Dancing Deer Baking Co.: Gluten Free Molasses Cookie Review + Giveaway
There is a saying that references molasses that goes “slow as molasses in January”. While the origins of this saying date back to the Great Molasses Flood of January 15th of 1919, when over 2.5 million gallons of molasses from a 58 foot tank broke loose and caused a tidal wave of molasses of over 30 feet that tore the steel supports off the nearby elevated train structure.
Almost 100 years later, the term is stil used as is molasses. This simple by-product is made from refining sugarcane and/or sugar beets into sugar. The result is a slow pouring sweet syrup that when added to cookies, makes a chewy, sweet and delicious cookie.
When I recently received a press release that the Dancing Deer Baking Co had released a molasses cookie that was gluten free, I knew I wanted to give it a try.
The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Dancing Deer Baking Co, but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.
I received a couple bags of Dancing Deer Baking Co. Gluten Free Molasses Cookies by Dancing Deer.
When I received the Dancing Deer Baking Co. Gluten Free Molasses Cookies the first thing I noticed was the wonderful smell coming from the box. The box smelled of Molasses. Cinnamon and Clove, which made me even more eager to dig into the cookies.
These say they are gluten free but I am having a hard time believing it. These taste so much like the gluten filled cookies in addition to being chewy and soft. The best part is the sugar on the top of each cookie, it adds the perfect sweetness to an already sweet cookie.
The cookies also came with a note on the date that the cookies were packed, so that the recipient can make sure the cookies stay their freshest. These have a two week shelf life from the date I received them, which should be enough time to get through the 14 cookies.
In general I am a big believer in treats for gifts, since many people just love to receive a treat in the mail.
If you are a fan of molasses cookies, then give these Dancing Deer Baking Co. Gluten Free Molasses Cookies a try – you won’t be disappointed.
