Who among us does not recall "licking the beaters" when Mom (in her quaint apron) had been baking?
Who has never run a finger inside a bowl used for making, say, muffins, and licked off the uncooked dough residue?
We know you're out there!
Now--- acknowledgment of this happy and innocent indulgence many years ago led to the creation of ice creams containing, supposedly, "cookie dough." As in Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream.
(In the course of my intense research for this post I came across this hilarious, off-the-wall rant from 2004 on "How Much (C.Dough) Is In Cookie Dough Ice Cream?")
Across this great nation, people who stand in front of their fridges inhaling uncooked c. dough straight from the packaging of Nestle's Toll House Cookie Dough are getting freakishly ill and tummy achy from E.coli bacteria contained therein. 25 have been hospitalized.
Please do not do this, even with another brand of c.dough. This is a revolting and no longer hidden habit of yours, and we regret that you have become really, really ill from pursuing it.
You might look into purchasing and consuming library paste, if it still exists. Oddball kids at school used to eat it, back in the day.
