Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I have never ever eaten raw cookie dough.
Did you know that if you break a cookie into two halves all the calories fall out......

Can't eat just one... in fact, if they are in the house, they "call to me" until they are all gone!
To bearisgray - you don't know what you're missing. Try it just once. Praise to whomever (I think it was Ben & Jerry) invented cookie dough ice cream.
Spend 30 minutes on an exercise machine, or doing hard stuff in the yard. Then you've prepared yourself to curl up with a good book or movie for a couple of hours with fresh cookies, milk or other drink and know your metabolism is hitting those calories right out of your system. Not an ounce of guilt will be gained! Trust me!
I mixed and chilled the dough today, took a nap, then popped them into the oven. DH and I enjoyed several "hot from the oven". We did let most of them cool. Now I have pecan chocolate chip cookies, pecan shortbread cookies and snickerdoodle cookies in both the freezer for later and in the kitchen..... to be eaten "as needed". I have thyroid disease (newly diagnosed) and have been fighting the scales w/o success lately, so I decided to at least have something that tastes good to blame the extra pounds on for once. When you are focused on the cookies that you should not have, then they become an obsession that must be tamed. That is my story and I'm sticking to it!
Your logic is flawless. But.. no. heehee
I love, love all cookie dough. I know you aren't supposed to eat raw eggs but I have been doing it for years. I do ok with staying out of the cookies but can't help myself with the cookie dough. I have been trying to chew gum while I bake Christmas cookies to help me stay out of the dough. It helps because the mint taste in my mouth ruins the taste of the dough.
