Trader Joe's Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

These cookies couldn't be easier to make. The dough comes as pre-formed lumps on a sheet of cardboard. Just plop a few of them onto a cookie sheet, bake for 12 minutes, and you have cookies.

That makes it easier to use than the tubes of cookie dough from Nestle or Pillsbury, which require spooning out (the step I always mess up; I cannot make them even). But I think the resulting cookies are not as good. Not that they're bad; I ate eight in one sitting. They're just not as tasty as other brands I've used. And they're not nearly as good as those made from the superb Gingerbread Molasses Cookie Dough--despite the fact that I generally prefer chocolate chip cookies to ginger-molasses cookies.

Will I buy it again? 

Probably not.

Nina’s View

NOM. I am not a big chocolate chip cookie fan but I thought these were wonderful. They are like brownie cookies, almost. Buy and eat them and pay no mind to my beloved’s lukewarm review.


  1. Nina -- I believe your beloved's review was tepid, not lukewarm. LOL. Always the editor... Dan in Minnesota

    1. Hmmm. I'm not sure I accept your editorial revision. Please justify.
