Edible Sugar Cookie Dough made with 4 simple ingredients: Butter, Sugar, Flour, & Vanilla.
I love making sugar cookies with all that butter & sugar, yum! I also love sneaking a spoonful here & there when I’m making them but I won’t if it has eggs added to it already because I worry about it making me sick (I know…what are the odds?!).
This recipe is perfect for those times when your craving a little sugar cookie dough. I derived this recipe from one of my favorite butter/shortbread cookie recipes & it makes pretty delicious dough for consuming straight from the spoon.
Recipe makes a small batch, about 2 servings.
Update: I’ve gotten a lot of feedback from people about this recipe. Most seems to tell me they like it as is. A few people have told me they needed to add a tablespoon or two more of butter because their dough was a little dry. Some suggest adding a pinch of brown sugar or a bit of milk also. All good ideas!
- ¼ cup salted butter, semi melted (I usually take cold butter & microwave it for 20-30 sec.)
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup flour
- +sprinkles (optional)
- Cream butter & sugar together using an electric mixer until light & fluffy. (use melted butter or semi-melted soft butter)
- Mix in vanilla. Mix in flour until soft dough forms.
*Eating raw flour has become a concern for some people. People have been trying the microwave method to heat flour to 160 F. degrees, I have not tried it. Disclaimer: Make & eat at your own risk.
