Oreo Cookie Dough – Easy Cookies and Cream Recipe!

Published Categorized as Journal, Baking Tagged

We all love cookie dough and we all love Oreos, so it makes perfect sense to combine the two and make an edible cookie dough that tastes just like Oreos. While it may seem pretty bizarre to purposely make edible Oreo cookie dough when you could instead just make Oreo cookies, you must remember that there is a kid in our hearts that would always try to eat some of the raw cookie dough when we were younger. This cookie dough is completely edible and safe to eat and is also filled with Oreo crumbs and chocolate chips.

While you may be under the assumption that making edible Oreo cookie dough is difficult or time-consuming, you will be pleased to know that you are wrong! The edible cookie dough recipe is super easy to follow and requires rather simplistic ingredients.

As it is edible cookie dough, there is no cooking time and there is no need for a baking tray as we will not bake cookies. However, a baking sheet is still handy to have as it is a great non-stick surface for you to place your dough.

The ingredients you will need are:

  • 1 cup Granulated sugar
  • ½ cup Unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 ½ All-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Oreo cookies (Around 10 cookies, depending on preference)

While the ingredients may look like a lot, they are all quite simple, and other than the Orea cookies, are probably already in your cupboard or pantry. Of course with a list like this, there are quite a few substitutions you can make. For example, the all-purpose flour can be wheat flour, coconut flour, or any other type of flour of your choice as long as it is still all-purpose.

The sugar does not have to be granulated and can be brown sugar instead. However, this will slightly change the flavor of the dough. As long as you keep that in mind, you can change the sugar.

The milk and butter can also be changed. The butter should stay as unsalted because there is already salt added to the recipe, yet if you only have salted butter, use it. The milk can be of any fat percentage you like. If you want to use full-fat milk, you can. Same with skimmed and semi-skimmed milk.

As for the vanilla extract and Oreo cookies, they can be changed but it is not recommended. The vanilla extract flavor pairs really well with the whole recipe and is really helpful for balancing out the flavor. The Oreo cookies can be swapped out for an unbranded option if you choose, but none of them really have the same flavor in my opinion.

Preparing

When it comes to preparing your ingredients, there is not too much to do. While other recipes will have you commit to chores that are passively carried out for over 24 hours, this recipe requires, at most, 10 minutes of your time.

  1. Firstly, you will want to pre-bake the flour so that it has a nicer texture once mixed with the rest of the ingredients. This can be done by pouring your flour onto a parchment paper-lined baking tray and baking the flour for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  2. Other than the flour, the only other preparations needed are making sure that all of the ingredients, except the milk, are at room temperature. This is really important for the overall texture as it will result in the dough being a lot fluffier and less dense. The butter is by far the most important ingredient to have at room temperature, so try to remember that while you are baking the flour.

As you have also noticed, there is no baking powder or baking soda as they are not needed. While we are not baking the dough, we do not need the baking powder for anything texture related.

Making

As for making the edible Oreo cookie dough, it is really easy.

  1. You are going to need a large mixing bowl, a hand mixer/whisk, and a silicone spatula. If you do not have a spatula, anything blunt and similar in shape will work. It is for folding ingredients together later on so that the texture is not ruined.
  2. You will want to mix your sugar and butter together in your mixing bowl until it is combined and creamy. The volume of ingredients you put in should noticeably increase as the air gets mixed into your butter mixture. This is where using room-temperature butter comes in handy as this process is much easier and far more effective than using cold butter.
  3. After your butter and sugar have turned into a creamy delight, add your vanilla extract, salt, and milk to the bowl. Mix all of these until they are properly combined and the texture starts to be more consistent. You want it to be a single mass with no lumps of unmixed ingredients.
  4. Once this is done, you will now add your flour to the bowl. It is best to do this a little at a time, just doing a quarter at a time makes it significantly easier than adding the whole bunch at once. Again, keep mixing it until the whole thing is fluffy and creamy again. Look out for clumps of flour as they are pesky and will try to hide from you.
  5. Finally, once the flour is all incorporated you will want to add your Oreos to the mix! Obviously, you cannot add whole Oreos, so you will have to chop them. This does not have to be a fine chop as it actually improves texture to have quite unpredictable chunks of Oreo in the dough. Just roughly chop your Oreos with a large knife. Depending on how much dough you have, choose your amount of Oreos wisely. You do not want to have too many Oreos in the dough as they will dry it out but on the other hand, having too few Oreos will make it disappointing.
  6. When it comes to actually adding the Oreos, you will need your silicone spatula or a similar utensil. The reasoning for this is that we need to fold the Oreos into the mix. If we just hand mix them, they will be crushed up and not as fun to eat, and if we mix them by stirring them – we will destroy the airy fluffy texture we have. The best thing to do is fold the chopped Oreos into the middle of the bowl until they are all separated and spread out evenly.

Eating

Now that you have all of the boring stages finished, it is finally time to eat your creation.

There isn’t really a proper way to eat cookie dough. Just tuck in if you want to, or grab a spoon and eat it that way. A nice way to eat the cookie dough is to cut it into smaller chunks and add it to ice cream.

Depending on the ice cream you choose, you can have loads of different combinations. For example, mint Oreos if you pair them with mint ice cream. You will still taste the great Oreo flavor from your crushed Oreos while also having it complemented by the ice cream.

Storing

When it comes to storage, the instructions are very simple.

For the most part, you are going to want to store your Oreo cream edible cookie dough in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Anything past this and the texture will be bad and the cookie dough will also be deemed unsafe to eat. If you are looking for more long-term storage, place the raw cookie dough in a freezer-safe container and let it stay in the freezer for up to a month. Just make sure to thaw it in the fridge overnight before trying to eat it.

Crushed Oreo pieces are much tougher than you would think when they are frozen, look after your teeth!

Oreo Cookie Dough

The main reason that cookie dough is unsafe to eat raw is because of the raw flour in it. A lot of people think it is to do with raw eggs, and it partially is. But the main reason you do not want to eat raw cookie dough is that the raw flour can contain germs such as E. coli. This can contaminate the flour grains while it is still in the field.

Most steps taken before selling the flour completely miss terminating germs, even if the flour is bleached.

After making an edible Oreo cookie dough, you may be wondering if you could place it on a baking sheet and make some cookies. Well, the main answer is that technically yes, you can.

However, there are no leavening agents in the ingredients so the resulting cookie would just not be as you would expect it to be. Both the flavor and texture would be weird. However, if you want to try it for yourself – there is no harm in it!
