Maybe you’ve had edible chocolate chip cookie dough, but have you tried edible sugar cookie dough? Not everyone is a chocolate chip fan, so this is a good one to make when you want to satisfy those sugar cookie cravings.

It’s a safe, edible cookie dough that is easy to make and fun to customize with different add-ins.

When I was growing up, I’m not sure we knew about the whole raw egg issue in cookie dough – if we did, it didn’t stop us from scraping the bowl! Now, I know better and make eggless edible cookie dough that’s safe to eat. 

I love this recipe because it tastes just like sugar cookie dough, and it’s super easy to make. We love to switch up the add-ins every time we make it, too. Sprinkles, candies, baking chips, nuts… the possibilities are endless with this recipe.

This is an easy edible dough without brown sugar and eggs. I’m also explaining how to heat-treat your flour, so you don’t have to worry about anything!

  • Unsalted butter – leave it out at room temperature, so it’s softened
  • Granulated sugar – sugar cookies are best with white sugar
  • Vanilla and Almond Extracts – for flavor. You can omit the almond but we love it.
  • Milk – instead of egg I use milk to combine the dough together
  • All-purpose flour – you can heat treat it first to kill any bacteria hiding in it. All you do is spread it out on a baking sheet and bake it for five minutes at 350°F. Basically, you are lightly toasting it. Read all about cooking flour.
  • Mix-ins like sprinkles, candy, baking chips, or nuts

1. Cream: In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add both kinds of extract and mix to combine.

2. Mix: With the mixer running on low speed, slowly add the flour until it’s mixed in and the dough is smooth.

3. Mix-Ins: Add in your favorite variation (listed below).

4. Serve: Serve scoops in a bowl like ice cream or eat it with a spoon! Or you can scoop balls of dough like truffles.

  • Sprinkles

Recipe FAQs

  • How do you make pasteurized flour? “Pasteurized flour” is just a fancy way to say heat-treated, and it’s really easy to do. You can bake your flour in the oven for five minutes at 350°F to kill bacteria. Just measure out the amount you need, spread it on a baking sheet, and pop it in the oven. Let it cool and then use it in your recipe.
  • Can you bake edible cookie dough? You can, but you probably won’t like how the cookies turn out. In regular cookie dough, eggs act as a binder that holds the cookies together. With edible cookie dough, the egg is left out, so if you try and bake it, you’ll end up with a crumbly mess.
  • How do you store edible sugar cookie dough? Place the balls in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator.
  • How long does raw cookie dough last? Edible cookie dough will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator. Just keep it in an airtight container.
  • Can you omit the vanilla or almond extract? Yes, you can leave one or both out if you prefer. Or, you can substitute your favorite extract. These edible sugar cookie bites are hard to resist! I usually hide them in the back of the fridge, so I’m not tempted every time I open the door, but it doesn’t always work. If I know they’re in there, I’m going to find them. Give them a try, and you’ll see what I mean – Enjoy!
