It’s SO Not Fair!

Since I’m the only body in this house that actually eats chocolate chip cookies, I learned long ago that it’s actually better for me to buy the pre-made dough, than to make them from scratch. Why? Because I eat as many as I make.  I have no self-control. I can, however, pull out a package of break and bake cookie dough and only cook up three or four cookies.  It works for me.

Or it did.

Until today.

I craved chocolate chip cookies all day long. Finally I pre-heated the oven, pulled out a package, and broke off a few (or eight, depending on your definition of few). Once they finished cooking, I returned to my computer with a tall, cool glass of milk and a plate of hot, gooey, chocolate chip cookies.

These are the actual cookies in question

The very first post to pull up in my reader – cookie in hand, as of yet unbitten – was a warning that Nestle Toll House Cookie Dough has been recalled because of E. coli. Outbreaks all across the country. Granted most of the people infected had eaten the cookie dough raw, and I, for once, had not. Still the CDC recommends that you not eat the cookie dough cooked either.

So heads up. Be careful.

Meanwhile, my entire house smells like cookies.
