- 1 cup all-purpose flour, heat treated*
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
- ½ cup packed light brown sugar
- 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 Tablespoons fancy molasses
- 1 ½ Tablespoons milk
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
- Festive sprinkles, or nonpareils
- In the bowl of stand mixer combine the butter, both sugars, salt, fancy molasses and whip together until pale and fluffy, about 10 minutes
- Mix in the milk and the vanilla extract until combined
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Add in the flour mixture by ¼ cupful, beating between until combined, until all the flour mixture has been added
- Fold in the chocolate chips. Add sprinkles, or nonpareils, to your liking
- Scoop, or spoon, into sterilised mason, or kilner, jars and add some more sprinkles for that extra festive touch. Wrap as you like if you’re gifting to someone- I usually bow and tag the jars with festive ribbon
- Cookie dough is best eaten at room temperature
How To Store: Keep this Edible Gingerbread Cookie Dough in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Eat it up within 2 weeks!
* To heat treat your flour for safety, place it in a bowl and microwave it in 30-second intervals until the flour temperature reaches 165 F (74 C). Mix with a spoon between intervals. Mine usually takes around 3 bursts. Allow to cool before using. Or you can bake it for 7-8 minutes in a preheated oven at 350°F
Edible Cookie Dough Christmas Trees
If you’re not gifting this edible cookie dough (how could you not? It’s the Season of Giving!) a fantastic way of using this delicious treat are these adorable Edible Cookie Dough Christmas Trees. Fun and easy to make, you can also get some little helping hands involved too!
- Additional waffle/ sugar cones
- White, or semi-sweet chocolate, melted
- Festive sprinkles
- Line a baking tray with baking parchment or foil, and set aside until needed
- If your edible cookie dough is still soft enough, fill a place in a piping bag and snip the end off.
- Pipe the cookie dough into your cones. (If the edible cookie dough is a bit too stiff to pipe, you can use a butter knife, or small spoon, to fill the cone instead)
- Coat the outside of your filled comes with the melted chocolate, either by dipping in a deep bowl, or coating using a spoon
- Place on your prepared baking tray and let the chocolate set for a minute or two (this will help the sprinkle stick better). Add festive sprinkles to finish your Christmas trees off and allow for the chocolate to fully set
- To serve/ eat, push a popsicle stick into the cookie dough, for ease of holding and enjoy!
