Edible Naked Cookie Dough Recipe

  • Author: Anna
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Category: dessert

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Begin by heat-treating your flour. To do so, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread your flour evenly over a lined baking sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes. Be very careful not to burn. Allow the flour to cool completely before proceeding with this edible cookie dough recipe. Set aside.
  2.  Begin beating your butter with your sugar until it is light, fluffy, and pale.
  3. With a rubber spatula or spoon, stir in your vanilla extract and cinnamon, if using.
  4. To this, carefully sift your flour along with the salt and stir to combine.
  5. If the cookie dough mixture is too firm, add a splash or two of milk (1-2 tablespoons) until it reaches the desired consistency. Be very careful not to add too much milk here; it will become too liquidy and will no longer resemble the texture of true cookie dough.
  6. At this point, you can transfer your cookie dough into a storage container for chilling or you can enjoy as is. Chilling the dough will give it a firmer texture.
  7. Scoop the cookie dough with an ice cream scoop or spoon and enjoy in a bowl along with any topping you wish.
  8. Chow down!

There are multiple ways you can make cookie dough without chocolate chips. Truth be told, there are a number of interesting recipes out there for this, including red velvet edible cookie dough, snickerdoodle cookie dough, and so much more. Virtually any cookie dough that doesn’t have chocolate chips in it could be considered a chip-less snack, but you may be at a loss for how exactly to approach these recipes.

Let’s face it. The traditional way is often the easiest. We all know how to go to the store, grab a few chocolate chips, and toss them in cookie dough. But sometimes, when your tastebuds are craving something a little different, you may wish to sample something fresh and new.

Unlike most recipes out there, I’ve decided to include my own “naked” version of an edible cookie dough recipe. Why? Because I realize there aren’t a lot of them out there. And before you say that it’s because no one wants to eat it, I need to stop you. My mom was one who loved chocolate chip cookies, but for her, less was more. In fact, she once exclaimed that she wished there was a chocolate chip cookie out there that had no chocolate chips at all!

I rest my case.

Thus, I do believe that there are some who secretly love the chocolate chip cookie dough base, but desperately wish there was something out there that didn’t actually include chocolate chips. But fear not… I’ve got a delightful “naked” cookie dough recipe headed your way that should satisfy your craving.

Oh, and don’t forget to stick around for the second recipe. It includes everything you love about sugar cookie dough but with rainbow sprinkles thrown in for color and texture. Enjoy!

Note: Before making any edible cookie dough recipe, it is imperative that you first heat treat your flour so that you don’t introduce bacteria into your cookie dough. Sadly, raw flour can be as much a threat to your health as raw egg. Thus, it is crucial that you kill the bacteria on your flour before getting started.

Need to know how? I’ve included the step-by-step process in both recipes. You’re welcome!

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Directions

  1. Begin by heat-treating your flour. To do so, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread your flour evenly over a lined baking sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes. Be very careful not to burn. Allow the flour to cool completely before proceeding with this edible cookie dough recipe. Set aside.
  2.  Begin beating your butter with your sugar until it is light, fluffy, and pale.
  3. With a rubber spatula or spoon, stir in your vanilla extract and cinnamon, if using.
  4. To this, carefully sift your flour along with the salt and stir to combine.
  5. If the cookie dough mixture is too firm, add a splash or two of milk (1-2 tablespoons) until it reaches the desired consistency. Be very careful not to add too much milk here; it will become too liquidy and will no longer resemble the texture of true cookie dough.
  6. At this point, you can transfer your cookie dough into a storage container for chilling or you can enjoy as is. Chilling the dough will give it a firmer texture.
  7. Scoop the cookie dough with an ice cream scoop or spoon and enjoy in a bowl along with any topping you wish.
  8. Chow down!

Here’s another variation you might enjoy:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, softened
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons of rainbow sprinkles

Directions

  1. Begin by heat-treating your flour. To do so, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread your flour evenly over a lined baking pan and bake for 7-10 minutes. Be very careful not to burn. Allow the flour to cool completely before proceeding with this edible cookie dough recipe. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine your sugar with the butter using a hand mixer until it is light and fluffy.
  3. To this, add your vanilla extract.
  4. Gently sift in your flour along with the salt until the cookie dough reaches a thick consistency.
  5. From here, add 1-2 tablespoons of milk until it reaches the desired consistency.
  6. Add 2 spoonfuls of sprinkles, and fold them carefully.
  7. Add your cookie dough to an airtight container to be kept in the fridge, or dig into the cookie dough immediately.

Keep your edible cookie dough stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

You may also freeze the dough. If you choose this method, you can expect the cookie dough to last about 2 months at best quality.

While I’ve only mentioned a couple of chocolate chipless cookie dough recipes here, there truly are a plethora of ingredients you could choose from. Pick whichever chip-less mix-ins suits you, just be sure not to eat raw cookie dough from a normal bakeable recipe or it could spell trouble for your health.

I hope all you chipless cookie dough rebels enjoyed these edible cookie dough recipes. Until next time!

FAQs

Can I use chocolate pieces instead of chocolate chips?

You can totally use chocolate pieces instead of chocolate chips in chocolate chip cookies or edible cookie dough. Not only this, but these could also pair well with typical edible sugar cookie dough for a fun and unexpected twist.

What can I use instead of chocolate chips in cookies?

You have many options outside of the typical chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips for cookies. Try rainbow sprinkles, toffee bits, a dash of cinnamon, walnuts, almonds, peanut butter chips, caramel baking chips, M&Ms, cheesecake, and other fun and daring mix-ins to get your creative juices flowing!

Is it safe to eat sugar cookie dough?

You should not eat sugar cookie dough unless the store-bought package specifically states that you can or your cookie dough is made from an edible sugar cookie dough recipe. If your cookie dough contains eggs or doesn’t contain heat-treated flour, you should definitely forgo eating sugar cookie dough.

How can you get a chewy chocolate chip cookie without chocolate chips?

You can achieve a chewy chocolate chip cookie without chocolate chips by adding an extra egg yolk for a chewer texture. Still, you may need to add a tablespoon or two additional flour to compensate for the extra liquid and lack of mix-ins to achieve it.

Is Pillsbury cookie dough safe to eat raw?

Yes, Pillsbury cookie dough is safe to eat raw only if the packaging says so. Pillsbury has released a new line of cookie dough that includes dough that is safe to eat in raw form. Look carefully at the label before indulging! 

Can’t I Just Eat Raw Cookie Dough?

In most cases, you should not eat raw cookie dough. I say in “most” cases because there are cookie dough brands out there now, like Pillsbury, that are actually marketed as being safe to eat raw.
Still, by and large, you should refrain from eating regular cookie dough raw. Why? Because it contains raw flour and raw eggs, which deems it not safe to eat. While it may be super convenient to go about baking cookie dough and eating raw cookie dough at the same time, you’ll likely quickly regret the decision once your tummy rumbles.
Add to that the fact that you could acquire food poisoning and life-threatening bacteria such as E.coli and Salmonella, and suddenly eating raw cookie dough doesn’t sound as appealing anymore. Thus, I recommend simply sticking to recipes such as edible low sugar cookie dough or baked cookie dough to get your fix without worry of getting sick.
