How to Make Edible Cookie Dough
A fresh-from-the-oven cookie is like a warm hug. Comforting and indulgent, for many of us, cookies bring memories of love and laughter. A fond memory for many people is baking cookies with a loved one and eating the dough off of the spoon.
How can you enjoy the flavor and nostalgia of eating raw cookie dough again? It’s simple with your LĒVO infusion machine and an easy-to-make recipe.
How to Eat Edible Cookie Dough Safely
You may be familiar with the dangers of eating raw cookie dough as a result of the risks posed by raw flour and eggs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, eating raw cookie dough can cause significant gastrointestinal distress and illness. One of the most common ingredients in any cookie recipe is flour. Unbaked flour can contain potentially harmful germs like E.coli. This said, E. coli can’t be killed by the grinding or bleaching process. In order to kick those germs out of the edible equation, flour should be baked or cooked thoroughly to kill harmful germs and prevent illness.
The second problem with eating raw cookie dough comes from eggs. Many cookie recipes call for eggs. Eggs help add moisture and structure to cookie dough. However, raw eggs can contain Salmonella. Salmonella can cause food poisoning and gastrointestinal discomfort. While food poisoning may sound like a minor inconvenience, it can be deadly to those with compromised immune systems, children, and the elderly.
You may have eaten raw cookie dough as a kid and been fine. That’s the thing. It’s a gamble. However, once you’ve suffered from food poisoning, it is not an experience you want to repeat. Protect yourself and your family and skip the raw stuff. Make a batch of edible cookie dough at home instead. Your LĒVO infusion machine can help.
Using Your LĒVO to Make Edible Cookie Dough
One of the most important ingredients in edible cookie dough is butter. Butter gives the raw dough richness and flavor. Adding even more flavor to your edible cookie dough is easy when you use infused butter. Adding botanical-infused butter to your dough can give you beneficial physical and psychological effects and amp up the taste.
Thankfully, with the LĒVO family of infusion products, you can customize your recipe and tailor it to your personal preferences.
For large batches of edible cookie dough, consider using the LĒVO C. The LĒVO C is a powerhouse appliance capable of churning out large batches of oil, butter, honey and milk. The jumbo pod can hold up to one ounce of dried herb, while the glass basin holds up to one liter of the product you choose to infuse.
The LĒVO II can transform almost any herb or flower into an infused taste sensation. Precise time and temperature controls help give you a quality result every time you use your machine. The unique dry and activate cycles of the LĒVO II awaken the potency and extend the shelf life of your infusion creations. Plus, all the components of the machine are dishwasher-safe and non-toxic.
The LĒVO Lux is the most refined and elegant machine in the collection. With a high-shine metallic finish and stylish design, you’ll never want to take this appliance off your kitchen counter. The LĒVO Lux can help you transform ingredients into Michelin-Star quality meals. It includes an enhanced Dry+ cycle to help you get the most out of your herb and flower. The LĒVO Lux also features three unique dispense modes.
Any of the LĒVO family of infusion machines can help you turn boring butter into a flavorful infusion perfect to use in an edible cookie dough recipe.
To get started, place your flower or herb into the power pod. Do not grind the plant too fine, for it can leak into your final product and impact the texture. You can also use a cinnamon infusion like cinnamon honey butter to further elevate your edible cookie dough.
Place your material in the power pod and select the dry or activate cycle depending on the plant. Next, place two sticks of butter in your machine’s reservoir and begin your infusion. Use the LĒVO Infusion Calculator for precise time and temperature instructions. For a more potent butter, fill two power pods. The LĒVO II and LĒVO Lux can accommodate up to two power pods for a more potent final product.

- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons milk
- ½ to ¾ cup mini milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
165 degrees. Flour should begin to smell nutty and may turn golden.

- Combined soft, but not melted infused butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar.

- Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
- Chill the dough in the refrigerator.
- Eat it out of the bowl right away or roll it into balls and keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Cooking flour kills potentially harmful germs and bacteria. When cooked, flour gives off a nutty smell and can change color, becoming golden or brown. Do not skip this step!
If your dough comes out too crumbly and dry, add a little more butter or milk. Too wet? Add more heat-treated flour. You can customize this cookie dough recipe to your taste preferences. Add a pinch of cinnamon to add depth and warmth. Decrease the amount of chocolate chips and add a handful of your favorite chopped nuts. The possibilities are endless!
