Substitutions and Additions:

  • Mini Chocolate Chips – Feel free to use different types of chocolate chips. We have even added in white chocolate chips. We love using mini ones as it provides the perfect amount of texture.
  • Sprinkles – Feel free to add in fun sprinkles if you are making these for a special occasion.
  • Favorite Mix-Ins – Add any mix-ins that you prefer. Chopped nuts is also a great addition.
  • Peanut Butter Cookies – We also like peanut butter cookie dough. You can reduce part of the butter and add a little bit of peanut butter to the recipe.
  • Ice cream add in – Mix this into vanilla ice cream and make your own cookie dough ice cream flavors.
Combining the butter, sugars and vanilla extract in a bowl with a hand mixer

Step 1 – Beat together the butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl. You can use a hand held mixer or stand mixer.

Adding in milk to the mixture

Step 2 – Once this is well combined, add in the milk and beat until mixed.

Mixing in flour and chocolate chips

Step 3 – Stir in the flour by hand and gently fold in the chocolate chips.

Rolling the cookie dough into balls and placing on the platter

Step 4 – Roll the dough into balls then serve and enjoy.

How to Treat the Flour:

Heat treated flour is best to ensure the recipe is the safest to eat. You can purchase heat treated flour. But it is often pretty hard to find as not many brands or stores carry it.

You can put the flour in a microwave safe bowl and microwave a few minutes. The flour needs to reach 165 degrees. You can check this by using an instant read thermometer.

If you prefer to use your oven. Put the flour on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees. This will prevent you from having to eat raw flour.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Softening Cookie Dough – The cookie dough gets harder in the refrigerator due to the butter solidifying. Allow the cookie dough to sit at room temperature for a few minutes and it will soften.  It does not take long at all.
  • Cookie Scoop – Save time and use a cookie scoop to make the dough balls. You can make a bunch super fast and I like how they are all the same size.
  • Mixing Ingredients – Mix ingredients together with a hand mixer or electric mixer. Then stir in chocolate chips by hand until everything is combined. You may need to use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides.

This cookie dough is not made to be baked. Since there is no eggs, the cookies would be flat if you tried to bake them.
