Test Kitchen Overview: I am old enough to remember a time when there was no such thing as a “cookie dough” flavor. No cookie dough ice cream, no cookie dough truffles or milk shakes. Now this flavor and concept is everywhere, from the freezer aisle to the candy store and beyond. In fact, while vanilla ice cream is still the #1 seller in the US, cookie dough is #2 according to some sources, upsetting chocolate’s standing that it had held for decades. There is something about the buttery, sugary deliciousness that can be quite addicting.
So, what’s the problem with eating your own homemade cookie dough raw? It is considered unsafe largely due to the heightened risk of raw food borne illness most commonly associated with raw eggs – such as salmonella. And after there were reports of consumers getting sick from consuming commercially prepared cookie dough (the kind that you are supposed to bake), Edoughble “dough-founders” Rana and John decided they would change that and make the world a better, safer and tastier place with the invention of their safe-to-eat raw, cookie dough recipes.The dough arrived without a cold-pack, which concerned us as it is summer and the dough looked extremely soft. We inquired with the
PR agency (who consulted Edoughble) and they assured us that it was okay to eat. In fact, on the Edoughble website they state:
“Importantly, while freezing the dough will extend the shelf life for up to 3 months, the dough tastes best stored in the fridge up to 6 weeks. The dough also tastes great at room temp for 2 weeks for a creamy and frosting-like consistency.”
Ours was a frosting-like consistency upon arrival. We tasted it soft, right away, and then also refrigerated it and tasted it slightly chilled. Indeed, eating Edoughble is the best of both worlds. If you are a raw cookie dough aficionado, you can get your fix and know you are safe in doing so. We liked it best slightly softened – not warm and frosting-like, but not chilled and too firm. We liked the take on the classic chocolate chip dough the best, which the company calls Chocolate Chip Off The Ol’ Block.
Pros: We noticed two things immediately in the ingredient list: the use of cake flour and the inclusion of applesauce. The cake flour gives the dough a very smooth mouth feel; great choice. The applesauce is not perceptible by flavor or texture. It provides body, while being a safe room-temperature ingredient. Love the high-quality Callebaut chocolate in the Chocolate Chip Off The Ol’ Block and the punch of cinnamon and number of raisins in the Cravin’ Oatmeal Raisin. Also, the use of vanilla bean paste makes these doughs particularly flavorful.
We liked the idea of being able to choose our favorite ice cream and fold in bits of Edoughble for a custom creation.
They have many flavors from which to choose: Strawberry Jammin’ Birthday Bash, S’More Please, Cravin’ Oatmeal Raisin, Nuts for Chocolate, Cookies N’ Dream, Nutty Monkey (which is vegan and gluten-free), Chocolate Chip Off The Ol’ Block, Stuck on You PB&J and Sweet as Lemon Pie.
Cons: Truth is we have eaten raw cookie dough for years and have never gotten sick. But that doesn’t mean we were doing the “right” thing, nor would we serve homemade raw dough to friends or guests. We just hadn’t thought of paying for raw dough before.
Suggested Use: The company explanation says it perfectly:
“How to best enjoy Edoughble?
If you’re anything like us, you’re an “all of the below” person.
- The Purist: You dig right into the dough with spoon, finger, chopsticks, or whatever else gets dough to mouth ASAP.
- The Topper: You perfect the perfect bite of ice cream and cookie dough for the ultimate experience in indulgence.
- The Mixer: You add cookie dough to any and everything… spread between 2 cookies, sprinkled in brownie batter, whipped into a doughy dessert dip, blended in milkshakes (yeah I said cookie dough milkshake!).”
