Ingredients Needed for this Recipe

The ingredients needed to make edible cookie dough without eggs.
  • Butter or Margarine- If you decide to use unsalted butter be sure to add a little bit of salt to the dough. A 1/4 teaspoon should do.
  • Brown Sugar & White Sugar- Adding both kinds of sugar will give you the same flavor as regular cookie dough you would make for a chocolate chip cookie recipe.
  • All Purpose Flour- See the notes in the recipe card to see how to treat uncooked flour.

See recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.

Variations/Substitutions

Want to change up the flavor? Try different add-in ingredients! Use mini M&M’s, chopped nuts, a chopped candy bar, dried fruit or a different kind of chocolate chips, like dark chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or white chocolate chips for a fun twist.

1. Begin by cooking the flour in the microwave {or oven}.  This will help protect you against any bacteria since it is considered a raw ingredient.  To do this, microwave it in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute and 15 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds.  Allow it to cool and then begin with step 2.

2. Combine the butter, both sugars and vanilla in a large bowl and combine using a hand held mixer {or by hand} on medium-high speed until it is smooth and creamy.  Add the flour that has cooled from step 1 and combine until completely incorporated.

Expert Tips

  • Use quality ingredients. Since this dough isn’t baked you will want to get as much flavor as possible. Real vanilla extract instead of imitation is a great start.
  • Use a hand mixer or stand mixer. To get the butter and sugar incorporated, it will take a few minutes.
  • Don’t skip microwaving the flour if you are worried about a risk of bacteria. Using heat-treated flour will help make it safe to eat.
  • Be creative with how you use this recipe. It is always great with a spoon but try serving it in a cone, adding it to your favorite vanilla ice cream to make cookie dough ice cream or add it to this Cheesecake or Brownies!

Storing and Freezing

Store: I recommend refrigerating this eggless dough to allow it to keep for a week or so, plus refrigerating it gives the dough a great structure.

Freeze: Freeze the dough for up to 2 months in a good airtight container. To freeze it, I suggest using a small cookie scoop and scooping it onto a parchment paper {or wax paper} lined baking sheet.  

Freeze the dough mounds and then put them into a large zipper bag once frozen.  Return to the freezer until ready to eat or use in a recipe.

Recipe FAQs

Can you eat Eggless Cookie Dough?

Yes!  Absolutely!  That is the brilliant thing about it.  With no raw eggs and with the treatment of the flour it should be totally safe to eat.

Can raw flour make you sick?

Although it is very uncommon there is a small risk that it can contain harmful bacteria.  That is why it is a good idea to take precaution and treat flour {see recipe for details} to make this raw cookie dough safe to eat.

Can eggless cookie dough be baked?

No.  Without the addition of eggs or baking soda, baking this easy eggless cookie dough recipe is not advised.  The result would not be a quality baked cookie.
