How to Heat-Treat Flour to Prevent Salmonella

When making edible cookie dough, it is important to heat-treat the flour before using it in the recipe. This is because flour can contain harmful bacteria such as salmonella, which can cause food poisoning. There are two options for heat-treating flour:

  1. Oven Method: Spread the flour out on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 6-7 minutes. Allow the flour to cool completely before using it in the recipe.
  2. Skillet Method: Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the flour to the skillet and stir constantly for about 3-5 minutes or until the flour is golden brown. Allow the flour to cool completely before using it in the recipe.

Mix and Match Flavors

Lemon is a delicious and refreshing flavor for edible cookie dough, but don’t be afraid to try other citrus flavors or mix and match. Try using lime juice and zest for a tangy twist, or orange for a sweeter option. The possibilities are endless!

Can I use regular flour instead of heat-treated flour in this recipe?

It is not recommended to use regular flour in edible cookie dough recipes as it may contain harmful bacteria. Always use heat-treated flour to ensure the safety of the dough.

Can I bake this cookie dough?
