Fact: cookie dough is the most delicious thing humans have created as a species. Cookie dough is better than actual cookies. Why do we even bother making cookies when the dough is perfect as is? These are the kinds of questions that keep me up at night.

Luckily, someone out there agrees with me. According to the Poughkeepsie Journal, a new eatery called Dough Life is making its way to the Poughkeepsie Galleria Mall, and it specializes in all things cookie dough. Basically, I need it in my life right now.

Dough Life first opened about a year ago in the owner's hometown of Buffalo, and has quickly expanded to eight locations in New York and New Jersey. The owner, Joseph Francabandiero, tells the Poughkeepsie Journal that "Poughkeepsie has been on my mind from early on... it was just a matter of finding the right location."

Dough Life will be opening at the mall where Teavana used to be, and we should see it by early May.
