The day everyone has been waiting for has finally come: edible cookie dough is now available for consumption. The Cookie Dough Café is a brand of raw cookie dough that only contains ingredients that are safe to consume. The raw egg present in almost all cookie dough recipes has prevented many from enjoying the treat society has grown to love. However, The Cookie Dough Café has capitalized on this desire and is now manufacturing egg-free edible raw dough that is currently being sold in select grocery stores.

The edible dough is not suitable for baking because it does not contain the necessary ingredients for the dough to rise. The dough is solely meant to be enjoyed raw, and it contains no preservatives. The ingredients used to make the cookie dough are all natural, and the finished product is immediately frozen to maintain freshness. This treat is also trans-fat and hydrogenated oil-free. In order to indulge in this delicacy, it must be stored in the refrigerator and only lasts 12 weeks. However, if frozen, the dough can last up to one year from the purchase date.

The Cookie Dough Café is an exclusively women-owned company and has been certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council. Flavors include chocolate chip, “Monster,” – which includes peanut butter, chocolate chips and M&M’s – Cookies and Cream and “Naked Dough,” which contains no additional additives other than the raw dough. The cookie dough can be found in local Gelson’s or Bristol Farms as well as online by the pint and cup.
