I’m siiiiick. If you follow Willow Bird Baking on Facebook or Twitter (you do, right?), you’ve probably heard me whining about it lately (okay, maybe this isn’t the best way to encourage you to follow).

It started with a sore throat and has turned into a beastly, phlegmatic ogre of a cold that has taken up residence in my chest and commenced hanging draperies and such. I have protested this development with various hot teas, soups, and my favorite home remedy suggested by readers: complaining.

Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter!

Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter!

I know my students are to blame for this plague! They’ve been dropping like flies recently. A wave of 6th graders was sick early in the year, and then 7th grade took a nose dive. At one point almost half the class was home in bed, weeping at the thought of missing their fantastic language arts class and writing pickup essays in fond remembrance of healthier days. That’s what students do when they’re home sick, right?

Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter!

I can’t stay home until I’m better, but I do tend to baby myself when I’m sick. Take, for instance, the vat of spicy crab chowder and loaf of sourdough bread I allowed myself to eat yesterday under the guise of “feeding a cold” (not that I starve a fever or anything).

And I’m not even going to mention the amount of this cookie dough I consumed over the weekend. I’m sure cookie dough has, like, vitamins and stuff.

Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter!

If nothing else, cookie dough is good for the soul. As a child, my idea of adulthood was finally getting to sit down with a tube of technically-unsafe-to-eat-before-baking cookie dough, slice it open, and eat the whole thing — no parental scolding involved.

And now, look how far I’ve come: this weekend I made not one, but three kinds of cookie dough! Not only that, but they’re all eggless and therefore actually safe to eat*.

Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter!

Chocolate chip cookie dough recipes are popular and easy to find, but safe-to-eat sugar cookie dough is a bit more elusive. I developed the recipe below from a regular sugar cookie recipe. But the dough that really takes the cake (literally!) is the Cake Batter Cookie Dough.

Jessica at How Sweet It Is has been going cake batter crazy lately, and I’m loving it! Inspired, I decided to create a rich cookie dough that tastes like buttery yellow cake batter, complete with sprinkles. There’s just something wonderful about food that tastes like a birthday party.

Oh, and are you wondering about those truffles in the photos? Stay tuned — I’ll tell you all about those soon, along with yet another awesome use for cookie dough!

So, in summary: I’m sick. My students are sick. We’re all sick. Eat cookie dough.

Chocolate chip cookie dough you can eat on a spoon!
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (a few people have found this to be too much; if you want, just add a pinch and increase to taste. I add the full 1/2 teaspoon and enjoy it!)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (again, you might want to add this a teaspoon at a time to taste. I add the full tablespoon and enjoy it!)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • water
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the flour, salt, vanilla and chocolate chips. Add water one tablespoon at a time (stirring between each) until the dough reaches cookie dough consistency.

Safe-to-Eat Cake Batter Cookie Dough
 
Prep time
Total time
 
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sprinkles
  • 4-8 tablespoons water
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes until light, fluffy, and pale yellow. Mix in salt, flour, cake mix, sprinkles, and vanilla. Add water one tablespoon at a time, mixing after each, until you reach cookie dough consistency.

*Note: Since posting this recipe, scientisty types have also found that raw flour — just like produce — can carry E.coli if it’s been contaminated with it. This article suggests that the risk is even smaller than the tiny risk of getting Salmonella from eating cookie dough with raw eggs, but it’s still there and I wanted you to know about it. At least eggless cookie dough is safer — and no reason to waste the eggs when you just want to eat it with a spoon, right?!

    Ooo girl I hope you feel better! I have a feeling that cookie dough has antimicrobial properties. Somewhere in there. It must.

    My mother still yells at me for eating cookie dough. And cake batter. And cupcake batter. basically she calls me and starts the conversation by yelling at me to stop eating raw eggs because most of the time when she calls, I am knee deep in a batter of some kind.

