Stop eating the raw cookie dough! You’ll get worms! How many times did I hear that growing up? How many times have I heard myself screaming those exact words at my daughters? Do you know anyone that actually got worms? …….Me neither! Why is raw cookie dough so damn good?!
Can you get worms from eating raw cookie dough?
No, not unless one of the ingredients in the cookie dough was already contaminated. The most common concern in eating raw cookie dough is the possibility of salmonella from the raw eggs in the unbaked dough, not worms.
PS – There are no raw eggs in the recipe!
