Cookie dough is everyone’s favorite part of making the cookies; that is before they come out of the oven all warm and delicious. Sometimes it’s not even the 2 dozen cookies we want, but just the raw cookie dough and the baked cookies are the aftermaths. There is also the raw eggs and for some the raw flour that makes a few hesitate in eating raw cookie dough. So what if we remove the egg, bake the flour, and make it the right size for one person, winning right? Oh, and use gluten-free flour to make it almost universally friendly?? Double win! That is exactly what I did the other day in a moment or two of cookie dough need.
Yes, I could have paid over $5 at the grocery store and bought the Nestle or Ben and Jerry’s but that is a lot of money when I already have the stuff at home. Plus if I really want it I should make it and not cave to high-priced convince food, unless it’s ice cream. After staring at my car keys and trying to justify the trip to the store to accidentally place the cookie dough in the cart while looking at biscuits, I had this thought out, I decided to suck it up and make it at home and enjoy the satisfaction and taste of a homemade goodie.
For this recipe, I adapted my go-to sugar cookie recipe to make it gluten and egg free. Removing the egg really is a piece of cake as the eggs in cookies are for puffy ness and binding during baking. I chose to make my flour as it wasn’t stored in an air-tight container and I don’t want to get sick right now. A quick few minutes in the oven solved that concern and in a few quick stirs, I had my emotional satisfaction of Gluten-Free Edible Sugar Cookie Dough! If only laundry was this easy. Here is my recipe for Gluten-Free Edible Sugar Cookie Dough so you can also have satisfaction in your sugar and cookie dough craving, without two dozen cookies to also eat.
