How do you make cookie dough without eggs?
To make cookie dough without eggs you'll blend all of the traditional cookie dough ingredients together with a stand mixer or electric hand mixer and add milk to bring it all together instead of eggs.
You'll cream the butter and sugar together like you do with traditional cookies when you make edible cookie dough, then you'll add the flour, vanilla and salt. Because we aren't baking this edible cookie dough you don't need any baking soda or baking powder to help them rise.
Once it's mixed you'll add mini chocolate chips (or sprinkles!) to it and serve with graham crackers, teddy grahams or any of your favorite dipping snacks.
Is it safe to eat raw flour?
It isn't the safest to eat raw flour. In recent years people have found that faw flour can cause stomach issues so it's better to heat treat your flour before making edible cookie dough to be safe.
How to heat treat: place the flour in a bowl and then place on high in the microwave until the flour reaches an internal temp of 166°F. This takes generally 50-60 seconds. Once you do this you're good!
