Cookie dough lovers can now eat all the raw cookie dough they want without the risk of salmonella. A new edible cookie dough shop called “aDoughable Cookies” opened last Wednesday inside the Haywood Mall.
There are 6 different flavors, including chocolate chip, strawberry cheesecake and cookies and cream. Raw cookie dough shops are a growing trend in places like New York City, which is where Upstate owners Theren Barlet and Aubrey Aiken say they got the idea.
The trick to keeping that cookie dough taste authentic but safe, they say, is using two key ingredients. “In our recipes, we use heat treated flour and pasteurized eggs so all the bacteria is killed off. What a lot of people don’t know is in the flour, there’s also a chance of getting e.coli, so we heat treat our own flours so all the bacteria is killed off,” they explained.
Barlet and Aiken say their cookie dough can be stored for 3 days in the refrigerator or up to 6 months in the freezer. Customers can also bake the cookie dough. Each container makes about 8 small cookies and costs 5 dollars and 50 cents each.
Adoughable cookies is in the Haywood Mall in Greenville in front of Build A Bear. It’s open 7 days a week during normal mall hours. For more information, visit the shop’s Facebook page.
