Immaculate Baking Company Cookie Dough Review

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to make my own cookies from scratch and I do make them for my hubby. He is a cookie monster! He can't go for more than a week without cookies (a whole two dozen of them). With a baby though, things are not always so simple. Some days I intend to make this, bake that, do laundry, clean the house, but it just doesn't happen as planned. Enter Immaculate Baking Company, with dough that most closely matches my own homemade cookies. Even better, theirs is made with organic ingredients - unlike mine.

The Taste Test: The Immaculate Baking Company was kind enough to let me try this dough, and let me tell you, I can't even compare it with other store bought dough I have tried in the past. Not to mention these have healthier ingredients with no fillers or anything artificial (well, as healthy as a sugary cookie can be). So we got the Chocolate Chunk dough. The package was a little tough to open by hand, so a pair of scissors is handy. I see that as a good thing, it means they will not get damaged in shipment and they are safe and sound in their predator proof package. I found that placing them one inch apart was sufficient. I just love that I don't have to spend time on the dough and I can have them ready in ten minutes. Just perfect for surprise company over for tea. Take note, they might not look ready in ten minutes, but trust me, they are! They will be soft to the touch when you take them out, but don't let it fool you. They will get slightly harder as they cool. The important thing is - the cookies passed the husband tasting test. He loved them and said they are almost as good as mine (was he just being nice?). Look at the photos, they taste even better than they look!

Value: Around here (Boston) you can buy them at Whole Foods, BJ's, Shaws, Stop & Shop, Hannaford, Market Basket, etc. At BJs you can get a double pack, 48 cookies for $5.99, but Market Basket had a real good deal of two 24 packs for $5.00 the last time I checked. That might have been a temporary special. Wouldn't you think they should be cheaper selling wholesale at BJs? Yeah, I don't know what the BJs folks are thinking. I haven't been to Whole Foods, but they run at about $3.49-3.99 for a package of 24 there. They have a ton of stores that sell their dough, there is most likely one close to you, just check out the store locator in the wiki.

WARNING: I am warning you, and don't tell me I didn't! If you buy these and you are home by yourself, DO NOT bake all 24, you'll end up eating a lot more than you should. If you've got company though or the whole family is home, go ahead with the 24, or even double that - they'll be gone in no time. They look small, but they pack a punch. Would be even more splendid if these came in a resealable pouch so you don't have to make the whole package at once.

Bonus, they do a whole lot of good with fundraisers and supporting the arts. Check out this video:
