When is the last time you’ve opened the tube of Tollhouse cookie dough and eaten raw chocolate chip cookies for dinner?

Your last break up?

Watching a movie?

Something is so comforting about chocolate chip dough. It’s reminiscent of childhood, being around busy mothers baking in the kitchen. It’s the ultimate American reward: “Be good and you’ll get a chocolate chip cookie,” and eating the raw dough is just scandalous! But oh-so delicious.

    Those look yummy! My fiance and I have been known to eat chocolate chip cookie dough raw! You have to be careful though because of the eggs that you don’t eat too much! 🙂

    mmm – love these kinds of goodies 🙂 and i love how you do up all of your recipes, especially the nutritional benefit portion.
    (and, no, i see now that i totally spaced on the nuts thing in your bar recipe. it’s in the ingred list, but doesn’t really say to shake them with the oats so i must have gotten frantic and skimmed the ingreds part too fast. whoops :P)
