Although food experts have been warning us not to eat raw cookie dough for several decades now, diners in NYC will now be able to safely eat as much cookie dough as they please. A recent online article that I read today shines the spotlight on a new shop and eatery located in the Greenwich Village section of NYC that actually specializes in raw cookie dough.
The cookie dough shop is playfully named DO (pronounced dough), and is slated to officially open for business this week. The shop is utilizing heat-treated flour and a pasteurized egg product, in order to produce raw cookie doughs that are safe to eat.
Situated on La Guardia Place near 3rd Street, DO is a cute and clean establishment that seats 15 people. You can go in and order scoops of cookie dough in different-colored waffle cones or in cups, and enjoy a cup of their high quality coffee. In case your taste buds prefer a more traditional treat, an assortment of fully baked cookies are usually on hand at this unique food establishment.
You can create your own sundae, with your choice of ice cream flavor, baked cookie, and cookie dough flavor. DO offers a luscious cookie dough ice cream pie that is anchored by a chocolate chip cookie crust, and is topped with cookie dough.
If you’re a fan of cupcakes, the cupcake-shaped baked cookie dough treats are a must-try item. Filled with a choice of Nutella or sprinkles, these sweet gems are like no cupcake you’ve seen before.
The small, thick ice cream SanDOwiches served at DO feature a sturdy rectangle of cookie-dough ice cream encased by flattened pieces of raw chocolate-chip cookie dough. Frosty, delicious milkshakes are served at DO, and lots of tasty toppings are available.
New York is opening a new restaurant that will serve cookie dough that is safe to eat raw. DO (pronounced dough) is set to open in about a week. The eatery serves as great news for people who have been scared away from eating cookie dough due to the FDA warning that the dough is unsafe to consume due to raw flour and eggs.
Kristen Tomlan is the founder of DO and found a way to ensure that the cookie dough is harmless, since the dough contains heat-treated flour and pasteurized egg product. Tomlan also launched an online company that offers dough in several different forms, including cookie dough that has been scooped into cones and cups like ice cream. The dough has also been flatted and frozen to resemble a cooked dessert that can be made into an ice cream sandwiches. Tomlan also offers half-baked brownies or mixed into Blue Marble ice cream for tasty milkshakes and sundaes.
DO will open in Greenwich Village and will offer 15 menu options for customers. Toby’s Estate coffee will also served at DO, and there will be lots of packaged flavors to choose from, including cake batter, confetti and chocolate chip. The cookie dough is also packaged into pint-sized cartons to resemble ice cream, and can easily be scooped out for customers to enjoy. There’s even a cookie dough cupcake stuffed with Nutella and topped with buttercream frosting that is also made from cookie dough.
The address for DO is 550 La Guardia Place near 3rd Street.
