As Veggie Savvy writes, “Raw Cookie Dough, what have you done to me? OMG, I’m officially obsessed! Who would have thought that cookie dough could actually be good for you? Well this recipe is nutritionally dense and protein packed. Protein shakes? Ha! Nope. I’ll have chocolate chip cookie dough thank you.”
And now a little about the history of desserts. Sweets were fed to the gods in ancient Mesopotamia and ancient India. Dried fruit and honey were probably the first sweeteners used in most of the world, but the transporting of sugarcane around the world was vital to the development of dessert.
Europeans began to manufacture sugar in the Middle Ages, and more sweet desserts became available. Even then sugar was so expensive usually only the wealthy could indulge on special occasions. The first apple pie recipe was published in 1381. The earliest documentation of the term “cupcake” was in “Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats” in 1828.
The Industrial Revolution in Europe and later America caused desserts (and food in general) to be mass-produced, processed, preserved, canned, and packaged. Frozen foods, including desserts, became very popular starting in the 1920s when freezing emerged.
I bet in the 1920’s they didn’t have yummy healthy vegan cookie dough. Aren’t we lucky?
