Cookie Dough Preservatives?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys! I'm new here. Simple question. If I want to refrigerate cookie dough, not freeze it, do you know of any preservatives I could add to it to extend shelf life? Or maybe if there's even an all-natural solution? And if you have a suggestion, where would I find this, and how do I know how much to put in?

 

Thanks so much!!

How long are you wanting to store it? I've kept cookie dough for up to 3 weeks in the fridge with no special prep. Just make sure it's well sealed

Well I've read that refrigerating dough by itself is good for anywhere from 1 day to what you said, 3 weeks. I don't know which answer to trust! Maybe I can try using pasteurized eggs?

Up to you....my eggs don't even get washed when I gather let alone pasteurized. I've found that most foods will last much longer than the "experts" say. If in doubt wrap in saran and freeze
