I admit it, I like raw chocolate chip cookie dough. I know, I know, it’s the worst thing in the world to eat raw. The eggs pose a salmonella threat, and there’s a risk of getting violently sick. Still, sneaking a bite or two is always an inevitability when I make chocolate chip cookies. So, imagine finding an eggless cookie dough recipe that is meant to be eaten raw and not baked.
At first I was excited and then rather skeptical. The only way to find out if the cookie dough was worth any effort was to try it. So, I set out last night to give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised.
It’s a decent substitute for the regular cookie dough, despite a grainy texture. The grainy texture wasn’t quite as noticeable after it was chilled for a bit. Overall, it gets two thumbs up from me.
It’s fairly easy to whip up with only a handful of ingredients.
Edible Cookie Dough Recipe
You will need:
1 cup of flour
a pinch of salt
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of butter, softened
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 tsp of vanilla
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
Start by creaming the sugar and butter in a medium bowl with a hand mixer. Then add in the vanilla and milk. Next, slowly add the flour and salt. Lastly, stir in the chocolate chips.
Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
Enjoy with a spoon.
This would be a perfect treat for girls night in, or a kids sleep over. Heck, I would keep it on hand for that sweet treat craving.
The next time I make it, I may try adding unsweet cocoa to it to give it a little more chocolaty goodness. You could also switch out the chocolate chips for peanut butter morsels, or butterscotch chips. This is one recipe that can be played with a little and will still be a sweet treat. Healthy? Absolutely not.
