Best ever, easy peasy, edible chocolate chip cookie dough

I may or may not have an infatuation with raw chocolate chip cookie dough. (Hint: I do.) In fact, the only reason I make chocolate chip cookies is so I can have a spoonful (or ten) of the gooey, delicious dough.

Excuse me while I drool. ;)

Excuse me while I drool. 😉

Every time I sneak some of the delectable dough, the voice of my home economics teacher comes into my head: “If you eat raw cookie dough, you will get salmonella!” In fact, there are an estimated 1.4 million reported cases of salmonella in the USA each year, of which 500-1,000 cases result in death. So I guess eating raw eggs might not be a fantastic idea after all.

In an effort to make a healthier example for my kids (and to avoid becoming a statistic), I decided to try edible chocolate chip cookie.  A simple Google search brings up over 300,000 results.  Pinterest is filled with oodles and oodles of recipes.  My husband and I tried out a few different recipes and couldn’t help but feel like they had missed the mark somewhere.  I wanted something quintessential; something that tasted “Nestle Tollhouse”, mouth-watering good.

And so, after trial and error, I have created what I feel is the very best, edible, easy peasy, raw chocolate chip cookie dough. My kids would agree. 😉 Now, keep in mind the fact that I am NOT a cook/chef/culinary expert.  I’m just an avid fan of all things cookie dough, on a mission to spread the love. Here you go!

Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

1 stick (1/2 cup) softened butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
White milk
Flour
Chocolate chips

Combine butter, sugars and salt in a medium sized mixing bowl until well-blended.  Add in vanilla.  Slowly add in the flour (I started with approximately 3/4 cup). Add in a couple of tablespoons of milk. <<Keep adding a small amount of flour and/or milk until you reach the consistency you desire.  I prefer my cookie dough to be a bit firmer so I added more flour and less milk (about 1 1/2 cups flour and 1/4-1/2 cup milk). If you want your dough to be “gooier”, add more milk and less flour. You can’t really mess it up.>> Mix until smooth. Add in as many chocolate chips as you’d like!  You can enjoy the dough right away or let it chill in the fridge to firm up a bit.

Let me know what you think! 🙂

  1. Looks so good! I always thought my husband was deprived because he’s literally never had raw cookie dough in his live. His mother convinced him that even one lick would get him horribly ill. Poor kid. This I’m sure he’d love to try!

  2. That’s the only reason I make ANY baked goods, to devour the dough!! I’m definitely going to have to try this. The recipe I have is awful!
