Edible Raw Cookie Dough: it’s now OK to lick the bowl

What is edible raw cookie dough?  

This is not the same kind of dough you used to lick out of your parents’ mixing bowl when you were a kid.  In other words, “this ain’t yo mama’s cookie dough.”  Instead, it is a safe-to-eat version specifically made to be eaten raw while avoiding the dangers of raw eggs and flour.  Some places use pasteurized eggs, while others eliminate eggs and dairy completely making them vegan.

Some places even serve cookie dough sandwiches: raw batter sandwiched between two baked cookies…forming a cookie inception if you will.

Where can I get it?  

Safe-to-eat raw cookie dough has been around for decades, but has only recently found widespread popularity.  You can find this 100% edible raw dessert at these places.
