Remember when your parents used to yell at you for eating the raw cookie dough out of the bowl when you were little? Fear no more...edible cookie dough is here, and it’s a phenomenon. Cookie Dō—which opened a flagship store in Soho last year after being a mail-only business for two years—is a must-visit spot in NYC. The dough is made with pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour, so it’s safe to eat raw and can also be used to bake cookies!
People wait in line for hours to get a scoop of their unique flavors of cookie dough ($4 for a single scoop). Some of their most popular flavors include oatmeal M&M (my all-time fave), cake batter, “salty & sweet” (sugar cookie + salted caramel + dark chocolate chips + sea salt) and “brookie dough” (signature chocolate chip and brownie batter swirled together!). They also have gluten free and vegan options of cookie dough, which include the signature chocolate chip flavor, sugar cookie, peanut butter snickerdoodle, and “heavenly” (sugar cookie + nutella + chocolate chips + caramel bits + sea salt!). The store makes 1,200 pounds of cookie dough a day, so head over and splurge away!
At their Soho flagship, they even mix cookie dough into sundaes, milkshakes, or sandwich it between two cookies! They also sell treats made out of the cookie dough such as cookie dough fudge, cookie dough ice cream pie, and a cookie bomb, which is a stuffed cookie cup topped with cookie dough buttercream frosting.
Unable to get to the store? No worries! Cookie Dō ships pints of cookie dough worldwide that can be eaten right out of the container. Another plus: they can last for 30 days in your freezer! Whichever way you end up getting your cookie dough, I guarantee you that it will be dōlicious.
Go to www.cookiedo.com to order your cookie dough (they ship nationwide) or visit their flagship store at 550 Laguardia Place in Soho. They also were just added to Caviar so you can get Dō delivered to your door in Manhattan immediately!
