Had enough turkey and pecan pie? For something very different and delightfully addictive, drop by Cookie Dough Magic in Avondale, a store that sells… you’ve got it – cookie dough.

Bham Now content producer Jacob Blankenship took some photos of Cookie Dough Magic’s opening, the day after Thanksgiving.

Check out the various  types of  cookie dough offerings, including Cookie Dough Magic “Fancy’s Peanut Butter” named after Avondale’s famous elephant Miss Fancy (read all about her – HERE).

How is the cookie dough made?

From  a story about Cookie Dough Magic that was produced by Bham Now this past summer, we asked the question… How do they make sure the cookie dough is safe for consumption?

Here was the answer.

“Cookie Dough Magic’s cookie dough is made with pasteurized eggs and heat treated flour. The heating process removes all of the harmful bacteria from the flour and the eggs, therefore leaving you with safe to eat raw cookie dough.”

Atmosphere & Price

Much like stopping for ice cream at the local creamery, Cookie Dough Magic will be a destination stop for folks looking for something a little different after dining out at one of Avondale’s many popular restaurants.

And as you can see the price is right too.
