Oh, the awesomeness of cookie dough. It’s forever a favorite snack in our house. Is there anyone who can resist the urge to snack on a bite or two of dough when baking cookies?

Edible cookie dough is great for a few different reasons. Not only is it delicious, but it’s wonderfully snackable. And it gets bonus points for being freezable and thawing quickly when the craving hits.

What could be better than a bag of chocolate chip cookie dough bites stashed in the freezer? Pop them on a plate and you’ll have a sweet snack ready to eat in minutes.

While many people (myself included) eat a bite or two of raw cookie dough without giving it a second thought, when planning a whole recipe’s worth of raw cookie dough to share with friends or family there are a few precautions you may want to follow.

First, skip the egg. That one probably goes without saying. I think most of us avoid consuming raw eggs, right?

Second, it turns out that you aren’t supposed to eat raw flour. However, if you’re like me, you’ve probably been tasting cookie dough and cake batters your entire life without any issues at all, right?

That said, when making a full batch of cookie dough with plans to consume it raw, it’s not a bad idea to follow the safety recommendation and toast the flour for a few minutes in the oven first. I’ve provided directions below for heat-treating the flour.

How To Heat Treat Flour

To heat treat your flour, spread the flour across a parchment-lined baking sheet. (The parchment isn’t required, but it will make it easy to transfer the flour to the mixing bowl when it’s cool.)

Bake the flour for 5 minutes at 350°F. Remove from the oven and cool. Use the treated flour as instructed in the recipe.
