Reading the story of how they started the company was inspiring. Here's an excerpt but you will want to Read the rest of the amazing story here!

"Immaculate Baking quickly outgrew Scott’s garage and rapidly graduated to a huge facility in North Carolina. Over time, the brand expanded from refrigerated cookie doughs made with organic flour and sugar to include convenient canned dough products like Cinnamon Rolls, Biscuits and Scones and even many gluten-free options.
Nowadays, we make a whole bunch of certified organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO products that we know you’ll love because we love ‘em too.
And, after all these years, we still stick to those original values from Scott’s garage in ‘95… We celebrate creativity and soulful goodness by making honestly delicious goodies wrapped in a gallery of inspiring folk art. What’s not to love about that?" 

Cookies With A Cause

Immaculate Baking Co. has a mission giving back to the arts. That's why after the devastation in our area from Hurricane Irma I was inspired to give these wonderful cookies to my local charity. It was heartwarming to deliver 10 dozen of these easy to make healthy treats to people in need! They loved them!

Ok, guys. Let's make Holiday Gluten-Free cookies! These will be great on my Halloween party table!

All you need are these 7 ingredients! 
My special TWIST is adding Cream Cheese to your cookie mix! You can add it to any cookie or cake mix and the results are amazing! Just add a block of softened Cream Cheese and follow the rest of your mix's instructions. It's that easy. 

The result is a bit of tang that cuts the sweetness, just a little, and moist delicious cakes and cookies. You have to try it! 
Cream the room temp butter and cream cheese.

Till it looks like this and then add one egg, combine and add the vanilla, food coloring and cookie mix. 

It is orange, not pink, I promise!

Now, chill the orange dough while you roll out the Double Chocolate. Be sure to have parchment under and over while rolling!

Roll out 1/2 of the Orange dough and lay it on the Double Chocolate. You can freeze the remainder or use for your next batch!

Roll from the small end tightly, using the parchment to help as you go. 

Cut out the cookies!

Makes- 2 dozen, depending on how big you cut them.

Ingredients:
1 box (19 oz) Immaculate Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened to room temp
1 package (8 oz)  Neufchatel or regular Cream Cheese, softened to room temp
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
1 large egg

Optional- McCormick Red and Yellow Food Color to desired Halloween color, I used 1/4 teaspoon red and 30 drops yellow.

1 package (14 oz) Immaculate Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cookie dough, reserved


Instructions:

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F/ 176 C

1. In the large bowl of your stand mixer -Cream together the softened butter and cream cheese. 

2. Stir in egg and vanilla and food coloring, if using, until soft dough forms. Divide in half and chill.

3. Roll out the Double Chocolate dough to a 10x15 inch rectangle between two sheets of parchment paper. Set aside and roll out 1/2 of the Chocolate Chip Cookie mix to the same size.  Lay the Chocolate Chip cookie mix on top of the Double Chocolate layer.

4. Roll from the small end tightly, using the parchment to help as you go. 

5.  Chill the log for 1 hour or more. The longer it's chilled, the easier it is to cut. Use a large sharp knife to cut.

6. Slice cookies into 3/16" rounds. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto parchment-lined baking sheet.

7. Bake 15-18 minutes or until just firm to the touch.
