By · Print This Post Print This Post

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN A POST ON AUG. 26, 2013.
Giveaway details listed below.

It seems every year, we get more and more companies finally joining the gluten-free community. I am grateful to the pioneers in the gluten-free food industry, and still enjoy many of the gluten-free food products that have been available for years. But, well-known food manufacturers like Pillsbury® are able to get their products into the mainstream grocery stores faster and are more widespread throughout the country. I am so happy to help spread the word that Pillsbury® has three new gluten-free doughs that you can find in the refrigerated section of the grocery stores with the usual refrigerated biscuits, etc.

I was so excited when I was contacted to participate in a paid promotion for the Pillsbury® gluten-free products. I was told I would be sent samples of each of the three doughs to try. Great! But I couldn’t wait to get the samples, so I picked some up at the grocery store on my next shopping day. I had no trouble finding the dough where other refrigerated Pillsbury® products are usually found.

PillsburyCookieDoughI was so glad to see that the tubs of dough were already at the grocery stores! I couldn’t wait to try the chocolate chip cookies. But, I was also a little worried that the cookies wouldn’t be like the Pillsbury® cookies I remember from childhood. Guess what? This gluten-free variety surprisingly tastes so much like the original, it’s amazing! They were soft and chewy, with just a little crispiness on the edges. It was hard not to eat them all at once. However, I did place limits on how many my family was allowed to eat the first day. I wanted to see how the cookies would be after sitting out, so I managed to save a few for the next two days. And, I have to say, they were just as good on day three.

My notes about the cookies:

  • PillsburyCookieScoopsSo quick and easy to make that I didn’t even wait for the dough to come to room temperature. I dug right in and began scooping out the dough and putting on a cookie sheet. I had it all ready to go into the oven by the time the oven was preheated.
  • Makes about 16 cookies, larger than I expected.
  • The cookies also didn’t spread as much as I expected.
  • No need to grease the cookie sheet.
    No need for parchment paper nor silicone baking mat either. The cookies bake nicely, and easily come off the cookie sheet with a spatula.
  • PillsburyCookiesNo trouble cooking at high altitude. Since moving to the Denver, CO area, I’ve had trouble with some cookie recipes. These baked up great using the directions printed on the package:  Bake at 350°F for 11-13 min.
  • Stayed fresh in a container on the counter for a few days.
  • Convenient Packaging. I love the plastic tubs they come in. It makes it so easy to scoop out a few cookies to bake at a time (that is, if you can restrict yourself to a few). I actually found that it was also great for making Gluten-Free Cookie Dough Ice Cream. (Though the package does say: “Please do not eat raw dough.” oops!)
  • PillsburyCookies2“Ingredients: Brown Sugar, Rice Flour, Semisweet Chocolate Chips (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, natural flavor),Water, palm Oil, Canola Oil, Sugar, Corn Starch, Modified Potato Starch, Contains 2% or Less of: Eggs, Modified Tapioca Starch, Salt, Baking Soda, Xanthan Gum, Natural Flavor.”
  • And Allergens: “Contains Egg, Soy and Milk Ingredients.”
  • I paid about $4.50 in the grocery store.
  • Yes, I would buy again for special treats.

5

Yeah for more gluten-free options! These products could make a real difference in my house. We all could eat the same cookies together, instead of having “my” cookies and the “other” cookies :-)

6

I have always liked Pillsbury products but since going gluten-free I haven’t been able to enjoy them. Now that they have gone gluten-free, I can enjoy their products again! Can’t wait till they are in my store! Ah, fresh cookies anytime.

7

My husband is the Celiac in this family and I’m always on the look out for GF foods that are easy and taste good. The Pillsbury doughs are on my to try list and it would be even better to try them as a prize. :)

8

I’d love to bake these with my gluten-free diet friend!

9

Pillsbury now gives me an easy option to bake gluten free with my grandchildren.

10

I have been looking all over for the new gluten free Pillsbury products and no luck!! My son has Celiac and I can’t wait to find this for him, we only bake gluten free to ensure no cross contamination.

11

I also can’t wait to try these. My husband is GF, and this will give us more dinner options.

12

I was so excited when I heard about the Pillsbury G-F doughs! I’m looking forward to making a G-F pie again without pulling out a scale to measure everything, what a time saver!

13

Tricia – Have you tried the Pillsbury Product Locator? Maybe it could find a store in your area. Good luck!

14

I can’t wait to try out the Pillsbury GF products. They would be so convenient!!

