I don’t know about you guys but it’s almost impossible for me to be around cookie dough and not swipe a bite of some of it. Has anyone made a recipe for a dozen cookies and then only ended up with enough dough for maybe 10 cookies? I know I’m guilty of that! That’s why I love this cookie dough.

What is cookie dough?
Cookie dough is a blend of cookie ingredients which has been mixed into a malleable form, but not cooked.
Is raw cookie dough safe to eat?
Homemade cookie dough often contains raw white flour and eggs. If flour isn’t treated to kill E. coli and other germs, it can make people sick. Raw eggs may also contain salmonella and other bacteria. My recipe uses almond flour, which is safe to eat raw, and no eggs.
Making the cookie dough is a quick process. to start, combine the white and brown sugars and butter together until it’s a smooth, creamy consistency. Then, add the almond flour, salt, vanilla, and almond milk and stir until it’s all combined well. Last, add in the chocolate chips and stir until they’re mixed in.
What different flavors can I add to my cookie dough?
The possibilities are endless! Chocolate chips are the most popular cookie flavor, however there are so many different options. Toffee pieces, raisins, walnuts, peanuts, pretzels, white chocolate chips, pistachios, pecans, salted caramel, macadamia nuts, and so much more.
How do I store homemade cookie dough?
Cover cookie dough with plastic wrap to prevent the dough from drying out, and store in refrigerator for up to two days.
Can I freeze cookie dough?
Wrap cookie dough tightly with plastic freezer wrap, or in a freezer bag or air tight freezer container. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