    I love these! Now I can eat cookie dough self righteously and totally virtuously and salmonella-free!

    funny coincidence, just before reading this post, my 3yr old son and I made ANZAC slice (an Aussie thing with golden syrup, melted butter, oats, coconut, brown sugar and plain flour) which is our favourite “raw” dough to make…its supposed to make biscuits but my laziness get the better of me and I make it into a slice! Delicious raw or cooked!

      This is true; there’s also a low risk of salmonella even with other eggs purchased in the U.S. (especially with careful handling and if you wash the shells). However, if you’re making it just to eat (or to use in a recipe), why waste the eggs?

    My little brother asked if I could make ‘cookie cupcakes’ and after a bit of pondering, I think it may be possible. I had this recipe bookmarked since the kid looooves raw cookie dough so I’m thinking vanilla cupcakes filled with the chocolate chip dough and iced with vanilla buttercream with some chocolate chips on top. I can’t decide if it’s a gross or a genius idea (not a fan of raw dough!) but either way thanks for sparking the idea with this post!

      Hi Sarah! I think it’ll last quite awhile! I’d feel comfortable leaving it in the fridge for a week. After that, just to be safe, I might freeze it — it’ll last months in there, and you can just leave it in the fridge to defrost when you want some. Hope your daughter loves it!

      Hi Sam — can you tell me which you tried and what the issue was? I’d love to help you troubleshoot this. When made correctly, there’s not really a distinction between the flavor of these doughs and your average cookie dough, so if you like that, you should love this! Give me some more details if you get a chance.

        I made the sugar cookie dough and followed the instructions but it tasted both too sweet and too flour-y at the same time. But upon adding more water, it just got thinner without losing the flour taste.

          Thanks for letting me know. The sugar cookie dough was developed exactly from a sugar cookie recipe (removing the leaveners and replacing the egg, neither of which add much flavor to the dough itself — the egg does add some richness).

          Sounds like your taste preferences might be better suited to a different sugar cookie recipe, however. You might try adding more butter, since it sounds like that’s the taste you’re missing out on (sugar cookie dough tastes buttery, sweet, and yes, floury!) You might also begin working from a sugar cookie dough you’ve used and enjoyed in the past to create your proportions.

          Hope that helps!

            I tried adding more butter but it didn’t seem to help much. I eat cookie dough all the time, which is why I was interested in a safe-to-eat version. Sugar cookie dough is one of my favorites but I just didn’t seem to get a familiar flavor. I’ll try again. Thanks for your response.

      December 7, 2011 at 7:20 pm (5 years ago)

      Hi Sandra! Not a stupid question, but no, this dough will not work for making actual cookies because it has no binder (that’s the job eggs do — or flax seed in eggless cookies). You can eat as much dough as your heart desires and your stomach allows. If you’d like to make more or less dough because you have varying numbers of folks eating the dough with you, feel free to scale the recipe up or down as needed.

I also divided out about a third of it and added a tiny bit of some coconut extract I found in the cabinet. It added a nice touch, but then again I do really love coconut.

This recipe was made from a regular sugar cookie dough recipe and lots of folks adore it, but some people have different tastes about the flavors they like to be the most pronounced in their cookies (and doughs!). For instance, the floury “unbaked” flavor in cake batter and cookie dough is what I love so much!

      To find a sugar cookie dough you love, try getting a sugar cookie recipe you know you love and removing the eggs and leaveners, adding water to substitute.

      Emily, the water is to bring it to cookie dough-like consistency. You add it 1 tablespoon at a time, though, so as to get it where you want it.

      The chocolate chip cookie dough is a regular cookie dough recipe minus the eggs, which impart negligible flavor. Therefore if you enjoy regular CC cookie dough, you should’ve enjoyed this recipe — unless it was made wrong, of course (some of my students have done this, and upon fixing their mistakes, have enjoyed it — I’d be happy to help you troubleshoot the process). I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it, but perhaps you can think of a nicer way to express yourself in the future. Tsk tsk.

