*If you’re concerned about the potential for bacteria in raw flour, you can quickly heat treat it by spreading it out onto a baking sheet and toasting it at 350°F for 5 minutes. Let it cool, then add to your cookie dough mixture.
**Don’t have half and half? Just use 2 1/2 cups heavy cream and 1/2 cup milk instead.
