Just last month I shared the news that Pillsbury was launching three new gluten-free refrigerated dough products and yesterday I finally located them in a local Giant Eagle store. I didn’t have an easy time locating the products, It was the second Giant Eagle store where I looked for the new products that I finally found them. The first location didn’t know anything about the products, but after speaking with the manager, she was going to do her best to get them in soon, in addition to some other new gluten-free items.
I have a fun weekend of sampling planned out, but we couldn’t wait to dig into the cookies. Since the dough is already prepared, it is simple to make as many as you wish at a time. I opted to make 4 cookies, 3 for Jon and 1 for me.
The cookies are simple to prepare. Simply preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spoon dough by the tablespoonful onto a cookie sheet for 11-13 minutes.
The cookies didn’t spread a whole lot and were a little thicker than my homemade chocolate chip cookies. The dough is pretty firm when it is used right from the refrigerator, so I suspect that has something to do with it. It was all we could do to let these cookies cool down a bit to set before we dug right in.
I wish you could smell the heavenly aroma coming from these cookies! There is nothing better than a warm chocolate chip cookie! A little crisp on the outside and melty, gooey chocolate on the inside! I don’t think Jon stopped telling me how good the cookies were the whole time he was eating them! I know we will be buying these again!
The tub of Pillsbury Gluten-Free Cookie Dough costs $4.99 and has roughly 16 cookies worth of dough (when measured by the tablespoonful). This is a wonderful way for friends and family to be able to accommodate gluten-free guests without a high risk of cross-contamination. Simply line the cookie sheet with parchment paper for a clean surface.
Have you tried the new Pillsbury Gluten-Free Cookie Dough?
