My Pinterest addiction struck again the other day and I felt compelled to try out another seemingly great sounding recipe..Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Sounds great right? Dough you can safely snack on~score!
So I used my Google-Fu skills to make sure I had the best recipe and most bloggers were basically repeating the same one to mostly rave reviews so off to the kitchen I went…
My initial reaction upon tasting it was ehhh, it’s ok.
Soooo I started tossing in some more butter and sugar and a tad more vanilla and the result was a little tastier ( I mean come on how can you beat more butter, sugar, and vanilla, right?!?) but still not something that I would rank equal to an eggy cc cookie dough.
I wasn’t even going to post the recipe on here but the hubby told me I had a duty to warn people lol. So really this post is to serve as a PSA against the evils of eggless cookie dough. NOT worth your time or ingredients…not to mention the calories!
But don’t fret my friends, I have made it my mission to find a recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough that you can safely snack on without fear of salmonella. I have a few ideas up my sleeve and I will be sure to post once I have a worthy recipe!
And for those of you who’ve been snacking on regular cookie dough for years, according to several internet sources only about 1 in 30,000 eggs actually contains salmonella. Of course that statistic will be little comfort should you get sick so maybe hold off on the dough until we can find a good recipe 🙂
