Kids and Cookie Dough

    Do you let your kids lick the cookie dough or cake batter for the sake of tradition or are you too concerned about salmonella?

      I let my daughter have a lick every once in awhile. I'm not *super* worried about it, I make sure my eggs are as fresh as possible and are stored at proper temperature. Guess there's always pasteurized eggs for those that are super worried smile

    I always let my kids lick, too. I wouldn't be too afraid of salmonella from eggs these days. I could be wrong in that.

    Of corse! I licked so many spoons and bowls in my days as a kid, and I never got sick. It is safe if you use good,fresh eggs.

    It's hard to not let them lick after they see me do it.  So yeah--I'm guilty.
