Gluten-Free-Peanut-Butter-Cookie-PieAs 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!

    In my daughter’s class, there are kids who are gluten-free, vegan, and allergic to nuts, so sometimes I don’t even know what to send in! It’s great that Pillsbury is offering gluten-free choices now.

    I didn’t realize that Pillsbury had gluten-free products now. I don’t eat gluten free, but I entertain guests that do. Useful info! Thanks

    i notice a lot of GF products because some of our closest family friends are recently gluten free and when we get together, we want for all of us to be able to enjoy the same foods.

    Gluten free doughs! That’s awesome. A lot of people think gluten free can’t be delicious, but they’re so wrong. This cookies sound amazing … and great pics too!

    I only just the other day learned that Pillsbury has gluten free products so I’ve been watching for them. I don’t have celiac disease but I do have a gluten intolerance, so I have to be careful of what I eat. I can eat gluten, I just pay for it with a really sore stomach for the next couple of hours. So I definitely try to opt for gluten free foods wherever I can!

    That looks absolutely scrumptious! There are so many products now that are gluten free – which is great to have that option.
