A couple of weeks ago, my friend came down from Ohio and brought me some Hampton Creek Just Cookie Dough. Apparently, you can only purchase it from the states, although sometimes certain Costco stores carry certain Hampton Creek products.
So, a little background on Hampton Creek: it is a San Francisco-based company and their goal is to make the egg completely unnecessary by replacing it with plants. The company used to be called Beyond Eggs at first, and I still can’t figure out why they changed their name: but I do know that their first product was a mayo called Beyond Eggs. The fact that this company’s goal is to create healthier and more sustainable food using plants is amazing and I’m so happy that the product tastes amazing as well! I’ve never tried any of their products but some of my friends have raved about their Just Mayo which is apparently way better than Vegenaise. And as a Vegenaise lover, that’s a bold statement to make!!
Anyways, she brought the Just Cookie Dough for me to try and I’m so happy with how they turned out!!! You can eat the dough out of the container or bake them like regular cookies. I tried both ways, but the little extra effort in baking the cookies is definitely worth it!
Using my handy dandy ice cream scoop I got from Powell’s bookstore in Portland to scoop 9 cookie dough balls onto a greased cookie tray (which was the entire container), however, you may make fewer cookies and make a fresh batch when you get that sugar craving.
I baked these cookies for 12 minutes in our gas oven and they turned out amazing! Half way through baking I patted down the cookie dough balls using a measuring cup so that the cookies turned out nice and thin. This is a neat little trick I learned while working at a cafe.
Mmmm… We let them cool a couple of minutes and ate them nice and warm and fresh. They were moist on the inside and crispy on the outside. Just what I love in a cookie.
We made the entire batch of cookies, however, I recommend making them fresh when you have a craving because they do get crispier as the days pass. Which is fine because they still taste delicious, but I really do love the moist inside of the cookie when they are made fresh!
If you want to get your hands on Hampton Creek products, you can buy some online at Amazon.ca. I’ve contacted the company and havn’t gotten a reply about when they plan on selling products in Canada but will update as soon as I get any information. The cookie dough is must try!!
