Edible cookie dough is one of my favorite late night snacks or party dips. It’s absolutely delicious, kid (and adult) approved, and eggless cookie dough is completely safe to eat!

Even though baked cookies are perfectly delicious, there’s something about the sweet, cool, melt-in-your-mouth flavor of just the plain, raw, dough. We love serving it at parties alongside fruit dip, it’s the perfect dip combo!

Now there is a cookie dough recipe that you don’t have to worry about food poisoning or a belly ache! This easy edible cookie dough recipe can be used as a dip or a spread, too!

Try it on graham crackers, pretzels, or even Ritz crackers! Sliced apples, pears, bananas, or strawberries are great options too!

What is Edible Cookie Dough?

It’s raw with NO eggs, so it is perfectly safe to eat. Edible chocolate chip cookie dough or edible sugar cookie dough is easy to make with just six simple ingredients you probably already have on hand!

Keep your edible raw cookie dough chilled so it sticks together better. The butter is the real ‘glue’ here and once it’s all put together, let it chill for about 30 minutes before eating with a spoon!

OR, let it soften slightly and spread on bread, crackers, cookies, or fruit!

How To Make Edible Cookie Dough

This eggless cookie dough is a fun take on what used to be a childhood no-no!

Make sure the butter is softened a little bit and put into a mixing bowl.

  1. Sift or whisk the flour so it is very smooth and powdery.
  2. If the brown sugar is hard or has lumps in it, soften it by placing a wet slice of bread in a bowl with the brown sugar and microwaving it for 30 seconds. This will steam the brown sugar enough to make it easier to work with.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and an optional pinch of salt.

You can eat your edible cookie dough for one or you can chill it a bit and scoop it with a spoon!

This recipe is so delicious and tastes just like the real thing, you might be asking can you bake edible cookie dough? Unfortunately, the answer is no. Since this recipe doesn’t contain eggs, baking powder or baking soda, it cannot have that ‘rise’ that baked goods do. Created to be eaten raw is what makes this recipe so much fun!

It’s delicious served next to fruit dip at parties, and perfect for kids or late night snacks!

  1. do we just put put all the ingrenients in a bowl and mix it together? and then eat it.

    • I would nuke flour first to pasteurize it first. Emmy from YouTube says to do it in the microwave for 1min 15sec until it meets 165 degrees F. Stirring after the first initial 1:15 and then check every 30sec until it meets 165 degrees F. Shouldn’t take another minute or so to reach that temperature. The flour should smell like it was toasted.

  2. I’m so excited about this eggless cookie dough.

  3. I used this recipe, but added a tablespoon of shortening, rolled into balls, froze it, and dipped into chocolate for cookie dough truffles.

  4. I just tried it and it is DELICIOUS! Definitely one for the books. 🙂

  5. I used peanut butter chips and added walnuts. Very delicious. The basic dough is fantastic

  6. Most eggs bought from the store are pasteurized (brought to a high enough temp to kill bacterial, but not cook the egg…much like milk) nowadays so there isnt a big risk of salmonella like there used to be.

  7. I just tried with white chocolate chips and it is very tasty! I think just as tasty with the white chocolate as milk chocolate. I had never thought to try M&M’s.

  8. All I can say is yum! I’ll have to keep this recipe close for super stressful days :0)

  9. I made it taste buttery to me. I’m going to fridge it over night and see what happnes.

  10. Tried this! It was thicker after I put it in the fridge for a while. Very tasty! Put M&M’s instead of chocolate chips.
