My kids have never had cookie dough before. I know – its a right of passage. Personally, I don’t like it. I never really have. I don’t like cookie dough ice cream, I don’t lick the bowl when I make cookies. I just don’t think to give the kids cookie dough. Now with the raw eggs and such – they just haven’t had it. I got the Happy Herbivore cookbook in the mail and saw the recipe for the “Raw Cookie Dough”. I had all the ingredients.
I told the kids if they were good, we’d make cookie-dough and eat it properly. That means – out of the bowl and in front of the couch. I had them make it. Took – 5 minutes, TOPS. We gathered around the TV with our spoons and dug in. As you can see from the picture, it was a HUGE hit.
