  • With raw egg probably not the best idea. However, the chances of getting sick are very small, just as small as getting sick from deli meat. So it's up to you. I think I had a tiny bite with my son and he's okay :)

  • If you just lick the spoon I don't think its a big deal. If you sit and eat a bowl probably not because of the raw egg factor.

  • It depends on how much you're eating, if anything you might feel sick afterwards. I lick the bowl of the bater everytime i make cookies or brownies. It's a personal perference otherwise you could always ask your doctor if it's ok. good luck to you!

  • Well I thawed a whole batch of cookie dough just to eat a few spoonfuls of it and then put it away.
    :( haha. Turns out it was recalled about a month later! If its just a little bit you are probably fine but there is always the concern of raw eggs involved.

  • please be careful!! There's a nationwide recall of Nestle toll house cookie dough. They found it contaminated with e.Coli bacteria
