How To Make Birthday Cake Cookie Dough? Cookie dough mixed with sprinkles, rolled into balls and placed on parchment paper

Calling all cookie dough enthusiasts! If you have a birthday celebration approaching, why not take a break from the cake this year and craft some delicious birthday cake cookie dough?

The recipe for this cookie dough promises to result in the most mouth-watering cookies your loved one could ever hope for on their birthday. It's a lovely way to celebrate while deviating from the predictability of a traditional cake.

The following recipe is both rich and delicious and mimics the flavor of a conventional birthday cake, with the added benefit of being safe to eat. 

However, as with all edible cookie dough, it is not meant for baking. It lacks the essential ingredients required for the baking process, but it's the perfect treat for all cookie dough lovers. 

If you're interested in baked birthday cake cookies, we've got just the thing for you but we will get to that at the end of this short blog post. For now, let's dive right in and start making this wonderful recipe.

Birthday Cake Cookie Dough Recipe

  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 tbs) of butter 
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-2 cups of flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Birthday sprinkles (funfetti)
  • White chocolate chips

Before we start, we should stress that regular cookie dough is not safe to eat if made conventionally. There are certain steps you need to take in order to ensure your dough is safe to eat - and free of any potential dangers posed by fresh ingredients. 

A common misconception is that raw flour is safe to eat when actually, it isn't. Flour can actually pose the same risk as raw eggs. The trick to circumventing this issue? Simply toast the flour!

How To Safely Toast Flour

Spread out your flour on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and slip it into an oven preheated to 350 degrees. Let it bake in the heat for about 10 minutes until it's lightly tanned and gives off a delicate, golden glow.

Next, simply lift the parchment paper and gently shake the flour into your mixing bowl. Not only will you have flour that's safe to consume, but the toasting process also mellows out the heavy flour flavor.

The Perfect Cookie Dough Blend

Combine your butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt in the bowl. Start mixing on low, then switch to medium until fluffy, around 3 minutes.

Lower the speed and blend until combined, then add milk and beat till creamy. Mix in your sprinkles for a little birthday color and chocolate chips. Enjoy right away, or chill if preferred.

If you prefer your dough a bit more solid, chilling it in the refrigerator for a few hours is the way to go.

And that's all there is to it! You've now got cookie dough that tastes just like a birthday cake, with very little effort.
