I don’t know about you, but I prefer raw cookie dough to baked cookies. Everyone in my family agrees with me, except my grandmother. Growing up, whenever we would bake cookies together she fervently discouraged me from eating the raw cookie dough. “There could be salmonella in those eggs.” This became a running joke in my family because she was so passionate about it.
The thing is, grandma’s advice is true. You could get really sick from eating raw eggs. To avoid this complication, I just eliminated the eggs from this no bake recipe.
Another thing has been going around that people are considered that raw flour contains other dangerous bacteria as well. If you’re concerned about this (I know grandma would be), you can toast the flour. Although, I didn’t do it for this recipe, I’m going to tell you how just in case you would like to. (Note: Do this at your own risk.)
Simply spread the amount of flour you are planning to use on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes at 350° F. Once cool, you can use it as you were planning to use it.
This year, I plan on passing out edible dough to my family throughout the holiday season. I think they are going to love it.
