Peanut Butter Cookie Dough

Why does cookie dough always refer to chocolate chip cookie dough?  For that matter, why does 90% of cookie dough ice cream use a vanilla ice cream base?  In the name of variety and a flavor combination that’s hard to go wrong with, I present a recipe for peanut butter cookie dough that’s safe to eat raw (no eggs!). You can eat peanut butter cookie dough just as you would ice cream – with sprinkles and topping galore.

Or, you can serve peanut butter cookie dough with ice cream (I suggest chocolate ice cream!).

When making peanut butter cookie dough, you needn’t worry about ingredient order, mixing speeds, temperature, or times.  You aren’t going to bake the cookie dough, so you can say, “Nanny nanny poo poo,” to the laws of baking chemistry – just mix and eat!

UPDATE: The FDA now warns that it’s not just raw eggs that we need to worry about, but also raw flour. I’ve updated the recipe to include heating the flour in the microwave to kill any e. coli present. This is not a 100% proven method. Consume at your own risk – I do!

Recipe Notes

Remember: this is a recipe for raw cookie dough. If you bake the peanut butter cookie dough, it won't turn into perfect peanut butter cookies; it does not contain baking powder, baking soda, or eggs. The peanut butter cookie dough is meant to be eaten straight from the bowl - just like you would anyway, but without the guilt.

Of course, calorie count cannot include what you decide to mix in.
