You can actually get sick from raw cookie dough. In 2009, Nestlé had to recall nearly 4 million packages of its cookie dough after 77 people in 30 states contracted E. coli poisoning. With any raw food, the risk of foodborne illness is alive and very real.
Lucky for any cookie-dough addicts out there, who just can’t wait for the oven to work its magic, we have a cookie dough recipe that is meant solely for your raw enjoyment — sans eggs, packed with toppings, and oh-so delicious.
