Edible Cookie Dough

One of my favorite *secrets* shared with hannah is licking the spatula after baking. I am not concerned with the raw egg, but the raw flour, which can transmit salmonella. The trick to this edible cookie dough, is NO eggs and heat treating the flour to kill any bacteria. Heat treating takes less than 10 minutes and is basically just baking your all purpose flour. This way we can enjoy cookie dough without the concerns of bacteria.

When I owned the bakery, butter bear shop, we used this recipe for cookie dough french macarons, cookie dough brownies and cupcakes too! This recipe also freezes well for up to 6 months.

Feel free to use other add ins, sprinkles, chocolate chunks, candy, etc. I love mini chocolate chips for this but regular work too.

How to use the cookie dough:

-On its own

-Cookie Dough Cupcakes, cheesecake topping, French Macaron filing

-Cookie Dough or Cookie Monster Brownies
