To Bake Or Not To Bake

I ordered some cookie dough, chocolate chunk, from a school fundraiser. Yes, how nice I am.

It just got here. Now I'm faced with a dilemma. Normally I would get out a spoon and have a taste whenever I felt like it. However, when I stated my intentions, I was told I couldn't do that. Supposedly raw cookie dough isn't good for you. Huh? Never had any trouble with it before.

My thought is this. It has to be so loaded with preservatives anyway to last as long as it does that it's not going to hurt me. And it's not like I eat much at one time. No, eating the dough raw takes a lot longer to finish the container than it would to eat the cookies if I baked them.

Besides, this way I don't ever have to wash a cookie sheet, nor do I need to figure out where to store the cookies. If I use a plastic spoon I can even store it right in the container since it's not like anyone else is going to have any. I don't know about you but to me, it seems much easier my way and they taste just as good.

Save a spoon for me! I'll be there in about 6 hours or so...if I don't make it, think of me while eating every other bite???

Ummm, it has something to do with the raw eggs in the cookie dough.

Best wishes with it!

I personally would buy cookies already baked and packaged as mother nature meant them to be - wrapped in cellophane. If you eat the dough raw then that would be going against mother nture.
