You wouldn't choose to eat a raw potato over a sizzling, cooked french fry. Nor would you want to snack on a marinated chicken breast before it fully bakes. But you so would joyously indulge in cookie dough, much before you shape it into balls to rise in the oven.

This is just one of the many reasons cookie dough is so spectacular. Its taste pre-oven is worthy of replicating in cakes, ice cream and beyond. (And in ways that don't pose the risk for raw egg-induced Salmonella.)

So for the sake of safety and for the sake of delight, here are 31 recipes that'll make any cookie dough lover swoon.
