I love the idea of these gluten free chocolate chip cookies!
Joan’s GF Great Bakes sent me this ready to bake cookie dough to try out. I was amazed- they are even pre-scooped/shaped! All you have to do is place the scoops of frozen dough on a cookie sheet, bake, and then eat. It doesn’t get much easier than that for fresh baked gluten free cookies! Each package is 10 ounces and contains enough dough for 12 cookies and cost $10.
Unfortunately, my cookies don’t look very appetizing, even though they tasted really good. I fully blame my high altitide location for this, though, since this used to happen with my own home made cookies.
These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are sweet and chewy. The flavor is pleasant and doesn’t scream “I’m gluten free!” My picky children even liked these. The texture was difficult to assertain since they flopped flat in my oven, but I didn’t sense any grittiness or coarseness, which was another bonus.
Overall, these are tasty cookies that are a great option when you want fresh baked gluten free cookies, without the mess or fuss.
Pros: great flavor, easy prep
Cons: Results vary with higher altitude locations, expensive
