Imagine my surprise when the chief baker-in-residence returned from the grocery store with PRE-PACKAGED, PRE-CUT dare I say, REFRIGERATED raw cookie dough?! But, oh what find!
However, he knew he would have to make a case for this unusual purchase given our penchant for homemade confections, and so he began...
Done! I loved this little cookie before I even tasted it. It had beaten the odds, made it into our store-bought-confection-free zone and wheedled its way into our hearts with a good story.
So what about the cookie itself? First of all...wow, so convenient and fast! Yes, sometimes convenience and speed have their merits, especially when it comes to eating cookies. Pop these precut pieces (made with real ingredients like you would use) into the oven (Mavenjoy Tip: Consider using your toaster oven, less consumption -- energy and calories!) and five minutes in, the aroma of fresh, homemade cookies fills the kitchen and in five more minutes, you've got hot, ooey-gooey yet lightly crisp honest-to-goodness chocolate wonderment! That is, if you try the Triple Chocolate ones, which are our favorites, but you can also choose from Vanilla Sugar, Oatmeal Raisin or even Pecan Caramel Milk Chocolate... need I go on? Note: don't over cook these little guys.
Gluten free cookies too! There's gluten free cookie dough in Chocolate Chunk. Spread a little ice cream between two of these jumbo cookies and the beloved ice cream sandwich rises again -- for gluten free'ers no less. **New Flavor** Now in Fudge Brownie Gluten Free Cookie Dough too!. (Also try this semi-homemade recipe for gluten free cookies made with brownie mix--super simple, super rich!)
So check out Immaculate Baking Co. -- great story, great website, delicious cookies plus brownies and scones and buttermilk biscuits?!?? Oh my!
What's the best all natural or organic cookie that you've discovered? Although it's tough to beat homemade, hot out of the oven cookies, there truly are some worthy options of the store-bought variety. Share the store-bought cookies that have won you over and are also made with all natural or organic ingredients. What makes them so good? We'd love to hear about the company or bakery behind the cookie too -- what's their story?
