    Question about raw cookie dough

    "Don't eat the raw cookie dough!"
    I'm sure we have all heard our mothers and fathers say that at least once. But is it really that bad for you, let's say 3-4 spoonfuls? I just had about 4 while baking cookies, and yes, it had raw egg in it, but I can't ever help it!

    Re: Question about raw cookie dough

    Someone asked Dr. Knowledge this question a while ago. His response was that it's a gamble because of the samonella in the eggs. Dr K said that there is more samonella in eggs nowadays then there were back in the dark ages when I was a kid.

    I bake all the time and let my kids lick the bowl. Yes, it's a gamble but life has to be fun. For me, I prefer freshly baked cookies over cookie dough any day. Warm cookies and milk. yum!
