Eggless Cookie Dough ingredients

  • UNSALTED buttersoftened – keeps the dough rich, held together and with that cookie dough flavor
  • brown sugar and granulated sugar – these sweeten the cookie dough
  • vanilla extract – adds a nice flavor
  • whole milk – this replaces any eggs in the cookie dough, to add extra liquid. You can use your favorite dairy free milk as well.
  • salt – adds a nice flavor to balance out the sweetness. If you are using salted butter SKIP the extra salt
  • all purpose flour – heat treat your flour by zapping it in the microwave in 30 second increments (1 minute total), or cooking it in the oven to reduce any risks
  • chocolate chips – I love using mini chocolate chips so they are more spread throughout the dough

How to make Edible Cookie Dough

  1. Cream together the butter and sugars. Add your butter, brown sugar, and sugar to a small bowl and mix them together for a couple minutes. Add in the vanilla extract and milk and stir until combined.
  2. Add in the dry ingredients. Add in the salt, and flour, and mix until you have a nice soft cookie dough. If the dough is too soft, or thin add a little more flour. If it’s too dry, add a dash more of milk.
  3. Add in the chocolate chips. Stir in the chocolate chips and enjoy the bowl right away, or stick it in the fridge for 10 minutes, then enjoy. You can also roll the dough into balls and eat those, or pop them in the fridge or freezer for whenever you need a bite of cookie dough.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Heat treat the flour. Microwave your flour in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until hot throughout (it only takes about 1 minute in my experience), or bake extra and store it until needed at 350 F on a rimmed cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, until the flour reaches an internal temperature of 160 F. Let the flour cool for about 10 minutes before using in the cookie dough
  • Extra Mix Ins – Make the cookie dough with whatever add ins you enjoy, try pretzels, white chocolate chips, sprinkles, Oreo cookie pieces, or whatever you might enjoy.
  • Cookie dough Truffles – Use this cookie dough, and roll it into balls. Refrigerate them until hardened slightly and chilled, then melt chocolate until creamy and dip the balls into the chocolate. Let the chocolate set and enjoy.

How to store this Edible Cookie Dough Recipe

The eggless cookie dough should stay good in the fridge for about 1 week in an airtight container. Or it can be stored in the freezer for 3 to 6 months.

Edible Cookie Dough Recipe FAQs

Why can’t you bake edible cookie dough?

Homemade edible cookie dough is missing key ingredients to allow the dough to bake into delicious cookies. It does not contain eggs or leavening agents, which are key ingredients which would allow the cookies to rise and life when baked. And you will not end up a hard cookie, not a soft and chewy cookie.

Why is my edible cookie dough gummy?

Edible cookie dough can turn gummy because you added too much milk to the cookie dough, or because you overmixed it. Because this is a small batch recipe, that can be mixed in one bowl, once you add the milk and flour you only want to mix until the dough is combined.

Why is my edible cookie dough liquidy?

Cookie dough can turn out runny from having too much liquid in it. It can easily be thickened by adding 1 or 2 more tablespoons of flour to the mixture. Start with 1 then add more as needed.

    Could have less chocolate and more dough but a good, quick, easy recipe


  5. Allie says

    I made this evening as a snack for my son and I. Proportions were a bit off when I first made it. Had to add more butter as it came out to crumbly/dry. Once I did that it was great. Delicious, indulgent, yum


  6. Sky Club says

    This recipe looks enticing. I’m especially drawn to the Eggless Cookie Dough. Can’t wait to give it a try in my own kitchen.


  7. Detroit Herbal Center says

    This recipe seems promising. The Eggless Cookie Dough really appeals to me. Looking forward to trying it out in my kitchen.


  8. Genevieve says

    I love this so much!!!! I have made it so so many times! I usually double it because I love it so much! It’s good with the normal chocolate chips! I like to put pecans and old fashioned oats or just the oats, but the pecans add a really good flavor to it! It’s so good!!!!


    • Aimee says

      I love the idea of oats and pecans too, what a great flavor and texture!

    Last time I made this I didn’t have butter in my fridge so used oil. It was good, but a little greasy. Today I made it again, but this time I was low on oil and didn’t have any butter, so I used honey. I replaced the white sugar 1:1 with honey, did not use any butter and unsweetened almond milk. Perfection (I think I put a little more honey later on, but not a significant amount, just enough for sticking purposes). For those of you who may be wondering why I’m not following the recipe exactly or why I don’t have butter in my fridge, I am currently living on an island and some things are really hard to come by and/or are very very very expensive when I don’t eat or use them regularly. Almond milk is cheaper than regular milk, honey I got on sale. But I also realized that this might knock down some of the calories, so if you want a sweet treat with less (but still some) guilt, this is one way to do it.
