The stars have aligned, and so have the pastry mixers. Open your mind to these twelve cookie dough recipes (safe and specially designed to be eaten uncooked) and see what culinary guidance lies in the chocolate chips and raisins.

Aries: Chocolate chip cookie dough pizza

Your various responsibilities swirl like tapioca pearls in a blender, so find your centre…the centre of a thick, rich cookie dough pizza with a chocolate chip crust! This recipe is eggless but soft and reminds you, Aries, to flow around the obstacles in your life like the chocolate sauce this “pizza” is drizzled in.

Lucky toppings: Butterscotch sauce, chocolate sprinkles, maraschino cherries

Taurus: Cookie dough swirl marshmallows

You’re a raging bull in the kitchen, Taurus, never cutting corners or taking shortcuts. You scoff at so-called “all-purpose” flour, and if the recipe calls for heavy whipping cream, you’ll never settle for medium. But sometimes it’s good to lighten up now and then…literally, with these fluffy, white cookie dough/marshmallow squares with chocolate chips on top.

Lucky toppings: Gummy bears, ground Oreo cookies

Gemini: Cookie dough-stuffed chocolate chip cookie sandwiches

You’re a diplomat at heart, taking it on yourself to settle dinner party disputes before things descend into ordering pizza again. And with these cookie dough-stuffed cookie sandwiches, you can broker a peace between people who love fresh-baked cookies, and dough-lovers who would rather nix the oven entirely.

Lucky toppings: Mini marshmallows, raisins

Cancer: Eggnog cookie dough truffles

You’re a true original who cooks to a different recipe book, yet somehow people find your table warm and inviting. While others may make sweet, cinnamon eggnog cookie dough truffles only around Christmas, they’ll come to your kitchen all year round.

Lucky toppings: Ground nuts, citrus shavings, blueberries

Leo: Simple (edible) sugar cookie dough

You, Leo, are a strong, independent chef who doesn’t need any fancy gimmicks to dazzle your diners. Kids have been sneaking bites of sugar cookie dough for time immemorial, so why mess with simple perfection?

Lucky toppings: M&Ms candies, mini marshmallows, ground Kit-Kat bars

Virgo: No-bake cookie dough cheesecake

Who’s that Virgo in the corner table? You’re the vanilla extract of the horoscope: You shows up everywhere, but rarely stands out. Time for a bold change! Come out cookies-blazing with these cheesecake cookie dough cups that will leave them wondering what hit ‘em!

Lucky toppings: Ground almonds, graham cracker dust

Libra: Chocolate chip cookie-crusted cookie dough ice cream pie

You are a natural protector, Libra, and you will go out of your way to make the people you care about feel safe. A gastronomical counterpoint to Aries, a pizza is too aggressive, but a thick, fluffy, ice-cream-infused cookie dough pie is something everyone can feel good about.

Lucky toppings: Chocolate syrup, whipped cream, marshmallow sauce

Scorpio: Vegan cookie dough

Like a pot pie, you are full of secret, hidden depths, Scorpio, but this week is not an auspicious time to reveal your true self. Instead, maintain the illusion with this egg and dairy-free cookie dough that looks and tastes like the real thing.

Lucky toppings: Powdered sugar, ground peanuts

Sagittarius: Cookie dough gyoza with ice cream filling

Trouble in love (your partner didn’t like your soufflé) or frustration at work (that guy from accounting keeps microwaving fish) have seasoned your life of late, so it’s time to broaden your horizons and invite new experiences with these Japanese-inspired cookie dough-crusted, ice cream-filled dumplings.

Lucky toppings: Maple syrup

Capricorn: Grain-free rocky road cookie dough

Capricorns are naturally gluten free (please don’t check with a real astrologer about that), and we’re sorry to say that bakery café meetings and pasta night invitations are in your future this week. Retreat into the chocolatey, marshmallow goodness of this grain-free rocky road cookie dough designed to be eaten like ice cream.

Lucky toppings: None

Aquarius: Deep fried cookie dough balls

As optimistic as you are bold, you never believe people when they tell you something can’t be done. Sometimes you should follow their advice (remember that sardine-infused asparagus lasagne?), but this is your week to do the impossible with these deep-fried cookie dough balls.

Lucky toppings: Powdered sugar, strawberry jam

Pisces: Bailey’s Irish Cream cookie dough truffles

Your star sign means “fish”, Pisces, and you might want to drink like one as it will be a turbulent season ahead. Instead, seek stability in your life with these white chocolate-crusted cookie dough truffles infused with sweet Bailey’s cream liqueur.

Lucky toppings: More Bailey’s
