Raw cookie dough is the best part about making cookies if you ask me. As a child, I was always told that it was unsafe to eat too much raw cookie dough. Of course, I rebelled against this nonsense at every chance that I got.

Pretty sure I never got sick from eating it, and I do believe it’s a myth. But, just to be on the safe side, there are recipes out there for edible cookie batter. Dough you can sit and eat raw to your heart’s content. πŸ˜‰ I received the book Cookie Doughlicious for review. This post contains affiliate links.

Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

Once you have your dough, you can use it in recipes or just eat it raw. I am not saying it’s healthy; only that it is safe to eat because it does not contain raw eggs. With my batch of Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough, I made cookie dough truffles.
