AI was making cookies for my son's last day of school this morning at 9 AM when the power went out. It was only supposed to be out for a few hours but ended up being out for 9.5 hours. The uncooked dough has been sitting on cookie sheets waiting to be baked. Is it all trash from not reign refrigerated? The dough contains eggs yolks. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I don't want anyone to get sick.

I think they'd be fine.

uh, I don't think it will be fine.  It would be good for 4 hours maximum outside refrigeration.  Unless there was a ton of sugar in the dough, and even then you'd need to know the Ph of the dough.  Better be safe than sorry - trash it.  Especially if these will be eaten by children - by definintion a group of people with immature immune systems.

This. It's not worth the risk.
