Do you eat raw cookie dough?

Growing up, my mom always made cookies and we've shared many yummy moments licking the spoon and scraping the bowl. Then they start making all these rules about salmonella.....Do you eat the cookie dough AND do you let your kids? Just wondering if people have really stopped eating cookie dough.....

  • I LOVE cookie dough, I still eat it, and I will let my daughter eat it. Of course its not huge amounts, like you said its licking the spoon and scraping the bowl, same as with cake and/or brownie mix.

  • I eat it and love it. In my hometown the Junior class sells the best cookie dough for a fund raiser. I eat the whole 5 lbs. raw. Not in one sitting. I let dd eat a little at a time, like licking the spoon, or the mixer attachments.
