It’s always cookie recipes around here. I’m obsessed chocolate chip cookies. Of all the ice cream flavors in the world my very first pick would be chocolate chip cookie dough. It’s no wonder an eggless cookie dough recipe should make an appearance here!

My edible cookie dough is JUST like the real thing, without the harmful bacteria that comes with the real stuff. We’ll be heat treating the flour and leaving out the eggs for a safe treat that is just like your favorite cookie recipe. Here’s why you’ll love it:

  • Taste: perfectly sweet and rich, just like the real thing (without eggs)
  • Texture: light and fluffy, perfect to scoop, roll, or eat with a spoon.
  • Ease: All you have to do is to remember to set out your butter ahead of time. After that, it’s minutes from start to finish.
  • Pros: easy to add to other desserts or right from a spoon.
  • Would I make this again? I’ve made this many, many times:)

There’s endless ways to eat this edible cookie dough! Put it in cupcakes, in brownies, as a frosting, as a crust layer to ice cream bars or cheesecake, in ice cream, or just plain by itself.

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.

Ingredients You Need

Grab all the ingredients you need for a regular chocolate chip cookies, except the eggs. Jump to the recipe card for exact measurements.

  • Butter: unsalted butter lets you control the amount of salt in the recipe. Leave it out at room temp for 1-2 hours to soften. If it’s too soft, the cookie dough will be soft too.
  • Sugar: I prefer light brown sugar, but dark works too. You’ll also need a bit of white sugar.
  • Heat treated four: heat treating takes a few minutes and removes any concerns of getting foodborne illness from the cookie dough. Keep reading for the simple steps!
  • Milk: this is an optional ingredient you may need, depending on the texture of your finished dough. I’ve made this recipe dozens of times and usually need a tablespoon or two of milk. If your dough is dry or crumbly, add a Tablespoon of milk at a time. It acts as the binding agent in place of the eggs.
  • Chocolate chips: My regular cookie dough uses regular chocolate chips, but I prefer mini chips for this recipe. You can use semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate.

How to Heat Treat Flour

Toasting flour at 350 for a few minutes kills off any harmful bacteria (like E. coli, which is the main concern here).

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees f and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Measure out your flour and spread it evenly on the prepared cookie sheet.
  3. Bake the flour for 6-8 minutes.
  4. Use an instant read thermometer to check the flour is safe to eat. It should be 160°F.

Success tip: let the flour cool so it doesn’t melt the butter in the dough.

Here are the simple steps to make this easy edible cookie dough recipe. Skip down to the recipe card for the full recipe. 

Cream Butter and Sugar

Beat the white sugar, brown sugar, and softened butter on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes, until light and fluffy.

Add the Dry Ingredients

Add the cooled flour to the raw dough and then add the salt. Beat with the mixer on low until combined. It will be slightly crumbly. 

Success tip: I found that the flour clumps together during the heating process. Run the flour through a sifter before stirring it into edible cookie dough to avoid any clumps.

Add Chocolate Chips and Enjoy!

Beat in a couple of tablespoons of milk to bring it all together. I’ve made this with whole milk, almond milk, and other plant milks—all work well! Stir mini chocolate chips into the dough and enjoy! Try a spoonful of dough, roll them into balls, or put them in homemade ice cream

Recipe Variations

Here are a few spins on this dough! I’ve tried all of these (brown butter is my favorite!) Get creative with your favorite cookie dough flavors!

  • Cookies and cream: add crushed Oreos to the dough.
  • Brown butter cookie dough: brown the butter then place it in the fridge to firm back up. Mix it in and add dark chocolate chunks and sea salt.
  • Funfetti: mix in some almond extract and rainbow sprinkles.
  • Peanut butter: Mix in 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter. You will need to add a bit more milk for this option.
  • White chocolate macadamia nut: crushed nuts and white chocolate chips.

Can You Bake It?

I don’t recommend baking this edible cookie dough recipe because it lacks eggs as a binder. If you’re looking for baked cookie recipes, try these chocolate chip pudding cookies.

After going through over 400 comments on this recipe, I’ve summed up the most common questions. I highly recommend reading through before making this recipe!

Why is my cookie dough greasy?

There are a few reasons for this! First, make sure you use real butter, not margarine. Next, room temperature butter should only be out for 1-2 hours and will still feel cool to the touch (60 degrees f). Last, don’t add the flour to the dough until it’s cool. Any three of these things can affect the final texture. Chill the dough for a bit to firm it back up if this happens!

Why is my dough dry and crumbly?

If you’re dough is dry, you may have added a touch too much flour, or you may just need a bit of extra milk. Next, the dough will be dry and crumbly at first, but start to come together slowly, so use an electric mixer until it does. Add milk until it reaches a cookie dough consistency.

Why is it so hard after storing?

