I was the very happy recipient of some complimentary cookie dough from Immaculate Baking Company the other day. While they make both gluten-filled and gluten-free goods, I receive the chocolate chunk gluten-free cookie dough. The chocolate chunk cookie dough is certified gluten-free by the GFCO. Not only are these cookies gluten-free, but they are dairy-free, too! Each package contains 12 chunks of cookie dough that come ready-to-bake. The result is 12 jumbo cookies that are perfect for snacking or using to make ice cream sandwiches on these hot summer days. Each cookie has 150 calories, 8 grams of fat and 1 gram of protein. The ingredient list isn’t too long:
Semisweet chocolate (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla) palm fruit and canola oils, brown sugar, potato starch, tapioca starch, cane sugar, rice flour, whole eggs, invert cane sugar, water, natural flavor, xanthan & guar gums, salt & baking soda.
The history of Immaculate Baking Company is a great read, so I am not going to spoil it all here, but I will summarize. Immaculate began way back when Scott Blackwell was 7 years old and saw the movie “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”. Great movie, right? Scott sends away for the “Make Your Own Wonka” bar kit. Scott sells his bars out of his wagon & his grandmother teaches him how to bake. The story continues on through Scott’s life up until the present. On May 17, 2003 Immaculate Baking Company baked the World’s Biggest Cookie in their Flat Rock, NC bakery. The cookie was 102 feet wide and over 140,000 pounds! That is one big cookie!
These cookies were super easy to make!
We just preheated the oven to 325, placed the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet & baked for 16 – 18 minutes.
The cookies will be golden brown when they are done.
We had to sit & stare at the cookies for 5 minutes before removing them from the cookie sheet and that was hard. The smell of freshly baked chocolate chunk cookies was torturing my soul.
They were certainly worth the wait! Oh, my – hot, gooey, chocolately excellence!! These cookies were just like home-baked! Jon loved them as much, if not more, than I did.
