Home Dough Frozen Cookie Dough: Great Cookies From Your Freezer

Are there days when you pace around the kitchen, wanting a special treat—maybe a fresh, warm cookie? But you don’t have the will to bake from scratch, so you keep searching. And then you give up and eat some Nestle’s morsels from the bag or some teaspoons of preserves from the jar? Not satisfying, but it has to do.

We’ve been there. And even if you can’t relate to this tale, how about this one:

You keep some packages of Home Dough gourmet frozen, individually shaped cookie dough on hand. Then whether you want just one cookie or an assortment, you just remove the required number from the package.

Then, melty, gooey, mouthwatering cookies are just 10 minutes away!

With Home Dough in your freezer, you can easily bake cookies at the last minute: unexpected guests, visiting the neighbors, movie night, or general sweet cravings.

Home Dough currently has three flavors:

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies (photos #1, #5, and #6)
  • Molasses Ginger Cookies (photo #3)
  • Oatmeal Toffee Cookies (photo #4)
    Each is a delight, with a shout-out to Molasses Ginger because…where can you find a good molasses ginger cookie?

    Gluten-free versions are coming soon.

    Founder Jami Changaris launched Home Dough after spending more than 50 years fine-tuning cookie recipes for her five children and their friends, classmates, teammates, and teachers.

    Because of the high demand, she crafted her cookie dough in balls to be frozen in advance, ready to go into the oven whenever cookies called.

    Unlike refrigerated, store-bought cookie doughs, Home Dough is preservative-free (that’s why it needs to be frozen).

    Why is it “gourmet” cookie dough?

    All of the ingredients are first-class: all-natural, mostly organic, and Non-GMO Project Verified.

    All that’s left is for you lay in a store of them. The bags of eight ready-to-bake dough balls don’t take up much space in the freezer, so there’s no reason to wait.


    And consider sending a variety pack to your favorite cookie-lover!
    > The history of cookies.

    > 30 cookie holidays to celebrate below.

    The idea to sell refrigerated cookie dough was born in the 1950s, an era time when women were largely homemakers who made almost all of the family’s food from scratch.

    Nestlé and Pillsbury introduced the first commercially-available premade cookie dough in supermarkets [source].

    Nestle sold refrigerated logs of chocolate chip cookie dough, and Pillsbury Slice ‘N Bake Cookies were launched in four flavors: Butterscotch Nut, Crunchy Peanut, Sugar Cookie, and Toasted Coconut.

    Otis Spunkmeyer introduced retail frozen cookie dough to grocery stores in 1990 (previously it was available commercially to foodservice operations) [source].

    Don’t Eat Raw Cookie Dough

    Whether packaged or home-made, Americans learned to love to eat raw cookie dough.

    But eating raw cookie dough can pose a serious health risk, namely the foodborne illnesses of salmonella and E. coli, which can arise from uncooked flour and eggs.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) strongly discourages the consumption of all food products containing raw eggs or raw flour, and Home Dough includes the warning on its bags of dough.

    So tempting though it is, don’t eat untreated cookie dough in its uncooked state.

    Yes, there are brands of edible cookie dough—including the chunks added to ice cream—that avoid these hazards by using pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour.

    Brownies and other bar cookies are included in this list. Bars are cookies because they are eaten with the fingers, as opposed to cake, which requires a fork.
