Midtown

Cookie dough cafe coming to Detroit

DETROIT (WJBK) - If you're the type who just can't resist the temptation of cookie dough, you're in for a sweet treat this weekend. 

A cafe selling safe-to-eat cookie dough is popping up in Midtown from November 9-11. The cookie dough is safe because it uses heat-treated flour and does not include raw eggs. 

Detroit Dough plans to feature five cookie doughs - chocolate chip, brownie, peanut butter, no chips, and sugar. 

You can try out their dough this weekend at their pop-up shop at Detroit Clothing Circle, which is located at 499 W. Alexandrine. The shop will be open on all days from noon to 7 p.m. Price: $5 for one scoop, $7 for two scoops and $9 for three scoops. 

Daniel Washington from Detroit Dough joined us on The Nine to tell us more about the dough and the shop. You can hear from him in the video player above. 

The team behind the concept has plans to open a shop in 2019 at Linwood and Ferry Park in Detroit's NW Goldberg neighborhood, which is where Daniel grew up. 

Daniel tells us once the official shop is open, it will have a whole mix-in bar with dozens of different items to mix in with the dough.

We tried Detroit Dough’s safe-to-eat cookie dough

If you’re like me, you may have spent more than a few times snacking on frozen cookie dough at home on the couch, despite FDA warnings that raw cookie dough is not safe to consume. Having repeatedly ignored those warnings, I was thrilled to find out that Detroit is getting its own cookie dough café in the NW Goldberg neighborhood.

Detroit Dough is run by local twentysomethings Autumn Kyles and siblings Daniel A. Washington, Theodore Washington III, and Victoria Washington. While they haven’t opened their location at Linwood and Ferry Park just yet, they are having an ongoing pop-up November 9 - 11 at Detroit Clothing Circle, located at 499 W. Alexandrine in Midtown. 

Though the shop boasts five flavors to choose from – brownie, sugar, chocolate chip, peanut butter, and plain dough with no chips – Chief Storyteller Aaron Foley and I visited the pop-up to try just two flavors: brownie and chocolate chip. Here’s what we had to say about the experience.

AF: I had the brownie flavor, and I could easily see this becoming a guilty pleasure. It’s rich and chocolately, and none of the base ingredients (like, for example, flour or egg) overpower the actual flavor. There’s a reason why this will taste better than the cookie dough I’ll try to make at home.

KC: This is classic chocolate chip cookie dough without the looming threat of salmonella. I could definitely eat this while watching The Crownon Netflix during the long weekend. 10/10, would eat again.
