How to Heat Treat Flour

If you’re worried about eating raw cookie dough, here’s how to heat-treat your flour if you want to be extra safe.

  • Microwave: Place flour in a microwave safe bowl or dish.  Heat for 30-45 seconds, up to 1 minute. Check the temperature of the flour using an instant read thermometer of 160F.  After heat treating, if there are clumps of flour, be sure to run the flour through a sifter to help break up any clumps to prevent any lumps in your dough.
  • Oven: Preheat oven to 350F degrees.  Spread the flour out onto a large baking sheet.  Bake for about 5 minutes, making sure the flour is not browned or toasted looking.  Ensure that the flour reached an internal temperature of 160F by using an instant read thermometer.
