Here’s some great news for raw cookie dough-loving parents everywhere: you can stop worrying about the risks of salmonella and start rejoicing. Nestled in downtown Naperville is the only known establishment that specializes in a safe-to-eat version of this treat.
Cookie Dough Creations has created eight different mouth-watering flavors (including chocolate chip, fudge brownie and cake batter) of egg-free cookie dough. Order in your choice of three eat-right-now sizes or savor your pick longer with a pint to go.
Not a cookie dough fan? No problem. Cookie Dough Creations serves up freshly baked cookies as well as ice cream, cheesecake, brownies and other frozen goodies. Hard-core dessert fans can enjoy a Cookie Dough Sundae, which is a bowl of ice cream topped with cookie dough.
Cookie Dough Creations started in 1994 when Jim Bewersdorf left the corporate world and started making cookie dough pies out of his home. His gourmet dessert creations became the talk of the town and were sold in more than 100 local restaurants before he opened a retail location on the Naperville Riverwalk in 1995.
Cookie Dough Creations is open 10 a.m. Monday-Friday and at noon Saturday-Sunday and closes at 9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and at 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Street parking is limited, but it’s a pleasant walk from nearby lots and garages.
