With Thanksgiving coming up this week and the holidays around the corner you’re probably going to be doing a lot of baking. If you have kids you know they always want to snag that cookie dough. But is it safe?
The answer is no. Everyone thinks it’s from the raw eggs, which it is. But also the raw flour can make it very dangerous too. It can possibly come into contact with bacteria when it’s out in the field causing illness.
A lot of stores now sell the ready to bake or edible cookie dough. Stick with that. When it comes to baking cookies from scratch, as tempting as it can be, try not to eat the raw stuff.
