How To Heat Treat Flour For Cookie Dough Layer:
PRO-TIP: I highly recommend heat treating your flour before mixing it into the recipe. You can do this by microwaving the flour for 1 minute and 15 seconds (stopping and mixing it after 15-second intervals). This is good for heating the flour to prevent any bacteria.
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread flour in an even layer.
- Bake for 5-7 minutes, use a thermometer to check that the flour reached 160F (72C) immediately after removing from oven.
- Once flour has reached 160F (72C) allow it to cool and run it through a sifter to break up any clumps that may have formed while baking.
