Is cookie dough safe to eat?
Typically cookie dough is not safe to eat, this recipe is designed to be completely safe to eat though!
Most cookie doughs involve raw eggs and raw flour. There is a risk in eating either of these ingredients without cooking. People who are immune compromised or pregnant should avoid eating raw eggs.
Eggs could possibly contain salmonella and should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160℉ to kill any possible bacteria.
Flour is another ingredient that shouldn't be eaten raw. During processing, flour isn't treated to kill germs. It is packaged and sold raw. Flour could possibly contain E. coli and should also be cooked to an internal temperature of 160℉ to kill any possible bacterias.
How to heat treat flour:
Oven: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread the flour onto a large baking sheet. Bake for about 5 minutes, flour should not be browned or toasted looking. Ensure that the flour reached an internal temperature of 160 by using an instant read thermometer.
Microwave: place flour in a microwave safe bowl or dish. Heat for 30-45 seconds, up to 1 minute. Check the temperature of the flour using an instant read thermometer.
After heat treating, be sure to run the flour through a sifter to help break up any clumps that formed from heating. This will prevent any lumps in your dough.
Chocolate Dough: replace 1/4 cup of the flour with 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. (Cocoa powder doesn't need to be heat treated.)
Peanut Butter Dough: replace 1/4 cup of flour with 1/4 cup of peanut butter.
Birthday Cake: replace 1/4 cup of flour with 1/4 cup of yellow cake mix (cake mix would need to be heat treated just like flour). Instead of using chocolate chips use colorful sprinkles.
