This is one of the most common questions I get asked. Is it safe to eat raw cookie dough? The fact of the matter is that it depends on how you make the cookie dough.

This particular recipe does not contain eggs. Eggs are generally the ingredient that causes people to shudder when it comes to eating raw cookie dough.

I can honestly say that I have probably eaten more than my fair share of cookie dough containing eggs during my lifetime and have never gotten sick. BUT, it could have happened.

The other ingredient that could potentially cause illness is flour. YES. Uncooked flour could contain E.Coli.

There is a simple solution to make this Patriotic Edible Cookie Dough recipe safe for consumption. Microwave the flour before you start the recipe. Once you cook the flour for about 60 seconds in the microwave it will kill any possible bacteria hiding inside.

Easy Peasy!

This easy edible sugar cookie dough recipe only has six ingredients!

You know that easy recipes are my go-to as a busy mom. This recipe is super simple and my kids are always excited for dessert! Plus this is perfect for Patriotic holiday parties!


Start off by taking a large mixing bowl and add the sugar and the butter. Beat these two ingredients together until they are smooth. I find this easiest to do with a stand mixer, but a hand mixer will also work.

Once these the sugar and butter are smooth add in the vanilla and salt. Continue mixing well until these ingredients are all well-combined.

Now it is time to add the flour to the mixture. It works best to add this a little bit at a time. I find adding about 1/4 a cup at a time to work well.

Stir the flour in as you add it. You can do this by hand or with the mixer on low.

Keep adding flour until it is all incorporated and mixed in to form the dough.


The fun part is here! It is time to add the pretty red, white and blue sprinkles!

Add the sprinkles to the dough using a rubber spatula.

The fun part of this recipe is that the cookie dough can be served so it looks like a scoop of ice cream! Just grab an ice cream or cookie scoop to form individual portions and place in a bowl or sundae dish!

  1. Have not made yet as I have diabetes but it looks too good to pass up! I’m going to reformulate with low carb ingredients and cut way down on the large amount of sprinkles, then maybe add a little bit of red and blue food color to each half of the dough to give it some color. I am NOT one of those Keto people that cut carbs extremely to lose weight but I do have to adjust my insulin for every carb I eat!

    • I love that you found a way to make the recipe fit your diabetic diet! I hope it turns out well and that it’s delicious. Colored dough sounds fun!

    • Yes, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to five days. If you want to keep it longer, scoop it into balls and freeze individually for a month.
