Raw Cookie Dough and Making it Even Better

The other day I made a huge batch of the safe to eat raw cookie dough (you know, the stuff with out the eggs). When I say huge, I mean a large double batch because apparently 24 oz packages of chocolate chip cookies look the same as 12 oz. So what exactly does one do with two batches of raw cookie dough?

Bake it? What? No! Never!

I mean, that’s just not the point here. Raw cookie dough is that “forbidden” food that our mothers didn’t want us to eat because we could get sick. Sure, this kind is the safe stuff, but let’s not get drastic and cook it!

In fact, here are some ideas of what to do with it:

1) Use it as filling in between cake layers. Think of the yum-gasm when you bite into a cake that has cake and cookie dough!

2) Use it as a dipping sauce. Forget chocolate covered strawberries, bring me some cookie dough covered strawberries… And blueberries and bananas too, while you’re at it!

3) In an ice cream sundae bar. We all set up the sundae bars every one in a while: multiple ice cream types, sprinkles, hot fudge and other syrups, etc. Why not add cookie dough to the mix?

4) Freeze’em. Whether you’re freezing to save it for later or you decide to decide to freeze popsicle style, you can’t go wrong. If you do save it popsicle style, try dipping it in chocolate or strawberry sauce. Then you’ll get a double wow popsicle!

5) Make cookie dough balls. Roll them in balls (or cut them into shapes with cookie cutters) and then dip those bad boys in some kind of chocolate. Then you’ve got cookie dough and chocolate in one tasty bite!

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and have some yum-gasms!

(And if you're unsure of how to make the safe to eat raw cookie dough, Google has plenty of recipes for all kinds of safe to eat cookie dough)
