I was never allowed to eat cookie dough growing up.
my mom said the raw eggs were bad for us.
and then my best friend jenn finally convinced me that i wouldn't die if i ate it.

and she got e.coli.
(she still doesn't know where she got it from. but i'm going to say it was the cookie dough.)

sometimes, I make cookies, cakes, brownies, pancakes, etc. just so I can eat the dough/batter. So far, I've never gotten ecoli. But now that I've said that? I probably will.

Man I love cookie dough! I hope I never get e.coli! :) That would definitely turn me off cookie dough.

Haha, thats a funny story. I was the opposite.My mom always told me I could eat it, and I was too scared:) Now I LOVE it, sometimes more than the cookies.

I've never been a fan of anything uncooked that has raw eggs in it. Just the thought of eating a raw egg puts my stomach muscles in an upchuck mode. Sorry! M.

I love cookie dough. In fact, its a horrible addiction. I read about the harmful effects it could have and try to listen to horror stories about e.coli but, I still can't break the habit. It is just too delicious.

I make funfetti cake batter so I can eat some. One time my friend and I ate so much we only had enough batter left for an 8x8 cake.

further more, you can put your raw egg fear behind you, you actually have to eat the equivalent of 7 raw effect eggs to get e.coli from an egg. it's much more common to get it from raw chicken (or a knife that cut raw chicken...)

Brandon said...

I eat raw cookie dough and my husband HATES it! :)

Amanda said...

Haha oh man that is kinda ironic. Whenever we make cookies at home i think we eat most the dough. still. :)

I always ate the cookie dough growing up.... but the older I get and more informed I become... the more paranoid I get about things like this. So maybe I will be like you mom with my kids? :)

I always LOVED eating cookie dough, never got sick. My mom would give us little bits every now and then. Why is the cookie so good before it's the cookie?! hahha

Jenn said...

Haha I am convinced that cookie dough wasn't the culprit. I don't think something so wonderful could cause something so awful. So, I will keep eating it :)

McKenna said...

Guilty. The best is white cake mix... I used to eat it by the spoonful. Although, I never got ecoli from it. Thank goodness.

I grew up eating cookie dough. My mom would make the dough to eat it... not to cook it. So delicious!

Jillian said...

Ha ha! I love cookie dough. My mom didn't but my dad was crazy for it. Guess I just tried it and decided from there.

I'm with your mom on that one. I used to make cookies and my family would eat half of it before it was baked. Gaakk!
E.COLI?!! That is hysterical!

Launi said...

Oh. My. Gosh. I did it again. I keep hitting buttons before I mean to and then I'm the Anonymous chick. sigh.
Sorry again. It's just me...the nerd.