      I made the chocolate chip cookie dough recipe recently along with my home made vanilla ice cream (which is very rich!). Before I started the ice cream I rolled out the dough and cut it into roughly 1/2″ squares then rolled them into small balls of dough. After the ice cream was finished, but before freezing it thoroughly, I stirred in the dough! This made the most AMAZING homemade chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream my family has ever had. Now my teens and my wife pester me to make it about twice a month (which I flatly refuse to do lest we burn out on something so yummy!)

      Thank you VERY much for sharing your wonderful ideas with us all and please ignore those people who are obviously from a newer generation that has not learned that, “If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing!”

      Good to know you skipped the salt and enjoyed it — a couple people said it was too much for them. Folks might want to start with just a little and add it to taste if they worry.

      AND YES, you can eat the whole thing! I can’t promise medicinal benefits, but I bet there’ll at least be a nice placebo effect πŸ˜‰ And you can store it in the fridge or, if it’ll be over a week or so, stick it in the freezer.

      They’re actually not dips — they’re cookie doughs that are made to eat from a spoon. I’ve seen them pinned on pinterest as dips, but they might actually be too thick for that. You could thin them to the consistency you want by adding a bit more water, though, and use graham crackers, pretzels, animal crackers, etc. to dip in them. Hope you enjoy it!

      Oh, Deja, I’m surprised they came out at all — these cookie doughs are just for eating raw with a spoon. They don’t include any binder (like eggs or flaxseed) to hold them together as actual cookies, so I don’t recommend baking them. But hey, if you enjoyed them, that’s what counts! πŸ™‚

I’ve been wondering if there’s a way to toast the flour or cook it somehow before using it, but I think flour can explode in the oven, so I won’t try that way for sure!

    I just made the chocolate chip cookie dough. I’m pregnant and craving it. I used 2 teaspoons of vanilla and 2 dashes of salt, and everything else by the recipe. It’s really sweet to me, but I normally don’t like super sweet things anyway. Should I not have changed it? What can I do to make it less sweet? Less sugar? Thanks for your recipe and your help!

      Hi Sally! I don’t think decreasing the vanilla would make it more sweet, but decreasing the salt might’ve made it seem sweeter. Yes, feel free to try reducing the sugar to suit your tastes! It’ll be sweet no matter what, since it’s cookie dough, of course, but it might help!

    Hi,
    I’ve seen so many raw cookie dough recipes around lately & they all look so tasty. My concern is the raw flour which many yrs ago was believed to cause the salmonella outbreak. Is there any way to cook the flour before using it? Most professional online sites recommend against using raw flour, so are there any suggestions since these look too yummy to pass up?

      Hi Tiffany! The outbreak with raw flour was actually e.coli — still dangerous! If you scroll up through the comments you’ll see some discussion about it, and there’s also a link in the post itself to an article about raw flour to help you assess the risk and make the best choice for you. The fact is that there IS some risk associated with it, but not as much as with raw eggs.

It was super easy to make and definitely cheered me up. I never get to eat raw cookie dough because I tend to get sick really easily. This tasted just as good. I made a couple adjustments to your chocolate chip recipe, and then added some reeces pieces too. I wrote about it on my blog! Thanks for posting. I’ll definitely keep making this!

    Sitting here, reading your post, and thought …. hmmm…. I should share my cream cheese cake cookie recipe with you. You could EASILY make this eggless. However, it makes quite a bit and I’m not quite sure if you’d want to cut it. The leftover dough refrigerates beautifully! This is a very comforting as a dough and I have a hard time NOT eating it raw!

    1- 8oz package cream cheese, room temp
    1/2 stick unsalted butter, room temp
    1 tsp vanilla (optional, however, i usually DOUBLE the amount)
    1 large egg, room temp (I figure this could easily be omitted and replaced with water for consistency)
    1 box cake mix (any flavor, however, red velvet is DEVINE!)

