I recently read this NY Times article . It warns that eating raw cookie dough is super crazy dangerous and advises you to avoid the temptation to lick fingers, bowl or spatula AT ALL POSSIBLE COSTS. It is a sickness that threatens to wipe out an entire population of bakers- both professional and amateur- AND their offspring too. 80 people were made sick by eating it last year!!! 80! This is an alarming number, people! That means that salmonella poisoning by cookie dough happens to approximately one in every million persons who indulge in the irressitable sticky, gooey, buttery, raw- eggy awesomeness. Well, we live on the edge here at Chez B. We’re risk takers! We’re crazy!! E coli be damned!! We love raw cookie dough!
