For many years, I’ve been buying that ubiquitous Tollhouse log of chocolate chip cookie dough, and then simultaneously eating half of it. A few weeks ago I did it again, and was about to promptly finish it off when my boyfriend exclaimed, ‘Aren’t you going to bake cookies with that??’. Placating his logical desire, I finished baking what was left of the cookie dough. But now, after recently discovering my new favorite product, Eat Pastry, I can have my holiday cookies, and eat them raw too. Eat Pastry is a line of vegan baking products and eggless cookie dough that you can actually eat before baking without the guilt! (But maybe not without the meddling boyfriend wondering where his cookies are…)
Eat Pastry comes in a variety of flavors, with three, like the chocolate chip featured above also being gluten-free. I also love how easy it is to just scoop and bake straight from carton to oven!
After I chowed down on more cookie dough then I care to admit, I was told to… Bake the damn cookies! I had gone slightly overboard, and there wasn’t as much dough as I had thought. To counter my mistake, I made 12 mini holiday cookies!
Although this is certainly more expensive then the typical cookie dough you can buy at the grocery ($6 a pop), I have to say, it’s worth the extra $3 for some of the small details. You can feel good knowing you ate baked goods that were a little bit healthier then alternative options. And, if you have to bake holiday cookies for the party, classroom, or otherwise, this is the way to go. Now, get rollin in the dough!
