Edible Cookie Dough

Cookie dough is an un-cooked blend of cookie ingredients. Cookie dough is normally intended to be baked into individual cookies before eating, however edible cookie dough is made to be eaten as is, and usually is made without eggs to make it safer for human consumption.

Cookie dough is derived from the creation of cookies that dates back as far as 7th century Persia, where they were used as test cakes. Persia was one of the first countries to use sugar and soon became known for luxurious cakes and pastries. The early cookie was first labelled as a test cake before it was referred to as a "cookie" because the Persians would bake a small amount of cake batter in the oven to test the oven temperature, and it would come out looking like a mini cake. Cookies became established in Europe sometime between the 17th and 18th century, as baking gained popularity. At that time the word "cookie" was first used. The term comes from the Dutch language where Koekje means "small or little cake." [Wikipedia]
