is your dough really safe to eat unbaked?

You heard us right! Finally, a safe-to-eat cookie dough that you don’t have to pretend you are going to bake! All ingredients in each of our delicious, homemade recipes are safe to consume just as they are – unbaked. We give you peace of mind, allowing you to eat a piece of cookie dough heaven how you like it best.

but doesn’t cookie dough contain eggs?

For products that typically contain eggs, we use a pasteurized egg product. The heat process kills any potentially harmful bacteria. Yay! You can enjoy all our cookie dough products unbaked.

what about the flour you use? is it raw?

We're glad you asked! We use a heat-treated, ready-to-eat flour. At last, worry-free treats you can dig right into! YAY! 

can I travel with my cookie dough?

our safe-to-eat cookie dough should be stored in the fridge or freezer. If traveling, we recommend freezing it ahead of time and sticking it in a cooler or freezer bag when in transit. You can purchase ice packs and insulated bags at our scoop shop. If flying, we recommend freezing ahead of time and checking your cookie dough with your checked luggage, beneath the plane, where it is colder and is not subject to TSA screening. We are unable to reimburse you for cookie dough that has been taken by TSA.

how should I store my cookie dough? how long will it last?

our cookie dough must be stored in the refrigerator or freezer because it contains perishable ingredients without any additives or preservatives. If refrigerated, our dough lasts up to three weeks – good luck keeping it around that long! If frozen, it should be consumed within three months. 

what is the best way to keep baked cookies?

Baked cookies are best stored in an airtight container and should stay chewy and delicious for up to two weeks. They will last up to three months if frozen and will be just as tasty when you thaw them to serve!

how many cookies does one cookie dough container bake?

If you have somehow resisted the urge to eat the whole unbaked tub and want to bake your cookie dough instead, do so in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until your desired doneness is achieved. Our 8oz container will bake about 6-8 cookies.

can we buy your cookies already baked? what about cookie cakes?

YES! We sell baked cookies and custom cookie dough cakes. You can even build your own flavor if you want! We promise they will be a fan favorite at any event as well as be the perfect gift! Our 8x8 cakes feed about 9 people. Order online for pick-up or contact for more information.
