Reading Time: 2 minutes

There comes a time in every betchs life when instead of actually breaking and baking the cookies from the refrigerated log, she just digs into the cookie dough with a spoonand you’re lying if you say you’ve never done this. I mean, this is literally the reason D exists and has a 3-hour line that wraps around the block.

In case your mom didn’t ruin your life tell you enough times in first grade, eating raw cookie dough isnt actually good for you, considering the cookie dough contains raw eggs which can give you salmonella. Which, in turn, can cause a legit case of the shits, vomiting, and other not cute symptoms. Is all that worth it for the few minutes of happiness you get while you eat an entire package of break-n-bake Tollhouse cookies? We think not.

If you must eat a package or bowl of cookie dough, make it yourself, sans salmonella or 3-hour line. We have the technology, if you can call it that. What a time to be alive.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, unsalted, softened
  • 2 tbsps whole milk
  • 2 tsps vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips or chocolate chunks

Time to get our shame-eating on. First, put on sweatpants, remove all makeup, and put hair in your 90s scruncie.

Next, preheat the oven to 350F. This next part is gonna sound weird, but trust us: take the flour and spread it out on a baking sheet. Bake it for 5 minutes. This will make the flour taste less, well, like baby powder and more like, um, slightly browned baking stuff.

Next, beat the flour in a large bowl with the sugar, butter, milk, vanilla, and salt. Once the mixture is combined, add in your chocolate chips or chunks. EAT WITH A SPOON. Try not to think about the life choices that have led you to this point.
