Make Ben & Jerry’s Edible Cookie Dough at Home
Edible cookie dough AND it's National Junk Food day! Could today get any better? Well, probably. But we will just go with this. I'm all about the edible cookie dough.

In all honesty, I have never not eaten the cookie dough when it's raw. Like licking the beaters and/or bowl. That's like a "have to". When we were kids, that was the thing to do... we looked forward to when mom would hand over the bowl so we could clean that up. YUM! Then, years later, we found out that we weren't supposed to do that. I don't think that I ever had an adverse reaction to it, but whateves, now they say it's bad. So, enter edible cookie dough!
And what better than Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream people to do this! You can buy this in the store, but how fun to actually make it at home, right?
1. First, heat treat the flour to ensure it is safe to eat. (Do not skip this step, untreated flour can contain contaminants and is not safe to eat.) Place the flour in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring in between. Use an instant-read thermometer to ensure that the flour reaches 165°F throughout.
I haven't tried this yet, but my favorite Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream is the vanilla cookie dough flavor, so how can you possibly go wrong with this? I'm IN!