I would love to win this i am so happy Pillsbury has made a Gluten Free cookie dough. I have 6 chronic Illness’s and I can no longer cook from scratch and I miss warm homemade chocolate chip cookies so this is wonderful news for me. Thank you

17

Oh I would love to win! I was diagnosed about 6 years ago now with Celiac Disease. I will say it has come so far over the past six years and I was so excited to see Pillsbury come out with these products! I would love to make my own pies and pizza crust and I am sure the chocolate chip cookies are amazing! So excited!!! I would love not having to go to the Health food store for special trips!

18

My 8-yr. old son was just diagnosed last week and he loves to bake, so we definitely want to try these! Thanks

19

My 5 year old was diagnosed a little under a year ago, and he misses doughnuts and pies- two things I am terrible at making from scratch, and doubly as bad with GF bases. He’d adore some cinna sprinkled blueberry pie!

20

I have grandchildren who have behavioral problems and have heard that switching to a gluten-free diet may help them. I am so excited that Pillsbury came out with a product that’s so easy to try and I can see if it makes a difference with their behavior.

21

I would love to try these because they would save me a lot of prep time in the kitchen. I hate making my own pie crusts…

22

Im excited to try this because several of my family members are gluten-intolerant and I would love to bake these for them!!

23

I recently found out that I’m gluten intolerant and was struggling to do what I love to do best: baking. Between working and going to school full time, it’s sometimes difficult to find the time to make desserts so I’m so excited that this is a quick, easy, and delicious solution!

24

I’ve yet to see these in my local stores. How convenient! I’ve been bringing gluten free goodies to the small group bible study to show folks how good they are. Now I could show them how easy they are also.

26

i would love to try these! gluten free cookie dough would add SO much convenience to my life and to my sweet tooth!

27

I did not know that Pillsbury made these until reading your blog. I had to go out and try one of them immediately! The pie crust changed my gluten-free life. For 8 years, I’ve searched for a decent gluten free pie crust. Pillsbury not only made a tasty dough, they made it easy, convenient, and somewhat economically viable! Next up: cookie dough!

28

We have increasingly been buying gluten-free, and this would be a great addition. I am primarily interested in the cookies, but the others look great too.

29

I have been wanting to try gluten free but haven’t yet. I keep reading that it is better for you.

this would be so great and so convenient…..just like the days before celiac!!!!!!!!!!

31

i have a slight gluten intolerance

32

Having a kiddo who is gf means going to parties and get togethers is tricky in the food and especially dessert area. With the help of products like this from companies that we grew up loving, we can easily pack a aback or two of our own to take with us!! So exited to try these new products!!

33

DH can no longer eat gluten, would love to win this to make baking cookies a cinch! I really would like to try the cookie dough, haven’t been able to find it anywhere.

The minute we heard that Pillsbury was going to have GF products, my mom and I couldn’t wait to find them at our local grocery stores. About a month ago, my mom surprised me at my office with a plate of the GF chocolate chip cookies that she had just baked. I put them out to share with my coworkers, and within an hour, they were gone! So delicious! I can’t wait to try Pillsbury’s other GF products!

41

This is great news. Thank you Pillsbury for accommodating the many people who eat gluten-free. Can’t wait to try these products.

[…] first two reviews I wrote of the Pillsbury® Gluten-Free Doughs, you may want to read them, too:  Pillsbury® Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Pillsbury® Gltuen-Free Pizza […]

52

I am new to the Celiac Family site and i love it. I was only diagnosed with gluten intolerance a few months ago, so i am still getting use to it. I was just thinking, what am i going to do for the holidays this year. I will miss all the pies and cookies… So i’ve began looking on celiacfamily site for gluten free pie crust, cookies etc… Then i noticed Pillsbury had pre-made crust, i got really excited. This is awesome! And i have been really craving cookies lately. I am going to have fun with this…

53

We are so excited and I am headed to my grocers website next to see if I can purchase some of the GF Pillsbury cookie dough tonight! My daughter who is Celiac will be thrilled! Thanks, Pillsbury for making life just a little sweeter for our GF girl!

54

Our son who is gluten intolerant will LOVE the chance to have good cookies again.

55

I like that I don’t have to make it it ready to go and easy

56

It’s easy and ready to go, top two reasons for buying it. Also as a full-time student and mom, this means being able to provide fresh baked cookies for my daughter without the hassle of starting from scratch.

57

Do not eat this if you’re very sensitive!! I was hopeful for it , made chicken potpie first time in 2 years since being gluten free, few bites, gagging and choking and bloating and running to the bathroom..I just want others to know if you’re sensitive badly to gluten do not eat this.
