So it turns out some of our bakers on the live stream are against eating raw cookie dough. Blasphemy, I say! 😉 Fellow cookie-dough-eaters, let us rally!

    i think they might be saying that for legal reasons lol, since it is possible to get sick from eating raw cookie dough due to the raw eggs

    probably why they specifically make cookie dough flavored things like ice cream or actual "edible" cookie dough lol

    The way around that is to just make cookie dough with no eggs in.

    Have done all my life (was 76 the other day....) Never had any problems. They do have to say things like that though to protect themselves from legal issues.

    That too! Snickerdoodles for instance (husband's favorite) have no eggs - just butter, powdered sugar, flour, chopped pecans, cinnamon and sugar for rolling dough balls in before baking.

    Maybe. But the hype about eating raw eggs being dangerous is similar to the hype about the dangers of drinking raw milk. Eating raw eggs and drinking raw milk is not dangerous so long as the chickens and dairy cows are healthy and the products are handled cleanly.

    I might be biased though. I grew up drinking raw milk and eating farm fresh eggs. (peacock eggs are huge and delicious too by the way)

    I prefer most cookie dough to the actual cookies, so if it were just me it would never make it past that point. I only bake for the whole family, though.

    Flour is the biggest salmonella risk when eating raw dough. Not the eggs.

    Interesting. I didn't know that until you pointed it out and I looked it up to verify. Thanks.

    We used to take handfuls of wheat out of the bed of the truck and chew it into gum when I was younger too. Yeah, you can turn a handful of wheat kernels into gum by chewing it and not swallowing it. It loses it's flavor super fast though.

    Peacock eggs aren't much different than free range chicken eggs, they're just much, much bigger is all. A peacock egg is about 3x the size of a chicken egg. Peacocks and free range chickens eat lots of insects so their eggs have bright orange yolks that stand up in the pan and don't break nearly as easy as a store bought egg. I still can't eat anything other than free range farm fresh eggs. The difference is extreme.

    Another aside, farm fresh eggs don't have to be refrigerated because they haven't been washed with a chemical that breaks down the shell membrane.

    I did, when I made a weekly batch of white choc chip cookies for my boys to take to school. Been a few years though since they graduated, and I need to watch my weight now, so no more cookies. Or cookie dough.

    If I can put the time in to measure the ingredients and make the cookie dough, I'll put in just a little more time to fully bake the cookies. Though, more often than not, I end up putting the cookies in the oven for slightly too long...

    Raw flour is equally, or perhaps more, likely to cause problems compared to the eggs.

    <Confused European noises>

    And it depends on what type of cookie dough or batter I've made. But having a little treat as I make the cookies? Most likely.

    You can bake your flour to a certain high temp (72C or 160F) before use to make it safe for eating. I like cookie dough but I'd rather just finish the baking process asap. Sometimes I eat a few bites

    I'm one of those people who is thoroughly convinced that the dough tastes better than the cookie, and have been known to purchase pre-made cookie dough only to eat my portion raw while others stare at me as if I've lost my mind XD

    Yeah.

    It lets me check if I messed anything up in the process plus in some recipes it tastes better than the final product.

    I'm young enough and healthy enough where it's highly likely that I'd bounce back in the event that I got unlucky with eating it.

    When I get a bit older or if I develop health issues, I'll probably have to stop being so lazy and toss the flour in the microwave for a bit and pasteurize the eggs but for now I feel like I can be lazy.

    Other!

    It's both for me, because cookie or whatever else that is a dough before baking, during preparation, I always eat a bit of the dough (hmmm... so good) and later enjoy the cookie/cake after baking. o:)

    The dough always tastes better to me. I bake stuff for husband to eat - I however eat some raw, and call it enough, and good. Sweets are really not any longer very appealing to me. Asbach Dark Chocolate-covered Cherries in Brandy however....

    I don't like... Make a snack out of it, but when I was a kid my mom would let me lick the bowl which I enjoyed very much. And I'm 36 now but if I make cookies myself I'm absolutely licking the spoon/whisk.

    I was shocked when my wife acted repulsed by the idea and told me it could be dangerous. She was very annoyed when I acted flippant in response. I'm normally the "fun fact" person between us, and frequently get very annoyed when she won't be swayed by professional consensus. So she accused me of that. I just shrugged and said, "the only thing I believe more than a professional opinion is 20+ years of firsthand experience." Oooh I must be an annoying man to live with.

    But yes, I recognize there is a potential for danger there. Seems to me it must be pretty miniscule though.

    Off topic but funny (to me,) my poor wife also tries to insist I wear bandaids and apply some type of Neosporin every time I get a cut or scrape. Which I basically never do. I told her once "it's not even bleeding anymore why on earth would I put on a bandaid?" Lol. Then again one time I was definitely still bleeding and said "best way to make it stop is to let a little blood dry on top. Who needs a bandaid when you can have a scab?" I've also said "fresh air helps wounds heal actually," which IS true I believe. One time I told her "bah, I'll just rub some dirt on it," and she really looked aghast. I was just kidding that time... But it was something we used to say in the Army.

    Moral of the story I guess is... I annoy my wife. No wait...

    "rub some dirt on it" sure brought back some flashbacks from the past for me. The younger generation needs a little more tough love like this I think. If you're not bleeding to death or need an ambulance, just rub some dirt on it. B)
