Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Butter: Use real butter (not margarine or shortening) for this recipe. Make sure the butter is at room temperature so it can easily cream together with the sugar.
  • Milk: A dash of milk helps hold the edible cookie dough batter together and adds a creamy flavor.
  • Baking soda: Baking soda helps to create a light, fluffy batter that has the same texture as regular chocolate chip cookies batter.
  • Salt: Fine sea salt balances the sweetness of the cookies and makes every flavor sing!
  • Gluten-free 1:1 baking flour: Be sure to use a high-quality gf flour for this recipe to achieve the best texture.
  • Brown sugar: Brown sugar adds sweetness and a touch of molasses flavor to this gluten-free edible cookie dough.
  • Vanilla: You can use real vanilla extract or imitation vanilla flavor.
  • Chocolate chips: Mini semi-sweet chocolate or mini dark chocolate chips are the best size for this cookie dough.

  • Use a measuring cup to measure out the flour into a glass or microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 50-60 seconds (you want it to be at least 165F). This “cooks” the flour so it is safe to eat raw. Let the flour cool to room temperature. You can speed up the process by putting it in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer, cream together brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add the vanilla extract, salt and baking soda and mix until combined. Add the flour and mix until fully incorporated into the gluten free chocolate chip cookie dough.
