Like basically every child, my favorite part of making cookies with my mom was tasting the cookie dough. Her go-to chocolate chip recipe was magical, and I wanted to just eat the balls of dough whole. As I got older and was less carefully watched, I definitely tried this. It was, of course, amazing.
I did, of course, get a stomachache.
Now, however, genius folks are making dough with eggs and heating up raw ingredients like flour to make it perfectly safe to eat large amounts of cookie dough. It's a better world, and these scrumptious photos are the result.
