Edible cookie dough? Isn't all cookie dough edible. Well, no.... Well yes, but you're supposed to cook it first so that you won't be harmed by any bacteria from the eggs. You're not supposed to eat raw or uncooked chocolate chip cookie dough because the eggs used as an ingredient aren't safe to eat raw. 

You may have noticed that some companies have started selling chocolate chip cookie dough that is safe to eat. You can find it next to the regular chocolate chip cookie dough in the refridgerated section of your grocery store. But you can also make your own.

Check out these 5 top recipes for how to make chocolate chip cookie dough that you can eat without cooking it.

Oh, but you might notice that a "cooking time" is listed for some of these recipes. Mostly this means that the flour is cooked before adding it to the dough mixture. The short cooking time is to kill any bacteria that may be present in the flour. I think it would probably be safe to skip this step, but who knows.

I've only included the ingredients, prep time, and cooking time for these recipes so you can get an idea if you want to make a recipe based on the ingredients and the time involved. If you like the ingredients that a recipe uses, then click through to the site that hosts the recipe.
