Every now and again, I get excited when I come across something new when it comes to food finds. As some of my friends know, I try and find things for my mother in law, Bonnie and my sister, Mendi, whom have celiac disease. So when I went shopping a few weeks ago, I ran across this tub in the refrigeration section at the Wal-Mart in the next town over. This got me very tickled. So seeing that Pillsbury now had Gluten Free made me say, "OHHH YEAH!" The cost was about $3. Which was bearable for being Gluten Free. However, living Gluten Free, isn't cheap at all....most of the time, that is. However, I bought the tub and headed home after I got the rest of my shopping done. Pillsbury is such a great trusted brand, I had my faith in the product I bought. And rightfully so. They also had a selection of Gluten Free pie crust & pizza dough. But I'll save that for another blog at a later date.
I took a photo of the Nutritional Facts & Ingredients on the side of tub, so all could see was in it, just to make it easier for one to decide whether or not to purchase. However, if you look at my photos below, you will see, an outstanding product that Pillsbury developed for a quick and easy of product to bake. They turned out just great.
 So, here's the steps from opening the tub to the end product.
Turning on the oven per instructions on the tub, lining 2 pans with parchment paper, using a small tablespoon cookie scooper, scooped out 16 dollops (8 on each pan).
Placed in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
 And wah-LAA!!!! 16 beautiful chocolate chip cookies that were totally divine! These little morsels were soo good, that I got about 2 cookies to myself and my family devoured the rest. Again, quick, easy & totally simple. The ease of them without fussing to make Gluten Free from scratch, was just great. I still love to make from scratch, BUT for those that need Gluten Free & have something on the whim when the need for chocolately gooey-ness rather quickly...this is the way to go. For sure! 
 The cookies were nice, they didn't spread out flat, the stayed nice and thick & ultra soft in the center, they were the perfect portion size. No dry grainy-ness after they were baked. The texture couldn't tell they were Gluten Free. They were amazing! My family really loved them.
 So WTG #Pillsbury ... totally WTG! Y'all need to check out your local store's refrigeration's section for this tub of cookie dough. It's worth the buy.
I, Melissa Goff, aka mis7up @The7upExperience....have given my opinion of the said product and am not paid to by the company. My opinion is solely mine own. Thank you for stopping by.

I can't imagine what it is like to have such a disease and not be able to have cookies. Glad you found a product your family could enjoy!

Hi Mis7up, I also have celiac's. In case you didn't know, Duncan Hines makes GF Cake, Brownie, Choc Chip mixes. They are awesome. Tases like the real thing, in fact that all I use, even if we have company. No one can tell the difference. I make a great coffee cake, using the GF cake mix, instant vanilla pudding, sour cream, cinnamon, cocoa and pecans, Its great. I will have to try the Pillsbury pie crust, sounds interesting. I miss eating pie.

So glad they worked out for you, Melissa! I've seen them in my grocery store selling for $4.99, which I thought was still reasonable for being gluten free. They look REALLY good. Maybe when they go on sale, I'll get a tub to try.

vanillabean, ty and yes I did know that. ;-) I make that for my MIL when we have gatherings. And I flavor the white cake with different extracts as to change it up a bit from an organic place here in Oregon. I have to watch the GF products though, if they use bean flour in them, I can't make them for her....which bites. But these cookies were great!

Thanks for posting this mis7up and for thinking of posting the ingredient label, too! I'm GF and haven't seen these yet, but now know to look for them. :-) I've seen some of your wonderful creations and, if you liked these cookies, they must be good!

My favorite family cooking traditions
Funny but true: Cooking traditions men sit in the recliner and women in the My family is always in the kitchen. My sister and her family, my parents and my family celebrate Christmas in January. Due to distance and work related jobs. Every year we plan what we are having ahead of time. Our tradition is usually food we've had abroad growing up overseas. Normally with Asia influences. It's always a special treat when we normally don't make the dishes often throughout the year.
My cooking triumphs
Unknown to me when I came up with a chicken and dumpling recipe of my own, my father was floored & delighted and told me it tasted just like his mother's.......My mom dropped her jaw because it was better then her's. It's a staple with my husband and kids.
My cooking tragedies
I had found a recipe for a Pretzel Pie(like Pecan Pie), thought it looked good and I didn't follow the recipe when it said unsalted pretzels. I just grabbed the normal stuff with the salt on it, made the pie, and my dad and husband were painting with thrist. And making weird pickle sour expressions, when I realized the pie was over salted. Oopppss! I never made it again.
