Ben & Jerry’s released its edible cookie dough recipe so you can make it at home

Though unbaked cookie dough is a delectable delight, the raw treat can make you sick thanks to germs like E.coli.

The good news? Ice cream master Ben & Jerry’s has come up with a safe cookie dough recipe that doesn’t sacrifice flavor, and it shared it on its website so anyone with a sweet tooth can make it at home.

Ben & Jerry’s’ cookie dough recipe is 100 percent eggless. It’s also made with heat-treated flour, as untreated flour has “a high likelihood of containing contaminants like Salmonella and E. coli,” as the recipe explains.

In order to make Ben & Jerry’s’ infamous edible cookie dough, you will need:

  • 8 tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Before you start mixing your ingredients together, first heat treat the flour. You can do this by microwaving the flour on high in 30-second intervals until the flour reaches 165° throughout. You can also spread the flour out on a rimmed baking sheet and bake it at 300° in 2-minute intervals until it reaches 165° throughout.

Once your flour is heat-treated, combine the butter and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Next, add the vanilla, cream and salt, followed by your heat-treated flour.

Finally, fold in your chocolate chips until each bite of cookie dough has a generous helping of chocolate in it. Now you have a safe and scrumptious no-bake treat that the whole family will enjoy!
