Cookie Dough Review & Giveaway
Immaculate Baking Company, a company that makes All Natural and Organic lines of Ready-to-Bake doughs, now offers gluten-free, dairy-free cookie dough! They have one variety—chocolate chunk, and they sent me free samples to review for you.
Before agreeing to do product reviews, I always ask about manufacturing practices to avoid cross contamination. This is the information I was given:
After a full wash down to sanitize our machinery, we conduct a swab test to ensure it is negative for wheat and dairy. We do not store the gluten-free ingredients at the facility and instead bring them in when machinery is ready for production. We also isolate the production so no wheat products are in the vicinity while we're running the gluten free doughs.The Cookies:
We also meet the standards of the Gluten-Free Certification Organization and proudly display the symbol on our package.
The dough arrives in a styrofoam box with cold packs and should be refrigerated as soon as possible. Each package contains twelve cookie dough chunks like this:
Baking cookies couldn’t be easier! Just put them on an ungreased tray and bake them. The cookies do not spread much and turn out thick and soft. We really liked them. I was thrilled when I learned they were dairy free, but I did miss that buttery taste. My youngest son said, “Yours are better.” But then I told him these were dairy free and I have not yet made any dairy free cookies. Then he understood, and he still enjoyed eating them. I like a thick soft cookie, but if you want yours thinner you could probably just flatten out the dough and maybe divide it.
One winner will be randomly selected to receive two packs of gluten-free cookie dough. To enter, leave a comment on this post (please do not send an email) telling me your favorite type of cookie or if you have a favorite gluten-free cookie brand. The giveaway will end Friday, June 25th at 11:59 p.m. eastern time. The winner will be contacted by email so be sure to leave your address in the comment if your name is not linked to a blog where I can reach you. The winner will have 24 hours to respond before I pick a new winner. When I have heard back from the winner, I will announce it on Facebook.
When I do buy cookies, I enjoy Pamela's chocolate chunk or pecan cookies.
These look so easy and yummy!
dairy(cow)-free most of the time. Chcolate chip cookies are great!
It is great to have companies that use organic and natural products. I bake gf at home, and usually with anything store bought, my son resonates your son's comments, that homemade is better, but that was true when I was a kid and didn't know about needing to be GF. My mom's homemade cakes and cookies were always better than store made. It can be very helpful, especially with kids, when you don't have time to bake, to have a product like this in the freezer. I try to always have substitute treats for my son with school and friend activities. I'd love to try their cookies for such occasions.
Thanks for the review.
