(CNN) - The CDC wants you to say no to raw cookie dough.

This holiday season, you might find yourself whipping up a batch of delicious cookies in the kitchen.

But you may want to think twice before reaching for a taste of that raw dough.

The CDC is using this holiday season to remind all the bakers out there that eating or tasting unbaked products can make you sick.

Flour and raw eggs especially can contain bacteria and salmonella respectively.

So as much as you may want to sneak a taste, it's better for your health to wait until the treats are fully cooked.

The CDC has a full list of safe food handling practices on its website.
