This easy recipe yields approximately 2.5 cups of edible funfetti cookie dough, and only takes about 15 minutes to make.

  1. Heat treat the flour.
    Not only can raw eggs make you sick, raw flour can also make you ill. So it’s important to “cook” the flour a bit before using to make this eggless edible sugar cookie dough recipe.
    In the oven: Spread the flour on a baking sheet, and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5-7 minutes. Sift out any clumps.
    In the microwave: Place the flour in a microwave safe bowl and cook on high for 1 minute.
  2. Cream the butter.
    In a standing mixer or with a hand mixer, combine the butter and sugar until fluffy. Mix in the vanilla.
  3. Add the heat treated flour.
    Mix in slowly, bit by bit, until a soft dough forms.
  4. Add milk.
    Continue to mix, add a bit more milk if needed, until it reaches just the right consistency.
  5. Stir in sprinkles or extra add-ins.
    Use a spatula to fold the goodies into the edible funfetti cookie dough evenly.