This recipe will firm up in the fridge. Let it sit out at room temperature for an hour or two to soften.

Can I make any cookie dough safe to eat?

You can replace the eggs with milk or pasteurized eggs and it should be fine as long as you heat treat the flour too. Double check the other ingredients are safe to eat raw. Doughs with melted butter as a base (usually brown butter cookies) will need chilled to firm up first.

Storing Leftovers

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. Edible chocolate chip cookie dough freezes well for up to 3 months.

Thaw in the fridge overnight. Allow it to sit out at room temperature before serving again to soften slightly.

    This is a delicious recipe that tastes just like regular cookie dough minus the eggs! I’ve made this several times the last few months as my house snack. Pre-portioning the dough into balls makes it a quick and easy snack grab. You can eat the dough from the refrigerator (it’ll be firm) or let it soften to room temperature, it is delicious both ways. This recipe is a perfect balance of ingredients!

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Thank you!!

  3. Carson says:

    Taste so amazing i couldn’t tell it wasn’t regular cookie dough. I made little balls with them and refrigerated them so they were like cookie bites.😁

    I highly recommend making the 1x recipe. It tastes great and you can just turn what you don’t eat into cookie dough bites and freeze them for later. I tried making 0.5x recipe. Maybe I’m just too dumb to understand the cup measurements used in it.. but it didn’t turn out anywhere near as good. It doesn’t really taste as much like cookie dough but is still decent at least.

    5 stars for the 1x recipe though!

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Thanks, Yee!! That’s good to know! I’m going to take a look at the .5 measurements and make sure they’re still the same.

  9. Anne L. M. says:

    I was getting really confused with the measurements. I had to convert each ingredient to grams and got it a bit wrong aswell 😅
    No worries though, I added 3 tbsp of peanut butter and fixed my problem with the batter being dry and crumbly.
    The result was great! I might just have to try again and get it precisely right but I’m happy that making cookie dough is so simple that eyeballing it will give just as good results 💛

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Thanks, Anne! I’m working through all of my recipes to add an option for metric units. Thanks for sticking with me!

    This turns out so well I love it for me and my kids! But tonight I tried doubling the recipe cause we always run out and it tastes so much like butter I’m sad. I’m going to leave it in the fridge over night to see if it will help it not be so greasy. If it’s still soupy tomorrow I might add more flour to see if that helps. Any tips?

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Ali! Sounds like you might have an issue with measurements. Sometimes that can happen when doubling (been there!). The other issue could have been adding hot flour to the butter mixture. This can melt the butter and cause texture issues. You should be able to chill the dough or add some more flour to fix either problem. Thanks!

    My mom was craving some cookie dough, and this hit the spot

  14. RainNRoanoke says:

    A couple of questions for those who say it’s was greasy or too liquid…. Are you using actual butter or did you substitute margarine? Also, for some who did not like the taste or texture, perhaps you didn’t let the flour cool after heat treatment? 🤷🏼‍♀️
    I’ve made it multiple times and even use it to make chocolate covered cookie dough pops. 🤤 Everyone raves about those.

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hello! I’m wondering these same questions myself! I’ve made this recipe so many times without any issues at all! Margarine would make them greasy or adding too much butter might as well. The other important factor is measuring the ingredients correctly! Cookie dough pops sound AMAZING!!

  15. George says:

    This was delicious!
    I have to admit, I made a couple of changes.
    I added two large eggs and a teaspoon of baking powder. I also did not heat treat the flour.
    However, it tasted EXACTLY like the cookie dough I remember from my childhood. Two thumbs way up!

  16. S says:

    I halved the recipe, omitted the milk (more on that later) and it turned out fabulously!

    I read through a boat load of comments before heading to the kitchen. I then let my stick of butter (halved recipe, remember) sit out for a bit until it softened up. I believe that melted butter would result in a hot mess of runny batter, just set out your butter and be a wee bit patient (hard when cookie dough is on the other side of your efforts, I know).

    I heat treated my flour in 15 second intervals for a total of 60 seconds, stirring well between each interval. I then let the flour cool a bit before getting started.

    A non-negotiable is using a mixer. You have to beat the sugars and butter together with a mixer – doing this by hand isn’t going to give you the texture you want.

    Once I mixed in the flour I felt the texture was exactly where I wanted it so I omitted adding any milk. This worked well until I left the left over dough in the fridge over night, while still delicious the dough was harder and more crumbly than desired. If you are going to refrigerate prior to eating I recommend adding in a wee bit of milk. If you are grabbing a spoon asap then don’t worry about the milk 😉

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Thanks for sharing all your tips!! These are so helpful. I agree about using a mixer. I think the biggest problem with greasy dough is adding the hot, heat-treated flour to the dough too soon. You need to let it cool slightly prior to adding it into the butter and sugar. I also agree about making sure it’s softened to room temp. Many people don’t know room temperature butter is actually only about 66 degrees f and should still feel cool to the touch. Thanks again!

