Eating cookie dough is either something people do naturally, or it’s something that is appalling in their mind.

I know this because I was chatting with the check out lady at the grocery store this week and learned that eating raw cookie dough is not cool in some people’s minds.

I have heard these arguments before about raw eggs, salmonella. I get it. I hear ya. But it doesn’t stop me. And it never occurred to me to tell my children “no” either. Usually the reason I tell them no is because it’s right before dinner or some other strange time.

But, in line at the checkout with my conveyor belt full of chocolate chips the cashier proceeded to tell me about her son who got violently ill from raw cookie dough. So ill that he was in the hospital for weeks. WEEKS.

Yikes.

I had planned on making my usual batch of chocolate chip cookies, eating a few handfuls of cookie dough, then watching TV. Instead I went to my collection of recipes (you know, the stack of printouts of recipes you WANT to make). I found one for Cookie Dough Bars from a blogger named Gingerbread Bagels (she no longer blogs, but I have about a dozen of her recipes printed)!

I decided to give these cookie dough bars a peanut butter twist. I mean, seriously, peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie dough. You all seem to LOVE that combo!

Once I made these and cut them into bites, I realized my good friend Alyssa made them for her blog! I popped over there and saw that her recipe traces back to Gingerbread Bagels too. Great minds think alike!

And yes, these cookie dough bars are SAFE to eat. No raw eggs in these bad boys! The only danger is eating too many!!

    Just now seeing this DELISH recipe, I’m always a day late & a dollar short…SIGH I’m crackin’ up big time over your statement “Store in a covered container for up to a week. ” OH MY GOSH these little bites of heaven won’t last a DAY in my home. Laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes.

    Thanks for both the recipe and the laugh. CHEERS, CC

    Any issues with separation with the two layers?  I have made some other 2 layer cookie dough recipes and the two layers wanted to separate so presentation not ideal and I do a monthly bake sale at the church so they must look good.  Thanks for your reply/response!
