An entire shop dedicated to edible cookie dough seems to be a possibility for Austin with the potential Texas expansion of mega-popular Dō from New York. Thanks to Eater Nashville’s sleuthing, it looks like the cookie dough bar already created dozens of Instagram accounts and web addresses for various city locations, from Houston, San Francisco, Boston, to Miami.
There’s already a blank Instagram account for the Austin one, as well as a web address, cookiedoaustin.com, which is registered to Dō owner Kristen Tomlan. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s expanding to the city anytime soon, but it does mean that she is considering all possibilities seriously. Eater reached out to Dō for comments; watch this space for updates.
Tomlan opened the cookie dough brick and mortar earlier this year to lengthly lines. Flavors range from classic cookie dough to combinations like oatmeal and M&Ms, funfetti with sprinkles and chocolate chips, s'mores, one with Dunkaroos, to others. The cookie dough is made using pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour so there's no fear of getting sick from the raw sweet substance, and, yes, customers can bring the dough home to bake their own cookies, too, if that’s your thing.
