Most kids growing up have heard (and ignored) the spiel many times over: don't eat raw cookie dough or you'll get salmonella poisoning and die. We had our little friends raw eggs to thank for that one, but a new line of ready-to-eat cookie dough bites does away with the eggs entirely to create — yes — edible, salmonella-free cookie dough.
They're called Unbakeables and they come in nine different flavors, including "Thin Mint," birthday cake, peanut butter & jelly, oatmeal raisin, and of course, chocolate chip. Each 3 or 10-pack tube is available for purchase online and in a few stores and farmer's markets in Connecticut and New York.
Not lucky enough to live out there or too impatient to wait for shipping? (Come on, you don't even want to wait for the cookies to bake.) We've found you a five-minute recipe, here.
