Cookie Dough Is Not for Cookies

The other day I was at the grocery store. I had reached the “dessert” part of my shopping list, and my stomach informed me that making cookies was a good idea. So I headed over to the cookie dough section.

As I reached for a tube of cookie dough, this caught my eye:


The package emphasized that this was not for baking. It’s formulated specifically for eating straight out of the container.

It was a little pricey ($7), but it seemed like it would last a while, so I bought it.

So far I’ve been very pleased with the decision. It’s really delicious cookie dough, and a few spoonfuls makes for a perfect after-lunch dessert. It could use a few more chocolate chips, but that’s a minor, easily fixable problem.

Have you ever tried anything like this? Do you like raw cookie dough?

  1. I’m not a fan of raw cookie dough, but I do have a recipe for chocolate chip cookies that does not use egg, so would be ok to eat raw. And it would cost you way less than $7. And, if you chose, you could also bake it into, y’know, cookies.

    • That sounds delicious! I’ve made it before with the egg substitute you can buy at the grocery store, which works fine.

  2. $7 for such a little container is a little pricey, even for such a delicious treat. I’ve made the eggless dough before (and currently may have some
    I whipped up this morning sitting in my fridge for snacking later today), and used this recipe, with a few minor modifications:
    That one is not meant to be baked, and tastes pretty close to the cookie dough I make for my dark chocolate chip cookies.

  3. Irony: that after realizing that food is safer and tastier when cooked, when re-embrace as high-priced items raw cookie dough and raw seafood.
