Thank you Pillsbury! You have once again out done yourself with your new offerings of gluten free pie and pastry crust, chocolate chip cookie dough, and thin crust pizza dough, pre-made in tubs for convenience.

 I was recently surprised that General Mills, who owns Pillsbury, has long been a friend of the gluten-free community. Its associated companies now offer more than 300 gluten-free products. Chex Cereal was its first mainstream product followed by Betty Crocker baking mixes. Today there are seven varieties of gluten-free Chex cereal. Now Pillsbury has added 3 new gluten free varieties of dough in tubs for us to enjoy.

I discovered this merely by accident when our local Giant Eagle ran an ad for these three dough's in their sale flyer. Needless to say I was off in a dash to purchase some...The sale price was a little over $3.40 and the tubs looked rather small, but I opted for the chocolate chip cookie dough and the pizza crust anyway.

The Pillsbury team had developed at least a dozen different formulas to test. Wheat flour was eliminated. The cookie dough contains rice flour. The pie crusts have rice and sorghum flour. The thin pizza crust contains tapioca starch, rice, millet and sorghum flour.

I love chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven, and since I like to dunk them they had to pass the ‘dunk-able’ test, meaning it wouldn’t crumble when dunked  in milk, as well as tasting good.” I was not disappointed. The cookies browned evenly, were moist and chewy, and help up to my "dunk" test without crumbling. Although the tub looks a little small I did get over 1 1/2 dozen fresh baked cookies fresh from the oven, more than I had expected...YUM!

Very impressive Pillsbury, kudos to you....keep up the great work! Be looking for these new gluten free products in your local grocery store pronto.
Have a great gluten free week, and enjoy!
