Many a blissful moment of indulging in a taste of unbaked cookie dough has been rudely interrupted by a reminder that eating that sticky, gooey, delicious sweet stuff could make you sick.
But raw cookie dough has moved from being just those little lumps in your pint of ice cream to a real food experience, and these days shops are set up to sell special ready-to-eat raw cookie dough, without fear of illness. It’s a full on trend, with safe-to-eat dough being served up by the container, cone, cup, and scoop all over the U.S. and Canada.
Now one local food purveyor has brought the edible cookie dough trend to the Vancouver area. Angie Quaale of Well Seasoned in Langley has perfected her ready-to-eat cookie dough recipes and is selling them online and in her shop by the container.
Made without raw egg or any unpasteurized ingredients, these cute containers of ready-to-eat cookie dough retail for $6.99 each and come in four flavours:
- Sugar, Sugar – a sweet sugar cookie dough loaded with colorful sprinkles
- Cranberry Chocolate Chip
- Classic Chocolate Chip
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup – made with Well Seasoned’s homemade peanut butter cups
And there’s no pressure to eat it all in one sitting for fear it will go funny. You can keep it at room temperature for about 10 days, and in the fridge for six weeks. You can also freeze it for about a year, but make sure you save about 20-30 minutes to thaw it to room temp–skip the microwave.
Oh, and PS, no, you can’t bake this into cookies.
The flavours are really true to their name, and taste exactly like you’d imagine the dough for each one of the flavours should. And just like that other unsafe cookie dough you may already love to risk a taste of, these cookie doughs are pretty addictive.
You can grab some for yourself at the Well Seasoned gourmet food store, or order online for delivery anywhere in Canada.
