I Need This In My Life

When I was younger and visited the States, there was a lot of junk food that I found fascinating. In the beginning I liked most of it as it was so novel, but then over the years I started losing my taste for almost all of it as my taste buds matured and I started to dislike the fake flavor of most of those junky foods. One thing however, which I will always love and adore them for inventing is cookie dough ice cream.

Raw American cookie dough is one of the most delicious things I have ever encountered in my entire life. While it is really bad for you to eat a lot of real raw cookie dough, to this day I have to admit that licking the bowl whenever I make cookies is the single best part of the entire process. That’s why, when I saw this video, I couldn’t help but share it here.



This is pure food porn for me, so much so that my brain does not want to admit to itself that it exists beyond the realm of fantasy. This is something I really need in my life.

Cookie dough is, I think, my ultimate guilty pleasure, the one I’m most embarrassed to admit to but one that I will never stop loving. Do you have any that you find hard to admit, but can’t kick?

    @2: Unpasteurized eggs. Homemade is done with raw eggs which have microbiological issues. Especially bad if the dough is not chilled. Then round up the usual suspects: butter and sugar. But then it never bothered me. And you could give your tongue a workout licking the beaters.
    To make it more sinful: cookie dough cheesecake.

      Actually, IMO, the raw eggs are less of a problem than the raw flour. True, raw eggs carry the risk of salmonella, but it’s a risk that many people in Europe take, many desserts (including tiramisu) are made with raw eggs. To eliminate this risk, you can always purchase pasteurized eggs. Eating large quantities of raw flour, on the other hand, can give you serious digestive issues. The flour will absorb water in your gut, leading to things like a bad stomach ache and constipation, depending on how much of it you eat. It’s the reason people who lived through the war (like my grandmother) used to eat flour mixed with water, to plug up their stomach and not make them feel hunger.
      That’s why the video talks about heat inactivated flour, they process it so that it wont bloat in your stomach.
      As for the butter and sugar, eating it raw is no more or less unhealthy than eating the actual cookie, so that’s a hit you just take the moment you decide to make cookies.
