The second best thing about baking cookies is eating them straight from the oven. What's actually the best? Skipping the baking sheet and eating the dough raw, of course. However, as an adult, I'm slightly less inclined to go for the raw dough. As much as I love to live life on the edge, food poisoning is awful. The good news is that eggs don’t really do anything for the dough until you bake it. And since I won’t be turning the oven back on until October, I omitted the eggs and created a cookie dough meant to be spooned directly into my mouth, which saves the stomachache. Unless you eat it all in one sitting. Don't do that.
