While I am certainly not averse to raw foods, I can't imagine how one would make raw cookies. Seems like a contradiction in terms. Raw cookie dough, yes, but raw finished cookies? Call me a skeptic.
However, I can see how raw butternut squash might make a good salad, and I'd certainly like to try it as noodles, since I do love pasta.
My favorite butternut squash recipe, though, is for butternut squash pie. You cook the squash, puree it and make what amounts to a pumpkin pie with it. Only it's much less stringy and pulpy. Yum.
Still, the salad recipe in the article might be enough to get me to try the butternut squash raw. It's an interesting experiment, in any case.
