Let’s talk cookie dough. EDIBLE COOKIE DOUGH. Personally I believe it is the best part of cookies. Our entire lives we’ve been told not eat eat raw cookie dough. But cookie dough lovers like myself have lived on the wild side. We’ve taken cookie dough risks, we’ve licked the spoons (and bowls) and we’ve been cookie dough rebels.
Then 2017 showed up and EDIBLE COOKIE DOUGH SHOPS LIKE COOKIE DOUGH CAFE SPRING UP. READY TO EAT COOKIE DOUGH IS NOW AN ACTUAL THING. Clearly dreams do come true. Finally a raw food diet I can stick to.

Edible Cookie Dough For Sale
There was a Shark Tank Cookie Dough episode that featured Cookie Dough Cafe, which appears to have kicked off the cookie dough trend. Cookie Dough Cafe sells pre-made, ready to eat cookie dough in supermarkets.
Perhaps I should say in some supermarkets, however not within a 50 mile search of my zip code. Nonetheless, some fortunate folks are picking up that cookie dough along with their paper towels and lettuce. Those lucky ducks can have their Cookie Dough Cafe, but we can have homemade cookie dough.
Ready To Eat Cookie Dough
But it’s not just ready to eat cookie dough in stores that’s happening, there are actual cookie dough restaurants. I repeat RESTAURANTS THAT DISH OUT COOKIE DOUGH exist. In other words, there are places and people who are scooping out cookie dough like ice cream.
Cookie Do NYC sells cookie dough confections that are so popular that their website has a line and closing policy. To rephrase that, it’s so popular there are rules about standing in a line. And did I mention you can get your cookie dough in a cone? Props to that brilliant idea.
How To Make Edible Cookie Dough
Since don’t have an edible cookie dough shop here in Phoenix and I can’t find anywhere near me that sells Cookie Dough Cafe products, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. It’s time for homemade edible cookie dough people. Here we have homemade cookie dough in a cone and edible cookie dough in a container.
Cookie dough in my kitchen, then yours. No line standing policy is needed. However that may change if you have homemade cookie dough loving neighbors and the word gets out.
For fun I added sprinkles and as a result made UNICORN COOKIE DOUGH. Now we’ve got cookie dough so beyond trendy I can barely stand it!
Sprinkle Cookie Dough
If you want your cookie dough to be filled with rainbows and unicorns, then Sweets & Treats Boutique is perfect for that purpose. They are my long time source for cupcake wrappers, and for that reason I was excited when they started selling sprinkles and sprinkle mixes.
Custom sprinkle mixes are available, for example they made this mix to match my website colors. Cookie dough and sprinkles at the same time, undoubtably a great combo!
Safe Cookie Dough
Shall we address the elephant in the room, or in other words, the computer screen? Food safety is always an issue. To put it another way the question of is it safe to eat raw cookie dough?
I’m not going to tell you that any method or product is without doubt going to make your cookie dough 100% safe. For me, I’m okay with egg-free cookie dough, nonetheless with any food there’s always a risk.
Consequently, if you make and eat cookie dough, you do it at your own risk. That is to say I’m only deciding what’s okay for my family. By the same token, you have to decide what is considered safe for yours.
Eating Raw Cookie Dough
Until recently we were told eggs were the concern with raw cookie dough. Then recently there were some issues with flour in the same way. That is to say that you are going to have to go with YOUR comfort level.
There are no eggs in this cookie dough recipe, however there is flour. Many people are now heat treating flour to kill any potential bacteria. I’m not certain that the DIY version of heat treating flour is 100% safe, nevertheless it’s an option for some.
For that reason, the cafes serving cookie dough and ready to eat cookie doughs are typically using professionally heat treated flours. The only heat-treated flour I’ve been able to find available to consumers in smaller amounts is from Honeyville.
Cookie Dough Without Eggs or Flour
Another option is to skip the flour and but use rolled oats. The great thing about this option is that in addition to removing the flour, you can make gluten free edible cookie dough if you need to. Although I wouldn’t eat a bowl of raw oats, a spoonful or two is fine for me.
Is Cookie Dough Safe To Eat
To repeat, you must decide on your own what you are comfortable with feeding your family. In summary, I’m not a food safety expert, just a girl making cookie dough and tossing some sprinkles in it.
While we are talking openly and honestly, the giant scoop of cookie dough in a cone thing is almost always going to be too much for one person. Dough in a cone is probably enough to make ten cookies. Cookie dough is VERY rich, therefore a spoonful is pretty much the perfect serving size in my book.
These cookie dough cones are perfect for sharing with six of your friends. Consequently, cookie dough parties should probably be a thing.
