Course Dessert Cuisine American Keyword edible cookie dough Prep Time 15 minutes Chilling Time 10 minutes Total Time 15 minutes Servings 4 -6 servings Calories 288kcal Author Chelsea Ingredients3/4 cup white all-purpose flour (spoon and level to avoid packing in too much flour)1/3 cup salted butter, melted MOST of the way (if using unsalted, add a pinch of salt to your dough)1/3 cup dark OR light brown sugar, packed (I prefer dark; use whatever you like/have)3 tablespoons white granulated sugar1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract1 tablespoon milk: 1%, 2%, or whole (I use whole)1/3 cup mini chocolate chips InstructionsPreheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spread the flour onto a baking sheet in an even layer.Meanwhile, melt the butter 80% of the way and then set aside to cool back to room temperature. (It's fine if the butter does melt all the way, you'll just need to chill the dough for a little to avoid "greasy" cookie dough)Toast the flour in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes (watch carefully to avoid burning flour). Remove and allow to completely cool.In a medium size bowl, add the melted and cooled to room temperature butter (if the butter is still hot, it will melt the sugars and make for grainy cookie dough), brown sugar, and white sugar. Stir until smooth. Add the vanilla, salt, and milk and stir until combined. Stir in the toasted and cooled flour and chocolate chips. Stir until combined.If the dough needs it, chill in the fridge for 10 minutes before enjoying. I love the texture and flavor the mostly melted butter adds, but sometimes it needs to chill a minute to firm up again! Well worth the short wait 🙂 Video Recipe NotesWhen wrapped and stored well, this cookie dough will stay fresh in the fridge for up to five days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
