Many people these days have difficulty finding time to make their own food due to busy schedules. Homemade food tends to taste significantly better than store bought food because store bought food usually sits on the shelf losing it's freshness for days or weeks. By the time it gets to your mouth it's sometimes gotten a little bit stale. Food manufacturers often compensate for this by adding ingredients to improve freshness which also can have the side effect of changing the taste or mouthfeel of the food slightly.
In attempt to create the taste of a homemade cookies without the hassle of making them from scratch, Moo-Cluck offers Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough for your hungry hearts. Read on for our complete review.

Moo-Cluck Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough comes in a 24 oz ziploc bag. This makes it easy for you to make a small amount and save the rest for later. I should have done that because this little bag makes lots of cookies. The ingredients are as follows:

Unbleached enriched flour, whole grain pastry flour, vegan brown sugar, vegan sugar, margarine (expeller pressed natural oil blend {soybean, palm fruit, canola seed & olive oil}), egg replacer potato starch, tapioca flour, calcium lactate, calcium carbonate, citric acid, cellulose gum, carbohydrate gum), chocolate chips (evaporated cane juice, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, roasted soy flour, soy lecithin, vanilla), baking powder, natural flavor, salt.

We used a 1 ¼ inch ice cream scoop for the dough which made so many 2 ½ inch cookies we lost count. We then placed them on a parchment paper covered baking sheet and baked them for the recommended 13 to 16 minutes at 375F (191C).

The cookies turned out pretty flawless. They were crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside which in my opinion is the holy grail of a good chocolate chip cookie. The cookies were slightly oily however but this didn't effect flavor. After eating a few our fingers were covered in more oil than we expected. The folks at Moo-Cluck could probably reduce the oil by a small amount and still retain the perfect crispy chewy combination. Flavorwise, these cookies were right on track for an authentic chocolate chip cookie. We couldn't stop eating them which is the telltale sign of a good chocolate chip cookie. There were enough chocolate chips to the point of where you got at least one in every bite which is another chocolate chp cookie requirement.

Moo-Cluck did a great job with thier Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Despite the slightly excessive oil, they defintely deliver the authentic chocolate chip cookie experience and are recommended for those instances when you just don't have the time or energy to bake from scratch.