  17. MichelleT says:

    I made this and it was delicious. The one thing I added though was baking soda. I was mixing that baking soda flavor and after I added some it was perfect. I’m not sure how much I added. It was 3-4 punches. I just kept adding a little at a time and trying it until it tasted right.

  18. Aubree says:

    3 stars
    I have yet to make the full recipe. I stop right after adding only 1.5 cups of flour and then added in 1tbsp of milk, but I wish I would have left the milk out. I’m not sure of its purpose? The dough was perfect and I should have added the choc chips right there before the milk and just ate it ha! After I added the milk I had to add another quarter cup of flour because it moistened the dough too much and I’m sad that I lost that good flavor. Taste as you go!

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Aubree! I’ve tested this countless times as directed and I always need the milk to bring it all together. The temperature of your ingredients is likely what’s causing the texture differences. Double check your butter isn’t too warm next time! Room temp butter is actually 65-67 degrees, so it should feel cool to the touch. Adding warm, heat-treated flour to the dough could do this too. If this happens, throw it in the fridge for a few minutes and it should help!

  19. Bianca says:

    Is there an alternative to cows milk? My family is lactose intolerant. Would soy or almond affect the taste?

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey there! Yes, I’ve tested this with all different kinds of milk and all work well. I’ve made it with plant-based butter (I like Myokos) and it works. Thanks!

    Really loved this stuff, been looking for a good edible cookie dough recipe for ages but none I could find
    really spoke to me until this one.

    I’ve made it three times already, the family loved it, although I think I miscalculated the ingredients in the last attempt as it got too greasy and liquid.
    But well, disadvantages of only using the metric system here.
    And had to improvise with the chocolate chips, all the local stuff was pretty expensive so I cut pieces from dark cooking chocolate, and the bitter flavour really added to it.

    So, just one question as I prefer to use margarine instead of butter in cooking, and from my research it appears the conversion between butter and margarine is 1:1, but wanted to check if you had any other insight on this.

    Sending my appreciations from the other side of the Atlantic!

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Alexandre! Thanks for sharing. I don’t recommend swapping margarine for butter in this recipe. That may be part of the texture problem! The other thing to check is the temperature of your ingredients. Let the flour cool before adding it to the dough. And make sure the butter is room temp (65-67 degrees f). I also added metric units for ya! Thanks for sharing.

    It’s reeeeally good but incredibly rich if you’re only making this for a few people I recommend cutting it in half (if it’s only for 2 people that’s a whole stick of butter each so it’s really rich). Otherwise it’s delicious and I recommend it!!

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Thanks, Lucy! I updated the serving size to the amount of servings rather than the amount of cups. This does make quite a bit of cookie dough! I also added an option to halve the recipe, so it will make it even easier to halve it for you next time you make it. Thanks!

    It’s really interesting to read so much confusion. I thought the recipe was so clear and easy to follow and the results were delicious! I love cookie dough ice cream but don’t prefer chocolate bits in addition to the chocolate chips in the cookie dough. I made this today with the perfect amount of chocolate chips and added it to my vanilla ice cream and I never have to buy chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream again! I can’t wait to incorporate this cookie dough into other recipes! Thanks for sharing.

    Way to much butter in this recipe. Twice that of other recipes. I didn’t notice and now it tastes like butter.

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hi Kevin! You need more butter in this to bring it all together because there aren’t eggs to do that. I recommend using quality butter here. This is the amount of butter I use in all my baked cookies. The only thing missing here is the eggs. It shouldn’t have a strong butter flavor. Thanks!

    Where I live, pasteurized eggs are available in most supermarkets. How much egg is needed to replace the milk?

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Finn! That’s great. I haven’t tested this recipe with eggs, but I’d probably try adding 1 egg. You may need to add a couple more Tablespoons of flour to reach your desired consistency. Let me know if you try it!

    It was okay but it was way to floury.

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Audrey! Did you heat treat your flour? Heating the flour ensures any harmful bacteria is killed, but it also reduces the floury taste. This is similar to making a roux to thicken sauces! Cooking the flour helps for sure. Thanks!

    This cookie dough was GREAT! I liked it so much I used it as the inclusion for my new goat milk gelato flavor, Chocolate Chip Cookie Doe (see what I did there? 😉 )

    For those who say they followed the instructions and it turned out like bread crumbs, or the wrong consistency? Be patient. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer and it did take a bit for the cookie dough to come together and take shape. I was very conservative adding the milk until it actually started to LOOK like cookie dough. Then add the milk for the desired constency. My experience, anyway.

      Hey Ash! If you like regular baked cookies, you should like this recipe! It’s exactly the same ratios as baked cookies, minus the eggs. Make sure you heat treat your flour because it removes a strong raw flour taste. You’ll also want to use quality butter. Hope this helps!

