Ingredients

Edible Sugar Cookie Dough ingredients.

You only need a few simple ingredients to help you make this tasty dessert recipe. All of these ingredients are easy to find at your local grocery or you may already have them on hand at your home, which can save you a trip to the store. 

Butter – For baking purposes, I always like to use unsalted butter. However, if you only have salted butter on hand, you can use that instead. 

Almond Extract – Almond extract adds a lot of flavor to these cookie dough bites, however, it is optional so if you aren’t a fan of almond flavoring you can skip this and double the vanilla extract if preferred. 

Sprinkles – I suggest using Jimmie-style sprinkles because they are softer. You can use any type of sprinkle or color that you have on hand, or you can leave them out altogether. 

Substitutions

Milk: Instead of regular milk, you can use dairy-free milk instead. 

Sugar: I used regular white granulated sugar in this recipe, however, you can use brown sugar or even your favorite low-carb sweetener in this recipe.
