When I did this month’s coupon roundup, I noticed a coupon for a company I’d never heard of before, Immaculate Baking Company. I went ahead and printed the coupon just in case I saw them in the store and wanted to try them out. On my next trip to Wegmans, I noticed they carried several of their products in the same section as the refrigerated Pillsbury and Nestle cookie dough, rolls, biscuits, and piecrusts.
My 13-year-old was a little more specific. “We’re getting these chocolate chip cookies from now on; they’re better than yours,” he informed me. My husband really liked the cookies, too, and said I should buy them more often.
Take a look at the ingredients in the Immaculate Baking Company version of chocolate chip cookies, and then take a look at the ingredients in the Nestle Tollhouse version.
Organic unbleached wheat flour, organic light brown sugar, chocolate chips (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin [an emulsifier], vanilla extract, ground cocoa beans), organic palm fruit oil, organic evaporated cane juice, whole eggs, chocolate chunks (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, chocolate liquor processed with alkali, soy lecithin [an emulsifier], salt), water, sea salt, organic invert cane sugar, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder.
Wheat flour enriched, (flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), sugar, Nestle Toll House Morsels, (semi-sweet chocolate), (sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, milkfat, natural flavors), margarine, (palm oil, sunflower oil, hydrogenated cottonseed oil, soy lecithin, natural & artificial flavors, vitamin A Palmitate added, beta carotene (color), whey), water, corn syrup solids, eggs, molasses, baking soda, salt, sodium aluminum phosphate, vanilla extract, vanillin
I am much more comfortable feeding my family something made with the ingredients in the Immaculate Baking Company’s dough than in the Nestle dough. Although the Immaculate cookies aren’t Non-GMO verified, many of the company’s products are. They’re working to get all of their products verified.
I also noticed the words “cookies with a cause” on the packaging. Immaculate offers “in-kind donations of cookie dough (and sometimes, pre-baked cookies!) to special events.” Non-profits can apply for donations through the website.
I love to bake cookies from scratch, but I don’t always have the time to do so. Baking an entire batch of chocolate chip cookies can take a couple of hours. The Immaculate dough has just 24 cookies that cook up in about 20 minutes. If your oven fits two cookies sheets at a time, you can cut that time in half. I also like that it only makes 24 cookies – just perfect for my family of four.
I will be buying this dough from time to time, and I’m looking forward to baking up the package of biscuits that I have in my refrigerator next time I make a dish my kids call “pot on fluffy buns.” It’s basically the inside of a chicken potpie, but instead of putting it in a pie, we pour it over biscuits.
Immaculate Baking Company also has refrigerated dough for crescent rolls, scones, cinnamon buns, piecrusts and more.
Mambo Sprouts has a coupon right now for $1 off two Immaculate products.
