As much as we might want it, we can’t all whip up batches of chocolate chip cookies and perfect whoopie pies at home. Some of us just suck at baking. That’s OK no life points against the afflicted, it’s just one of those facts of life.

Luckily for everyone, the commercial cookie dough industry has got our backs. So long as a person knows how to turn on the oven and grease a cookie sheet, they can have delicious “fresh-baked” cookies fill their home with a dreamy smell and their bellies with happiness.

We’re not talking Pillsbury here though we would take one in a pinch but some seriously special store-bought cookie doughs. Some of them are vegan, some are gluten free, all of them delicious. (Most of these can be found at Whole Foods and other specialty grocers.)
