This edible sugar cookie dough recipe is an easy dessert that anyone can make.

It just isn’t the holidays for me without Christmas sugar cookies.

This tradition goes back to my childhood, where the delicious aroma of freshly baked cookies filled our home.

All December long, my mom would have cookies baking in the oven or laid out on paper towels on the kitchen counters to let them cool before packaging them up for family or friends. 

While my mom did the baking, my dad, sister, and I were in charge of frosting and decorating the Christmas shaped sugar cookies. My sister and I would laugh at the funny ways my dad would decorate the cookies (Mom did not think this was funny!), but each cookie became it’s own tiny, edible work of art. 

Now in my own home, I’ve carried this cherished tradition with me and in this blog post, with a little twist. 

Edible sugar cookie dough is a simple and delicious way to enjoy the same joy and instant satisfaction that I remember from my childhood. 

As the familiar scents of vanilla and sugar fill the kitchen, I’m transported back in time to those special moments of holiday baking with my family. 

Join me in putting a twist on a Christmas cookie tradition with this simple, sweet treat!

  • 1/2 cup Salted Butter: The heart and soul of any good cookie dough…butter! I like to use salted butter but unsalted butter can be used instead, just add about 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the recipe. Soften the butter to room temperature for easy blending.
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar: The fine texture of white sugar blends seamlessly into the cookie dough.
  • 1 tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract: Gives this recipe that sugar cookie flavor. I like to make my own, the flavor is so much richer and deeper than artificial extracts.
  • 1 1/4 cups Heat Treated All-Purpose Flour: The binder for the cookie dough. We’ll talk about heat treating the flour to remove any bacteria in a minute.
  • 4 tablespoons Milk: Enhances the texture and ties all the flavors together creating a luscious edible sugar cookie dough.
  • Sprinkles: You can’t have sugar cookies without the sprinkles…right?!

TOOLS YOU’LL NEED

Before making the cookie dough, you’re going to want to heat-treat the flour to remove any harmful bacteria and guarantee an edible cookie dough.

To heat treat the flour, spread the flour on a parchment paper lined rimmed baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let flour cool completely. 

In a mixing bowl with a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. 

Gradually mix in the vanilla extract, then the heat-treated flour, and finally a tablespoon of milk at a time to form a creamy cookie dough mixture.

Gently fold in the sprinkles with a spatula.

Chill the cookie dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to firm up and enhance the flavors. 

Once chilled, scoop out small portions and enjoy your delicious edible sugar cookie dough!

Tips

  • Take the time to heat-treat the flour to guarantee the safety of your edible cookie dough. This simple step eliminates potential bacteria, making it safe to consume without baking.
  • Gradually incorporate the dry ingredients into the creamed butter and sugars to achieve the perfect texture. This ensures a smooth and luscious cookie dough.
  • Allow the cookie dough to chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. This not only firms up the texture of the dough, but also allows the flavors to meld and intensify.
  • Adjust the batch size to suit your needs. Whether you’re preparing a small cup for yourself or creating a larger quantity for a gathering, this recipe can easily be scaled up or down.
