Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookie Pie Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bars *Featuring Pillsbury Gluten Free Cookie DoughAs many of you know, my four year old child needs to medically follow a gluten free diet. While getting her diagnosis at such a young age was a blessing, it is also hard at times..very hard! Long gone are the careless days of going out to eat, easily attending parties, and care-free cooking, and baking. Now, I am very limited as to where I can eat out, and cooking must be done with extra special care, and caution.

Since I love to bake, I have been doing tons of ingredient experimenting. Sometimes my creations are a hit, and sometimes they fall really flat. I find gluten free baking is almost an art that you have to achieve. It is a little trickier than conventional baking, and requires more time, and effort. While I love to make my daughter cookies, and treats she can enjoy, I do not always have the time to prepare cookies from scratch. That is why I am over the moon that Pillsbury now has Gluten Free Cookie Dough –whoohoo! Finally, a company has realized that not everyone can enjoy regular refrigerated cookie dough.

Actually, Pillsbury now has a total of three Gluten Free Doughs on the market!

  • Pillsbury Gluten Free Cookie Dough
  • Pillsbury Gluten Free Pie and Pastry Dough
  • Pillsbury Gluten Free Pizza Crust Dough

The folks at Pillsbury recently sent us three vouchers to try out their dough products. I actually had tried 2/3 of their gluten free doughs, and was just waiting on my store to get their Gluten Free Cookie Dough. We love chocolate chip cookies so it would be a real treat to have some my daughter could enjoy without any worries.

Pillsbury was also kind enough to send me some of their coveted, branded swag! I received a super cute tee shirt, and a lovely box containing a pizza cutter, premium pie plate, and cookie sheet. I am in love with the pans because they are so shiny, and heavy duty!

Along with this swag came a letter that encouraged me to use the Pillsbury Gluten Free Cookie Dough in an out of the box way. I thought long, and hard, and finally settled on making Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bars *Featuring Pillsbury Gluten Free Cookie Dough. I knew these would be way easier to make since I did not have to roll out dough from scratch!

So I definitely try to opt for gluten free foods wherever I can!
