Before we watch the video, I want to answer some common questions about edible cookie dough. I also want to tell you about the safety of edible cookie dough.
Is Edible Cookie Dough Safe to Eat?
When someone shares a recipe for “edible” cookie dough, that generally indicates that it will be safe to eat. The two issues with eating standard cookie dough is raw egg and raw flour. Most people think of the raw egg, but many don’t know that you aren’t supposed to eat raw flour. In our recipe and video, I’ll show you how to use heat treated flour to make sure it’s no longer raw, thus leaving you with delicious and safe edible gluten free cookie dough.

Do you need to bake edible cookie dough?
No, you don’t need to bake the dough. However, we are going to heat the flour to make sure your cookie dough is safe to eat.
Can you heat up edible cookie dough?
Yes! If after making your top 8 free edible cookie dough you decide you’d rather have a traditional cookie, you can absolutely bake it in the oven.
Does edible cookie dough need to be refrigerated?
Technically no, but we suggest keeping it in the fridge. This will extend the shelf life and keep it on the safer side. Whilst dairy free butter is a perishable item (which is why it’s sold in the refrigerator section), it can sit at room temperature for quite some time safely. The same is true of milk-based butters. Even still, for best results, keep your dough in the fridge.
If you don’t like the taste of cold, take your edible cookie dough out of the fridge 30 – 60 minutes before enjoying it.

Is vegan cookie dough safe to eat?
Whilst vegan cookie dough is egg free (the main issue with raw cookie dough), it still contains raw flour. We don’t suggest eating large amounts of vegan cookie dough that’s not “edible” vegan cookie dough.

Does cookie dough contain milk?
Depends on the recipe. All of our recipes here on RAISE are 100% dairy free. A standard recipe you find online won’t call for milk necessarily, but it may call for chocolate chips that contain milk. We use a chocolate chip that’s vegan, dairy free, and top 8 allergy free.
How do you fix dry gluten free cookie dough?
Duh duh dunnnnnn. There are so many problems you can run into when baking gluten free. Dry goods, goods with poor texture, gummy goods, dense goods, it can all happen. The recipes you find here on RAISE won’t have any of those problems. Great news: RAISE is 100% gluten free! That’s hundreds of GOOD gluten free recipes.
If you somehow end up with dry gluten free cookie dough, add extra egg or egg substitute, along with a little water to help hydrate your dough. Start with 1 teaspoon at a time, as you don’t want to flood your dough and end up with a mess.

Selecting Chocolate Chips For Your Vegan Cookie Dough
If you’re new to food allergies, or eating vegan, selecting the right chocolate chips will be important. If you have a point of reference for taste, be sure to select quality chocolate chips, and maybe err on the sweet side when you’re starting out. The brand Pascha is vegan, gluten free, top 8 allergy free, soy free chocolate. They also make a milk free vegan white chocolate chip if you’d like to have some real fun.
The quality of chocolate from Pascha is superb. They also offer a corn free chocolate option (100% pure dark). Be warned though, the pure dark chips are intense (especially if you’re use to a milk chocolate which contains sugar).
