How to Make Edible Sugar Cookie Dough Safe to Eat?

Because of the possibility of e-coli being found in flour it’s now a good idea to heat it in the oven to kill off any possible bacteria before consuming for things like cookie dough. And of course let’s skip the eggs.

  • Heat treat the flour: spread 3 cups of flour out onto a rimmed 18 by 13-inch baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 7 minutes, or until flour temperature registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. Let cool completely then transfer to an airtight container.
  • I’ll be honest this step is a little messy, I like to use a metal spatula and scrap to one corner and pour into a resealable bag. Then measure out what you need from there (using the scoop and level method).

How Long Does Cookie Dough Last in the Fridge?

Can I Bake This Edible Sugar Cookie Dough?

No, please don’t try to bake this cookie dough. With its lack of egg and leavening (baking soda/baking powder) the cookies would spread and be flat, and you wouldn’t end with a soft and chewy cookie.
