    Did anyone else used to eat the cresent/biscuit dough raw?? Lolll

    I'd never heard or seen cookie dough or butter dough been eaten raw until I came to the US. Raw veggies, yes. Raw flour plus plus pre-baking, never.

    woo

    So much nostalgia here! These posts have reminded me of these:
    Vienna sausages, homemade Chex mix (planning to make this soon!), cinnamon toast, English muffin pizzas, soybean school burgers

    I also remember: Golden Grahams, grape nuts mixed into yogurt, Godfather’s pizza, hard butterscotch candies, hot chicken salad casserole, dump cake, and our family had this special breakfast thing where we would take hot biscuits and dip them into a whipped up mixture of light Karo syrup and cold margarine—so bad but so good!! Candies—those chalky little edible cigarettes, dinosaur egg jawbreakers, Nerds, Tiny Tarts (Tart n Tinies?), Tangy Taffy

    I’m sure there are more...

    Pierogis ! Made some today in the air fryer and reminded me of childhood. We are a polish family and used to make homemade ones with my grandma every Christmas. 0cmpljhpnikm.jpeg

    This is the first time I've really wanted an air fryer! Those look awesome. I'm half Slovak and pierogis were also a regular meal growing up.

    You can make these in a pan with a drop of oil or oil spray.
    You can make them in the oven, same idea.

    LOL

    Anybody remember Ribbon Candy, my mom always had some out during the holidays. I believe they still make it. No wonder I always had so many cavities as a kid. :/

    I always get a craving for plain Pillsbury crescents around the holidays. I never had the dough raw but I actually like the taste the best a day or two after when the rolls are cold Right from the fridge. I think because that’s how I used to eat them as a kid lol.

    It is such a texture thing for me when I eat dough. I love the texture of it, so it doesn't matter as much the taste.

    My grocery store sells the bigger (and smaller) ones year round... I can't be trusted around a bag. I'll polish it off!