    Recipe turned out pretty good! Honestly reminds me of store-bought Nestle cookie dough, which I love flavor-wise, but didn’t want to buy due to the company being super unethical. The recipe was super easy to follow and didn’t disappoint. My one takeaway from the recipe would be to use slightly less flour or more milk. I added a little more brown sugar and vanilla extract for a sweeter taste, I also didn’t add any salt separately and used already salted butter instead. Make sure you let your butter soften completely (maybe leave it out overnight as I did) and to fully blend it with the sugars before adding anything else, or your dough will end up being a total flop. Every time I mess up cookie dough, it’s either because of the butter (too soft/warm/hard/cold…) and or the order of process/combining. Hope this helps! 🙂

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Thanks for the feedback, Serena! And for sharing your recipe changes and results. The temperature of your ingredients is super important for the right texture here. Room temp butter is actually 65-67 degrees, so it should be cool to the touch. It only needs to be set out for an hour or two! Making sure you wait to add the heat-treated flour is important or it can melt the butter and cause a greasy dough. Definitely recommend adding milk slowly!

    Procrastinating on school work and looking for something to munch on I made this. Never in my life have I made something so delicious, so delectable. This is truely the best cookie dough ever. I really don’t know if it was just me but it was so airy and fluffy and I’m shoving it down my throat as I type this. I’ll never enjoy something more than this cookie dough.

    Alright but can feel the sugar and butter. Cant do without chocolate!

    1. Ellie says:

      Then you probably didn’t mix it well enough.

    2. Molly Thompson says:

      Yes, definitely recommend mixing the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy!

    Great dough! I’m putting it in ice cream. I didn’t add milk. My go-to (baked) choco chip cookie recipe does not have eggs or milk, so if the dough comes together without it, nix it.

    I think the people saying it came out like a liquid may have either melted their butter(it should be solid, but soft/spreadable), didn’t let the flour cool off, or both!
    Maybe you should add that as a note — let the flour cool off. Otherwise it may melt everything including the chocolate chips. Common sense here, people…

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Thanks, Sadie! You are EXACTLY right. I added a note about this. Thanks!

    Made this as a movie snack yesterday and it was delicious! I made half the recipe and needed a tiny splash more milk but that is probably my preference for super soft cookie dough or me halving the recipe. If you love stealing some cookie dough out of the bowl then you will love this recipe. It is sweet as cookie dough but the salt helps cutting trough that sweetness so you can keep on snacking without it being to sweet

    so good! i recommend popping it into the freezer for a little beforehand so it gets cold

  70. Claire Pfeifer says:


    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Claire! Appreciate the feedback. Did you measure everything correctly or miss any ingredients? The end of the recipe notes to add more or less milk to reach the right consistency. This is helpful because people’s measurements can vary so much. Thanks!

  71. Myles says:

    my third batch-the chocolate chips melted in the boiling butter! It turned deep brown. :0

    1. Sadie says:

      Why was the butter so hot?? It should be solid, but soft. Do NOT microwave or melt it…

    2. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Myles! Your cookie dough shouldn’t be warm at all, especially not warm enough to melt chocolate. Make sure you’re using room temp butter (65-67 degrees f) and that you let the flour cool before adding it to the dough. Thanks!

  72. Myles says:

    5 stars
    tastes so good– when you get the measurements right. on my first try i put triple the amount of salt needed, measuring in tablespoons not teaspoons. but it tastes great on my second batch.

    So so good! Though the flour got kind of hard when put in the microwave to heat treat it. Do you think less time will make it less hard?
    Boyfriend and I can’t stop ourselves from eating it, might become a problem! xD
    Thank you so much for this recipe.

    This recipe was so good! I heated my flour for 30 more seconds in the microwave. Next time, I would let the mixture cool in the fridge or feeezer before adding chocolate chips—they melted when I mixed them in.

    I did everything the recipe said but it didn’t work out, it’s really sticky and doesn’t look anything like cookie dough, no matter how many times I’ve added more flower the consistency doesn’t change. What do I do?

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Niki! You’ll want to double check your measurements and the temperature of your ingredients. Use room temp butter (65-67°F) and let the flour cool prior to adding it to the dough. Thanks!

    Very yummy, I didn’t heat treat the flour but obviously proceed at your own risk if you aren’t going to. I did think it was way too much butter, so I’m going to try to find a different recipe next time.

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey there! Do you feel this way because of the butter taste or texture? Hoping I can help!

  93. Ava says:

    1 star
    it looked and tasted very greasy!

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Ava! You may have added the heat treated flour to the dough before it was cool enough. This can melt the butter and make it greasy. You always want to make sure the butter isn’t melted and just barely soft. Softened butter should feel cool to the touch still. Hope this helps!

