The Ultimate Cookie Dough For One
Have you ever baked a batch of cookies and found yourself eating the raw dough before it even goes in the oven? I love eating the raw cookie dough so much that sometimes I prefer it over the baked cookies! This recipe is absolutely perfect for a midnight snack when you want to fulfil your cravings for something sweet without having to spend more than 5 minutes in the kitchen. Eating raw cookie dough is also unhealthy and could potentially cause food poisoning because of the raw flour and eggs, but with this recipe, you can enjoy your cookie dough without worrying if it’s okay to eat or not.
Edible Cookie Dough Recipe
– 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
-2 tablespoons brown sugar
-2 tablespoons granulated sugar
-⅛ teaspoon vanilla extract (just measure this using a ¼ teaspoon)
– 1 tablespoon milk
– ⅛ teaspoon salt
– 6 tablespoons flour (Bake/toast the flour at 350 F or 180 C for 5 minutes to eliminate the risk of bacteria)
-1/4 cup (1.5 oz) chocolate chips (or any other toppings you have on hand)
1. In a small bowl, microwave the butter for 15 seconds until its on the verge of melting.
2. Add the granulated and brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and milk. Mix the ingredients together until combined.
3. Add the flour and mix until just combined. Don’t overmix.
4. Add the chocolate chips or other toppings and distribute it in the dough.
Salted vs Unsalted Butter
Since we’re adding additional salt in this recipe, use unsalted butter in this particular recipe. If you don’t have unsalted butter, you could just use salted butter and add only a pinch of salt. If you bake often, I would recommend investing in some good quality unsalted butter! The reason why we use unsalted in baking is because different brands of salted butter use different quantities of salt, so unsalted allows us to control the amount that we use.
Vanilla extract is used in baked good recipes to enhance the flavors. If you don’t have vanilla, you can still make this recipe without it! However, if you do plan on making baked goods more often, I would recommend investing in a good quality vanilla extract because it makes a huge difference!
Use an exact amount of flour
If the consistency of the dough is too wet, add a little extra flour but make sure not to add too much or else the cookie dough will taste like flour.
Bake the flour
Eating raw flour could potentially give you food poisoning so make sure that you bake the flour for 5 minutes to eliminate all chances of bacteria. (I know people like living life on the edge, but trust me– it’s so much better to enjoy this cookie dough without having to endure a stomach ache afterwards!)
