Pillsbury’s Edible Cookie Dough in a Tub Feels Too Good To Be True
By Cooking Panda
For a lot of us, the quarantine mandates and stay-at-home orders of the last few months have turned the occasional Netflix binge into a daily routine. If you’re looking to up your snack game while you browse for a new TV show, you’re in luck! Pillsbury is now offering its edible cookie dough in a tub, for long-term sweet tooth satisfaction.
Pillsbury has been selling tubs of cookie dough for a while now, but the company came out with its new “Eat or Bake” formula. Although it hasn’t stopped most of us before, eating raw cookie dough by the spoonful is ill-advised – since the raw batter contains eggs and flour, eating it before cooking it can pose some major health risks. Fortunately, Pillsbury came up with an easy solution and started making its dough with heat-treated flour and pasteurized eggs, so you can bake cookies or eat the dough guilt-free (or at least, guilt-free about the raw cookie dough part).
The edible tubs of Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough are available on shelves now, and have over 70 servings of cookies in them. If the thought of eating through an entire tub of raw dough makes you feel a little queasy, no worries. The cookies are still ready to bake and can be whipped together in a few minutes with minimal clean up. And, while you’re baking them, you can skim a spoonful off the top of the dough too.
