If lately you’ve been feeling like you need a really good piece of news, it’s finally here, and it’s definitely going to put a smile on your face.
We recently caught wind that Pillsbury Canada has launched a new Safe to Eat Raw Cookie Dough. If the encouraging news immediately transports you back to your childhood (or causes you to sigh with relief that you’ll no longer have to say no to your kids while baking), you’re not alone.
Pillsbury intentionally changed up its longstanding manufacturing process for just this reason. While you can still count on the same classic baked cookie flavour, you and your family can now enjoy it before and after baking.
If you want to bake it, that is. That’s right, with the advent of Safe to Eat Raw Cookie Dough comes a plethora of other ways to enjoy the new dessert staple.
Providing families with quick and easy baking recipes is nothing new in Pillsbury’s books, but transitioning their entire line of refrigerated cookie doughs to be safe to eat raw by the end of 2020 certainly is.
The key is using the highest-quality ingredients, including heat-treated flour and pasteurized eggs, to make the dough safe to eat at any stage of the baking process.
These adjustments, while small, mean snack time just got a little more fun in households across the country.
You can relinquish your inner kid — and make up for all those times your mom told you not to — by keeping it raw and adding your favourite toppings to the mix. Or, say “yes” to sneaking a bite here and there while baking in the kitchen with your kids — who, by the way, will definitely think you’re the coolest parent ever.
Try out new recipes, like the Cookie Dough Truffles featured above, for a new take on a classic. Let’s face it, the only thing better than raw cookie dough is cookie dough covered in chocolate.
You can officially find Pillsbury Canada’s Safe to Eat Raw Cookie Dough in the refrigerated section of your local grocer. Note, be sure to check for the “saw to eat raw” badge before digging in.
