Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

Think of this eggless dough as cookie butter and use it as you would jam or peanut butter; just a little bit will enhance your toast, milkshake, ice cream - or make a cookie sandwich (smush some of the dough in between two vanilla wafers).

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon fine salt

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 tablespoons plain yogurt

Directions

  1. Microwave the flour in a microwave-safe bowl for 1 minute. Remove and stir well. Microwave for an additional minute or until the temperature reaches 180 F. Sift into a medium bowl, then whisk in the cinnamon, baking soda and salt (see Cook's Note).
  2. Beat the brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter and yogurt with an electric mixer on medium-high speed in a large bowl until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until well incorporated. Turn off the beaters and use your hands to help combine if needed. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Cook’s Note

Microwaving the flour to 180 degrees F may reduce the risk of foodborne illness associated with eating it raw or undercooked. This eggless dough can also be baked. Roll tablespoons of the dough into balls. Space out evenly on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F until the bottoms are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