  94. Amy says:

    5 stars

  95. Chloe says:

    Definitely far too much flour — you can really taste it over the general “cookie flavor” even after I’d let the dough sit in the fridge a while to let the flavors meld and get all nice the way I would normal cookie dough before baking. Next time I do this I may use a different recipe or increase the amount of creamed butter and sugar, as well as increase the amount brown sugar to hopefully balance out just how much flour there is

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Chloe! Did you heat treat your flour? This can happen with raw flour when it isn’t heated. Thanks!

      You probably didn’t put enough milk no I am 99.9999 percent sure you didn’t put enough milk, even though it say 2 tablespoons of milk it ALSO says more if needed and before I put in more milk mine was weird and crumbly and wasn’t really cookie dough

  103. Holly Caldin says:

    HI I looked at the reviews and noticed that some people were having problems with heat treating the flour. I recommend using oat or almond flour as it does not have to be heat treated and can be eaten raw. It shouldn’t change the texture or consistency of the dough at all.

    why is it so greasy? i had a taste and now my stomach kills. I heat treated the flour too.

    1. Judy Lamantia says:

      Lydia, I haven’t made this, but I do bake a lot. My guess that yours was greasy was because the flour hadn’t cooled to room temperature before adding it to the butter-sugar mixture, making the butter melt.

    it tasted like paste with no flavour, and had a flour aftertaste. I followed the instructions perfectly though. 🙁

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Madeleine! This recipe uses the exact same amount of ingredients as any cookie dough, just with milk instead of the eggs. It’s important to use quality butter for the dough! It may just be the recipe isn’t for you, and that’s okay!

    This was supposed to be in the first email, but my phone wasn’t cooperative…
    You mentioned the recipe was good for up to three days in the fridge, i am making an ice cream cake and using the cookie dough for the cookie dough ice cream components,how long should it be in the refrigerator before shaping it into little bits for cookie dough ice cream?

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hi Annette! You can leave it in the fridge for a few days or if it’s going to be longer, you can throw it in the freezer to last longer then let it thaw overnight in the fridge so you can shape it. You could also make the edible cookie dough and shape it into balls right away then place it in the fridge or freezer until you’re ready to make the cake. I actually have a homemade cookie dough ice cream recipe on my website using this edible cookie dough. Great minds think alike:) Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Why use the wee sizes of chocolate. Why not the dark, rich, smooth large chunks of brown delight and bliss. Why must I minimize the aural bliss of a small piece of delight when you could easily exchange it for something much more. Something unexplainable. Something, spectacular.
    Idk I think it’s kinda wack to use small pieces of chocolate? is there a real reason for that?

    can I not heat treat the flour? i dont have any oven or microwave with me and i would like to ask what would happen if you eat flour as it is and also if you heat treat the flour will it taste the same as the one not heat treated? thanks a lot for the recipe will try it out soon

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hey Eric! Heat treating the flour is a precaution to avoid salmonella. Sometimes flour that isn’t heat treated is a risk for that. I’ve made this without heat treating it (doesn’t change the taste). I would leave that up to your discretion if you feel comfortable doing it. Thanks!

    Hello! So I was wondering if you needed to heat up the flour. I’m going to made a video while making this, so lemme know!

  131. R T says:

    “Heat treat your flour by placing it in a microwave safe bowl and heating on high for 50-60 seconds until the internal temperature reaches 166°F.”
    After reading the comments above, I think this is where people are having issues with the recipe. Depending on how touchy their microwave is, they might need to put it in for 20-30 seconds, stir the flour thoroughly, and repeat until 165/166 is hit.

    It was confirmed in one of the posts that if you burn the flour, the flavor will not be what you are expecting.
    It was also confirmed that if you do not microwave the flour, you also risk food poisoning.

    My boyfriend and I tried making this on two separate occasions, we followed the instructions to the T and both times it came out disgusting. Essentially it just tasted like very sweet flour, and the consistency was all wrong. From the other comments I’ve seen a lot of people are having the same issues, even though everyone is following the recipe correctly. We won’t be trying this again, an we wish we hadn’t wasted our baking materials on this

    1. Rebecca says:

      I tried this and it didn’t work to well the only problem for me was the milk amount, instead of what the recipe called for I used about 1/3 cup of milk or 1/2 a cup, hopefully that works!

    Really not sure what happened as I followed all the instructions. The mixture turned out okay however I spent the whole night throwing up and I am now extremely ill. Not sure if I ate too much of it or what Would definitely recommend cooking the mixture after and only eating a very small amount as it did taste good.

    Awesome recipe! I think the only thing I messed up was adding the milk after the flour, maybe I should’ve waited ‘till the flour cooled, as the dough became very wet, but hey it tasted just like actual cookie dough! Also for those reading I had cooked my flour above the listed temp (which was fine) but I probably should’ve waited to add my chocolate chips too, until the flour cooled, as the chocolate melted a little. My mistakes, but 10/10 this tasted so good!

