Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls Recipe

I love eating raw cooking dough, maybe even more than baked cookies! Of course, there's always the nagging issue of eating the raw eggs in it. Luckily we can use sous vide to fully pasteurize the eggs, rendering them completely safe to eat. The white will solidify some, but once you mix up the dough it will blend in perfectly.

I've provided a cookie dough recipe for you to follow, but if you have a favorite of your own feel free to use that instead. And if you don't have a sous vide machine you can always just omit the eggs. The final dough won't be as flavorful but it should still be great!
