It’s been a long time since I have posted any gluten free recipes like this Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookie Bites recipe. But when the opportunity arose for me to create some recipes with the new Pillsbury Gluten free products I jumped right on it.
Even though I am not on a gluten free diet, nor is anyone in my immediate family I have a couple of friends whose children are. They love it because I get to find out about new gluten free products that are coming out and after I tell them what I think about them they usually look for them in the grocery store and buy them as soon as they find them.
I also have a few gluten free readers out there. Or even readers who have friends or relatives who are on a gluten free diet. For those of you who are not gluten free yourselves please be sure to share my link with friends and family who would benefit from these new gluten free products from Pillsbury.
Gluten Free baking can be a challenge.
Even though I am not on a gluten free diet I know gluten free baking can be a challenge. I’ve read enough about it and spoken to my friends about how challenging it is. I even entertained the idea of developing some gluten free recipes for my blog. But after reading how many different hard to find ingredients went into one gluten free cake, cookie or bread recipe I decided to pass on it. Instead I can use products like the new Pillsbury Gluten Free Cookie Dough to create recipes with. This way the hardest part has been done for me.

This week I sampled the GF Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. From the first taste I knew it was going to be good. Yes I did taste the uncooked cookie dough and it tasted as good as any other raw cookie dough I have ever tasted.
Using the cookie dough as a base I decided to make some Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookie Bites. This recipe is so easy to make and you only need three ingredients including the Gluten Free Pillsbury Cookie Dough.
You will need one container of Pillsbury Gluten Free Chocolate Cookie Dough, one 10 ounce jar of maraschino cherries and 1 – 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. I used milk chocolate.
You can find the recipe directions below
