Do you love cookie dough but feel a little funny eating it because of the eggs in it? Yes, how long have we heard don’t eat raw eggs it will make you sick? For as long as I can remember it seems, I don’t worry about it personally at home when I’m the cook . But I really don’t like eating store bought cookie dough ice cream and such because of that little voice in my head reminding me I could get sick. Well, thanks to my blue eyed friends over at Blue Eyed Baker’s they posted a recipe for cookie dough truffles that doesn’t have eggs in it. Yay! We can all rest assured no bacteria and pop this cookie dough in without a second thought to feeling sick, unless you eat too many truffles that is. I thought I would honor St. Patricks Day by dipping my cookie dough truffles into some green melting candy, yum! Now I think I will have to make some more dough and try out cookie dough truffle ice-cream mmm…doesn’t that sound delish. Happy St. Patrick’s Day may you find your pot o’ gold!
