Earlier this week I mentioned that I recently purchased Pillsbury’s gluten-free chocolate chip cookie dough.
When I found out that Pillsbury was going to sell a gluten-free line of products I was beyond thrilled. Pillsbury was always a go-to cookie dough for me prior to being diagnosed with Celiac Disease but since my diagnosis I haven’t found a good cookie dough. I think it’s safe to say that is not the case anymore.
The cookies were (obviously) super easy to bake. The directions say to scoop dough into tablespoon sized balls and place about 2 inches apart. I made a dozen cookies and easily have at least that much dough left over for a second batch. To be honest I did not want to make them all at once because I was not sure if they would stay soft after a couple days.
They did not flaten out much while they baked — something that often happens when I bake gluten-free cookies.
I may have eaten a couple right out of the oven. They were delicious. They were everything I remember a regular chocolate chip cookie tasting like. Steve (who’s not gluten-free) even enjoyed them.
After the cookies cooled I put them in a zip-lock bag and ate them throughout the week. We ended up finishing them 4 days later and they were still really soft and delicious!
I had a difficult time finding a grocery store selling the new product, but I’m sure that will not always be the case. If you love chocolate chip cookies you should give this cookie dough a try!
What’s the best gluten-free cookie you’ve ever had?
Do you prefer chocolate chip cookies or sugar cookies?
