Frequently Asked Questions
Why Can't You Eat Raw Cookie Dough?
There are two ingredients in most cookie dough that can cause a food-borne illness otherwise known as food poisoning. Both raw flour and raw eggs can make you sick.
Raw eggs may contain salmonella, which is a bacteria that can reside on the shell and inside the egg, Ingesting a contaminated raw or undercooked egg can cause gastrointestinal distress and is especially dangerous for infants, pregnant women, the elderly, and anyone immune-compromised.
Uncooked flour can contain e-coli which can also cause food poisoning. See below how to cook the flour to make it safe.
How Do You Make a Safe Edible Cookie Dough?
Make an egg-free recipe using only butter and/or cream cheese to provide the texture of cookie dough. Plus, cook your flour by heating it to 160 degrees by placing it in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees or using 15-second increments in the microwave. This will kill any bacteria lurking in the flour.
How to Make Oreo Cookie Dough Cookies
- First, cook and cool the flour so it’s safe to eat raw.
- Next, mix together the cookie dough ingredients and set them aside.
- Split open the Oreo thins carefully, trying not to break too many. You can scrape off the filling if you’d like, but it can be tedious so I left it alone.
- Use a small cookie scoop to add cookie dough to one half of the Oreo, then top with the other half, gently pressing to spread the dough to the edges.
- Press mini-chocolate chips into the cookie dough to garnish, if desired.
Tips for Making Cookie Dough Filled Oreos
- Use any kind of Oreos you like. I prefer the thinner Oreo Thins.
- Don’t chill the cookie dough filling before using. When it’s at room temperature, it’s easier to smash the dough and get the chocolate chips to adhere.
- These do not need to be refrigerated, but they will keep longer kept cold in an airtight container.
