Eating cookie dough is one of our guilty pleasures. Whenever we bake, we have to double the batch in order to end up with enough dough to produce two dozen cookies.
A couple of years ago, when ready-to-eat jars of cookie dough began to dot the marketplace, we tried every brand we came across. Most were made without butter, and were not up to snuff for our butter-loving palate.
But recently, we discovered another brand, Baked Cookies & Dough: the winner and champion.
Baked is a cookie shop in West Chester, Pennsylvania that sells baked cookies, warm from the oven, or ready-to-eat raw cookie dough.
The edible cookie dough is made without eggs, and uses heat-treated flour so there is zero risk of harmful bacteria in the raw dough.
The dough is all-natural: no hydrogenated oils (or any oils), no HFCS, no preservatives. Flavors include:
First, it’s sold by the scoop: one, two or three of them (we can’t imagine eating more than one at a time).
The shop also sells baked cookie sandwiches with raw dough in the center; s’mores with cookie dough; sundaes with dessert sauce, candy toppings, whipped cream and a baked cookie; and cones with cookie dough (photo #1).
If this sounds like your dream, franchises are available.
By the way, don’t try to bake the dough into cookies. It has no eggs or leavening agents (baking powder, baking soda), so you won’t get what you hope for.
Why bake it when you can eat it with a spoon!
By the way, a few heaping spoonfuls is more than enough to eat at once. While the folks in West Chester may order a double or triple scoop, we—a mega sweets eater—can’t imagine how they get through more than one.
The website is a bit hard to navigate, so here’s the link to online purchases.
The telephone is 610.981.1457, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A six-pack is $ 12.50 per 12-ounce jar, plus free shipping. You might as well order the six-or eight-pack, because compared to a smaller order which charges shipping shipping, you’ll come out ahead.
Keep some jars in the freezer for emergencies.