    I don’t usually leave reviews, but I LOVE this recipe. I’ve used it for months. Since the start of the pandemic and being at home, I have tried many different cookie dough recipes. But most of them just don’t taste right. This one is PERFECT. Now without doubt I always use this recipe. Probably too often, because I am addicted to this stuff. I even had a friend convince me to try her cookie dough recipe which she loves, but it was nothing compared to this. Next time she comes over we’re making this recipe!!

      Hi Sophia! I wouldn’t sub it with applesauce or yogurt or you’ll have a weird texture. Those sub only really work when you’re baking the dough in things. I would sub vegan butter!

    I made this with vegan butter (im allergic to dairy and eggs) and the texture came out a little weird, so fellow vegan/allergy sensative people i would recommend not adding the milk. Lol our weird fake butter will add enough moisture to replace it.
    10/10 delicious and easy! Tragically i ate the whole thing in one sitting so i feel terrible but i will be making more tomorrow!

    Ps does anyone have tips on microwaving the flour? I tried to stir it a few times throughout to make sure it didnt clump but it still gets really stuck to the sides of the bowl

      People have baked the dough as is and they’ve turned out! I would try that!

    This tasted great! It’s also so easy to veganize it, just use dairy-free chocolate and any plant based milk!

    I love this edible cookie dough! I prefer it after it’s been in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. I had to modify the recipe a bit to my taste. I decreased the flour to 1 cup because I could really taste it otherwise. I burnt it once so now I’m careful. And I use unsalted butter and no salt added to the recipe. This is my go to when I want a little sweet snack! Thanks for sharing.

    My daughter and I had a blast making this. She says it is “the best cookie dough in the world.” (The drama)

    Quick question. If we use a portion for baking the cookies, should we add an egg and baking soda?

    Taste amazing! Our flour turned clumpy though

    1. Lilly says:

      It has to be sieved

  163. Aoife says:

    How long will this last? Do I store it in the fridge ?

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Store it covered in the fridge! It will last up to 5 days!

      1. Aoife says:

        Amazing thank you one more question if thats ok, can it be frozen?

        1. Molly Thompson says:

          I haven’t tried it but I think it would work! Just thaw it overnight in the fridge before eating!

        2. Lill says:

          Yes it can be for 2 months frozen

    My son and I made this and it was excellent! Very sweet and rich so you don’t want to eat too much at once lol. Will definitely make again. Just wondering how long it is good for when stored in the refrigerator…

  168. Chelsea says:

    Um you definitely shouldn’t eat flour raw. You might not always get sick, but grains are stored for a long time and mice and rats and bugs hang out in it and poop in it and everything gets ground up into flour, it’s not cooked until you cook it. Definitely heat treat your flour!!

    Unsure what I did wrong. It tastes really good and my family liked it but we were trying for a dough we could shape. I followed directions mostly. I only added 1 tbsp of milk as my dough seemed loose. I hoped it would form up in the fridge but it never did get much firmer. Perhaps using margarine is the difference?

    1. Molly Thompson says:

      Hi Patty! Did you use margarine rather than butter? That’s probably the difference!

      1. Patty says:

        5 stars
        I have not had an opportunity to make this again but I did use room temperature margarine to make this recipe and I highly suspect that was the reason for my issue. It was good though and I will make this again.

    Ahhh! Just made this and it definitely tastes like cookie dough! Maybe I should have put the dough in the fridge for longer because it was quite soft and didn’t really have the consistency of dough (I even added more flour) but I didn’t mind that too much, because it tasted good! Thanks for this recipe xx

    Hi from Denmark!
    I just made this, with my 13 year old daughter and it turned out perfect, soft creamy and perfect in texture. Did use salted butter and added salt, and it tastes too good 😛
    Thank you for a very nice and easy recipe to follow <3

    1. Molly Leonard says:

      Hey Mia!

      Hello from Columbus, OH:) So glad it turned out great. Thanks for taking the time to let me know:)


  193. Mindy says:

    This is amazing! My daughter and I had a craving for some chocolate chip cookie dough. I’d never made it before and searched Ponterest. I came upon your recipe and it seemed easy enough. I wasn’t turning out to buy ingredients, so I had to alter the recipe a bit. We only had Lactaid milk in the house ( only needed 2 Tbs anyway) and I had no butter in the house…only margarine. Yes…don’t make fun of me, but we were desperate to cure our craving! I left the salt out because margarine has salt in it.
    It came out great! When I tasted it right after it was all mixed, I decided it still needed a couple of pinches of salt.
    So…margarine instead of butter, and Lactaid instead of milk. SEE??? It’s totally HEALTHY!!! LOL!
    I did stick it in the freezer for about 30 minutes and then the fridge for storage. It’s SO delicious! We divided it into 2 separate containers so we each have our own! It really makes a LOT!

