What’s Trending Now: Edible Cookie Dough

By Lauren Scott, Arizona Farm Bureau Intern

When I was little, my mom would let me lick the bowl clean after she had mixed cake batter, brownie batter, or cookie dough. Most kids I know licked the bowl clean, too when their parents made sweet treats.

I, for one, almost like the dough better than I like the finished product that is cookies. So when I heard that dough was being created with the specific intent of eating it raw, I was intrigued. This sweet stuff is made for eating raw, without the possibility of getting food poisoning! The consistency is exactly like cookie dough for baking and tastes just as good.

It is easy to make at home, and the flavors are customizable, just like your favorite cookie! I usually go for the classic chocolate chip, but you can make mint chocolate chip, confetti, double chocolate, red velvet, M&M, and any other flavor your heart desires. Below are my top four favorite flavors:

Chocolate Chip:

  • ½ cup softened, unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Mix all the ingredients together, and you’ve got my favorite flavor of edible cookie dough!

Red Velvet:

  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup of red velvet cake mix
  • 1 ½ cup of flour
  • 4 – 8 tablespoons of water

Cream the butter and sugar together, then mix in the rest of the ingredients. (Add water one tablespoon at a time until it is the consistency you want).

Snickerdoodle

  • ½ cup softened, unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cream the butter and sugar together. Stir in the vanilla extract and milk. Stir in the salt, flour, and cinnamon.

Peanut Butter

  • ¾ cup of all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup softened, unsalted butter
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • Dash of salt
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix everything together in a mixing bowl and you’re good to go!
