Every time that I make cookies, I am so tempted to lick a spoon, paddle, or side of a bowl.
To be honest, who really is not tempted to like the cookie dough off of a bowl or spoon?
How to Make Edible Cookie Dough
Raw cookie dough has a reputation for many of us. It is one of the ultimate purge foods that we think about when we are looking for a good binge.
The problem with raw cookie dough is that it is raw.
When you are talking about raw, specifically in the terms of cookie dough, it is the raw egg that can be a nasty culprit. But, what about those people who add raw eggs to their protein shakes or what about Rocky who would drink it?
Sorry, the experts say that raw eggs can contain Salmonella .
Salmonella is not a fun thing to have and is certainly not worth eating in cookie dough. Sorry.
Raw eggs can, maybe not always, but, can lead to Salmonella poisoning. You will probably know that you have Salmonella poisoning when you get that nasty diarrhea, fever, chills, and abdominal pain.
Salmonella is why edible cookie dough can be your answer when you are looking to binge on something or lick off that spoon. But, the good news is that you can also bake that edible cookie dough and enjoy a delicious cookie, if the dough were to make it that far.
Edible cookie dough is basically an eggless cookie dough.
Folks with allergies to eggs probably have been eating these eggless cookies for years. The rest of us look at edible cookie dough as the kind of cookie dough that we can eat before we bake it.
Eggs are a source of liquid that is used in regular cookie dough.
Without the addition of eggs, a cookie dough can become really dry. We will add water to make up for that. Some people use milk or even applesauce.
