  • Toasted Flour: Place flour on a cookie sheet in an even layer and toast in the oven for 7 minutes. This ensures that all potential bacteria is killed and your edible cookie dough is safe to eat!
  • Milk Substitution: I use almond milk for this recipe, but you can use the milk of your choice.
  • Leftover Storage: Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
  • Freezer Option: Freeze leftover cookie dough for up to 3 months.