    1. Molly Leonard says:

      Hey Mindy!!

      Best news ever! So glad my recipe could satisfy your craving, it’s one of my faves. And thank you so much for sharing your subs/swaps I’ll definitely keep those in mind.


  194. Sam says:


    I modified the recipe slightly by adding a little less salt and also a tbsp more milk to make it softer. I’ve kept it in the fridge and it looses its softness, now it’s so hard a crumbles. Do you have any ideas on keeping it soft? The flavor is delicious! Great recipe

    1. Molly Leonard says:

      Hey Sam!

      Have you tried leaving it out a while to soften? It’s likely because the cream cheese and butter have hardened from the fridge. If you let it sit out for around 30-40 minutes it should soften again.


      1. Sam says:

        The cream cheese? Thanks for the reply

        1. Molly Leonard says:

          Oops! My brain was in Buckeye Dip mode! Which is also another delicious recipe:)

  195. Katie says:

    It should be noted that eating raw flour is a risk as well because the flour could contain harmful bacteria. Since there is no actually baking of the cookie dough and no heat to kill the bacteria that could possibly be lurking, it isn’t really safe to it. Commercially made products that contain cookie dough use heat treated flour in their products but unfortunately that isn’t sold in stores.

    1. Molly Leonard says:

      Hi Katie! Thanks so much for your feedback. And really appreciate your concern. When it comes to raw flour you definitely want to be careful. However, you have the same, or larger, chance of eating the same bacteria on fruits and veggies, like a spinach salad for example. I’ve made this recipe multiple times and haven’t had any issues. Hope this helps!

      1. Megan says:

        You can cook all purpose flour spread on a cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes to kill any bacteria in the flour, that’s what I always do when I make edible cookie dough 🙂 just make sure the flour is cool before you add it to the mix.

        1. Molly Leonard says:

          Yep you can definitely heat treat the flour! Love it!

    Yum!! Despite others who this didn’t work out for, I thought this was delicious. A little smoother/softer texture than store bought, but the taste is there! Refrigerating before I began scarfing it down may have helped it harden a bit more…haha. I Will keep this recipe!

    I just made this cookie dough yesterday and it turned out VERY salty! I put in 1 tsp, but I think it was just to much. It ruined the taste of the dough, but I wasn’t going to waist the ingredients and make it again, so I added it to the ice cream mixture and after it froze and I tasted it this morning, the dough wasn’t bad. I think one of my problems was I used salted butter, it was just to much. The next time I make it, if I use salted butter, I won’t use any salt, and if it’s unsalted butter, I would only use 1/2 tsp. Just a suggestion. Overall the ice cream was real yummy and like I said the dough wasn’t bad.

    1. Molly says:

      Hey Beth! Thanks so much for your feedback. Yes, definitely recommend using unsalted butter here it really makes a difference! I’m so glad you found a solution and thank you for taking the time to let me know:)

      1. Molly says:

        Hey Ally! So so sorry to hear it didn’t turn out.

        I really wish I could answer this question for you. Truthfully, any number of factors could have contributed to the recipe not turning out as intended: the temperature of the ingredients; if any ingredients had expired; measuring technique etc. I test my recipes multiple times and have used this as a tried and true component to many other desserts.

        Curious as to what it tasted like? Maybe that will help me pinpoint any revisions or recommendations!

          I just FaceTimed with my granddaughter and she made this recipe… I found it and read it to her… we usually bake together each week since COVID! Sometimes I bake too but tonight just her and the entire family tried it and it was a thumbs up???????????? For all of the family! Thanks! I’m thinking if people are having a problem it might be the baking of the flour! We baked it in the microwave a cup at a time!!! If the flour burns then a completely different taste which I know you know! Anyway excellent!

I followed all the instructions, and the key I found out to get it just right is patience. When it looked like it was a flop I just kept mixing and reading on, it turned out great after that. Also, my personal favorite way to eat it is to put it in Tupperware and freeze it. So yummy!!

        Hey Morgan! Very bummed to hear that. This recipe uses the base of my favorite cookie dough just minus the baking soda and milk instead of eggs (so you can eat it raw!). Because it doesn’t have eggs you may notice a slight difference in taste, but the texture should be the same and should still taste like cookie dough.

Just because you did it multiple times does NOT mean you are going to do it right one of those times. Try reading the instrustions and the amount of each ingredient VERY carefully. Trust me, when i made this it was amazing. You could also go and buy edible cookie dough from vat19 or amazon.

        Cause u did it wrong. If u do it right it amazing. Also do some math and cut the recipe in half. No one wants to hear u complain.

