Eat Pastry Cookie Dough

My friend Hilary and I were perusing for Whole Foods, primarily looking for some Sharkies electrolyte gummies for my long runs, when we stumbled into her favorite section: cookie dough.  I was used to having this be totally off-limits for me so you can imagine my surprise when we found a vegan, gluten free cookie dough on the shelf!

Eat Pastry is a line of vegan cookie dough; the company also makes a gluten free chocolate chunk flavor, pictured above.  Hilary and I decided to give it a whirl to check it out.  I had never before seen a gluten free cookie dough available on the shelves and was excited to check it out.

When we went home we immediately set out to make the cookies.  They were very simple to make, just as prepared cookie dough should be.  We placed them on a cookie sheet (surprisingly not pink, given Hilary's assortment of pink kitchen products) and 15 minutes later the cookies were ready to come out of the oven.

The cookies were good!  They were tasty and and not at all grainy or strangely textured, as many gluten free cookies can be.  I appreciated the ease of baking them.  While using a mix isn't that much more difficult, as someone who doesn't eat eggs it is sometimes frustrating to buy a dozen eggs for one simple recipe.  I often experiment with applesauce as an egg replacement but haven't yet honed that to perfection.  That being said, these cookies are a simple vegan and gluten-free product that can quickly prepare you for friends coming over.  The cookie dough provided a good number of cookies and was very simple to form and bake on the sheet.

Check back soon for a post on another gluten free cookie dough mix -- Hilary and I found both in one visit to Whole Foods!
