Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

That's right. Here's a sweet way to use up those left over hard boiled eggs in a delicious cookie dough containing no raw eggs.

  1. 1 cup (2 sticks) Challenge Butter, softened
  2. ¾ cup brown sugar
  3. ½ cup granulated sugar
  4. ¾ teaspoon salt
  5. 2 hard boiled large eggs, peeled and finely diced
  6. 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 1½ cups bitter-sweet or semi-sweet Chocolate chips
  9. ¾ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. 2

    Cream butter and add sugars; beat until light and fluffy.

  3. 3

    Add finely diced eggs and salt and beat until well mixed.

  4. 4

    Combine flour and baking soda in a small bowl and then fold into creamed mixture; then beat until well blended.

  5. 5

    Stir in chocolate chips and (optional) nuts.

  6. 6

    Drop by medium cookie scoop or rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.

  7. 7

    Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cookies cool on pan for 5 minutes before transfer in to cooling rack.

I haven't tried this recipe and likely will not. The recipe gives the impression that it is OK to eat the cookie dough raw, even though the eggs are cooked. I assure you, it is not. It is not safe to eat raw flour as it may contain a variety of insects or bacteria. Even the King Arthur Flour people advise "do not eat raw flour" on their bags of flour.

Thanks for commenting, Laura. We are not making any claims about raw cookie dough. Instead, this is a baked cookie recipe that results in cookies that look and taste like traditional chocolate chip cookies—except the recipe calls for hard boiled eggs to replace raw eggs. (This recipe was developed to use up left-over hard boiled Easter eggs.) We are not suggesting people should eat this dough uncooked. However, using cooked eggs does eliminate some concerns people have with eating raw cookie dough. We hope that clarifies why we are sharing this recipe.

I have been eating raw dough of allllll sorts for 38 + years and have NEVER EVER gotten sick. Not going to stop now. People these days.....geeze. loosen up a bit...it's a cookie recipe!



Cookies still cook while they are cooling so just because they look alittle under done doesnt mean you are eating raw cookie dough... and honestly eating the dough/batter is my favorite part of baking...
