  • Most likely it is the same kind of cookie dough. It has raw egg in it; I would not eat it if I were you.

  • The reason 4 not eating raw eggs is the risk of contracting salmanilla or other harmful bacteria. I think if it's frozen, those bacteria r killed. I say eat up, but if u r not sure call the doc.

  • Salmanilla is fairly rare in pasturized eggs. Go for it!!

  • 99% of the cookie dough in cookie dough ice cream is egg free, simply because it's not safe to eat raw egg. I'd say go for it.
    I have a recipe for egg free cookie dough that you're supposed to eat raw. It doesn't bake up at all.

    Go for it.

  • I craved cookie dough at 5 and 6 months and ate a big chunk of it everyday. I was fine. I wouldn't worry about it, but if you are unsure just ask your doctor. Thet also say not to eat hot dogs, but I did that too and didn't know I wasn't suppose to eat it until a couple months after so I think you will be fine.
