All of the regular readers here know that I was diagnosed with Celiac’s Disease when I was 18 years old, and have lived gluten-free ever since. Back then, it was really pretty difficult to do gluten-free. Not many people knew what gluten even was, and lots of food-related things took twice as long, that’s for sure. As time has gone on, various companies have created products that make living gluten-free MUCH easier! For them I am thankful! And today, I want to share with you about a new item I tried: Pillsbury Gluten-Free Cookie Dough.
Yep, that’s what it looks like! You can find Pillsbury Gluten-Free Cookie Dough in the refrigerated section at your grocery store, right by the regular cookie doughs. They also have gluten-free pizza crust dough and gluten-free pie crust dough – imagine that!
But who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie?! With a glass of cold milk? (Okay, now I’m hungry!)
I like that this dough was in a tub, so if you wanted to just scoop a few spoonfuls to make a couple cookies to satisfy a lil’ sweet craving, the container is perfect!
The dough itself was a little difficult to work with…dry, almost…but all I was doing was putting it on the cookie sheet and pressing it together a bit, so that caused no real issues.
But the final cookie was YUMMY! Oh my goodness! (And my non-gluten-free husband enjoyed them as well, which is always a testament to the product!)
Now, some of you are doing gluten-free and low sugar or even sugar-free, too. If so, then this product is not for you. The first ingredient is brown sugar, and regular sugar is on down the list, too. I personally think there could have been less sugar added to these and they would have still been delish, but of course, that’s why you would make your own cookie dough and not use ready-made!
On that note, I also enjoy experimenting with creating from scratch gluten-free meals, but sometimes, life does not allow for it, and it’s always great to have a backup plan!
Have you ever had a gluten-free cookie? What did you think?
