Got a craving for cookie dough? When your sweet tooth kicks in and you don’t feel like baking, here’s a super quick fix to indulge in! This edible cookie dough craving fix is the perfect snack!
For whatever reason, RAW cookie dough is the one thing that I crave when I want something sweet. Unfortunately, it’s not exactly safe to consume raw eggs frequently found in the dough, so my sons and I came up with this delicious substitute!
What about the concerns of consuming Raw Flour?
Raw flour has made the news a few times over the years with concerns that it could potentially carry bacteria. Raw flour has been linked to cases of E. Coli. While this is extremely rare, those with immune issues or the very young or elderly may not like to consume raw flour at all, just in case!
Why take chances at all?
A better solution would be to heat the flour to an internal temperature of 160°F to ensure that any bacteria is killed off prior to adding it to your raw cookie dough recipe. To do this, simply measure the amount of flour needed for the recipe and place it in a glass dish (a coffee mug works great) and put in the microwave.
Cook the flour for 1 minute, stirring every 15 seconds. Let it cool prior to adding the other ingredients.
