Product: Immaculate Baking Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough – $3.99+
My neighbors are awesome. Let me just reiterate that fact now, if I haven’t said it enough in my previous blogs.
MY. NEIGHBORS. ARE. AWESOME.
I was downstairs having dinner with my amazing neighbors and friends on Sunday night (after a very entertaining game of cornhole), and we were just talking about anything and everything, as we very often do. For awhile, they were trying out a gluten free and casein free diet for their young son, but it wasn’t making much of an impact…so they dropped off the wagon for now. That being said, for a few weeks now, Michelle (that’s one of said neighbors) had been mentioning that Kroger now carried gluten-free and casein free cookies in the refrigerated section. I am rarely over that way, so after feeding me delicious red lentils for dinner (they had bison burgers, but she made these AMAZING lentils for me and for others to use as a side), she was packing up leftovers. They were keeping the remaining gluten-free and vegan corn pudding I made and she surprised me with a package of the very cookies she was talking about.
The Immaculate Baking Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough!
Immaculate Baking began with a cookie. Now that’s the best start to any story, don’t you think? Creator, Scott Blackwell used his garage to manifest a simple dream…to create perfect, mouth-watering, wholesome, homemade cookies that he could share with the world. Today, that dream is becoming a reality. Immaculate Baking offers cookies, sweet rolls, biscuits, pie crusts, and even…gluten-free cookies. All products remain true to the company’s commitment to use simple and carefully-selected ingredients…so that every bite is packed with amazing, mouth-watering, crave-worthy flavor and texture.
I have had the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough that is made by Immaculate Baking, and have to still give the Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookie Dough a try…but last night was all about chocolate. My roommate was craving it and I never say no to a cookie or chocolate. Two of my favorite things. So, out of the refrigerator (after being in there less than 24 hours) and onto a baking sheet these went. Yep…it is that easy. These break and bake cookies are little balls of dough that you pull apart and then set on the baking sheet. Place in a preheated 325°F oven for about 13-15 minutes and…at the end…you get an amazing, chocolatey-scented home…and fantastic little rounds of cookies.
Of course, the test is always with the taste. And so, I dished one up to my roommate and one to me. One bite…one bite and I was in chocolate cookie heaven. This reminded me, at first bite, fresh from the oven, of a warm pudding cake that I used to beg my mom to make for me. Fantastic chocolate flavor. Rich, chewy, and decadent. These are an amazing, chewy bite of cookie. Think about merging a dense, chewy brownie with a cookie…and that happy marriage is what this cookie is all about. I was enamored with it. I was lucky to hold myself to one. That’s how good these are. This is everything a cookie, gluten-free or not, should be. I’m beyond impressed.
Let’s talk ingredients, shall we? The Immaculate Baking Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough is made from palm fruit and canola oil, semisweet chocolate pieces (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla), powdered sugar (cane sugar, corn starch), potato starch, cane sugar, tapioca starch, rice flour, eggs, molasses, cocoa pressed with alkali, water, vanilla extract, xanthan gum, sea salt, guar gum and baking soda. These cookies are certified gluten free.
As far as nutrition goes, the decadent Immaculate Baking Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough makes 12 cookies…and a serving size is 1 of these cookies. This one cookie will provide you with 150 calories, 8 grams fat, 3.5 grams saturated fat, 0 grams trans fat, 5 mg cholesterol, 55 mg sodium, 19 grams carbohydrates, less than 1 gram fiber, 12 grams sugars, and less than 1 gram of protein. A sweet, not going to fill you up treat.
When a cookie that you don’t even have to dirty a bowl by mixing up a bunch of ingredients can spark memories and satisfy the biggest chocolate craving, you know something is amazing about them. Immaculate Baking made a cookie that is for the serious chocoholic. This cookie monster was beyond impressed…because it was everything I wanted in one perfect cookie. And, with the chewy and fudgy texture, you’d never guess these were gluten free.
I’m in a chocolate cookie coma…and I’m happy there. Join me!
