Ingredients for Gluten Free Edible Sugar Cookie Dough Truffles

Butter: adds richness and a creamy texture to the dough. It helps to bind the ingredients together and contributes to the overall flavor of the cookie dough.

Granulated & Brown Sugar provides the necessary sweetness to the cookie dough bites, enhancing the flavor and making them irresistibly delicious!

Egg Replacer & Water: the combination of egg replacer and water helps to mimic the binding properties of eggs. It helps hold the dough together and maintain its desired consistency all while being safe to eat raw. I love using the Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer!

Vanilla Extract: adds delightful aroma and flavor to the cookie dough bites.

Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour: provides the structure and texture to the cookie dough all while making it safe to eat for those with gluten sensitivities. It helps bind the ingredients and gives the cookie dough bites a soft and tender texture.

Salt: enhances the flavors in the dough by balancing the sweetness and adding depth. In addition, it brings out the chocolate flavors in the dough!

White Chocolate Candy Melts (plus vegetable oil): enrobes our truffles with a thin white chocolate shell of goodness.

Sprinkles: These little bursts of color and joy turn each truffle into a festive masterpiece, completing the holiday magic in every delicious bite.

How to Heat Treat Gluten Free Flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Add flour to a cake pan or brownie pan (any kind of pan/oven safe dish that has a rim).
  3. Bake for 10-15 minutes, ensuring that the flour reaches a temperature of 160°F to eliminate bacteria. Let the flour cool.
  4. Once cooled, sift the flour to eliminate lumps and store in an airtight container or use immediately.

Helpful Tips!

Room Temperature Ingredients: Before diving into the joy of creating these Christmas-themed truffles, ensure that your ingredients, especially the butter and gluten-free flour, are at room temperature. This helps in achieving the right consistency for the cookie dough.

Invest Time in Mixing: Creaming the butter and sugars until light and fluffy is the secret to a velvety cookie dough. Take your time during this step, allowing the ingredients to fully incorporate. This contributes to the delightful texture of the truffles.

Dress it Up with Sprinkles: Have fun with the sprinkles! After coating each truffle, immediately sprinkle them to ensure the decorations stick. This adds a festive touch and makes each truffle a unique work of edible art.

Uniform Truffle Sizes: Use a cookie scoop to ensure uniform truffle sizes. This not only makes for a visually appealing batch but also ensures even and consistent chilling time for these Gluten Free Edible Sugar Cookie Dough Truffles.

Tips for working with Truffles and Coating Chocolate

Chill Before Dipping (and after dipping): After your cookie dough has been scooped and rolled into balls, place them in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes before dipping them in the white chocolate coating. This will make them easier to handle while dipping them in chocolate! Once your truffles are coated and decorated, let them chill in the refrigerator for a bit before serving. This allows the chocolate coating to set properly, resulting in a delightful, firm texture when you bite into them.

Mindful Chocolate Coating: When melting the white chocolate candy melts, use a gentle heat and stir frequently. I recommend microwaving the chocolate in a glass bowl (or large liquid measuring cup) for 30 seconds at a time and stirring after each time in the microwave. Continue doing 30 second increments in the microwave until all the chocolate is melted. Once the chocolate is melted, adding a touch of vegetable oil helps create a smoother consistency for coating. Be patient during this step, as rushing can result in a less-than-ideal coating texture.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why can’t you eat raw cookie dough?

There are two main reasons why it’s not recommended to eat raw cookie dough:

  1. Raw Eggs: raw eggs carry the risk of salmonella contamination which can cause foodborne illnesses. Therefore, eating raw cookie dough puts you at risk of getting sick.
  2. Uncooked flour: raw flour can also harbor harmful bacteria, such as E. coli. Flour is normally not subject to any treatment that would kill these bacteria’s, and consuming raw flour can lead to a foodborne illness. Cooking or heat-treating flour is necessary to remove that risk.

What is heat treated flour?

Heat treated flour is flour that has been exposed to a high temperature to kill potentially harmful bacteria that can cause food borne illnesses. Heat treating flour removes the risk of foodborne illnesses associated with consuming raw or undercooked flour.

By baking flour in an oven at a high temperature, the flour reaches a temperature sufficient to kill off any bacteria that may be present. This process helps make the flour safer for consumption, particularly in recipes where the flour is not being cooked at all, such as these Gluten Free Edible Sugar Cookie Dough Truffles!

Can I add other mix-in’s to the batter?

Heck yah! To really elevate these Gluten Free Edible Sugar Cookie Truffles, you could add MORE Holiday Sprinkles into the dough for a fun holiday surprise when your guests bite into these little delights!
