Safe To Eat Sugar Cookie Dough

I always loved eating cookie dough as a kid.  However, as I have gotten older my fear of food poisoning has curbed my desired to eat anything with raw eggs.  So I was thrilled when I found this recipe for safe cookie dough.  Now I can eat to my heart's content with my only fear being a sugar overdose!

Safe To Eat Sugar Cookie Dough
adapted from Willow Bird Baking

1/2 cup Butter, softened
3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 1/3 cup All-Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1-2 Tablespoons Water

In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Mix in flour and vanilla.  Add water one Tablespoon at a time until you reach a cookie dough consistency.

NOTE: This recipe is just for people who want to eat the dough itself.  You cannot bake this.  Without eggs, baking powder, etc. they won't bake right.

Replace the butter with Earth's Balance and you have a vegan sugar cookie recipe!

I'll bake these next week, and I'm sure my vegan housemate will appreciate it! Are these good for cookie cutter or just rolling and baking?

Neither actually. :( Sorry, I should have been more specific. This is just for people who like to eat the dough and not the cookies. Without the eggs, baking powder, etc. they won't bake up right. You should be able to modify just about any recipe to make it vegan though. This link talks about the best egg substitutes to use depending on the type of recipe:

I say throw it in ice cream and cover THAT in chocolate! But yeah, I think making this into sort of truffle sounds awesome!