        Made way to much ? Ever heard of cutting the recipe in half ? Guess not

      I’m sorry but my dough came out gross.. Heat treating the flour made the flour smell foul. I still went along with the recipe with exact Measurements and temperatures thinking maybe it would change once I added and mixed everything. But, mine came out mushy and it does not taste or look like cookie dough whatsoever. I made it because my cravings are all over the place and I thought this would be a good place to start, and it just made me really sad and upset that it did not come out as planned. I probably won’t be using this recipe again nor sharing it with friends and family sorry.

      2. Christine Vincent says:

        You can cook these??? Will they come out just like cookies because I made them and literally took a big mouthful and it’s just too sweet to eat raw plus it looks kinda greasy so maybe making it into cookies will help

          Yup! I would cook them for like 10 min cuz that’s what I did. Also you have to let the. Cool other wise they still look like the raw version. Don’t be fooled!

      I followed the recipe exactly, and my dough came out with a liquid consistency. It never received its dough shape. I have placed the dough in the freezer and will update you on the flavor. Hopefully, freezing the mixture will improve its shape.

      1. Molly Thompson says:

        Let me know how it turned out! I’ve tested this recipe over and over and have never had this issue. What was the consistency of your butter?

      2. Bugshine123 says:

        Maybe you did not add enough flour if you need to you can add more I am sorry it did not workout

      3. Sheila says:

        If it is coming out like liquid, maybe your butter is melted instead of softened. You might have used too much milk as well.

    9. Kylie says:

      One time I made edible cookie dough and we added too much salt. Is that your issue?

    10. tay says:

      i need to try this on christmas

    11. Noah says:

      Hi I’m Noah and it really worked so well for me. One problem that might happen is too much milk or just too much flour which can really affect the taste. When you heat treated the flour you should mix it each 15 seconds for a better heat area and if you do it without mixing it’s possible the top starts hating up too much while the bottom remains same! I hope this helps

    14. JONI says:

      I agree it tastes nothing like cookie dough. I’m not sure if it is due to heating the flour or to much vanilla. It taste bad an the after taste in your mouth is bad. I followed the steps by step instructions an measured everything level

      1. Molly Thompson says:

        I’m sorry to hear that! It contains literally the exact same ingredients as cookies, minus the eggs. Heating the flour doesn’t change the taste of it!

        1. Jess says:

          Sooo I heat treated after I mixed the recipe? They taste delicious but I realized afterwards I read recipe wrong. Will my flour still be “treated”?

    15. Addy says:

      Well I made it and I saw that it was super liquidy. I am putting it in the freezer to harden it.

      1. Genevieve says:

        I have not made this yet, but I made homemade nutella chocolate chips. Is that OK to use instead of store bought chocolate chips?

      2. Michele says:

        5 stars
        Followed the recipe exactly. I sifted the flour after measuring it and stirred it several times while heating it. Tastes exactly like chocolate chip cookie dough! Next time I will halve the recipe. If anyone has an issue with it not coming together and being too liquid or mushy, the butter was probably more on the melted side.

      I love it!! But is it possible to use normal sugar instead of brown sugar?

      1. Molly Thompson says:

        You could use normal sugar or coconut sugar!

      The first time I did it my flower got stuck together this time I did it for 20 seconds and it was really good and tasted like cookie dough.

      1. Molly Thompson says:

        Thank you! Glad you liked it!

      Me too. Also the recipe maybe has too much vanilla extract. Mine tastes so bitter now and I can’t mask it with sugar 🙁 I’m a bit disappointed i thought I followed this recipe before bc I already had all the ingredients. But it doesn’t taste the same, I only taste brown sugar and vanilla extract now. The last time it tasted like cookie dough it was delicious. I’m confused thnx for the recipe tho. It was nice trying 🙂

      I think I just did it wrong, but it was not a light brown, and it tasted not great, but not terrible. Again I think I did something wrong though.

      I know I’m late to the party but I just wanted to say that I had the same problem and I added an extra 1/4 c of granulated sugar, which made it taste much better. It is just too salty otherwise.

    35. Elizabeth says:

      I wonder if you’re missing the baking soda flavor. Unlike dough you cook, this version doesn’t have any. I *think* you can safely consume baking soda without heating and baking soda does have a flavor and it’s present in regular cookie dough.

      Was too salty in my opinion

      1. Molly Thompson says:

        Hey Heather! Did you use salted butter?

      Mine was salty but if cream your butter and salt (I put a little less salt in mine) then add sugar and follow the recipe it will be much better and your family will eat all of it.

    This was awesome! Me and my kids love cookie dough and have ate it raw eventhough they say not to. My kids are grown and still love it. This is a good alternative. I took the dough and pushed it into silicone molds and froze it. Then I dipped the shapes into chocolate. It was a hit. I’m a long time Baker and I don’t care what other people say,this is awesome! They may have messed up with the flour. Just my thought. ??

  206. Molly Thompson says:

    Thanks, Tammy! I LOVE the idea of freezing it and dipping them in chocolate. Genius!
