Hi, I’m Ariki. I’m a cookie crunching, bowl licking, taste testing, (un)baker based in the mighty Waikato. From my kitchen in Hamilton, I make a range of unbaked products that can be eaten raw – or baked at home. You don’t have to be a pro-baker to bake, just chuck the dough in the oven for a delicious snack that would even rival grandma’s baking.
From my wicked little kitchen, I make two products; Cookie Dough, and Crumble Toppings.
Our products are 100% safe to eat raw
We use heat-treated flour and pasteurised free-range eggs. This means that our products are safe to eat raw. When you make cookies at home, you would likely use non-heat-treated products which could contain salmonella and e.coli – which may pose a risk if ingested without cooking. Heat treating kills off the nasty pathogens; – which means that there is no risk of sickness when consuming raw dough.
So, if one of your highlights while baking is licking the bowl – then, you need to try our raw cookie dough! If you prefer a warm cookie - then all you need to do is take them straight from the freezer and bake.
