  5. Whisk 2 egg whites and your vanilla for 30 seconds. Add in one whole egg, and whisk another 20 seconds.

  7. Add in your chocolate chips, and mix until combined.
  8. Grab two cookie sheets, and line them with parchment paper.

  10. Bake for 14 – 16 minutes, switching racks halfway through.
  11. Let cool on cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
  12. Allow to cool for two more minutes before serving. Enjoy!!

Immaculate Baking Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix (a review)

Hey There! Come on in! Today we’re talking about¬†Immaculate Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Dough¬†Mix¬†! ūüėÄ We bought this mix at Walmart, but you can find it at¬†Kroger, which is where I saw it this morning,¬†or at a number of other grocery stores. You can also buy it in bulk at¬†Amazon.¬†¬†(And trust me, you¬†will¬†want to buy it in bulk.)

I am going to do a pros and cons list for these today. It just works. Let’s get into the review, shall we?

Pros:

  • Easy to make.
  • It makes decent sized cookies. No pesky quarter-size cookie niblet wannabes here.
  • Makes quite a few.¬†(About a dozen and a half.)
  • Soft and chewy cookies.
  • They’re fluffy.
  • Basically, these cookies are like a soft style of¬†these.

Cons:

  • They’re a wee bit crumbly. Not a deal breaker by any means.

These cookies are DELICIOUS! They’d be adorable frosted and possibly even cuter with sprinkles! ūüėČ
I’d highly recommend these. They’d be perfect for birthday or dinner parties, bible study snacks, school lunches, dessert with dinner, or just a general snack throughout your day. They would not be great rolled out into shapes, but the decorating options with colored sugars/gluten free jimmies or topping with your favorite gluten free frosting are endless.

I’m not saying y’all need to go right out today and try these, but I’d highly suggest it! If y’all are in the market for a Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix soon, this would certainly be the mix I would recommend.

Oh, and as always, all the opinions expressed in this post are solely my own! Immaculate Baking has no clue who I am!

Hope y’all have a WONDERFUL day! I am going to go find out if my mom snagged the last of our sugar cookies.
Wish me luck!
Love,

WOW Baking Company Is the BEST!

Okay. This is more of a product recommendation than a review.

Do you see where it says, “You won’t believe these are wheat & gluten- free?!?” Well, do you? Because it¬†is¬†the honest to goodness truth. I love these, and so does every person I’ve introduced them to.

The VERY BEST thing about WOW (With Out Wheat) Baking Company is that they have TONS of cookie flavors in addition to cake mixes, and tubs of cookie dough.

My very favorite flavor is the¬†Lemon Burst,¬†with the¬†Snickerdoodle¬†cookies coming in at a¬†VERY¬†close second. I’ve also tried the¬†Peanut Butter¬†cookies, which were okay, and the¬†Ginger Molasses¬†which were not so great.

I’m looking forward to trying the newest flavor:¬†Key Lime White Chocolate Cookies!

Oh, and for fall, they have¬†Maple Squares. Um, hello. I need these in my life! ūüėČ

Here are all their bagged cookie flavors:

I have a deep appreciation for what¬†WOW Baking Company¬†has done for the Gluten Free Community, and I hope y’all will give them a try!

By the way, all opinions expressed in this post are totally mine. WOW Baking Company has no clue I exist . . . yet. I do truly  love their products!

Let me know which flavor sounds best to you in the comments below!

Have a great day!!
Love,
Olivia
