Edible Sugar Cookie Dough Recipe

Does it ever happen to you that whenever you bake something, you have the urge to taste the batter?? Cakes and cookies are desserts where I always want to peek at the taste of the batter or dough.

What if I say there is a way you can have cookie dough, and yes, it’s safe to eat?

If you follow American or European bakers, you must have heard the term Edible Cookie Dough!! The concept is widespread and loved in America.

Bringing that trend here, I have a unique edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe for you all, and it’s eggless too!

Chocolate chip cookies are an all-time favorite. You can eat the cookie dough as it is, or incorporate it in different things like buttercreams, ice cream, pies, etc. I’m sure you like the cookie dough as well.

So, you must be wondering how we can eat raw dough. It isn’t raw, but it isn’t baked like a cookie, either!

Flour is the only ingredient in an eggless cookie that needs cooking, so it isn’t raw. Hence we treat flour by baking it and then making the cookie dough edible.

What Does Edible Cookie Dough Taste Like?

The edible cookie dough tastes just the cookie dough you make while making cookies. It’s sweet, delicious and irresistible. The dough should be soft and pliable consistency which you take a spoonful and eat whenever you feel like it.

Essential Ingredients for Edible Cookie Dough

Flour-all purpose flour needs to be cooked in order to eat it. So the trick is to bake the flour in the oven until it turns brown and then use it to make the cookie dough.

Unsalted butter-you don’t want saltiness while eating the dough, so unsalted butter must be used.

Brown sugar – brown sugar adds depth and caramelized flavour to the dough.

Castor Sugar– when beaten with butter, it helps trap air making the dough fluffy.

Milk-it is needed to add richness and to bind the dough together.

Salt-since we are using unsalted butter, we can alter the amount of salt needed as per the taste.

Chocolate chips-good quality chocolate chips is essential to enhance the flavour of the cookie dough. Use couverture chocolate if possible.
