Our Food Editor, Irene Ngo, developed this recipe for our friends over at Today's Parent Magazine. These safe-to-eat treats come in four different flavours and (like regular cookie dough) are irresistible.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter , softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp 2% milk


  • HEAT a large non-stick pan over medium-high. Add the flour. Toast, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 5 to 6 min. Set aside to cool completely.
  • BEAT butter with sugar, using an electric mixer on medium-high, in a large bowl, until fluffy, 2 to 3 min. Beat in vanilla, salt and flour until combined. Beat in milk until mixture is smooth.
  • STIR in your favourite mix-ins and serve in cones or cups.
