Edible Cookie Dough

Edible Cookie Dough, is my favorite "go to" surprise for my high school and college kids during final exam time. I have been known to show up on the door steps of some of my church youth group kids and hand them little jars of edible cookie dough and a spoon to help them power through their study sessions.

(and for my own college aged children who may read this and protest that I don't make it for them, there is a very good reason! You chose to go to school nearly 2000 miles away from home! Cookie dough surprises are "off the table"! But I love and adore you all!)

I usually stick with the classics of chocolate chip cookie dough and peanut butter cookie dough with mini reeses cups mixed in, but my oldest son loves white chocolate macadamia nut with cranberry cookie dough so I will include that one for you as well.

I love to keep a container of this rolled up into small balls in the fridge for mixing into ice cream too!

The key to making edible cookie dough is to simply leave out the eggs, baking soda and baking powder. So you can make any of your cookie recipes in to edible dough, but I'll share a few to get you started.  Reminder (and you would not believe how many people will still ask this question) these dough recipes are not meant for baking into cookies, but for eating the dough.

  1. Thank you for the recipes but I must admit, raw cookie dough is something that I never really cared for, but I guess something like this would be great as a dip for graham crackers and the like.
