I have this week discovered the delights of cookie dough, and the homebaking of said product. In fact, I may even be addicted already.
However can someone tell me why the makers recommend you don't eat the dough raw? Cos if it's like, poisonous or something, I'm in some seriously deep shite.

If itís poisonous, Iím in BIG trouble! In fact, I think Iíd be dead by now if it was. Seriously though, I think itís because it contains raw egg, which can cause salmonella poisoning. So, yeah, in a roundabout way, it could be poisonous, but if you keep in the fridge, you should be alright.
IT's the raw egg. And seriously, I'd have been dead long ago too. Sometimes, I never ever get any baked. Sometimes, I buy the dough just to eat it, and not to bake at all.
Oh! the horror!
I buy it just to eat it raw, too. Yum!!
Everyone eats raw cookie dough. Maybe we're all dead.
I'm in agreement - it is most certainly from the fact that there are raw eggs in the dough.
But I am also in agreement with the assessment that we'd all be dead. I mean, come on - they actually sell cookie dough ice cream with raw cookie dough in it!
They just want to protect themselves from salmonella.
The key to protecting yourself is to inoculate yourself with daily doses of cookie dough, so that you can build up an immunity :-)
It is the raw egg. Chances are you won't die from eating it, but you may get a kinda sickish. If I'm gonna eat a bunch of cookie dough in one sitting, I'll use those liquid eggs. No risk of sickness. I can fatten myself up with no fear.
... and for $40 you can get yourself a fabbo icecream maker and make your very own chocolate chip cookie dough icecream.
Can feel my arteries hardening as we speak.
I haven't had raw cookie dough in years! But just thinking about it brings back warm memories...mmmm
i still have the sesame street library books from when i was little, and in one, the cookie monster gives you a recipe for cookie dough.
i found it and made it for my kids. the next time i made it, it was for me and it never went anywhere near the oven.
c is for cookie dough, thats good enough for me
If raw cookie dough were harmful - - I'd have been six feet under a LONG time ago.
When I was a kid, I always used to eat hotdogs right out of the fridge,
liked em better that way than cooked. They were precooked and everything
after all. Well, a few months back, I was BBQing hotdogs, and noticed a big
old warning on the packet to not eat them if you hadn't (re)cooked them first!
god i wish i could get cookie dough out here.....
I think I'm addicted to cookie dough. But I don't have it on a regular basis, trust me. I just have it once in a while when I really have the urge. If I haven't had it in months I'll have some. But other than that I'm really health consious. Last night and today I practically finished the whole role of cookie dough by my self. Trust me I'm not going to have cookie dough in a long time. But at least I'm still skinny I mean I only weigh 86 pounds. And trust me I'm very active.
