safe, edible cookie dough is heat-treating the flour. Baking the flour kills any potential bacteria so it’s not harmful to eat raw. Simply add butter, white and brown sugar, and vanilla to the flour. Then mix, and enjoy.

ADD-INS: So many add-ins! Chopped malted milk mini eggs give this recipe a fun color and crunch, but Nestle Toll House chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, mini M&M’s, toffee bits, chopped nuts, dried fruit, or any other small candy means everyone can customize their own sweet treat.
