    This recipe is perfect if you love to eat cookie dough straight from the bowl!

    Technique tip: Toasting the flour in the oven both heat treats it to make it safe for consumption and gives it a slightly deeper, nuttier flavor!

    Swap option: Feel free to change it up and add in your favorite candies, toppings, etc!

    Preparation

    For the cookie dough:

    1.

    Place the flour in a microwave safe bowl, then microwave at 30 second intervals, whisking after each interval to break up clumps. Continue until flour reaches 160 F. This should take about 60-90 seconds total. Alternatively, sprinkle the flour over a parchment paper lined baking sheet and toast at 350 F for 10 minutes. Let the flour cool before continuing.

    2.

    Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt to combine.

    3.

    In a separate bowl, combine butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Mix in vanilla extract and milk.

    4.

    Add dry ingredients and mix until only streaks of flour remain. Add in desired mix-ins, and mix until fully combined.

    Variations:

    Peanut butter cup: Add peanut butter to the wet ingredients and mix in chopped peanut butter cups.

    Unicorn sugar cookie dough: Add a total white sugar (omitting the brown sugar) to the wet ingredients. Scoop out heaping tablespoons of batter into three separate bowls and dye one of each color: pink, blue and purple. Swirl colored batter into sugar cookie dough along with sprinkles.

    Funfetti birthday cake: Dye about 1/4 cup of cookie dough with pink food color and swirl into the rest of the mixture. Stir chopped birthday cake cookies and rainbow sprinkles into the prepared dough.
