Is it even possible to bake cookies without eating the dough?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging people to "say no to raw dough" this holiday season. The uncooked eggs and flour in raw cookie dough can contain bacteria like E.coli and Salmonella, but that doesn't mean that you have to miss out on the best part of the baking experience.

Show Me The Yummy has an awesome alternative to raw cookie dough. This eggless, flour-free, and CDC approved recipe is a great way to get your dough fix without worrying about any unpleasant side-effects.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Butter
  • Granulated sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Milk
  • Homemade oat flour (you can make this by pulsing oatmeal in a food processor)
  • Salt
  • Chocolate chips

Mix it all together and voila! A holiday (or anytime) friendly substitute for your favorite dough.

You can check out even more details on this no-dough alternative on the Show Me The Yummy website.
