Edible snickerdoodle cookie dough is full of cinnamon sugary goodness! Egg-free and with heat-treated flour, this cookie dough recipe is safe to eat!
I am so happy to be home! And yet . . . it is only for the weekend. 🙁 I leave Monday again for Boston, and all I want to do is snuggle David and fuzzybritches on the couch. As much as I love getting put up in fancy hotels, ordering room service, and watching cable way too late . . . three weeks straight of work travel starts to lose its appeal.
When I got home from Boston, Denver was getting its first snow in quite a while. The roads were ice, the sky was gray, and the flurries were everywhere. Sigh . . . I love it. I was born for seasons and winter in particular. No matter how much I have loved the various places we have lived and visited, snowy mountains and silent woods will always be home.
It makes me think of riding the ski lift up the mountain with Dad, munching half frozen chewy granola bars. Also makes me think of sitting in a self-built igloo (okay okay – lopsided snow hill) when I was a kid, munching carrots that used to belong to the snowman and pretending I was an explorer surviving on minimal rations. It makes me think of visiting Keystone with my family for a ski trip. Racing back and forth between rolling in the snow and jumping in the hot tub. I’m not sure if I love snow for the happy memories or just love the snow. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Either way. Happy Kaela.
And speaking of endless snow crystals around here, how about these sugar crystals??? Am I right? I’m not yet over the edible cookie dough jam. Since I made edible chocolate chip cookie dough last week, I’ve been craving edible snickerdoodle cookie dough. It’s a perfect eggless base with a hint of cinnamon. It tastes like snickerdoodles all on its own. But roll it in a cinnamon sugar mixture and YES. Very nearly tastes like you just took snickerdoodles out of the oven too soon and started nomming.
This recipe is super similar to sugar cookie dough. The only difference is cinnamon and some cream of tartar. So if you’re craving edible sugar cookie dough, just refrain from adding the cinnamon and roll it in plain sugar instead of cinnamon sugar!
As for me, I am topping mine with extra cinnamon sugar, wrapping myself in a quilt burrito-style, and snuggling in to watch snow flurries and a movie with the boys! Happy Friday!
IS IT SAFE TO EAT THIS SNICKERDOODLE COOKIE DOUGH?
Past health concerns with eating raw cookie dough stemmed from two ingredients: raw eggs and raw flour. This recipe omits eggs and uses heat-treated flour in order to avoid the risks associated with these ingredients.
WHERE DO I BUY HEAT-TREATED FLOUR?
I personally prefer to purchase my heat-treated flour from Page House, because (a) they have a well-tested process for killing 99.9% of the possible bacteria, and (b) it allows for last minute cookie dough cravings without having to heat treat the flour myself.
CAN I HEAT-TREAT FLOUR AT HOME?
Do so at your own risk. Honeyville has recommended heat-treating your raw flour by toasting it. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spread your flour out on the baking sheet. Bake the flour for five minutes, remove from the oven, and allow to cool completely before using in your recipe. (Using hot flour will change the texture of the cookie dough.)
CAN I BAKE THIS COOKIE DOUGH EVEN IF IT DOESN’T HAVE EGGS?
If you get halfway through the cookie dough and decide you’d rather have cookies, these can be baked up! They will be crispier and chewier, instead of thick and soft, because of the missing eggs and smaller amount of flour. But the resulting cookies are especially good when they are fresh out of the oven and warm! Instructions are below!
HOW DO I STORE LEFTOVER COOKIE DOUGH?
Store leftover snickerdoodle cookie dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to three months.
