Slice-and-Bake Cookie Dough

After Jean Langenegger Schultz ’51 graduated with a degree in food science, she took her talents to Oscar Mayer. While looking for new ways to utilize a machine that packaged sandwich spread into tubes, she developed a new product entirely: slice-and-bake cookie dough. Oscar Mayer sold the product to Pillsbury, and though you should thank her for easy access to fresh, warm cookies, don’t blame her for anything that happens if you sneak a taste of raw dough.