    Cream butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla and egg (again, replace with 2-3 tablespoons water if making eggless). Add cake mix a little at a time, making sure to mix completely until its all blended in.

    Can add in candy, nuts, flavored chips if desired. Use no more than 1 cup.

    Just thought I’d share. (: Enjoy!

    For those complaining that this is not a “safe” recipe keep in mind that the author does mention in a final note that there is still some risk involved. No matter what we do in life there is always risk! Even with allegedly “properly prepared” foods illness occurs. The risk of getting e. coli from flour consumed raw is actually far lower than the risk of dying in an automobile related accident, or falling down in your shower. It seems most (not all) of the comments left here in regard to there still being danger are more likely those types who can’t stand that others are taking a risk. It’s a simple solution: If you feel this is unsafe you need not prepare and consume it. Let the rest of us make our own educated choice, thank you.

    As for the recipes themselves, bravo!

      Hi Jacqueline, It won’t work to bake them without eggs (which bind the dough while cooking). This recipe is just for eating raw. Hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

    Using raw flour in your recipe is dangerous. Even Nestle has changed their recipe. – “Treating raw ingredients to reduce pathogens earned big headlines when NestlΓ© USA, Solon, OH, changed specs for its popular NestlΓ© Toll House refrigerated cookie doughs to now use heat-treated flour. In 2009, the company voluntarily recalled its dough products after an investigation by the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported a rash of E. coli 0157:H7 illnesses may have been related to consumption of raw cookie dough.”

      Jane, if you’ll notice, this issue has been repeatedly addressed in the comments and noted in the post itself. Folks will need to make their own decision about whether they will enjoy this recipe, but have been fully informed. Thanks.

    Thank you so much! Now I don’t have to worry about getting yelled at for eating cookie dough. Lol but I still found myself snacking on the ingredients while making this.

    THANK you for this recipe! I teach kindergarten and we are learning about ‘how to’ books. We talked a lot, and wrote about, ‘how to make a pizza’ this week. To finish our week on a sweet note, my class will be making pizzas…cookie pizzas! I was going to just have them decorate sugar cookies but then stumbled upon your recipe and now they will actually get to ‘roll out the dough’ to make their pizzas (and then add ‘sauce’ (icing), ‘cheese’ (coconut) and ‘toppings’ (M&M’s)! I am going to blog about it and am going to hyperlink to your post so that others can get the recipe as well! THANKS AGAIN….I can’t wait to see their faces in the am!

      This is eggless cookie dough made to be eaten raw. It will not bake properly; I do not recommend baking it.

    I found this recipe when I realized that I have no eggs and I really wanted to bake some cookies. Made the sugar cookie recipe, and it’s delicious. However, I overcooked them and they are quite hard, good for dunking,but otherwise over baked. What temp do you set the oven and how long do you bake these cookies?

    I made the sugar cookie dough yesterday and oh my goodness it was SOOOO good! Just what I needed! So good that I decided to make it again today and get funky by trying to add a few things: I mashed in some strawberry yoghurt that I accidentally stuck in the freezer instead of refrigerator yesterday and also added some cocoa powder, SO GOOD!!!! This recipe is a life saver, thank you so much πŸ™‚

      I’m not sure what you mean about rising. This dough doesn’t have any leaveners and won’t rise. It comes out the texture of regular cookie dough. To make truffles, just roll into balls, refrigerate until they’re less sticky, and dip.

    I LOVED the sugar cookie dough! I substituted the water with 2% milk and it still worked! So delicious, but not all at once! It is even as mold able as the real thing! Thank you! I now have a guilty pleasure snack! <3333

      The moisture of dough will always depend on your environment, which is why the recipe specifies to add water 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach dough-like consistency.

    I’ve made the chocolate chip recipe as written numerous times but today I wanted the traditional cookie taste. This is too heavy on the brown sugar IMHO. But if you split the sugar equally between brown and white, it’s perfect!
