First things first: how the heck do you heat treat flour? According to Ben & Jerry’s official website “there are two main ways to heat treat flour so that it’s safe to eat in edible cookie dough. The easiest method is to microwave your flour on high until it reaches 165°F throughout. Use an instant-read thermometer to make sure that it has all reached 165°F, then stir it into your edible cookie dough recipe as usual. The other method is to heat your flour in a conventional oven. Spread the flour out on a rimmed baking sheet and bake it in a preheated oven at 300°F in 2-minute intervals, checking the temperature after each interval until it reaches 165°F throughout.”

Sounds simple enough! The edible dough making process is actually altogether simple, plus it will keep in an airtight container for one week in the fridge or six months in the freezer. Who has that kind of self control to wait six months to enjoy the deliciousness?
